So far I had being enjoying our glorious summer weather, I don’t think I can remember the last time the UK was graced with the sunshine for such an extended period of time. However having just got myself settle into a routine of skirts and sun tan lotion out popped the rain clouds and thunder…I’m convinced I jinxed it somehow.
This jumper, appropriately named ‘Grey Mel’ has accompanied me pretty much every day since I got it. It is so incredibly soft and comfortable; I’ve really never owned anything like it which is why it’s not left my back in days. At first I thought it would be far too hot for this weather but actually paired up with a light vest top underneath it is surprisingly cool, perfect if you want to be covered up a little more on summer evenings.
I really like how it is longer at the back compared to the front as for some odd reason this makes me feel much more comfortable, like some sort of protective layer over ones behind..any of you guys find that? No..just me then.
I had never had anything from French Connection before so I was initially wary of sizing, therefore I went with a size small which is roughly aimed at a size 10. I’m really happy with the sizing if I’m honest as the jumper fits very well yet is still baggy enough as I do like my jumpers to feel a bit bigger; I’m all about the comfort! If you too like being comfy and have fell just a little bit in love with this jumper then take a closer look over at Veronica Vhari Knitted Jumper at French Connection, they have a gorgeous mint shade in this too.
Clearly I’ve being thinking it has turned into autumn much quicker than it really has as I paired this up with some black skinny jeans and my trusty black ankle boots. I must say, putting those boots on to wear on the sodden grass made me want autumn to get here very soon, I just adore wearing these as they are so incredibly comfortable, in the words of Ace Ventura, they fit like a glove!
I’m off to go and snuggle up on the sofa in my jumper now whilst reading Gone Girl.
