I recently had a major wardrobe clear out. Leaving me with 2 casual jumpers. One cream. One white. Neither very Wintery. Oops

I do wish I thought everything through a little more. As in at all….

So I spent almost every afternoon last week staring into my newly streamlined, tidy wardrobe looking for something warm to throw over my dress/ tee/ shirt. Alas I was a little too ruthless and the cupboard, in knitwear stakes was worringly bare.

Have I sufficiently justified my latest purchase yet?….. Good :)


Topshop to the rescue!

I did deliberate over this though as at £36 I think it’s pretty expensive. It’s described as a “grill knit”. Think waffle. Think loose knit. Substantial but light. Length wise it skims just below the bum, with the back being a hems length longer than the front.

It’s these things that make it perfect as it’ll transfer well into Spring/ Autumn adding the much needed warmth without the unnecessary bulk of a traditional Winter knit. The fact it’s the most sumptuous berry shade is just an added bonus :)


If you like it too you can buy it here

    Would love some insight into your pared down wardrobe if you fancy sharing, in dire need of a streamline myself.

    £36 is expensive but this is such a lovely colour and looks really comfy! I haven’t quite bought enough winter jumpers myself, probably too late now xx

      Yeah, if you can hold out and you might find you can pick something like this up in their seasonal reductions. It’s so bright and sunny here today but jumpers still a must. I think we get around one week a year in Northern Ireland where knitwear is not required!
