Outfit Post: Mango Crochet Sweatshirt

Last Friday, after the school run, I set off to pick up my Mum and stepfather from their cruise holiday. The ship was docking at Southampton and I couldn't wait to see them! It had been a strangely quiet week with my Mum away and randomly my husband was also away with my Dad in Belgium!

I had to get ready in a rush and wanted to wear my comfy uniform of boyfriend jeans, sweatshirt and ballet pumps. I also had to go straight to a work meeting later in the day, so I decided to wear this new sweatshirt from Mango. Although it's a sweater, the crotchet sleeves elevate it to something a bit more special:

Mango Crotchet Sleeve Sweatshirt £34.99





Mango have an amazing collection this spring/summer and there are so many things that I could have bought, but this was an absolute must as it really stood out.

I'm wearing it with my True Religion boyfriend jeans, Hultquist necklace from Yard and yellow snakeskin ballet shoes from Topshop:


And here is a closer look at the pretty detail on the sleeves:

I can't wait to wear it on a more summery day with the white Mango distressed jeans that I featured on the blog last week here.

Have you checked out Mango this season and has anything tempted you?

Finishing with a picture of my 70s fancy dress outfit for a party on Saturday night:

  4. The mango sweatshirt is lovely - I think lace work/crotchet integrated into clothing looks really good and 'ups' the look of the garment. - wonderful.

    Wow to your party outfit - That is a pattern and a half and some.
