Jeans and Jumpers.

I was a poorly girl last week and felt rubbish with a really bad head cold.  So rubbish in fact my poor Husband got a Chinese takeaway for his birthday dinner instead of going out.  That’s how you can tell I’m sick – when I can’t even face getting dolled up and having a few cocktails – proper poorly:)  It’s taking me a while to get out of this funk and make the effort to get dressed again.  A week at home in sweatpants was heavenly.  Fortunately for those that work with me in the office I have graduated to jeans and jumpers.  There is something so reassuringly comfortable about skinny jeans, a snuggly jumper and a pair of boots.

There are some great knits available as ever and here are some of my favorites.  I have to say in my eyes Boden still do some of the best quality jumpers.

I promise myself a cashmere hoody every year and have still to invest.  Maybe Santa will oblige?

This handknitted cable sweater is relatively new on the site – and I love this color way – it’s a great update on an Aran jumper.

The Off Duty jumper maybe my all time favorite jumper.  I love the boxy cut and the merino is super soft.  They do fit large though – I ordered a Small this year and it is perfect.

The St. Ives jumper in this colorway sold out really quickly but I noticed today there are some odd sizes available so keep checking for returns.  I sized up to a US10 in this for a looser fit.

The Westbourne jumper is another favorite of mine this year.  Really soft with contrast stitching on the front and back.  Again it’s a lovely boxy fit yet not too overwhelming.  I went for a size 8 in this and it is a great fit.  They also wash really well.

My Nanna used to knit me Aran jumpers – this saves me having to get the knitting needles out – not that I could ever knit a sweater!

TopShop cable knit

This is also TopShop and I love the color, contrast sleeves and dropped shoulders.

So how are you dressing now the colder weather has arrived – are you searching for inspiration too?

Yesterday I at least tried to wear some fun trousers.

Today I’ve done the same – these Boden skinny jeans fit perfectly – the rise is great – not too high or too low.

I must learn how to use my camera on the tripod – either that or train the kids to use it:)

Shop the look!

    Joanna, great selection of jumpers. I’m a big fan of the Merino OD Jumper too – such a fab warm and flattering knit. And it washes in the machine too! Bonus. Also loving the pink jeans – gorgeous! x

      I saw you in your silver one – I wish they did the merino version in cream too – I can’t bring myself to pay the cashmere price! xx

    I love the St Ives jumper and I took your advice and had a nosey to see if there were odd sizes left. Guess who’s got a St Ives jumper winging it’s way to me.

    Glad to hear you’re feeling better and hope you and your beloved get a great birthday night out soon.

    You look fabulous in the Mango trousers! I love the Westbourne jumper too. When you say you got an 8 is that US or UK sizing?

    Loving the leopard coat too. I don’t have one and am planning to right that wrong soon.

      Oh gosh US – I’d never get in a UK 8:) We’re off out this weekend to make up for it so I WILL get my jumpsuit on!!! The Mango coat is oversized – this is a UK Medium and fits nicely – I bet you could get away with a Small too depending on how oversized you want to go… xxx

    The Boden cashmere hoodie also needs to be on my wishlist. Loving the pink trousers with the boots – I haven’t worked any of my coloured trousers with boots yet, they still feel so summery!

      These are quite a dark pink so work fine with grey or black – it’s nice to have a pop of color when all I seem to reach for are grey jumpers! x

      It’s actually REALLY warm too – I just like to try and dress like my daughter – it’s very similar to her Zara leopard print coatigan…;)

    I had the Topshop one and took it back as it looked like it would pull really easily. I then missed it went to buy another and there were pulls on it so I put it back! Love it though! I really like your Mango coat!
