[Outfit: Boden jumper, Whistles scarf and boots, Cos jeans, Kate Spade bag, Livto necklace]
I love the very tail end of the sales – the final markdowns, the proper discounts, you know those 70% off ones.
This cashmere button back jumper from Boden (reduced to £44.70 from £189) in pale blue just happened to come my way the other day. Knitwear is lovely but whatever its price, and however carefully it’s looked after, compared to something like a sweatshirt or a fleece top which can be washed a million times and still look OK, it has a limited life span. For that reason I try to pick it up in the sale – as with pretty much everything I own to be honest – and then as the years pass I relegate it down the knitwear chain and finally hand it over to our 16 year old. Handy!
I thought that this jumper would go well with lots of different trousers and its slightly looser, relaxed fit works well to balance skinny trousers whilst covering parts that other jumpers just don’t seem to cover!
For anyone interested, the jumper is only available in this colour in a 6 and a 16 (although I’m about to return a size 8 as I ordered a 6 and an 8 and the 6 fits me fine.) It also comes in a pale pink colour but that one costs £74.50.
Thankfully I survived the skiing. To be honest I don’t have much choice – I have to keep on going so that I’m not left behind by the rest of the family but I think that one or two more accessories may make the experience a whole lot more palatable (tee-hee).
