I dont know much about cashmere to be honest. Its not something within my price range, or probably something I would choose to buy myself as I tend to just do cheap and cheerful. Voucher Codes asked me to be part of a challenge about Cashmere. They sent me this from Uniqlo, coming in at £79.90 (they do have a discount code page on their website!) I really wasn't sure what to expect. I opted for black as it was the safest choice!

I think the Uniqlo Cashmere jumper feels really soft and comfy, most importantly I didnt find it scratchy or irritating which is my main gripe with any jumper thats woolen. But after my mother trialled it (she declined to be part of this outfit post, still working on trying to make her become a blogger!) she adores it and says it feels perfect. My jumpers a S, and I expected it to be bigger because the photo made it look a little big, I probably would have preferred something more baggy. Even a L or XL would have been better.

I didnt really know how to style it either as its more fitted than I normally would choose! Though I'd go for my go-to pink and black style outfits! Also sporting my new favourite nail polish, Beauty UK smokey lilac. Its just such a wonderful purple thats not a bright lilac but kinda browny too. Love it! Posted about my lipstick too on my other blog!

  11. I've never really been bothered about cashmere either, I think it's mostly for rich middle aged ladies, but the jumper does look nice on you, and I have the same new look blouse, not even worn it yet though! xx

  19. Your hair is looking lovely here and I'm loving the purple nails. Don't think I could quite manage the price tag of a cashmere jumper but maybe one day when I've got a decent amount of money in my bank account, I'll treat myself and take the splurge!

  21. The outfit is awesome, black is always the safest. I love the way cashmere feels in my hands, but on my skin is very itchy. xx

  22. Really like the way you've styled this jumper with the pink. I love snuggly jumpers like that but rarely wear them when they're fitted, so I know what you mean about going for a bigger size! It looks lovely on you though!

  29. That polish color is lovely! And likewise, cashmere is not in my price range, but I feel like theres more and more cloth material getting softer and softer which is exciting!
