It's Sweatshirt Time!

Would you believe I didn't buy anything after Christmas till last week. I mean I was busy and being kept out of online shopping trouble and disliking the January jumble sales really helps but all of a sudden, I got the twitch and did some browsing and boom, I bought ....

.... a sweatshirt. Which doesn't sound very exciting but I was quite excited as I've been stalking The Great sweatshirts since I came across them last year and then spotted the below one in the Net a Porter sale. And I have to say it's the most perfect sweatshirt - in my eyes though maybe not anyone elses. It's a full cotton one and has that lived in look like a proper throwback sweatshirt from the seventies which has gone through the wash a lorra lorra times.

Now you know me, I'm no style shaker or anything like that (nor do I want to be), I like my clothes simple and practical and you can probably guess how I'm wearing this already.

For now ....

Zara Double Breasted Coat (limited sizes left)
The Great Sweatshirt (limited sizes left)
Gap Girlfriend Jeans (current ones online)

The Zara jacket I also picked up in the sales last week (it's all coming out now) and it was there at the front of the store just on it's own in my size as I went in. I took it as a sign that it was meant to be. So I walked to the nearest mirror, tried it on, took it to the tills. Job done. Sometimes, you just know. And thank you to Caroline for alerting me to this - I didn't think it would fit me and that it would be too oversized but it is infact, just right.

For the spring summer months, I'll be in some variation of this  ....

I've been having a bit of a thing for my Gap girlfriend jeans these last few months - not skinny, not baggy but with just enough shape to make you look pulled together. I have two pairs of these, one in my regular size for when I want to eat and one in a size down to give that slimmer silhouette - best worn early in the day before too much food consumption. And those new on the block Topshop Editor jeans look good and worth a nosey at - nice wash/finish to them and a straighter leg which is perfect for leading in to the warmer months. I'll be checking those out!

Bags, bags - you know I love a good tote and I spotted that cute little cherry one for adding that throwback seventies summer vibe. And talking of seventies vibes, do you like the Zara wooden bead one? I do. It reminds me of a woven tote I picked up last year in Topshop - I like what I like after all. And the warmer months are when I start wearing a little arm candy and having been introduced to Lucas & Stone when my buddy Bean bought me one for a present, I'm now looking at their other leather bracelets - tan is always a good option for summer. Yes?

And footwear, depending on how warm, pick your poison. Slides, sandals, skate pumps and my personal fave - the white trainer - it all goes. Well at least in my eyes.


Last Note :

  • I bought a couple of other sweatshirts recently but both have sold out so I can't link you to show you but I thought I'd leave you with these few which I thought were worthy a look. The Swilsden one is my favourite ;)


  1. Fab blog and I’m tempted by the sweater it’s gorgeous!!! ����

    1. Thank you! It's a lovely sweater but it does definitely look worn in but I like that kind of look about it - it might not be for everyone. Best to look at the stock photos rather than just the way I've worn it. x

  2. I agree about gap girlfriend jeans - they’re so good!
    This whole outfit is too cool!
