[unpaid/purchase/affiliate] You know when you spot something and press ‘buy’ immediately without even thinking twice? Well, that, with this.
I’m really supposed to be not spending having had a flurry in the New Year sales but I couldn’t leave it. It’s black and white although confusingly the Mango site has it listed as blue in a cotton but styled with black leather(ette) trousers so I took the chance. It’s a cotton blend (70% cotton with viscose and polyester which makes it a very soft mix) and an oversize – the Medium is a perfect loose fit for my size 12 frame. The sleeves are slightly belled and it’s a turtleneck so doesn’t do the chin rub of a polo. The thing about it is that it’s a happy thing – made even more cheerful by a red lipstick – someone commented on Instagram that they love a red lip with stripes and never a truer word! I automatically went for a bright orange red (Chanel Rouge Coco Flash in Ferveur – not in stock in the UK but available in the US) although any brights work well. The sweater is £49.99 HERE, non-affiliate HERE.
It’s still very new so I’ve only worn it with jeans so far and haven’t put it through a wash yet. It’s not as warm as wool but I can’t say I’ve been chilly. Anyway, I wanted to start the week with something fun and bright – I’m actually standing in my bath for most of these pictures just to give you a dash of realism not having the kind of house with a huge bathroom and multiple windows :-). Sizes go from XS to L and there’s no near equivalent in Plus Size just yet.
