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!

    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.

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