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

Bag: River Island

Shoes: Matalan

Sunnies: TK Maxx

    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.

    I wish spring was around the corner but looks like we are stuck with winter

    So stylish and so cozy all in one attire. That beautiful oversize sweater looks amazing paired with your leather leggings. Great choice, beautiful lady.

    Based on your freezing morning, that sweater looks perfect for that cozy warm up! I'd be living in that sweater, if I were you!

    Such a cosy and gorgeous jumper! I love it. You're lovely and slim so you can get away with the big knits. x

    What a great outfit. I never would have thought of oversized knits and leather leggings.

    i love this sweater on you! I found a Medium online and was wondering what size you're wearing because i want mine to fit oversized and chunky as well! 🙂

    Love cool sweaters with uneven hems. The texture and color on yours is so pretty, and look very chic over the black leggings. Lovely!! XOXO, Elif

    Oversized sweaters are the cosiest! You styled it in such a feminine way !

    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.

    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.


    Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.
