I have no idea how to dress for this (frankly ridiculous) weather we’re having. This morning, I stood in front of my wardrobe for 20 minutes before finally deciding to give up and wear my dressing gown all day… luckily that was the moment the doorbell rang and a nice delivery man placed a package of ASOS sale bargains into my hands. I felt like kissing him (but refrained).
I bought this Whistles jumper in the ASOS sale during an ill-advised late night shopping session over the weekend. It was still £75, but I’ve come to accept this from Whistles. It’s a beautiful sky blue (not representative of today’s sky, mind) with a wide, loose knit in cotton, not wool.
Even though it may feel like October, I think wearing clothes made for winter in the height of summer looks very odd. So a lightweight knit is perfect for this mental, end-of-days weather we’re experiencing at the moment. It’ll keep you warm when the wind blows but won’t be too hot if the sun does decide to make an appearance. What a trooper.
I wore my lightweight knit with a white cotton vest underneath, then paired it with simple skinny jeans, a statement necklace and a hat to keep the rain off my face. Happy summer, everyone!
When it comes to clothing, what’s your British Summer Staple? Are you a fan of the lightweight knit?
