Pink gingham and pearls





















For a sweater that I ummed and aahed over whether to keep or send back [to ASOS] last year, I have worn it a LOT since I bought it.

For some reason it just works with everything - I wore it with hot pink in November and it proved very popular... so I paired it with pink again, plus my favourite statement necklace and boyfriend jeans: this is my favourite outfit so far with this sweater I think :)

Plus for those of you who've been commenting on my manicures lately (thank you!) - I'm sorry but I like to give my nails a rest now and then... they'll be back though, don't worry!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend, lovely people!



Sweater: ASOS similar, Shirt: Marks & Spencer, Jeans: La Redoute similar, Heels: ASOS similar save / similar splurge, Sunglasses: Therapy at House of Fraser similar, Feather hairband: Accessorize similar, Necklace: Gift (Coast), Watches L-R: Gift / Fossil / Debenhams, Bracelets: Gift similar (save) / similar (splurge), Rings: H&M similar / ASOS, Nails: Given the day off ;)

  1. Jeans are vile. The work of the very devil. But they look good on you. The rest of the outfit is fabulous.

  2. Those shoes are fab! The color of the sweater is so beautiful. I think it would go with navy, brown, black...oh gosh, almost everything! It is such a pretty color.
