How are you all? This over fifty blogger is fine and dandy!
For some reason this jumper makes me think of Star Trek! I think possibly it's the colour or maybe the deep V reminds me of Mr Spock's pointy ears - lol, but it doesn't resemble any of the uniforms they wore!!
Anyhow, I saw this knitwear in Florence and Fred last week and nearly passed it by. You see it's not something I would normally chose, but since starting blogging I've wanted to try and step out of my comfort zone. I've grasped the art of mixing accessories on occassions, although I still like matchy matchy, like my grey, lemon and leopard print outfit, also attempting pattern mixing from time to time too. Here's gingham and floral or check out Another way with my Bias-Cut shirt!
I normally go for a plain designs, something that mixes in with anything. I've got cardigans in various colours including a black, a red and my recent addition of a brilliant pink one. They all pair nicely with much of my wardrobe, adding warmth and therefore extension to a summer outfit. When I spotted this recently I though what have I got to lose and promptly bought it! I wondered if it would look cool over jeans, especially my frayed cropped jeans.
The deep V pattern is really in your face as soon as you see it, a colour mixture that I wasn't truly happy with, red, pink and white, and where the V sits on my shoulders make them look very wide. How are you feeling about the top?
Another thing I'm not liking on me is where the jumper finishes, it's not short & fitting on the waist, but not long to cover my behind - just sitting at that non-flattering in-between area!
Have you guessed yet that I'm not really feeling my purchase? On a positive note, I quite like the stripe detail on the wrist, maybe if the neck was a circle rather than a V I might have looked more favourably on it!
I adore a white bag, and when I saw this months ago in TK Maxx I just couldn't say no! Okay, okay I didn't actually need a new white bag, but hey ho when did we only buy bags when we need them, ha ha ha! To be fair I did use birthday money so that doesn't really count does it? 😉
