Getting Cosy In A Star Jumper by Simply Be

Brrr Autumn is here

Well theres no escaping it Autumn is definitely here. Its cold, its windy and my garden is full of Halloween decorations. When the weathers like this I want comfort and warmth but not at the expense of style.
I usually avoid the jumper like the plague but Ive made an exception for this one.
I love the idea of sloppy Joe style over sized jumpers but rarely wear them as they always make me feel a bit "lumpy' and even plain coloured ones can look a bit middle aged especially when they have a round collar. So I was chuffed to find this sweater by Simply Be which seems to navigate itself quite neatly into the cool jumper category.
I don't feel too lumpy in this sweater

The Jewel colours are perfect for this time of year and the slashed neck and great shape mean I feel cosy but not frumpy.I love the star design and purple arms. yet again they stop it feeling like I am all jumper which when you have big bangers is easy territory to slip into.
Just because I'm wearing something less fitted it doesn't mean I don't want to inject some glamour and my Vivienne Westwood croc bag is just the ticket.
My favourite Vivienne Westwood bag-making its return for Autumn
Ive coupled it with a skater skirt, some black leggings and to ensure I still feel edgy some leopard print creepers.
A cute little headscarf matches the pinky purple theme

Ive tied one of my fave rockabilly headscarf's around my head and have gone for pinky hues in my make up and lippy. I'm ready to face he blustery weather and feeling fabulous.

Join My "This Outfit Make Me Feel Fabulous "Project
If you enjoyed seeing my outfit I would love you to join my new project celebrating the amazing style of normal women.
Last week I asked people on my facebook page to attach pictures on my timeline of outfits which make them feel awesome and the response has been wonderful. I'm already blown away at how stylish they all look and would love to roll the idea out so it becomes a regular blog feature.Here is a vlog I filmed about this idea.

I can't do this alone so if you would like to be involved you can either attach a picture to my facebook time line or email me me a photo. Include a few lines about why you love the outfit and where it was from.

  1. I was wondering what I would look like in that jumper, because you look fabulous in it, but lets be honest you are a pretty glamorous lady. Then I wondered if you have considered one of those dress hop ideas? You get a dress in a loose-ish size and then ask other bloggers to sign up for a dress blog hop. Each blogger gets sent the dress one after the other and they have to wear it in their own style, blog about it and post it on. I am sure you have seen it before? You have a very cool bunch of readers, I bet they could do wonders with a simple black/red/white/ etc dress. Maybe a project for new year? I would love to see it on plus size ladies (like myself), because its mostly been skinny minnies I have seen on other blogs.

  2. You look awesome! Great to see a comfy, casual but still über glam look :) fabulous x x

  3. Love it! It has actually reminded me I have an 80s style purple slash neck jumper with applique stars I have NEGLECTED to wear! Why?? Out with boring woollies, in with fun ones!
