Look good while telling the world how you feel with this stylish grey sweatshirt. Whether aimed at your kids, the gym or your job - we've all had days when we've wanted to say this.

None more so than my friend Katie who inspired the sweatshirt and has faced more than her fair share of daily battles. Her three year old daughter Hattie has been bravely battling leukaemia for over a year now and has had to endure numerous hospital stays and round after round of lumbar punctures, spinal chemo and general anaesthetics. I happened to bump into her on a morning she was particularly distressed:

'For the 300th time my Hattie got admitted to hospital I almost had a melt down at the school gates when I couldn't speak about how annoying it was any more....and seeing as gin and tonic at 9am is frowned upon I asked please someone make me a "Not Today" badge!!!! This is my "I can't handle the world today" jumper, its meant with all the love but not today peeps!'

As September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month we thought it was a perfect way to try and raise some money so 10% of all sales of the 'Not Today' sweatshirt will be donated to Cancer research UK kids and teens fund. The sweatshirt comes wrapped in tissue paper making it an ideal gift for an exhausted new mum or anyone who needs some time out from daily stresses.

The lightweight grey sweatshirt by brand Fruit of the Loom has raglan sleeves which make the garment hang better on the body. It has side seams to give a fitted shape and a cotton/Lycra rib to the neck, cuffs and waistband to help with shape retention. The sweatshirt is available in sizes extra small, small, medium and large.

The 'Not Today' lightweight sweatshirt is made from 80% cotton and 20% polyester. Recommended sizes for women: XS - UK 8, S - UK 10, MED - UK 12, L - UK 14 XL - UK 16. Please note these are a 'slim fit' sweater so come up small. If you like your jumpers baggy order a size up!
