Knitted.


One of my favourite things to hunt for in charity shops is knit wear. I found this light weight jumper in my local charity shop and was cheap as chips at £2.50.
It has THE softest texture and I really like the length of the sleeves - it brings a slightly snug feel and I think looks flattering on all figures.
To show off the cute collar, I decided to wear my hair up in a top knot with a little plait at the fringe.



I paired the top with my go to skater skirt from Topshop. This has had so much wear over the summer and will continue to be a firm favourite as we delve into the colder months with tights and booties. I really like the pastel blue with the cream, the colours compliment each other well and still give a vibe to the cosier elements if this outfit.

I added my high top converse to give a preppy edge and think the white ties in nicely with the other pale colours.
I have had such a love/hate relationship with converse - my first ever pair destroyed my feet until they FINALLY wore in, but now they are the comfiest shoesies ever. The exact same thing is taking place with these... WHY DO THEY TAKE SO LONG TO BE MY FRIENDS?! Is this just me and my feet or have you had this too? :( Sadness.





To accessorise this casual look, I added a black faux leather belt with silver studded crosses to add an element of grunge. I think a plain belt would look equally as nice but glad I went for this as it adds a little interest to an otherwise quite plain outfit.

My rings highlight the silver studs in the belt and are a mix of stones and metals to create a simple, eclectic payoff.
I love this finger ring from Dotty P's, it always gets compliments when I wear it and toughens up every outfit.
The turquoise ring came in a set from Primark in the summer and looked great with a tan after my hols!
The midi ring worn on the same finger also came in a set, this time from TopShop. There is a little teeny pink gem in the middle which I normally am not fond of but teamed with the other rings, I think it looks really pretty.

On my talons I am wearing Papaya from the Barry M Gelly range. This colour is so pretty and vibrant and clashes well against the paler colours in the outfit.
Here I have only used one coat and you can see how bright the colour pay off is! Juiiiiiceehhh!

To stop my other arm being boring, I added a watch as always, opting from the silver Casio to tie in with the other metals in this look.

I think this is a great, comfy, snug outfit for casual weekends or date nights to the cinema.
To dress up this combo I would add a black structured bag and swap the Converse for brogues.
