knitted jewel.

As the sun creeps through the curtains I find myself drifting towards the lighter pieces within my wardrobe, only forever caught out by the sneaky chill that still prevails. The bright light is always deceiving. 
This insanely oversized knit seemed a great choice, with it's open back, and looped knit you could get lost in for days. Keeping it on is another story all together... it certainly doubles up as a luscious blanket for chilly nights. Possibly embarrassed to admit... I have this in 2 colour ways..thankyou Topshop Boutique- I have a feeling you will be even more awesome this coming Winter!


What are your favourite areas to shop at Topshop... mainline, trends, boutique, unique, independant designers or collaborations??


After much deliberation wedge-wise I finally settled on these high maintenance sandy suede numbers, and once tuned in to the rocking sensation I'm away! 
Always a sucker for nice packaging I was a little disappointed these didn't come in the special box the Topshop clogs were in!
(I had to pass up on the Jeffrey Campbell Charli, or the Topshop slingback clogs for these- finally defeated by footwear- such a struggle to walk in them.)

  11. What a great look! The sun was also shining here, but I was freezing with my silk military blouse, flats and trenchcoat on! I really don't like days like this, just give me the full sun or the cold haha!

  12. hello :) I looooove your whole outfit. that knit/sweater dress is beautiful. love your purse, and shoes.... (like i said earlier... love all of it.. haha) and yes you are right about the charli clogs, I got them in the tan, i love them, but kind of wish I had settled for a clog with a strap. I later saw an amazing pair of black clog like sandals from ZARA, that i wished I would have gotten instead.

    Oh by the way, I see that you're from the UK. I'm planning to move to London this September (just hoping the fashion job pulls through for me). Crossing fingers!!! UK is the best...can't wait!
