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

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.

Fresh off the school run this morning;
I’m not familiar with the Only brand but can report that this jumper feels lovely (soft like cashmere!) and is wearing well. It’s also Danish, so it must be good.
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.
Blue houndstooth from Zara, grey & neon leopard print from Chinti & Parker, neon pink cashmere from J Crew, grey cashmere from N.Peal
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 am wearing it with Zara distressed boyfriend jeans and Topshop yellow suede heels.
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.
Here with Zara zebra print jeans, a Topshop black blazer and black Ash Jalouse (I am not entirely sure about this look)
I shall be adding another knit. I’m undecided between these beauties. Which would you go for?
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.
