Happy New Year! I hope you all had a fantastic New Year’s Eve. I spent yesterday recovering from a very late night and a few glasses of wine 😉 I’ve caught up on my sleep and now feel almost back to normal. I just need to take the Christmas decorations down now.
My Instagram win tunic jumper
In the run up to Christmas I took part in a few Instagram giveaways and won this green zebra print tunic jumper from Bonmarche! It’s from the new Join Us range of knitwear featuring jumpers, cardigans and coatigans. I was invited to select an item from the collection, and this zebra print tunic really caught my eye. It’s also available in other colours, but I particularly love this bright green version.
In terms of fit it could be better. I’d have liked it to be a couple of inches longer and not so wide on the hips. This is a S/M and it’s quite baggy. The only review of it on the website also says it’s too big. Maybe a wash and drip dry will improve the fit. On the plus side though, it’s a lovely soft yarn and the cowl neck can be pulled down to wear off the shoulder.
I’ve worn it over tights, but it would look great over leggings or jeans too. If I wear it with tights again I’ll choose some thicker ones because the tunic is just a bit too short for sheer tights (well for me anyway). I decided on the long boots because my legs felt a bit exposed (and cold!) but I did have fun trying ankle boots in various colours with it.
The faux fur backpack was a Christmas present from my husband; I saw it in TKMaxx when we went to Nottingham for a work reunion and he offered to buy it straight away…and I thought I already had too many bags! I’ll never say no to another one 😉
I picked up these green and gold earrings in Tesco when I was doing some last minute Christmas shopping. They were reduced from £8 to £3! They match the jumper perfectly 🙂
I had to wear a hat because my hair is not behaving at all since I had it cut last week. The air must be very dry because it’s full of static and a nightmare to style. Luckily I’ve got plenty of hats to cope with bad hair days!
How’s the new year started off for you? Are you raring to go or still recovering from the celebrations?
