Summer has officially left the building. However, I've been very pleased to note that neon (along with florals and, yes, monochrome!) has retained a firm grip on the high street rails this A/W - much as I love a good burgundy, you can't beat a shot of shocking pink for an instant mood uplift (something we surely need more and more often as the nights and clouds close in).
So, I couldn't resist picking up this cropped waffle knit jumper in Forever 21 for a neon hit in chill-beating form! It's been invaluable during England's recent period of "between-seasons" schizoid weather, allowing me to carry on rocking my summer staples whilst avoiding the urge to smother my legs and midriff in additional layers for as long as possible! I'm sure I'll find a way to work it into my "deepest winter" wardrobe in due course, but, in honour of the passing of that brief window of opportunity during which knitwear/skin combos can be flaunted without risk of (a) heatstroke or (b) frostbite, here's how I've been wearing it over the last couple of weeks...
