Autumn Faves: Chunky Jumpers

Since Autumn seems to have comfortably settled in, I’ve decided to embrace everything about this cozy season.  What do I love about Autumn, let me count the ways:

  • I love winter-warmer recipes, especially homemade soup like my favourite squash soup.
  • I love open and lit fires.
  • I love taking long Autumn walks.
  • I love the changing of the colours of the leaves from green, brown to golden.
  • And lastly, I love wearing chunky jumpers, who doesn’t?

I’ve never been a fashionable person. I’ve always gone for comfort and not style, especially now that I’m a mother.  Who has the energy to think of outfits for the school run?  Do women even do that, I wonder?  If you do, well done to you!  As for me, I usually grab whatever I can get my hands on.  I’m lucky if I remember to even brush my hair.  That’s one of the reasons why I have my hair short now – less hassle.

I do however love Autumn and Winter fashion, though I do use the word “fashion” loosely, as I mentioned, I don’t really care much about it but I love, love, love chunky jumpers.  Who cares if they make you look a bit heavier, as long as they keep you cosy and warm?  Here are four of my faves:

1. Face Face   2. Dorothy Perkins 3. H&M  4. Zara

Come to think of it, I don’t just love chunky jumpers, I guess you could say I love Autumn and Winter clothes.  I know what you’re thinking, “I thought you didn’t care much about fashion?” I guess I do, but only in the cold seasons 🙂 From lovely knits, to fluffy hats with pompoms and thick scarves, and boots!  To quote L.M. Montgomery (author of the classic – Anne of Green Gables)  “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”  And I’m adding …chunky jumpers!

What about you?

Do you love chunky knits too?

    • Thanks. And mine too! I’m actually feeling the cold as I sit and type this. Love, love chunky knits 🙂

  1. I do love Autumn but it will be a while yet before I need a jumper as I am generally pretty hot (maybe this is the menopause setting in). Although you cannot beat a good chunky knit when winter arrives I agree there. I also love new fluffy pjs.

    • I envy you. I wish I was always hot. These days I’m always cold! I do love fluffy pjs too. x

  2. I LOVE chunky knits! So cosy and warm I could live in them, the only thing I have to be careful of is the material because I find some to be ichy. Winter is my favourite time of year just because I love the cuddly clothing

    • You’re right about the material. When it’s really cold I usually wear an undershirt 🙂

    • Same here. I normally go for boring colours like greys, browns and blues. It’s nice to have one that’s a bit bright! 🙂
