If ever an excuse was needed to wear (high street) cashmere….

Outfit: Cos jeans, Next shirt, Dune boots, H&M jumper


This was the fourth  attempt at what transpired to be terrible photos so please forgive me. I know, I should be sacked as a blogger! The first ones were taken inside and were so orange, as a result of the roaring fire that we didn’t really need but which the pyromaniac 12 year old wanted to light, that I looked like I’d turned into Katie Price. The second lot were taken with the youngest indoors and me outdoors, so that she didn’t get wet but they were so dark that everything that I was wearing looked black. The third lot had bags of rubbish in the background and the fourth lot (above) well I don’t know what the six year old had been on but I wouldn’t mind some. Hic!

The purpose of the outfit – so far as there is one – is to fill you in on the H&M cashmere jumper (£49.99) which I bought a few weeks ago. There’s lots of high street cashmere around from H&M, to M&S, Boden, Jigsaw and Tesco. Last year I had a grey cashmere jumper from La Redoute and it was great, so it’s not something that you need to spend a fortune on. Although having said that, all of my cashmere is high street so I don’t really have a comparison to make and maybe others would disagree.

I really like the colour of this jumper and its slouchy fit and our youngest likes me to wear it when I give her a cuddle before bed because she finds it so soft. So that’s a fantastic excuse for wearing cashmere if ever there was one! But seriously, for anyone who finds wool too scratchy or stiff, cashmere could be the answer. In fact Mr SG is wearing a cashmere jumper today and he never wears jumpers because he hates how scratchy there are and for someone who could not give one jot about clothes, that is praise indeed.

    I've been wondering how the H&M one would wear and wash because the price is very attractive for cashmere. Love the colour on you x

    I love high street cashmere – it's served me fine so far and for the last 10 years or so. And my hubs is the same with his scratchy jumpers … same with loo roll too :o)

    I tried on this jumper in the shop because I really liked the colour. But I must say I was disappointed as the material was so thin that it was actually see through.
