Maybe it’s because it’s been bitterly cold* in London lately, but I’ve found myself wanting to load up on jumpers. I finally took the plunge and bought this cashmere crewneck from Uniqlo in black today when I spotted it on sale for £49. It’s such a classic piece, I can image myself wearing it for many seasons to come. But it’s not just basic black staples that are catching my eye. I’m also coveting all of the colour-block jumpers.
If you’ve been in a relationship for between two weeks and one year, Valentine’s Day is a special time to get all dolled up, shave your legs, spring for a blowout and a mani-pedi and enjoy an over-the-top romantic date night with your man. However, if you’re single or have been in a relationship for longer than a year, it’s pretty much just a normal day that happens to fall at a time when there’s loads of hearts and pink stuff in the store windows.
Here in London it’s not quite cold enough yet to be wearing chunky outerwear. Now normally I would not be complaining about that (trust me, one thing I don’t miss about NYC is the insane winters) – but I’m having a really difficult time waiting.
