One Mint Julep

If I'm totally honest, I have never been a sweater kind of girl. I've always avoided things with high necks because they made me feel a little claustrophobic! Until now! 

Sweater - Simply Be, Skirt - Charity Ship, Shoes - Vivienne Westwood, Brooch - Charity Shop.

This cropped sweater from Simply Be is heavenly! Not only is it the most glorious, stretchy material ever but it is also super soft and luxurious! As I said, previously I have avoided things with high necks as I tend to find them a little restricting but the neckline on this is perfect. It sits high but doesn't feel like it's strangling me haha. The cute woven-esque knit pattern is adorable and makes me feel like a cute Grandma from the 1950's. I also love the colour, pastels seem to have made a big comeback this season and this gorgeous soft mint is definitely one of my favourite pastel shades. I also love the length of the sleeves, they're just below capped and just above the elbow - so cover any arm areas you might be concerned about   but are also short enough for this to be wearable in slightly warmer weather too.

I've had this brooch for such a long time but always struggled with what to wear it on because it's quite an unusual shape. As soon as i tried on this sweater, I knew it would be perfect for it. It sticks with the cute Grandma theme that I am definitely feeling with his outfit but gives the sweater a little pop of something instead of wearing more traditional jewellery items. 

I added a lick of my absolute favourite lipstick of the moment, Bourjois Rouge Edition in Rouge Jet Set! I love love love a bold lip! Although I've said it time and time again, I am primarily a matte lipstick girl, this Bourjois number has the perfect dash of shine to it that means it's super hydrating without being too glossy for me! 

Lots Of Love,
