&otherstories knitwear and blouse 1

Today’s post is a ‘what I bought recently’ kind of post and the problem I have with andotherstories – I just can’t stop shopping there! It’s great for workwear and casualwear and I’m SUCH a fan of Scandi brands which means I am always browsing it’s sister stores, COS and Weekday. I’m patiently waiting for the day when Birmingham has its own shop eventually but for now my purchases are limited to visits when I’m in London or a bit of late night online shopping, which by the way is never a good idea! As a result, a recent browse resulted in this marshmallow pink jumper and coral blouse which are a dreamy, spring colour combination.

I love the Ganni vibes that I get from this jumper, it’s so much more of a chunkier knit in real life, so it’s not exactly the most flattering (which unfortunately my mum enthusiastically agreed with when I mentioned it – thanks mum) but I love it all the same because it’s so cosy! The colour works really well with this coral blouse which is just my kind of thing. I have an abundance of blouses and this is my favourite kind of shape. It’s a long line style which is great with skinny jeans but also tucked into a skirt, or layered under a jumper. Plus the lovely scalloped details on the collar and elasticised sleeves are perfect details that make it a little more special. I’ll definitely be wearing it to work this week…
