Cosy Autumn Knitwear

Hey everyone,

Wow, the temperature has really dropped this week hasn't it?

Although I'm not the biggest fan of Autumn and Winter - the dark mornings and short days set off my S.A.D which has already been putting me on the blink this week. Bah!

BUT, what I am looking forward to enjoying is shopping for some gorgeous jumpers.

And a few days ago, I had my first 'Jumper Day' of the year - where it's still a bit too warm to my winter coat, but too nippy to go out without a jacket:

JUMPER: H! by Henry Holland, £38.
SHORTS: Dorothy Perkins, £Can't remember.
BAG: River Island, £40ish.
TIGHTS: Dorothy Perkins, £4.
SHOES: Ebay, £5.
POINT OF FASHION: First 'Jumper Day' of the year!

I absolutely adore the Henry Holland jumper - the fox is so cute, and the white tip of the tail even has extra fuzzy-wuzzy bits.

Also, some more lovely knitwear that I've put on my wishlist:

RABBIT JUMPER: Next, £25. (Georgina from Cupcake's Clothes looks adorable in this!)
POLKA DOT JUMPER: Topshop, £35.
FLORAL CARDIGAN: Red Herring, £20.
LACE PRINT CARDIGAN: New Look, £22.
MILITARY JUMPER: New Look, £20.
BOWS CARDIGAN: River Island, £36.99.
BUDGIE JUMPER: Topshop, £28.

I've just realised I've done almost a full circle with this blog - my very first post was all about upcoming Autumn collections! How time has flown...

I do have a fun idea for my first blogoversary on September 30th.
Stay tuned for more information, folks!

I've also added a bunch of pictures to the Facebook page from my life away from the blogosphere, so you can see what sort of stuff I get up to that doesn't make it onto this blog.

If you could consider becoming a fan, you can get updates of new blog posts plus some more cool stuff straight to your news feed.

Muchos love,
MessyCarla.

  1. I'm sort of sad summer is over but at the same time, a new season is a very good excuse to go shopping for new stuff!

    I recently bought the perfect red knit dress that I cannot wait to wear once it gets a bit colder (that said, it isn't really warm here either!).

    Ooh and the budgie jumper!

  6. I've been looking at the fox jumper from the H! range for a few weeks, but I think I might get the giraffe jumper from the collection instead. Both are too cute though!

    My whole Autumn is probably going to be about comfy jumpers. I'm going to be stuck in cold cold rehearsal rooms and churches for a lot of it - cost cardigans are going to be my staple!

  20. That budgie jumper is da bomb, I'm distraught I can't buy it here. Oh well, will have to content myself with my H&M horse-head sweater dress when the weather turns!
