Autumn and winter are my favourite seasons and my wardrobe reflects that. I am waiting for the opportunity to wear all the lovely woollens that are filling my wardrobe, wrap myself in a blanket on the sofa and drink copious amounts of hot chocolate. I love autumn because:
- The weather gets cooler and it’s more socially acceptable to wear jumpers and wooly tights and be wrapped up in blankets. I spend most seasons like this!
- The way the outside changes, from to green to red and orange.
- Lighting fires and candles as the nights draw in.
- Heading out on long walks, with scarves and gloves
- The perfectly acceptable excuse to hibernate (I’m dreaming about hibernating in the picture below. Don’t think Naomi Campbell has got anything to worry about from me!)
I do love a good jumper too. So much so that when it’s warm and it’s too hot to wear a jumper, I’m at a loss as to what I should wear! It’s also one of the reasons I love Harry Potter so much. Hermione has such a great jumper selection. I would love her wardrobe! So when the folks over at Barbour asked if they could send me a jumper, I was so excited! And I’ve been waiting and waiting for the weather to get cool enough and for autumn to actually arrive before I wrote about it. (So long summer, you’ve outstayed your welcome!)
I love this (c/o) jumper, it’s warm enough that you can wear it on it’s at own but also roomy enough to add layers underneath when it gets colder. I’m also really like that the v neck isn’t that low, as it means you don’t *have* to wear something underneath if you don’t want to. It’s also smart enough to wear to work or the office, and wouldn’t look out of place down the pub or on a ramble in the country. Whether you want to dress it up with a scarf, dress it down with a gilet and jeans, it’s going to be my go to jumper over autumn and winter for sure. All I have to do is make sure I don’t ruin it in the wash and it should last for ever. Now that’s what I call a good jumper! I think it would look great with these:
Roskestal Skirt – Seasalt // Smithy Bootcut Jeans – Fat Face //
Courtney Black Shoes – Bourgeois Boheme // Chelsea Boots – Wills //
Pair the jumper with the skirt and heels and a funky pair of woolen tights and you’ve got a great Sunday lunch outfit. Heading out for a brisk walk with the dog? Throw on the jumper with the jeans and these Chelsea boots and head out on a ramble! The perfect Autumn outfit!
Are you looking forward to changing your wardrobe and adding woollens and tights? Or are you missing the summer already?
*Disclosure: I was sent the jumper for review purposes. As ever, opinions are my own.
