I’ve been anxious and excited about posting this, lets be honest, everyone and her dog now writes a blog and with the web becoming saturated with food, fashion and mummy style what makes me think I can do it any better? Well I cant promise that I can, but with fresh time on my hands now that I’m not needed as much as a full time mummy it was try to get a job or give this a go. I’ve been out of work for 11 years therefore going for a job interview scares the bee gee gee’s out of me! So here I am, trying this. I’m petrified. I’m giddy. I’m worried about what you the reader will think of me [oh god, please let there be at least one reader!] I’m also nervous about showing more of me than just a few artistically shot Instagram pictures! But if I keep putting it off I’ll never know and surely to try and fail is better than never trying at all?! I mean, who knows, it could be great!
I’m going to write my first post about something I love, knitting. Noooo, don’t click the x! I promise I’m not going to bore you with talk of knit a row purl a row or try to convince you to knit! It’s more about my love for knitwear! If you do happen to follow me on Instagram you’ll know I’m a huge fan of chunky knits [so much so I have knitted my own] but with autumn and winter fast approaching I wanted to talk about the best I’ve found on the high-street and share some images which will be inspiring my wardrobe for the next season or two.
For me it has to be oversized. I love the look of a huge swaddling jumper. It says the cold weather is here and I’m going to protect you. This look ticks all the boxes and with the help of H&M I’m able to recreate a similar outfit.
I love this one from ASOS
Its no surprise to know that I love a cardy.
I fell completely in love with this image from The Working Girl and although the I Love Mr Mittens cardigan is my ultimate I need to own you item, the price tag and my husband said no. I didn’t let this deter me though so I picked up my needles and made my own.
I love and have just ordered this navy blue one from Topshop at £39 it’s a steal! [it also comes in black too!]
I’ve sized up for that slouchy look.
I may have popped this into my basket too…. Just to see what its like…
And heres some inspiration to keep you cosy in these colder months…
Thank you for reading xx
