OUTFIT – It’s Jumper (and Jacket) Season Again!

This is probably one of the ‘freshest’ posts I’m publishing – i.e. about something that occurred very recently. In fact, only days ago! *pats self on the back*Here’s something I wore over the weekend. I was somewhat missing Portuguese food (post-holiday blues) and so went to look for some in South London (Stockwell/Vauxhall).

I’ve had pretty much THE best summer I’ve ever experienced in London and I’m sad that I haven’t documented any of it on my blog.. but I guess it was because I was too preoccupied with having fun and living in the moment (what I do best!).  I spent SO much time in the sunshine that I sported the very rare and very surprising ‘London tan’.

It was only last week when I returned from Portugal that suddenly.. it was.. not summer anymore. It was cold! I couldn’t go out in my bikini anymore, when I practically lived in them the last three months.

I remember saying to Aysha last Saturday as we traipsed around Portobello Market, “what the hell? I just bought two jumpers. what is happening?”

One of said jumpers is the one I’m wearing in this post:

Now that it’s inevitably autumn, it’s time to think about jackets and coats! I browsed Littlewoods to see what they had available and picked four of my favourites:

1 – South Leather Biker Jacket
2 – Bellfield Rannoch Acid Wash Parka
3 – French Connection Glorious Wool Coat
4 – South Waxed Swing Jacket

Quite essential items really – a leather jacket, wool coat, parka.. You need them all to survive! These were all selected from the Littlewoods range of winter coats.

And then everything else is a bonus – hello sequin jackets, patterned neon crazy cardigans, vintage jacket with a giant unicorn head stitched on.. etc…

The great thing about Littlewoods is that you have the option of paying for your clothes in monthly instalments. Not unlike buying a car or a house. Hmm.. I can’t decide if that’s a good or bad thing.. but I guess having the OPTION is pretty handy..
