Transitioning to winter with Marks & Spencer

It’s time to transition to winter with Marks & Spencer knitwear! As exciting as I am about being able to wear knitwear, I must admit that I’m sad to say goodbye to summer.

The summer climate is one of the things I love most about Sydney. Since we arrived in Sydney last September, we had 4 months of bright sun and blue skies. Now that’s what makes me happy! Though I love summer, I can definitely handle winter. I’m a Dutch girl, I have no choice but to braise the cold! I’m used to rain, snow and icy wind that makes you feel as if your head might freeze off. It’s not that I like it, but I’m used to it.

The only thing I like about winter is a winter wardrobe. Yes, I’ll admit I got a bit tired of wearing shorts, shirts and flip-flops for 4 months. It gets tiring believe me. What I love about winter clothing? I love layering, I love oversized coats and I love knitwear. So when I heard about Marks & Spencer knitwear campaign, I checked out their webshop straight away.

Knitwear somehow is always fashionable, whether you are wearing a knitted jumper, a knitted skirt, a knitted scarf (oversized please!) or a knitted beanie. I love it all! Knitwear is stylish and keeps you warm. So when transitioning to a colder season, a knitwear piece is in order. It will keep you warm while you’re still wearing some of you’re favourite last season items, like these summer sandals and autumn trench coat. And what I love about this knitted jumper in particular, is the sleeves. I love a good bell sleeve 🙂

What I’m wearing:
MARKS & SPENCER knitted jumper
MARKS & SPENCER trench coat
