My burgundy heritage land of dreams

I was feeling very layer-y this morning.  I fancied making a jump at the heritage trend once again with my tweed Primark trousers and keeping it simple with a white shirt.  But, knowing me, I wasn't happy with that.  I felt too boring and plain so I gave the look more of a luxe feel with the stole.  Now, incase you haven't seen all the bloggers going on about stoles and their luxe-ness I'll just simply re-iterate.  A faux fur stole is an essential piece (for me anyway) for A/W simply because its makes any outfit immediately more glamorous and elegant.  I don't think it matters what colour your stole either - it could be brown, dark brown, in this case - black, or a mix of them all.  A faux fur stole can always win over an outfit and give a more elegant feel.  When I went out I threw on my tan boyfriend coat from New Look last year just to finish off with that heritage-y British vibe.

I later found this stunning jumper in New Look for £19.99; it was everything I had wanted in a jumper.  Oversized, burgundy, comfortable, on trend.  It had to be mine.  Now it is. Lalalalala. 
Believe it or not, this oversized jumper is a six 6.  For a girl size 8-10 to have an oversized jumper that is size 6 you may be suprised, I am too.  This leads to wonder; was it labelled correctly or is it actually a perfect jumper?  I can only image (had my store had an 8) that my own size would have been the epitome of perfection - jumper wise.  New Look, you've done good.

Naturally, I couldn't wait to put the jumper on over the outfit I was wearing and blog it.  So here it is.  Apologies for the non-descriptly rubbish photos, my camera wasn't in the mood apparently.  I'll be sure to have better photos soon!  Expect a post on my trip to Paris, new dresses & my LFW SS13 favourite soon.

Lots of love x
