Simply Green

One of my favourite colours, especially worn with black or navy blue.

Jazzy pants

Thanks to my Asian heritage, I’m neither print nor colour shy. I mean, this is nothing compared with my Asian threads. Yet, I felt as though I stood out a bit today. The fact that I didn’t give in to my desire to wear them with a bright pink top was probably a good thing. I’ll save that look for spring.

I spotted the jeans a while back in the H&M catalogue and was giving up on ever finding them online, when I spotted them instore. They’re a very flaterring fit and hold everything in, spanx style but without the discomfort. I love the graphic print and they’re a bargain at £14.99.

Statement knitwear

So, it’s time to talk knitwear. All my big jumpers are still in my winter wear box but I have a few autumn beauties I’m getting good wear from.

I love this cobalt houndstooth Zara jumper. It makes me look far too busty though. I did try it with my Zara cobalt blazer on top but it looked Sloaney and I didn’t feel comfortable at all. I am trying to think of a different way to wear it that will be more flattering. Here I am wearing it with very old ripped jeans.

Grey cashmere jumpers are more of a soft whisper than loud statement, I know. I love the softness of the two grey N.Peal cashmere jumpers I got in spring though and even more so with the addition of a rather blingy necklace which I think takes them into statement territory.

Grey, neon, animal print. My three loves. This Chinti & Parker jumper is every bit as lovely as I’d hoped. (And my smallest love has photo bombed me again!)

I love these J.Crew Cashmere Tippi jumpers. I have black, forest green and this neon pink. I did have another one but I threw it away by mistake. I want to cry just writing that.

I shall be adding another knit. I’m undecided between these beauties. Which would you go for?

Or another cashmere Tippi from J Crew in the black of heather duck grey?

There is one more contender from Chinti & Parker but it has almost ruled itself out on price. There’s only 1 left so I am not linking until I am sure I won’t be buying it! :-)

It’s the mark, I think, of a really good buy when I want to wear it the second I get it home. I actually bought this dress in the sale at Whistles a few weeks ago, but hung it up on the outside of the wardrobe so I could see it from my bed. On Friday, it got its first outing, joining me for dinner with a few friends. It was a sunny evening, so I decided to walk to the restaurant, which required flat, comfy sandals.

Saturday morning was bright, but breezy, so I chucked on jeans and a tee, but by noon the sun was high in the sky, just in time for us to see the carnival dance past, so I felt like putting on something a little looser. On went the dress again, this time with flip-flops.  Today I will have to force myself to wear something else but I’m already looking forward to wearing my Whistles dress again.
