    I love the sweater! It is popular for good reason; I also think it won’t date. It will look cool even a few years from now when fashion has moved on.

    Lovely jumper, seen a similar style in H and M with lace-up detail either side, may have to bag that one next time I go shopping! Liking your whole look. Thanks for hosting link up. Jacqui
