insta inspiration!

Now and again I see something on Instagram that I just can't get out of my head. This sends me into a spin....cue hours of internet trawling to find a certain item, only for my search to end in frustration as I can't find what I'm looking for! Don't you just hate that. But! The shopping fairies were smiling down on me this time and by chance I found just what I was looking for!


This also comes in red



I went for navy, I love the red but I have the berry red puffy sleeved sweater from COS and I'm not sure this shade of red would suit me......besides the navy will go with lots of stuff in my wardrobe.

Here's the Insta pic that inspired me.....



Pretty similar isn't it?! Inspiration courtesy of the gorgeous Audrey Lombard, whose sweater is Leon & Harper.....nowhere to be found on the internet! I just happened to see this post a couple of days later on the Banana Republic feed and hey presto the sweater went straight in my basket! I would normally think to check out BR website so I could have totally missed this fab homage to the Leon & Harper one! 


I've ordered a size small.....I missed my delivery yesterday so I'm hoping to get my hands on the sweater tomorrow and I shall share on Instagram!

What do you think of my latest find? Please tell me I am not alone in spending hours locating my current object of desire?!

  2. Live the jumper, what a great find! If you don't mind be asking, what size are you normally in tops? I am usually an 8 but not sure whether to order an xs or a s. Thanks for the inspiration, I love reading your blog. X

  7. What a pretty sweater Michelle....It's nice to see knitwear that is a bit more glam rather than utility looking? You look stylishly attired for these freezing temps but my fave outfit picture is the one with the Zara coat by the railings...Such a fab shot it's looks so professional!

    1. Brilliant! I had heard it was sold out so I just checked and in the navy they only have xxs and xs left so good job getting in there quick! Isn't BR's delivery great....super speedy delivery! xx

  9. That's a really cute jumper Michelle! I do like a bit of BR, although I find the sizing is a little strange - I have a parka in a small that is huge on me!! Sadly, the Banana Republic store in the Trafford Centre has just closed, so I'll have to get my fix online from now on :-( xx

    1. Thanks Becky.....I am rather pleased with the sweater, such a great bit of detail that makes it that bit special! I was worried about the sizing never having bought clothing from them before and if I was ordering again I'd definitely order a couple of different sizes to try.....I got a small and got lucky this time but I get the feeling it is pretty random xx
