The Best Jumper in the World

Monday, 1 October 2012




Happy Monday everyone (says the mardy looking girl).  Would you like to see The Best Jumper in the World?  Of course you would.  Behold!  It is green.  It is super cute.  It was on sale.  That is practically the holy trinity of jumper characteristics as far as I'm concerned!

I had really bad lighting issues today *shakes fist at the stupid weather* so have had to faff around with this. The jumper is now the right shade of green but my hair, unsurprisingly, is not that red.

Anyway, it has HEDGEHOGS on.  I think that automatically gives the wearer extra cool points and a seat at the top table of the #wardrobezoo party, should we ever have one.  If you all buy one of these jumpers, we can officially be classed as a prickle of hedgehogs, which has got to be one of the best collective nouns ever.

Why am I eating my hair? Your guess is as good as mine.  Best of a bad bunch, photo wise...

I'm feeling fairly prickly today.  Mondays aren't usually that irritating but today has been quite high on the annoying scale.  If it could go wrong, it has done, and in quite spectacular style in some cases.  I'm a bit anxious about going swimming tonight in case I accidentally drown myself or something.
  However I am a firm believer that glancing down at yourself and being able to smile at your outfit makes you feel better, even if it's only slightly.  Hence the mad tights and lovely shoes I'm sporting today.  I am such a fan of a wedge heel - perfect for work and slightly better for me than a pair of flats.  Lovely as flats are, sometimes I just need a bit more height!  I say sometimes... I mean all the time.  I am very short after all.

  1. I was massively excited about the jumper but then I saw the tights as well. And they're both green! I don't like the word "squeeeee" but I feel this outfit may deserve it.

    You can borrow my hedgehogs socks, then you can wear a prickle of hedgehogs!

  6. Forget the jumper, you look seriously cute in the entire ensemble! The tights and shoes are wonderful, I think I need to get down to the Rag Market pretty sharpish! x

  7. Would have never guessed the tights were from the market. The jumper is totally after your own wardrobe zoo shaped heart, green is by far always the best colour. Hope tomorrow brings less trouble xxx

  16. I thought it was an awesome jumper at large spots, then realised it was hedgehogs!! Even better! I did totally think 'wow, I didn't know your hair was so red' in that pic! Love your backdrop for these pics too.

    1. I'm not sure - sorry! The perils of buying things from ebay. They're definitely from Office and I think they're part of a Vintage Collection that they did.
