Find yourself forever scrolling through fashion sites? I do on ASOS mainly, in the run up to midnight, wondering whether to panic buy some items with my next day premier delivery. I’m sure others will agree it’s rather addictive and ruddy dangerous haha! I love online shopping but sometimes excessively scrolling to find something you REALLY like can be a pain..
Joanie Clothing have been on my radar for a while now so when they asked if I’d like to collaborate with them I bit their hands off! (Not literally, I promise) I don’t think I’ve found a fashion brand that appeals to me quite as much as they do. Their clothing items are retro inspired with a modern twist. I absolutely love their slogan / saying jumpers. I have to say it was a difficult affair trying to pick only two items off their site, I had my eyes on so many!
I decided to shoot one of the jumpers at home and one on a day out with my sister. We had the perfect brunch date on Sharrowvale Rd, Sheffield (near Eccy rd if you know there better). There are so many spots where you could take photographs! I love the oldy worldy feel of the area, there are so many original shop fronts and new places springing up too. My mum grew up around there and talks about how it’s all very similar to how it used to be. It’s leafy (well we are in Sheffield!), green and really lovely to have a stroll around. It’s a perfect Sunday spot for drinking all the coffee and nipping in unique artsy shops.
The reason I’ve named this blog post ‘Staying home or going out’ is because I feel like these jumpers transition really well from a casual daytime look to a more dressed up evening look. I’ve not styled myself for a night out, but the jumpers are certainly nicer than your average knit, they feel super soft and are slim fitted. I think they would work really well with a slinky satin midi skirt. Equally they’d go well with a denim pinafore or with skinnies like the ones I’m wearing here. My point is that you can wear them in so many different ways, they’re very versatile.
Design wise I love it. It kinda reminds me of Bowie, so maybe that’s why I like it so much. Can I please be in in the spiders from mars?

There are few things that make me as happy as staying home and listening to my favourite records. So I wanted to team that with my new fave jumper. I adore it! It reminds me of something I’d have worn as a child and loved. There are so many clothing items where I think – I really wish they made this in adult size! I believe this is one of those items, and gladly they do! I love to have fun with fashion, mixing bright colours, prints and styles. I’ve definitely started dressing more like ‘me’ recently. Joanie have helped me to learn more about my style and what I love, so I see many more orders on the horizon..
