The Sack-of-Potatoes Jumper

Jumper | Topshop
Denim Shirt | Topman
Skirt | Woownow
Belt | Matalan
Shoes | Converse

   Here it is, the jumper I bought that makes me look a bit like a sack of potatoes. It's not flattering, but it is versatile and cosy. It was expensive. Oh dear.

   It's this Topshop knitted grunge textured jumper. It'd probably have been a better idea for them to describe it as a tight mesh knit, that's a better way of describing the pattern on it. I had to get an 8 in it as it's so oversized - I'm usually a 10, if not a 12 in jumpers. Don't get me wrong, I like oversized, I like comfy, but not to the extent that I could fit another person in the jumper with me!

   I wish this skirt was a bit more high waisted! I do love it, but it's quite short, even when I wear it on my hips (as you can see above). Wow, this is turning into a general moan about this outfit... On a brighter note, I am so obsessed with this gold spiked necklace from New Look. I can't find it online, but they still had it in my local store earlier this week.

   After all my talk of cats, I thought it was about time to show you one! This is Dillon and he's a bit ugly, but has the biggest personality of any animal I've ever come across. He does have his cute moments though, he puts his head up like this to give me a kiss! N'awww.

  3. I know what you mean about 'oversized' jumpers. I say go with the fit you are after, regardless of the labelled size. I'm after some more cosy jumpers for the coming colder months x

  19. you dont like this outfit too much haha. i actually really love that sweater! i usually buy three sizes too big in sweaters so they can be huge and slouchy, i love how that looks! and your red pop of color from your lipstick really ties the look together. i think it's pretty :)
