I really did need some knitwear – or so I told myself as I exited Zara and then Primark some time later. There’s certainly a pinch in the air now and having had a wardrobe clear out not so long ago, I wanted some knew pieces to play with. Naturally I turned to my faves, Primark + Zara.
Without sounding cliche and super unoriginal, Autumn is my favourite season and I love dressing for Autumn even more. Chunky knitwear, layers, ankle boots, thick scarves and jeans, without having to resort to the faff of huge, heavy Winter coats, hats and gloves.
I’m really loving primary colours at the moment, mustard shades being my hue of choice (And everyone else!) I love the vibrancy they add to my everyday looks, nevermind how cheery they make me feel.
First up are a pair of slippers from Zara Home. Yep, you might be thinking what on earth are those Crocs esc, clogs (#clothesmyboyfriendhates) but I LOVE THEM! They’re a Birkenstock base with a velvet cover so as you can image, wearing them is like walking on a cloud. I like that I can wear them in the garden and round the house all thanks to grippy soled bottoms. I have barely taken them off my feet since I got them…not matter how insulting people are about them!
I haven’t worn anything with a dip/asymmetric hem since my year 13 prom however, I can confirm that I was suckered by the vibrant, sunflower yellow shade. The oversized shirt is from the TRF collection and is a really thick, sturdy shirt that I like to layer under jumpers. I’ve mostly been going to this as a throw-on-and-go piece with faux leather leggings and boots to keep things simple, but tailored.
I have an obsession with chenille as it is super soft and luxe – but also washes really well without going to shit. I found this navy blue, oversized jumper in Zara for around the £30 mark . I got mine in a size medium however, it is so oversized that it fits like an XL. If you’re contemplating this jumper, that’s a factor to be aware of.
Also, a chenille jumper is this gorgeous mustard number. This one is from Primark and was about £14 something like that. It fits true to size and again, washes super well. The purple one, pictured above is also from Primark and the quality rivals similar styles I’ve seen in places like M+S.
