Is it a Sweater or a Jumper?

Moving to another country that speaks English, one wouldn’t think there wouldn’t be an communication problems, right? Wrong.

I have a fair few friends who grew up in the UK, and have their own respective ways of speaking. They all apparently have very different accents as well, but being from good ol’ America, I can hardly tell the difference. While in basic, everyday conversation I often have to ask them to repeat a certain phrase or word a couple of times before I completely understand what it is they’re saying. To be fair, though, they too have to ask me to explain what I mean by some words and sayings as well. We often laugh at this funny “language barrier” and continue on with the conversation. Quickly I am beginning to say jumper over sweater, and trousers of pants!

While getting dressed for the frigidly cold English weather we are currently having, I commonly reach for a “jumper” to complete the daily looks. Thank goodness turtlenecks are in, as they really do provide just the best extra bit of coziness. My current fave sweater (pictured) is from Topshop that I got over the holiday break. So warm and inviting, and I get compliments on it whenever I wear it! Comfortable and fashionable really cannot be beat. Paired with some sleek black booties and a bright swipe of Charlotte Tilbury lipstick completes this everyday look.

How do you stay warm in these cold months? I’m thinking of really going for the pom-pom hat trend, like this one. Hope you’re all staying warm out there!
