Fisherman's knit...

A good outfit can completely change the way you feel and when I was strutting round in these jeans and boots I felt pretty damn cool! This thick jumper has been invaluable in this chilly weather and has completely transformed my berry jeans into winter appropriate gear... 

Jumper: Primark, belt: vintage, jeans: Miss Selfridge, boots: Primark, hat: River Island
 A year ago you would never have seen me in an outfit like this but I have been more willing to experiment recently and hopefully it has paid off! I really loved the pairing of the jeans with the boots and I was definitely inspired by the Isabel Marant boots... 


Please excuse the slightly awkward pose, I was trying to show off the dipped back to the jumper. I have always said it is the little details that make something and it was this which first drew me to the jumper, it's especially good for keeping your bum warm if you sit down at cold bus stops! I'm not sure if technically it is a fisherman's knot but it is so chunky and cosy I think it would keep you warm, even on the high seas... 


I used this belt to cinch it in a bot and stop me looking too shapeless. It also had the added bonus of stopping drafts! 


Topped off with my favourite sparkly hat, berry lip stain and my leather jacket (which didn't photograph very well) I felt quite rock and roll, as well as being perfectly cosy, definitely a win in my book! 

What would you pair with a chunky knit like this? How do you transition clothes between seasons?

you look great. I never feel right when I put a belt over a jumper but it works so well on you - I'll have to give it another go!

Looking really rather fetching miss Fallon. Loving the jeans, boots, jumper combo- wearing something similar (although different colour pallet) myself.
