how to wear a knitted crew jumper











I am so in love with crew jumpers right now. Perfect for layering in this chilly weather and let me tell you, it was a very cold day! You will be able to see from the photos how windy it was from the way my hair was blowing about!

Can you believe my daughter and fiancee both bought me this same jumper for Christmas but in different lengths! Great minds think alike! I must have mentioned that I liked them on more than one occasion. This is the one my daughter bought me as the shorter one didn't fit as well! I felt bad taking it back but I did manage to get a coat that I had been wanting in the sale with the refunded money, so all is good.

My fiancee bought me this lovely skirt and blouse for Christmas too. I was so happy with his choices, he knows me well! The blouse has such a gorgeous collar, giving the outfit a feminine look.

  4. Ok now, you have made me super nostalgic for the UK! I lived in London for almost 7 years and moved back to the US 2 years ago. I miss Primark — yes Primark! Your entire outfit is chic, but I was instantly drawn to your skirt and shoes — brilliant styling!

  8. Hi Rachel!

    I love those sweaters as well, i see them often in thrift shops - I have an over and oversize long one that i wear sometimes, maybe i should shortened it and wear it more often -
    I love the whole styling, so cute - the red booties are just so adorable and seem comfortable!

    Take care Rachel

  11. That´s such a very pretty lace collar and the crew jumper looks fine in the pics! I´d love to pair that length with a longer button down/blouse and I´m good. ;)
