I’ve long admired how wonderful Une Femme d’Un Certain Âge looks in her asymmetric jumpers. It’s a great way to update my classic look and last week Sue of Sue So So alerted us to this one by Mango. Here’s how she wore hers in oatmeal in size M. Mine is size S. I only had a sleeveless M&S thermal vest underneath and was quite warm and snug. The jumper is longer on me so we have a little excess around my hipline due to the friction of wearing a wool skirt, with jeans it hangs flatter.The grey is turning more to white – do you think it’s the chlorine 🙂 My vintage camel skirt comes out every winter here. I took it up last year and this season wore it with some riding boots that are made of fleece lined PVC = warm and practical! They are by Däv and were at a great price from the Outnet in the Summer (I usually buy out of season). It’s really hard for me to find the right riding boot shape because of my short legs and calves a weightlifter would be proud of 🙂 So I chose the best practical answer. With peacoat and long scarf, check. I felt very comfortable in all the layers without any excessive bulk. I definitely needed something like this! Sorry for a lot more photos than usual – I don’t normally include more than 3, but wanted to be thorough. I had a warm jumper like this which I’ve given to my Tween along with a few others of mine so it was a chance to fill the vacancy with something more current, not edgy because it’s really not my aim 🙂 My bag is vintage Céline that I treated, here’s the original post, so she’s shower proof.Side view, check. The material is ever so slightly scratchy and not the best quality but hey, it’s Mango!Back view, check. You can see the stretch inserts on the back of the boots that give them a really nice shape otherwise they would be more of a wellington. Goodness – I did brush my hair – honest!
