OOTD | Statement Cross Necklace & Mustard Topshop Jumper

Hey!  So this is my new favourite jumper.  Is it mustard colour?  I reckon it’s probably not to everyone else but to me that is what I keep thinking of when I look at it!  I feel that we were meant to be together, since I only came to own it as I had to return some trousers that didn’t fit (Topshop sizing clearly doesn’t account for the fact that I eat more and more as the Christmas season approaches).  I was ready to get a simple refund but then this beaut caught my eye and the rest is history.  It is actually a tad greener than the photo shows, but in general it looks pretty much as bright and loud as you can see there!  There are only certain bright colours I like, and I can’t say that they are always a certain type because sometimes I will see something different and I just have to have it.  A bright jumper like this is ideal to put on to add (a lot of) colour to a black, wintery outfit.  Along with the jumper just had to come this statement necklace, which was a bargain at £5 in the jewellery sale.  I really love big necklaces, and I think that the red on the crosses on this one clash perfectly with the jumper and overall it completes the look nicely.  The trousers are my trusty patterned ones that I found online at George@Asda of all places, I love them and still look at them thinking that they could easily have come from River Island or somewhere. 
I really really hate how my hair looks here, the frizz is unreal considering my hair isn’t even curly or anything.  Hopefully though I am on the way to sorting it out and leading it down the path to smoothness, starting with the addition of a paddle brush.  I had heard a lot of bloggers raving recently about the Michael Mercier brush, which is a rounded paddle kind, but at £12.99 I just thought of 7348932091432 other things that I would rather spend that amount of money on, so I opted for a similar kind from Tres Semme for £6.99.  I have to say that it is hands down the best thing that has happened to my hair since..ever!  I cannot believe the difference that one different kind of brush has immediately made to my hair, especially after spending far too much money lately on various ‘anti-frizz’  products that just don’t live up to their claims.  But anyway, I think that’s a post for another day..!
What do you think of my loud jumper?! Have you made any winter purchases recently? xx

  5. The jumper looks mustard to me! I love that colour so much but it just looks poop on me, you however look fab! That brush sounds amazing, I've been using the same one since I was 11 and it used to belong to my mum before me so I reckon it's definitely time I stopped being a tramp and bought a new one! xxx
