[purchase/affiliate] Okay, so first question of the day is who did not brush their hair after taking off their hoodie to do a couple of quick snaps of their new sweater? Yes, busted. Having startled the life out of myself last week by buying a bright pink jumper, I picked this safe option black collared sweater up yesterday in my local H&M – £17.99 and 52% recycled polyester I couldn’t leave it sitting there. It’s not fancy but I know I will wear it to pieces because I love a sweater with a collar and they are few and far between.

It’s slightly over-size (more on this next week) and I’m wearing it with a Uniqlo bra top because the plunge is too much for me (and I like a bit of a plunge). I started off with a lacy bra top but then my stomach felt cold so I reverted to the full length bra top (okay, yes, a vest with a bra in it…) which is a temporary stop-gap until I can find something satin-y or lacy in a full length.

I don’t mind at all that it’s synthetics – it’s so soft and in terms of non-scratchy and skin comfort, it’s next to cashmere on that front. In fact, I’m probably going to go back and get the oatmeal option. It hits at just below the bum which is my comfort zone for sweaters (I’m 5ft 3ins) and is blocky enough not to hug any curves which again is my comfort zone (my mum calls them droopy clothes!). It’s HERE.
