I've always been a huge fan of Urban Outfitters but the UK price tag is often a little higher than what I'm comfortable paying. However, I've come across some great items in there recently that weren't too crazily priced, and this BDG brand jumper is one of them. At first glance you may think it isn't anything special. You would be wrong! The width of the stripes, the fine knit, the oversized fit, the drop hem and especially the length are all perfect for me. I LOVE IT. It's the perfect addition to my predominantly casual wardrobe. Here's how I've been wearing it this week.
Here's a tip: if you're going on holiday to the USA, do make a beeline for Urban Outfitters over there as it works out quite a bit cheaper than here. I went nuts in there during my US road trip last autumn, it was amazing! However, I should probably point out that this jumper was bought in Birmingham (West Midlands, not Alabama) which doesn't sound anywhere near as glamourous.

In hindsight, she wasn't too impressed about it all:
