Sorry I haven't posted in over a week, I've wanted to, but I've been feeling rather ill and unconfident for the last couple of days so I haven't been in the mood to take pictures. Thank-you for all of the comments on my previous post, I can't believe I recieved so many. Before I started my blog I never would've thought that so many people would like my lanky legs and my secondhand finds! I'm wearing my hobo jumper again, it really is my go-to jumper when I feel like crap and haven't a clue what to wear. I remember the first time I wore it over a year ago to college, I felt so ugly and awful in the morning, so I just thought I'd chuck on any old thing, and that ended up being the day when I recieved the most compliments. I suppose that's why I wear it so much now, despite it being an old grandad jumper from the fifty pence rail which gives me no shape whatsoever, it makes me feel quite confident. Do you have a go-to outfit? I'd love to know! And what do you think of the doubling of my chunky knit scarfs? I'll definately be wearing my scarfs like this more often, I'm hoping to buy a few more tomorrow on my usual trip to my local charity shops and Battersea car boot sale. Love, Jazzabelle. P.S. I announced the winner of my little giveaway on twitter a couple of days ago, but if you didn't see the lucky winner was Sian. Congratulations, lovely!

  3. Everytime I read your posts I'm always so jealous of your charity shop finds! Those scarves are lovely. I have a large square cut grey jumper/poncho that I treat in the same way as your hobo jumper. It goes with everything and is so warm and comfy!

  4. I love that jumper :). My goto outfit or item is my chunky knit cardi from Primark. I actually want to buy a better quality one as I wear it so much....same as my brogues :).I'm waiting patiently for the day one comes into my work so I can wear it as uniform....I've actually said that to other staff members...

  5. Layering two chunky scarfs is THE BEST.
    I did it once, in the middle of summer, with a chunky jumper. And chunky socks. Hahah

  9. This is a perfect go-to outfit. Loving the effect of the double scarves too. My go-to outfit usually involves a striped shirt and either a full skirt or jeans.

  10. Love the twisted scarves! Sometimes an outfit will surprise you and be better received than you think. I don't really have a go-to outfit, but if I'm stuck, I love to show off my legs with shorts and random tights!

  11. Hey Jazmine, lovely shots, lovely knits: it feels almost snowstormish! ; )

    Sorry to hear you had a tough week - was wondering why I hadn't heard from you. Did you get my emails re: Roz? I was thinking you especially would really get into the mummy scissors idea. Sometimes the best way to get our of a low mood, I find, is to do something, no matter how small, for someone else.

    Hope you're having a lovely weekend! xx

  16. Makes me so sad to hear you're feeling unconfident Jaz! I think alot of people would agree with me when I say you are absolutely stunning and so natural and unassuming! Also you write your blog with so much humility and i think that's why it's my favourite!

    Lots of love and snogs

  35. A perfect sweater, one that always looks ever enchanting! You know sometimes it's the unexpected purchases that turn out to be some of the best.
    Such beautiful photographs as ever. I haven't been posting as much as I'd like to either, so I can re-late to the feeling, I always feel guilty about it and I don't know why xx

  41. I have a big, silly crush on your sweater! It's funny how that happens - sometimes when I try the least I get the most compliments.
