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!

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.
