In the Details | The deep V-backed jumper

This jumper was one of my sale purchases from a while back. During the Zara sale I waited until towards the end of it and scoured the site for any great finds that no one else had spotted and this jumper was one of them.

As you know, I am invested in finding interesting pieces this year and the idea of a reverse sweater ticked all of those boxes. Although you run the risk of a cold back this winter I liked the idea of a simple sexy.

So far I have mainly paired it with jeans for casual Sundays but I see it having potential for more dressed up outfits. I like the idea of mixing it with different textures and shapes like my grey midi skirt and a fancy necklace.

I’m on a mission. A colour mission. I may have  mentioned this before but back in university my wardrobe considered off four colours, black, white, red and navy. Don’t get me wrong this made dressing pretty easy and let me be pretty put together at all times, but you know what else? It was incredibly boring. Yep you heard that right, dressing, boring? so incredibly boring.

So as I do I set out on a mission to not only focus on better quality (less cheap bulk buys – le sigh) but to also make sure that each piece can both fit in with my wardrobe and be well loved and remixed but to also be at the same time completely different!

I am really trying to not only inject some much needed colour but to also add patterns and interest and I hope with paying that little bit more that I will also get some more textures and often its the little fancy extras on a piece of clothing (like a little bit of velvet covering the seems) that just adds to that wow I feel good factor! and who doesn’t want that?
