Hooray for it finally being Friday and a long weekend no less! It has been one of those weeks that I am both proud of myself and relieved that we got through it and in light of this fact, I don’t think this jumper could be any more appropriate.
It’s safe to say I am not the first to bare all when the sun shines (in fact I am probably the last person to do that) but I also don’t believe that just because the weather is still behaving like it’s winter you should have to adopt a muted sombre palette that reflects this. Take inspiration from the spring flowers that are currently in bloom and inject some colour into your wardrobe – the simplest way to do this is with a spring knit.
The right colour on your top half can be a great way of making your complexion appear brighter i.e. your face – something I desperately need most days when I’ve had approximately zero sleep and have 5 minutes to apply my make up before Daisy is up to no good. Fortunately I’m currently having a big love in with red at the moment which warms up my skin tone so when I saw it obviously this jumper was an instant must-have.
Hinting that warmer days are indeed coming, a thinner knit holds it’s own when worn alone with jeans/wide leg trousers on milder days without fear of freezing and is also perfect for layering, teamed with a shirt underneath and a thick coat on a really baltic day (which applies to most of the days we’ve had this week).
In other news I am also yet to take off these backless loafers. I’ll be honest, if you had told me prior to getting a pair that I would embrace the trend for the half shoe/mule trend sweeping the High Street I wouldn’t have believed you but since slipping them on I wear them with everything. Given my feet are far from summer ready and slider season has not yet begun, these are an ideal transitional shoe and really quite comfortable too.
