I don’t know about you, but I love the Autumn season, as long as the weather isn’t too damp or wet that is. But cold and crisp days are my favourite times to go walking through lovely woodlands and along the beaches, as they are a lot quieter at this time of year.
In order to really enjoy these walks, I make sure that I’m layered up when it comes to my clothing. A shopping trip was needed as I wanted to add a couple of jumpers to my Autumn/Winter wardrobe.
I popped into Debenhams, as I noticed they had a few offers on and was happy to see that some of the new season knitwear range from Principles was “buy one get the second half price”. As I wondered through the store I found a couple of soft knit ribbed jumpers in various colours from dark red to mustard yellow.
I grabbed the same jumper in five different colours as they were all stylish and gorgeous shades. A vibrant blue, mustard yellow, dark green, dark red and ivory, although there were a few more colours I could have picked, I had to limit it to 6 items in the changing rooms 😉 I also picked up a blue crochet cotton jumper just because I liked the look of it.
I tried on the blue crochet jumper and although it looked nice, it was more of a summer evening jumper than a winter warmer. Then I tried on the first of the five ribbed dolman sleeve jumpers that I’d chosen. The fit and feel of all five jumpers were amazing and I did like them all. But in the end I opted to buy just two for now.
I picked the blue and mustard as they seem to add a bit of brightness to my face and I thought they’d go lovely with my grey metallic parka coat and my navy blue regatta long quilted coat that I live in during the colder seasons.
Although it was a close call to buy the dark red and bottle green jumpers, I remembered that I have these colours in my wardrobe already, albeit in a different style. The ivory jumper was nice, but I wanted a brighter colour for the coming season.
I love the dolman sleeve on these jumpers, as they just seem to glide along my arm without feeling tight and clammy. I also love the stretchy ribbed fabric and fitted waistline which sits snugly, enhancing my shape.
A great plus also, was that at full price these jumpers are only £22 each, and with the “buy one get one half price offer”, I bagged myself a great couple of bargains.
I can see me getting a a lot of wear from these jumpers especially during the next few weeks and months. I might just have to pop back again to pick up some other colours before the offer ends 😉
