Inspiration: Chunky Knits



One of the things I always look forward to when winter arrives (in terms of fashion) is the chance to pull out my many chunky knitted jumpers. There's nothing better than pulling on a huge woollen jumper before venturing out into a frosty morning. Throughout these cold months, I tend to rotate my favourites, with a pair of skinnies and boots for the most comfortable everyday wear. Many of mine have been passed down from my Mum, and even my Nanna - true family heirlooms ! Above are a few of my favourite ways to wear them.

I love that first pic the most. I'm the opposite - I always dread the cold weather due to my lack of cosy knitted jerseys x

I can't wait to bust out all my chunky knits too! I think that's one of the best parts of fall. Layers and chunky knits!

Hope you'll stop by again soon!
