Get Your Stripes


Two things to know about me, I am a huge supporter of fashion that gives back and I love Christmas, always have and always will. Now that Halloween is over, I can unashamedly gear up for Daisy’s first Christmas and it has got me ridiculously excited – even though she has no idea what on earth is going on! In preparation for the big day Matalan has cleverly combined conscious clothing and Christmas with their Get Your Stripes pyjamas in support of Alder Hey Hospital. Following the success of last year’s bobble vs beanie hats and personalised scarves the year before, these stripy slumber sets are not only the height of comfort, 100% of the profits go to the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital helping to fund the Research, Innovation and Education Centre.

Joining the novelty jumper and the onesie, in my opinion the festive pj is high on the list of must-have Christmas clothing. There are many things that make the perfect Christmas but let’s be honest there are few things more satisfying than staying in your pjs all day and binge watching classic crimbo films – Elf anyone?

For the sake of the post we of course had to put them on but they shall be going away now until the big day draws nearer when the whole family  – even Mr Style & Substance (who is even more camera shy than me so didn’t get in the shot) – shall be donning our stripes on Christmas Eve. I am not going to lie, it could even be the start of a family tradition.

Available for adults, children and even your pets, the whole family can get involved and do good at the same time. They also make a lovely Christmas gift coming wrapped in blue and white Alder Hey ribbon but be quick, they are selling out fast. Never has staying in your pyjamas all day felt so good.
