Wardrobe Staples | The Grey Jumper

Stylonylon | Gap | Danse Lente | Marks and Spencers | Petite Studio | Joseph The old “if it works, buy more” adage โ€“ ok, I may have just made that up, lol โ€“ but for those of us who like certain things A LOT, repeat buying variations of being a non-questionable given, then wardrobe staples is rightly their title. The first in a new blog series, let’s take a look at the grey jumper…

I have a few ๐Ÿ˜‰ But the ones that have really jumped (oh-er, pun alert) to the forefront this month for me are the slimmer ones, cut to fit well on the shoulders and which aren’t too bulky beneath a jacket or blazer. As we’re still in winter the trick is two vests btw…

The Jumpers

I normally like a relaxed neckline, more elegant, but I was pleasantly surprised by the slightly stretchy fit of the high neck of this Baukjen knit. And instead of sizing up as I normally would I went for my size and am so glad I did! Love how it sits. The completely plain knit is by Gap and one that I’m already kicking myself for not also getting in a lighter grey and the shoulder detailed knit is by Wyse London, which I’ve had for a while now and needs a little piling attention.

Jackets In Faux

There’s a whole lot of aviator and shearling jacket love going on at the moment โ€“ but the truth is as well as being scared off by the pricepoint of real ones, I also find them way too heavy lol. So actually faux shearlings bring them on โ€“ I’m really impressed by these two by Amazon fashion โ€“ the black one and theย camel oneย (on sale!) โ€“ and also this faux Mango biker is worth taking a look at.

The Bag Situation

Big life changes are often followed by seemingly unconnected smaller changes. After a tough last year re health stuff (seemingly all ok now, phew!) I splashed out on a mega Xmas present to self and bought one of these โ€“ a Loewe Hammock โ€“ albeit second-hand from Vestiaire. But while I cannot love it more, this year does not see me manically pursuing the super expensive handbag route as intoxicating as it can be. What does catch my eye and my wallet readily though is exquisitely designed and forward thinking shapes like the Staud bucket and, my most recent discovery, the Danse Lente Phoebe bagย โ€“ which, can you believe can actually fit my Pen F and large lens! Plus the regular purse and bits. I am extremely in love.

Where To Start

Iย  love the idea of outfit starting points. Tbh it’s usually a pair of jeans for me โ€“ I like things simple โ€“ but start with a grey jumper and who knows what can happen; I find myself refreshingly off-piste with these brilliant M&S trousers โ€“ rolled up and belted for a more relaxed look. And to finish, a blazer these days is quite the thing it seems, I love this made-for-petites boxy one from New York’s Petite Studio. Yes, I paid duty, but it was pleasingly low!
