The Jumper Challenge (i love me some knitwear)

Each autumn/winter/spring-who am i kidding- all year around, I love me some knitwear. Thin knit jumpers. thick sweatshirts or drapey cardigans. I just love ’em. So when Matalan asked if i would like to get involved in their Jumper challenge and style up one of their new gorgeous sweaters, well i jumpered (ha) at the chance. The jumper is this delightful zip back number, which has the loveliest dipped hem. I chose the neutral cream colour and i flippin’ love it.
Lately when i add something to my wardrobe it has to be multifunctional (did you see my one dress 2 ways post?)
So I wanted a smart sweater that would look equally good casual (im thinking some khaki joggers would look awesome) but also dressed up for some food out or what not.

I chose some pretty strappy heels, to set off the last of the summer vibes and as a nice contrast  against the knit, then some soft light blue skinny jeans and then just added some statement jewellery to finish.
I absolutely loved this outfit, it was comfy and perfect for the chillier days we’ve been having.
In the day i swapped the heels out for some black slip on sneakers and then for night i just added the biker jacket and snazzy heels.
The bag is also from Matalan, and is more than a little bit Rebecca Minkoff but without the hefty price tag, and i could not be more pleased with it!

There is going to be a competition with Matalan over on Facebook to see who styled their jumper the bestest.. Be sure to check it out here, and if you’re feeling generous, you could always give me a like? 😉

Are you a knitwear fan like me?

* Just to clarify here for my international friends that ‘jumper’ means sweater here in the UK.. i know in some countries its a completely different article of clothing.. bizarre i know.
