I feel like I’m constantly talking about TK Maxx on this blog. It’s one of those stores that I just can’t get enough of.
There are quite a few places I’ll find interesting for a period of time, become totally obsessed with and then ignore a couple of months later. They almost feel like phases and they never really find a place in my heart. TK Maxx on the other hand, is one of those stores I’ve shopped at since childhood and still can’t resist visiting. Although I must admit, I have to be in the right mindset. You can never go into TK Maxx when you’re exhausted or irritated, it just makes the mood worse. The best time to shop there is when you have plenty of energy and the determination to dig for the treasure. Maybe that’s why they named their loyalty cards, “Treasure” cards.
One of my recent purchases was this “USA” jumper that was only £11.99. It was one of those items that you just can’t ignore. It’s a one of a kind, something that would be difficult to find elsewhere and something that’s essential to your wardrobe. I’ve always wanted a varsity-style jumper like this, but not something cheap and flimsy that feels harsh on and skin and is going to fall apart in a matter of weeks.
SHOP THE LOOK
To my surprise, this jumper is actually lined with a fleece-like fabric, which means it’s absolutely perfect for this time of year. I spend my weekdays at my work desk, with a fan heater on and endless cups of herbal tea. This jumper is the perfect addition, because once it gets warm, it stays warm. The ideal insulator.
I have been trying to focus on basics for my wardrobe recently, because I figured a collection full of stand out pieces isn’t really building a great foundation for my future walk-in closet. I need a few more essentials, like cosy jumpers and plenty of leggings, so this purchase is a great place to start.
I love the oversized feel that it has, so perfect, so I’m sharing some of my favourite oversized items below!
With this rubbish weather and never-ending rainstorms, the comfier the outfit the better. Pinterest is the best place on the internet to get ideas for outfits and styling, I don’t know what I was doing before I made an account. I got the inspo for this jumper while browsing through my feed, so when I spotted one that’s pretty similar, I just knew I had to have it. It’s a purchase I haven’t regretted, and I honestly can’t wait to wear it to death.
