Left In The Cold

Apparently it’s a bit nippy out there today. I personally wouldn’t know as I’m trapped in my bedroom surrounded by practically all of our belongings, while AG Flooring work their noisy magic.

This is the time of the year when I really start to dread working on the till at the warehouse parties I do PR for. An average of two thousand people pass me by and head into the warmth of the tunnels and I’m left shivering it out until 4am with the team. I’m well-known for taking my little heater and thermos of tea along with me to work, but even those don’t really cut it by about 2am. It’s at about that time that I can no longer feel my fingers and toes and I start to become a little less cheerful. Annoyingly, that is also the time that the clubbers become a little more vocal and things get a little more taxing.

When I leave the club I instantly hit defrost in the car, but I don’t actually thaw out until I make it to my bed with yet more tea. It’s true, the older you get the more you feel the cold and this old bird doesn’t like it one bit!

This season a few jumpers have caught my eye in the shops, so I’m adding them to my ever-growing A/W wish list. Below are a few of my favourites. If I layer up enough and invest in a more powerful heater I might, just might, make it through the season.

I love all three of these jumpers by The Rock Boutique and actually just bought the grey one from Asos the other week.
It’s a fab fit and feels really soft. It will no doubt get worn to death…
The trouble now is that I really want them all! £45

If you’re a cat person (like me) then this is the jumper to get.
There are some pretty awful animal prints out there at the moment, but this one isn’t too offensive.
Asos Dolly cat Jumper – £40

Now this jumper doesn’t look too hot on the Topshop website, but in the store I really loved it.
This is NOT the jumper for me though –  It looked great on the hanger but awful on.
Maybe one of you will have more luck with it!
Topshop Spot Jaquard Jumper  – £40

This cute little jumper hasn’t gone too over the top with it’s spots.
I’m not sure the peter pan collar will work for me, but I’ll certainly give it a go.
Pins and Needles Spot Collar Top – Urban Outfitters – £40

Not really a jumper, but this looks pretty warm and cosy to me.
I bet it will come down to my knees though!
Asos Blanket Wrap Cardigan – £45

Have you seen any great jumpers for A/W? If so, do share!

    And here I thought — from my Beverly Hills-adjacent location– that PR work was glamorous!

    I don’t know about jumpers, or your kind of cold for that matter, but I cannot live without my DKNY cashmere cardigan wrap. I love it so much that, having unfortunately put a big cigar burn in my original one, tracked it down on ebay and bought a replacement.

      A nice bit of cashmere there… It looks like it might come down to my ankles though! Thank goodness for ebay :)

    I definitely don’t miss my clipboard days spent shivering outside the party. Some great jumpers there, if I see any other good ones I’ll let you know.

      Hiya :)
      What is the rock boutique sizing like? I’m trying to buy one of their tank tops for a friend and am wondering if the size 10 will be big enough.

    I have a few colours of the jumper in the same size and one is a bit bigger than the other. I would say they are just a bit big on the sizing, but have never tired the tank tops.
