Coral Jumper

Clothes TopShop
You’ll probably notice that when I blog, I often say that I bought something ages ago or even years ago! I am not one of those bloggers who are on the ball with the latest trends and the newest collection that the high street has to offer – I haven’t got the money to keep up! I always feel bad when someone asks me where I bought something, knowing that they want to go to the shops to check it or maybe even buy it, and I will end up telling them eg. “River Island…… in 2008”. Well, here’s another outfit that’s not available to buy anymore (I am so last season). I bought all of this outfit with a TopShop gift card. I’m wearing a white crochet Peter Pan collar top underneath the chunky knit 3/4 length jumper (I’m still feeling festive?!) and a pair of polka dot burgandy shorts. My nail polish here is Pink Grapefruit by 17 from Boots. Both the nail polish and the coral red jumper was difficult to photograph, they’re so bright!

    lovely outfit!^^

  4. 8th January 2012 / 3:32 pm

    Looking fabulous as always!
    Love the Temp:Sec tshirt, shame I have zero spare cash at the moment.
    It's strange, I was going to blog about letter writing later on today, as this week is (apparently) Universal Letter Writing Week!

    That t-shirt is gorgeous! I'm the same with alot of my clothes, I hold onto so many things, I worked in Fashion Retail so built up a ridiculous amount of clothing due to the 60% employee discount! They always seem to still look nice even years later!

  6. 8th January 2012 / 3:32 pm

    I still haven't bought it either and need to ha! Gorgeous outfit, Oh I am the same with my outfits tbh, rarely buy anything new from the high street, meh. You look amazing anyway. I love your work, can't wait to see more of it xx

  7. 8th January 2012 / 3:35 pm

    Gorgeous jumper – the colour is so pretty and girly 🙂

    Love the Temp Sec t-shirt too such amazing detail! I hope you achieve your new year's resolution…you've got a great talent there! xx

    Love the spotty tights, so cute! x

  9. 8th January 2012 / 3:47 pm

    I really love this outfit… in fact I think I'd white like to recreate it, I have so many shorts but do struggle to find a white shirt/top with such a lovely collar to go under my jumpers. I'll keep looking! 😉

    I do hope you blog any new year drawings or art work you produce, I'd love to see them!

    Beautiful outfit. For me, sweater with a collar looks wonderful.

  11. 8th January 2012 / 3:52 pm

    The colour of that jumper is so stunning and the way you've styled the outfit is adorable!


  12. 8th January 2012 / 4:03 pm

    That's a very sweet outfit. I am still hanging onto Christmas so much that I have my Christmas tree up still! xx

  13. 8th January 2012 / 4:04 pm

    Your jumper is so gorgeous! Love the colour of it! LOVE the Temporary:Secretary top too 🙂 xx

  14. 8th January 2012 / 4:07 pm

    Love the colour of that jumper! I really need to get back into letter writing too. I was tweeting the other day about how I missed writing with a fountain pen, and it seems I'm not alone!

  15. 8th January 2012 / 4:09 pm

    Such a lovely outfit! (I have massive knitwear envy) I'm still very much coveting the Temp Sec Hero & Cape tee – it's perfect! Good luck with the drawing xx

    I adore that jumper on you, it looks beautiful! xx

  17. 8th January 2012 / 4:15 pm

    That's how I am too – so out of season lol. I love the outfit though! I'm glad you're trying to get back into drawing! 🙂

  18. 8th January 2012 / 4:25 pm

    I love jumpers with collars showing. Need to get some jumpers. I love your Hero and Cape t-shirt it is so cute 🙂 Can't wait to see more x x

  19. 8th January 2012 / 4:32 pm

    Such a lovely outfit as ever Sarah, I love the colour of your jumper (: I'm excited to see more of your illustration work, I wish I had an extra talent like that haha!

  26. 8th January 2012 / 5:16 pm

    love wearing jumpers with cute collars peeking out – peter pan's are the best 😉

  27. 8th January 2012 / 5:22 pm

    I don't think it really matters that something isn't bang on trend, if you wear it well and feel comfortable in it then it's fine really!

  28. 8th January 2012 / 5:22 pm

    I love the coral and burgundy together! I often get things from car boot sales and charity shops, which is just as annoying for other people! I love the T:S Hero & Cape tee, too 🙂

  29. 8th January 2012 / 5:31 pm

    Them shorts are so cute! I love all of your outfits!


  30. 8th January 2012 / 5:45 pm

    Such a great outfit! Shade dressing- A+

  31. 8th January 2012 / 5:52 pm

    The place where you live seems to have only the best weather, so jealous! Was trying to make my outfit pictures yesterday and it looks like from a horror movie, how dark and awful the weather was. Oh well. You look amazing, anyways!:) xx

  32. 8th January 2012 / 6:06 pm

    Love this outfit 🙂 I must get round to buying a Temp:Sec shirt too!

  33. 8th January 2012 / 6:13 pm

    Oh I'm so the same when it comes to clothes sometimes. Most things are harboured lol, I love the jumper the colour is gorgeous. Plus the Temporary:Secretary tshirt is amaze xoxo

  34. 8th January 2012 / 6:42 pm

    Lovely Outfit, your jumper's a gorgeous colour. I love your T shirt too it's a great design.

    Such a great jumper – coral is one of my favourite colours! It looks great on you! xx

  41. 8th January 2012 / 7:56 pm

    I have a whole list of things to blog about & I have no idea where to start- maybe when I met Christina Ricci in New York would be a good place!!

    I too want to write more letters- speaking of which I am attempting the post office tomorrow with yours x

  42. 8th January 2012 / 8:03 pm

    Coral is such a perfect shade on you x

  43. 8th January 2012 / 8:05 pm

    The colours here are wonderful, and I adore the collar peeking out. I am so excited to see your illustrations! xx

  44. 8th January 2012 / 8:09 pm

    Sarah, are these topshop shorts? If they are, they're the ones i've been after. I love them!
    Also, WHY YOU NOT GOT THIS TEE YET? You designed it! HURRY and get it.xx

  45. 8th January 2012 / 8:27 pm

    Suuuch a cute outfit!

    Marie x

  46. 8th January 2012 / 8:53 pm

    the tee is gorgeous! & I keep buying things and then blogging about them and when I go to find the link they're not on the site any more- nightmare. But it doesn't matter that you can't buy the exact items because you can still give people inspiration 🙂 looking lovely as per x

  47. 8th January 2012 / 9:08 pm

    Very excited to see the results of your endeavors in drawing/illustration. I love to see people's artwork!

  48. 8th January 2012 / 9:20 pm

    Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one who (whilst aware and not completely desinterested) cannot keep up with all the newest trends and certainly doesn't have to funds to follow them all. Then again, I don't think I'd actually want to…

    So, that "so last season" outfit looks great – love the colour of the jumper.

    I know what you mean about the drawing, the busier I am the less I find time to draw/paint. The less I practice, the more difficult it becomes – it's a nightmare…

    Good luck with your resolutions, they're good ones 🙂 xo

  49. 8th January 2012 / 9:34 pm

    Amazing outfit! I love these colours together :)I'm the same as you with the whole 'err I bought it like two years ago!' I just joined fashion traffic but can't really use it because nothing I wear is very current 😛


  50. 8th January 2012 / 10:03 pm

    That jumper is a lovely colour + love that tee, might have to get one once my loan has come in xx

  51. 8th January 2012 / 10:09 pm

    I love these shots, such a lovely colour, and I have a bit of a thing for polka dots at the moment. I had a giftcard for Topshop too so bought a few bits from their sale. It's so hard trying to stay up to date with fashion trends like that, but I think by mixing new with old you get a great sense of style, much more so than wearing something new every week. It adds a personal touch xx

    sweet monday

  52. 8th January 2012 / 10:10 pm

    Absolutely love this outfit, the colours are wonderful. that paper dress is beautiful x

  53. 8th January 2012 / 11:53 pm

    Coral is such a gorgeous color. I think it is one of the most flattering colors, too. It seems to look good on everyone! I lovelovelovelove everything about these pictures.

    the colour of your jumper is amazing, i love the matching nails too! i have the bottle green version on this jumper and i just adore it. it's such good quaility and the 3/4 sleeves are perfect. xx

  55. 9th January 2012 / 1:31 am

    You can write me a letter if you want! We can be penpals, HURRAY! Haha. I love your outfit, don't worry I still wear clothes from 2009 as well (probs earlier than that haha). Ohh also! That shirt is beautiful! I don't know why I haven't seen it before but I must have it now. I would wear it everyday and with everything! Preettyyyy. Hope you're having a wonderful day 🙂

  56. 9th January 2012 / 1:38 am

    So pretty! The color of your jumper is just amazing. I'm just like you, there is no way I have enough money to keep up with current trends! I find what I like, and it just builds up over time. I don't throw out clothes unless they're destroyed.

Good luck with your resolutions – if I had any scrap of talent I would love to draw and illustrate too, but my three year old nephew crayons better than I do!!

    Nice look!

  70. 10th January 2012 / 8:51 pm

    Honestly, I'm the same way… I keep my clothes for SO long. I'm 25 now, and I still have a few pieces from middle school. Weird, I know!

    I love the color of this jumper… it looks really cute on you! I love the polka dots, too <3

    Love & Cake,

  71. 10th January 2012 / 10:02 pm

    Definitely agree about being behind the times, although I just like to call it "vintage"!
    That jumper is such a gorgeous colour though, seriously divine. Perfect way to brighten up a dull winter's day.

    Rosie xx

  72. 10th January 2012 / 10:36 pm

    love the jumper and the blouse, you're so pretty! xx

  73. 11th January 2012 / 1:33 am

    I love the outfit. Especially because the peter pan collar! I also loving the mustache ring. 🙂
    I like that you wanna encourage people to write letters again. I definitely agree and have been saying the same thing lately! There's something much more personal and touching about a handwritten letter versus an email. I miss those days.

    WOw, i love this coral knit sweater on you, very festive indeed!!!! The color suits you really well tho, and that peter pan color is so cute! I like that mustache ring of yours too,so unique and special (your piece of art work, i gather?hehe).

    I think it's okay if we're not always on trend as long as we like and feel comfortable in what we wear:) Then again, i think your style is lovely and cute! I did find it funny tho when you said you are soo last season, haha just puts a smile on my face with those quicky/funny remarks you make out of the blue.But i still love seeing your outfits even if their from 2009, plus don't effect me as much since i cant buy stuff from my old fave london's topshop, dorothy perkins,warehouse anyway….gosh how i miss them all!!!!!!

    By the way, i hope you get back into your writing,illustrating, and drawing in no time;)you got talent girl!

    Gosh Sarah, I have to say, i had no idea that you were that pretty girl on the top of your blog header, nor that you made that dress!!!! Impressive!!!!! I thought you got the image from those websites like or something, hahaha

    Anyhow, wishing you a fab week!!! Stay warm:D
