shirt: new look *
rings: jwlry & market stall
nails: beauty UK smokey lilac *
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!
