Yesterday I headed to Primark with the soul intention of snapping up some of their new leather shorts. Unfortunately after about an hour of hunting I did not find said shorts, but I did find a rather cracking mens jumper. I don't wear jumpers very often it has to be said but when I do you can pretty much guarantee its going to be a mans one. They are just so comfy and the arms are always much longer - useful, when like me, your arms are nearly as long as some people are. I'm not sure whether its because I'm wearing this jumper or if I'd have behaved exactly the same today if I was wearing a frock but I have had an overwhelming urge to eat a lot of meat, have a few pints and dare I say it I even sat down for a bit to watch the football. Needless to say I didn't last very long watching it but a part of my brain did actually think at one point 'Ooh I might watch the footy'. I know, I was shocked too. So in celebration of all things manly (and to cover up my bloated roast belly) I have worn my jumper with my favourite man bag, an old leather satchel I got from a vintage shop in the Laines for a fiver. Now I just need to do some DIY, do some gardening and read the paper and I am done. (Blatant gender stereotyping there. Please accept my apologies my male readers..!)
Speaking of Primark...Here's a sneak peek at their SS11 collection. Its wonderfully nautical and ever so cute! There's also a real fifties vibe coming through. Well done Primark, you've really done good this time.
