navy and white jumper | primark
black fine knit | h&m
high neck camel jumper | new look
navy fine knit | zara
hurrah the season of sweaters and scarves has arrived! I love the crisp air of autumn (and with it the excuse to layer up and burrow into cosy knitwear.)
yes it's goodbye to the bikini diet- you'll find me tucking into all the casseroles and crusty bread I can find until january.
so before my annual winter hibernation begins I though I'd share a few new finds with you. I picked up a few new jumpers- I'm really loving fine knits which are a little less bulky so they're perfect basics to wear under statement coats or tucked into jeans. good places to track them down are & other stories, h&m, cos and zara.
I also found a couple of chunkier jumpers, my favourite being the high necked camel one above that's a perfect in between... not too long but short enough to suit high waisted garms. it's not a skinny fit don't be fooled by the ribbing you can actually wear this without having to breathe in all day (phew.)
tartan and cream knitted scarf | primark
scarves are my heroes on days when I throw on a basic tee and jeans, they dress up even the simplest of outfits (and make it look like you've made a smidgen of effort when you haven't.)
these are both primark and I don't expect them to last long as all my others have bobbled and frayed after a few weeks of wear but they'll tide me over until I find 'the one'
..I'm after a nice cashmere blanket type scarf so if you have any recommendation let me know!
fur stole | new look
faux fur chain bag | new look
it wouldn't be autumn without the arrival of faux fur into my life! I've never bought a stole before, every year I toy with the idea so I just went ahead and grabbed this long line version on a whim. I figure it could be an easy way to dress up my coats this season and it really wasn't a big spend so I won't feel too bad if it's not used often.
...lets take a moment to appreciate this furry new look bag though.. POW! I adore crazy coloured fur so I did a little squeal when I saw this bad boy. totally impractical maybe? but it was a bargain so I'm going to try and squeeze it into as many outfits as I can this month.
