yellow and black and bows
yellow jumper :: topshop
black emabellished bow :: asos
skirt :: tailored by Top Runway, a couple of years ago now
So, I share my summer dresses, and we get a week of cold weather! Nevermind. It means I got to wear some of my Christmas presents (from me, to me, happy Christmas to meeee) and enjoy the opposite of all the flouncy, florally girlyness that summer so often demands of me. And I like a good contrast.
I bought myself – wait, I'm counting, with fingers – three jumpers and two cardigans over the past month, to really fix up a fair sized hole in my wardrobe. It was perfect timing, because the ones I like are on trend (terrible term, I can't wait for it to be passe) at the moment. Fashion can be your friend!
This one is from Topshop. I had been looking at it for a week or two, and was chuffed when it went on sale. The contrasting collar can have a very 1930's feel, especially when a bow is added. I can see a few different things being added over time!
