A Smart Jumper

For many years I had been into all things slouchy and oversized. I would wear tops hanging down my knees because a) I wanted to show everybody around (god knows why) I did not care what I chose to throw on b) I was convinced it's a great way to hide your voluminous body (thanks mum) c) I had to hide my oversized body (thanks mum). Even though I might have liked to mooch around in a 5 sizes too big knit when your family is trying to convince you you're a few sizes up than you truly are then something's definitely not right about that. It was comfortable but was it really?

I still love a good jumper, in fact it could be my favourite piece to buy. Things have changed dramatically though, I like it quite fitted. Paired with an A line skirt + black opaque tights there you have it, after years of trying to define what my own style is I think this could very well be my default one. Fitted, high neck knits are a bit more dressy and always make me feel a wee bit more special.

In my previous entry I mentioned New Look's stripy high neck top which I've been wearing constantly. And I found a great festive knit in TK Maxx a while ago (Yes I've been wearing it all the way through September to October, there's no stopping me. I need more of that, I do!). I honestly no longer care if it's an unembellished grey one or a striped one, as long as it hugs my body well I welcome all the colours and patterns.
