Fairisle Jumper

quite quaint asos peter pan collar dres
quite quaint zara elbow patch jumper
Jumper: Zara  |  Dress: Asos  |  Socks: Topshop  |  Shoes: Office

I've been told I look like a little evacuee in this outfit, I'm not sure if that's true but I definitely feel like a little girl when I'm wearing it. Just like everyone else and their dog, I've been in love with peter pan collars this season and this dress is perfect. I don't often wear all black so I've mostly been pairing this dress with different jumpers and flopping that lovely collar over the top. I almost returned this jumper when I bought it back at the beginning of autumn because I don't usually go for brown, but I'm so glad I kept it, it's been one of my favourite pieces to wear this autumn/winter. The pattern is pretty enough alone, but those elbow patches make it even better. I had to add the patterned socks, simply because I've been finding it impossible not to add a pair of socks to every outfit recently!

  7. What a lovely little outfit, if not an evacuee then defintiely something I can imagine Cassandra wearing in I Capture the Castle. Also a tiny bit jealous as I never did manage to get this jumper when I saw it in Zara all those months ago. Oh the regret... :) x

  13. gorgeous, I think it's probably the elbow patches and brown pattern that makes it look evacuee but a definite trendy evacuee, love it! the peter pan collar is such a cute detail too. all you need is a bis suitcase and your ready for the train ride =)

  24. Definitely does have a "little evacuee" flavour...but just adds to the chic and adorable!!! Elbow patches are one of my very favourite fashion details.
