Something tells me this wouldn't pass for hand luggage on a flight…..its huge!

Aside from burgundy/maroon the khaki shade is a colour injection into my wardrobe that typically consists of grey, navy, white and black. But this French Connection jumper is one of my favorites  It’s the perfect length, not being too long that I have to double tuck above my skirts or too short I have to keep tugging it down every time  I reach for something on the top shelf (surprisingly not magazines).  

The jumper material itself although appears thick enough to wear alone is a waffle like knit and so needs a little layering on colder days. I wore it with an oldie, a leopard print chiffon style top that I thought added a little texture and pattern peeking out of the bottom.

For some reason whenever I wear this bowler style hat I always want to sing some chimney sweeping cockney song. Even though bowler hats and urchin caps don’t look that much alike but I still find it rather amusing.  “chim chimney, chim chimney, chim chim cher-ee!”

I’m a big fan of the cross style jewellery, although I've always found it a little strange that a religious symbol has created such a statement among fashion and has become pretty popular. But I picked this necklace up from Republic, the antique silver and brushed gold are flattering for paler skin tones and it’s a great statement piece too add an edge to an outfit.

    I'm a huge fan of cross jewellery too - love the chunky style of your necklace and the mix of silver/gold makes it really different.

  12. Really love this outfit, from the stacked rings, to the jumper and necklace. I actually have a necklace so similar to this from ASOS, but I'm actually taking a liking to this one a bit more just due to the different colours. :)

  14. This outfit is just gorgeous! I love that it's different to other looks I have seen. The slightly peeking-through leopard print is the perfect amount - too much looks trashy! This whole look pulls together well and suits you!
