Oversized side split knit with faux leather leggings


Whilst it's still winter here in the UK (minus 2 last night people... and my delightful son managed in his curiosity to flick the external switch for the boiler last night, and let me tell you getting up this morning was painfully cold!!) So layers and big warm wooly knitwear was called for, but to be honest i didn't mind too much as i absolutely love this knitted beauty. The side split knit. I bought this just after Christmas pre shopping ban when i did a big H&M haul, ( i believe it went down to something ridiculous in the sale too..oh my, how i miss H&M). Paired with my faux leather leggings and heels to up the smart stakes, but still the oversized knitted jumper feels like a giant cuddle. And giant cuddles are always welcome in my book. 
This afternoon i changed the shoes to my trusty Lotus boots and upped the comfort levels even more, gimme a couple more hours and i'll up those comfort levels to pj's and slippers.. but for now, my cuddly jumper will keep me warm.











Side Split oversized knit: H&M (sold out now i believe)
Faux Leather leggings: New look

Are you still in knitwear or is spring rearing it's head with you yet?

  1. I love this knit! It gorgeous and looks really cosy too. I'm definitely going to be wearing my jumpers for a while longer so it might be time to invest in a few more.

  26. I adore this look, Rachel. If I could steal the knit sweater & faux leather pants right off you, I would. Ok, I wouldn't, but I really really like it.

  27. I alway love the look of oversized sweaters but it never looks good on me. Love how you added those pretty earnings and heels to glam up the outfit.
