I've been trying to embrace jumpers this winter. I'm not a huge fan - I've always preferred open fronts so would tend to wear cardigans. But I spotted a couple of lovely lightweight jumpers in the charity shop a few weeks ago and decided to try them out. If it didn't work out, they only cost me £10 and it was a charitable donation so a win/win.
This one has turned out to be the hit. It's a mohair mix lightweight crew neck in a creamy colour with little pearls all over the front and the arms from Dunnes Stores and it was practically unworn - no bobbling at all.

Boots - Office (and similar here & here)
Scarf - Heatons AW12 (similar here & here)
It's just the right shade of cream for me and it's not got that tight waistband and looseness around the tummy area - a bugbear of mine with traditional cut jumpers. I wore it with an animal print scarf from Heatons, a local Irish chainstore, suede ankle boots from Office and my Specsavers leopard print glasses..
Believe it or not, when I took these photos, it was too warm for a coat - the sun randomly came out and we left the coats in the car. It was last Friday after swimming classes so not a great time to get a co-operative 4 year old photographer but they didn't do too badly between the two of them!
So with it being half term, I'm taking a break from the blog this week to spend more time with the kids and Mr SGS. I do get a bit wrapped up in this and the shop and it's easy to spend hours working on them without realising, which is fine whenever the kids aren't about but this week, I really want to do some nice family things...with photos for next week's blogs!
The shop will remain open but I am unable to dispatch items until Tuesday 5th November. To make up for this delay, until midnight on Monday 4th November, I am offering FREE UK shipping for all orders. EU shipping will reduce to £2 and International Shipping to £3.
Thanks for your understanding.
Hope you have a lovely week and keep dry and safe in this awful weather today!
