Green Chairs & Knitwear


I felt like our second day in Paris encompassed everything I love about the city. Leisurely breakfasts fuelled by bread, chatter and tea, slow strolls across the city- hopping from arrondissements in search of hidden corners and small boutiques- as well as (and most importantly) brilliant company too. I won’t be able to articulate things half as beautifully as Lizzy– but a certain Ms. Hadfield summed up the company in a perfect blog post that I highly recommend you all check out here.

It’s amazing what good company can do for your confidence too. Although when I’m feeling a little delicate (cough, hormonal) I can be partial to knocking myself and oozing niggles of comparison- it’s in company like this that those feelings are melted away- and comfortably replaced by laughter and support- because if anyone’s gonna help a girl perfect her posing it’s this bunch.

On top of that, I gotta say that this little get up is one of my favourite Autumnal outfits I’ve put together this year. Definitely one of my less ~considered~ get ups, it’s true that sometimes the best outfits are the ones we barely even think about- and I can comfortably say that a good pair of black jeans and a bright knit will be my go-to even on my most clueless of days. Perhaps it’s the fact I feel a little like Alex Turner circa ‘Cornerstone’ in it (a niche, but worthwhile reference IMO) but there’s something about wearing a pop of colour on a grey day that can lift even the simplest of get ups too.








And let’s talk about Jigsaw too. Having been initially encouraged to check them out my my doting nan (she’s exceptionally cool, I promise)- I’m continually impressed by the quality, design and pieces in every collection- and arguably, after seeing the girls kindly model it over our trip in Paris, think their latest could be one of their strongest yet. With paintbox bright coats in rich caramels, minty teals and fuchsia pinks- as well as beautifully crafted cashmere and tailoring- it’s no wonder I’ve not taken these jeans off since our trip last week.

On top of that, their new campaign; ♥ Immigration- hits on the head why they’re such an integral player on the British high street. I’ll let you read their full (and perfectly put) manifesto here– but seeing a key brand of the British high street talk about it’s multifaceted, exciting and diverse heritage is really what we need to be celebrating. Not only when it comes to style and talent- but simply individuals; and something that shows that they’re far more than just ruddy good knitwear and jeans too…

    Love your outfit, the jumper is such a beautiful colour!
    I had no idea Jigsaw had such a great ethos, it’s so cool to get behind brands like that, I’ll certainly be shopping there a lot more!

    Love that Alex Turner is one of your style inspirations – he’s a god – and Cornerstone is one of my Desert Island Disc choices, undoubtedly.

    I love this outfit! Also Jigsaw’s campaign is awesome! I’ve walked past all the posters at Oxford Circus station a couple times and it’s great to see.
