So I got to Oxford St yesterday with my ma, had a really nice day. I was on the lookout for a black jumper with a black faux fur panel on the front with plain sleeves, I didn't find it. I don't even know if such a thing exists, I thought I saw it in a magazine but now I think I just made it up. Does anyone know where I can find the jumper of my dreams? (Actually don't tell me if you do, I cannot afford anything now.)

I did get this Monki jumper though, at £20 the quality isn't great and it's not at all warm but I think it looks cute! I didn't really buy a lot but I seem to have spent a lot of money, hate when that happens haha! If I could I would've bought everything in COS and also, I think that someone should start a style blog feat the people who shop there because they were all so well dressed it was unreal. All androgynous and Scandi and New Balance and effortless and blonde...jellyjellyjelly, why I no be cool too? I'm not cool because I went to Topshop especially to find these socks with guinea piggies on but they had every animal but. They had pigeons, dinosaurs and badgers (yuckyuckyuck) but no guineas. I won't lie, I am feeling terribly sad about this (I know, I'm a lucky person if the one thing I have to be saddest about is the lack of guinea pig socks in my life.) They're still available online here but if I order them I feel like that'd be one expensive pair of socks and I'm on a bit of spending ban now til next pay day. Booooo hooooo.

Tomorrow I start IVs, I'm hoping to be able to do them at work on my break but we shall see! Don't fancy having two weeks off at all.

  1. Good luck with doing the IVs at work, damn CF will not get in the way!

    I hope you find the guinea pig socks soon. I used to have two guinea pigs called Harry and Ron. Cool.

  3. We really need a Monki up here, totally missing out on all the cute knits. Omg, I love those socks! Paws crossed you find some. Cute socks make me really happy for some strange reason, my friends/family struggle with it but hey ho. It's ma thing! :)

  4. Josie I think I saw a jumper like this in & Other Stories. Except now I can't remember whether the fur bit was on the body or on the sleeves but it's black faux fur and the rest of the jumper is navy knit. The one thing I'm certain of was that it was so nice, I stood there stroking it for a good 5 minutes. And I'm sorry to hear you couldn't find the guinea pig socks in store, I found mine in the Oxford circus Topshop but it was a few weeks ago. Hope they'll pop up again soon!

  7. Topshop socks are the best! I'm surprised the quality of the Monki jumper isn't great, my experiences with them have all been really positive! Good luck for the IVs xx

  10. If I wanted to be a bad influence I'd say that guinea socks would be worth ordering if they're all cosy when you have your IVs.
    But as I'm a good person I'm just going to say you look so cayooote here and I hope the IVs go well!

  15. Your cream jumper is great Josie, did you try Asos for the black one, or Zara? I had no idea they are putting guinea pigs on clothes now, sounds super adorable! Thanks for your kind visit and sorry for the late reply - internet issues. Have a great day doll!
