Ways to Style Boyfriend Jeans | With a White Lace Sweater

White lace sweater, floral shopper & boyfriend jeans
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I’ll lust after an item for absolutely ages before getting it – especially any kind of statement piece.

And for whatever reason I did just that with this white lace sweater from Oasap. It’s the perfect accompaniment to my fave boyfriend jeans, and with that warm neck it’s just right for a still-quite-cool spring in the UK. This was worn for a Sunday shopping trip, and the tight ribbing of the sweater meant I could go without a coat… thank you springtime! I also did without a handbag and just used a fab floral shopper instead. I only ever really need to take my wallet, phone and lipbalm with me, I don’t know why we carry so much stuff in our bags all the time!

Are you coveting any statement pieces right now? Or are you, like me, carrying too much stuff in your handbag… do share in the comments!

    I do that too. I think that if it's meant to be mine, then it's going to be there when I go back to visit it. You look gorgeous. Rachel xx

    That top is gorgeous!
    My handbag is always too full. I've just bought a new one (a lusted after item for me) which is bigger, so more things can fit in it.

      Having a bigger bag is dangerous for me, Rubi – I will ALWAYS fill it!! Thanks sweetie x

    This sweater is a lovely piece. Looks fabulous on your boyfriend jeans. I had a beautiful shopper with me last week as well. Like your but in orange (as it was Kingsday and the whole of the country is dressed in orange). I know we have our handbags full, but if I don't carry it with me, I need something I left home.

      Does that mean I've changed your mind about them, Nikoline…? I'm guessing not, hehe 😉

    Wow!! LOVE the overlay on this sweater, dear Catherine…it is most certainly a statement piece!! I tend to carry a lot of stuff in my bag, too; I guess it comes from a "just in case" mentality!! Lately, of course, I've been a little limited in what I can schlep around…and I always seem to end up needing exactly the thing I left at home!!

      Why do we do it?!! I'm definitely in the "just in case" camp, hehe 🙂 Thanks M x
