Check Mate

 Vintage shirt, Ark jumper, Topshop jeans, Converse

I've been wanting to wear this little ensemble for a while now and, seeing as the sun is not playing nice, I decided that I would showcase my new jumper underneath a sky of clouds today. It's lovely and cosy and perfect for keeping off the summer chill.

Usually my style is fairly girly and feminine, but every once in a while it's nice to experiment with a different look. I love the geeky androgyny to this outfit and the contrasting textures to the jumper and shirt. It's also unusual for me to wear dark under light but, with the light blue of the check peeking through, it uplifts the ensemble just enough to work. Soft layers are perfect for this time of year and jumpers in lighter hues will instantly give your wardrobe more of a summer vibe. 
Until next time catch me on Twitter and Pinterest.
