Outfit Post: Alpine

I apologise for looking quite so festive...

BUT... the nights are drawing in, I've had the heating on for the past two days and I've got a Warm Spice Yankee Candle that I'm dying to start burning. All this can mean only one thing... autumn is here. And, at the rate that this year's been flying past, winter won't be far behind.

When SimplyBe contacted me and asked if I'd like to choose an item for review I couldn't resist this Alpine Knit Cardigan. Autumn and winter have always been my favourite seasons of the year. I love the crunch of the leaves underfoot, the smell of bonfires in the air and the fact that I can legitimately eat treacle toffee whenever I like. I love being able to wear layers, boots, faux fur coats and big chunky scarves. Plus, it might have something to do with the fact that my birthday is in November. Oh, and there are the small matters of Hallowe'en, Bonfire Night AND Christmas. BEST. SEASONS.

Aside from the ridiculously cute furry hood, this cardigan is one of the warmest things I own and I can see myself wearing it a lot over the next few months. In fact, I have visions of wearing it while drinking mulled wine at the Christmas Markets in Manchester. Cannot. Wait.
