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!
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.
Boots – Isabel Marant Dicker // Trousers – Mango // Jumper – Boden St. Ives
Coat – Mango
Today I’ve done the same – these Boden skinny jeans fit perfectly – the rise is great – not too high or too low.
Boots – Grey Nubuck Newbury boots // Jeans – Boden // Jumper – Westbourne sweater Boden // Scarf – H&M
I must learn how to use my camera on the tripod – either that or train the kids to use it:)
