I love this time of year. I love it when it starts to get a bit chilly and I can get the boots and the jumpers out again. It is always so much easier to dress for the colder months than for the summer. During the summer, I always tend to overdress and find myself getting way too warm. At this time of year, when the temperature is just starting to drop, I love how I can just throw on a sweatshirt and not have to worry about overheating. It’s still warm enough to not have to wear a coat everyday, which is great. Although I do love coats, I am happy to not have to rely on them for a few more weeks. I recently partnered up with NA-KD an online clothing retailer, who let me choose a few pieces from the site.
Calvin Klein Sweatshirt
Although I’m not one for logos or designer clothing, I really loved this Calvin Klein monogram logo sweatshirt*. I can honestly say I’ve been wearing it ever since it arrived. I got it in a size Small which I would say is around an 8/10. It’s just the right size for me – I like my sweatshirts and jumpers to be a little baggy. I love how the neckline is quite high too. A lot of sweatshirts that I’ve got can be difficult to wear over t-shirts as you can see them underneath. Luckily, I can wear anything under this one without having to worry about that.
I’ve been wearing this sweatshirt mostly with jeans and trainers, but it also goes well with the Levi’s deconstructed skirt* which I also got from NA-KD. I wasn’t sure what size I was in the skirt, so I went for 29 which ended up being way too big. It turns out that 29 is a size 12 and I’m a size 8! It would have been a good idea if I checked the sizing charts on NA-KD. Luckily, this means that I can tuck the sweatshirt in which I find looks quite smart. If I don’t want to tuck anything into it, then a belt helps to stop it from falling down. I love fishnet tights and where them whenever I can. The fishnets go great with this particular outfit and and a bit of edginess to it. I also put on a pair of DM’s to toughen the look up a bit more. I got these Cherry Red Dr Martens about three years ago but I haven’t managed to break them in yet. I’ve recently taken the insoles out and they’re a lot more comfortable, so I think that this year is going to be the year it happens.
As well as stocking a great selection of brands from Calvin Klein, to Levi’s to Cheap Monday, NA-KD also have their own branded products. There’s so much that I could have chosen from the site and I found it quite hard to narrow it down to just a few pieces. The delivery was super quick, it arrived within two days by DHL despite it being shipped from The Netherlands. I will definitely be shopping there again.
