WIT mama Friday: the fuss about Acne jumpers

This week I've been on the hunt for good jumpers. You may think it's an easy task but actually, it isn't. I don't know about you, but for the next 4 to 5 months it's all I will be wearing so I really want them to be nice. 

Acne mohair and wool sweater £220
I knew exactly what I wanted and it wasn't easy to find. I wanted an easy, oversize pullover type of jumper - the sort of thing that works with leather leggings at work and with jeans and a T-shirt at the weekend. Nothing fussy, nothing precious just a couple of good jumpers. I banned myself from buying any navy or grey, and I've had my eyes peeled for the perfect thing. I tried Zara (everything feels cheap), I tried J.Crew (everything is cashmere), I went back to Sandro and Isabel Marant where I bought my two most successful jumpers to date, but nothing. 

Then I was in Liberty yesterday and I spotted a mannequin wearing an Acne amazing grey A-line ribbed sweater ( I LOVED it but no grey!!), I tried it in navy too but I really wanted something a bit different. 

Acne ribbed V neck jumper £270
Then I spotted a black super oversize ribbed sweater and a bottle green fluffy jumper, both from Acne and both very generous fit - the sort of thing I will want to wear on a Sunday morning under a big coat. They might not look like much in cut outs but I know know what the fuss is about with Acne sweaters - they are ALL amazing! The price was on the precious side but I've learnt from the past that if I don't love it I don't wear it, so there it went. I'm wearing it today for a day with Greta and can't wait to wear it on Monday with leather bottoms and heels.
