like the brown one

SmugColditz Sat 01-Nov-08 18:25:03

the grey floral will look nice with blue jeans

I don't like the red top, it's too tomatoey

the chocolate flower print would go with both

I don't like the stripy one.

uberalice Sat 01-Nov-08 18:25:29

Like the last 2.

ChasingSquirrels Sat 01-Nov-08 18:28:52

lol at tomatoey - I wasn't that sure about the red one.
I like the stripy one best, which none of you like.

what about
choc cardi
same cardi in orange

I only like the grey floral one - but tbh I am the queen of black, so feel free to ignore me.

mrsmaidamess Sat 01-Nov-08 18:33:37

I think they are all a bit <mumsy>? Sorry

SmugColditz Sat 01-Nov-08 18:34:21

The brown cardi, deffo.

ChasingSquirrels Sat 01-Nov-08 18:34:47

that's fine, I'm a mum - pmsl.
What sort of thing do you wear in the day?

mrsmaidamess Sat 01-Nov-08 18:36:39

No offence intended! What do I wear during the day? I might wear a dress over leggings or jeans, or layer a couple of long sleeved tops. I think the shapes of the ones you chose were nice, but prints a bit old fashioned.

ChasingSquirrels Sat 01-Nov-08 18:39:05

hum, I am 36, I have basically worn jeans, t-shirts, jumpers - but cardigans nowadays, for my whole life. I am recently single. I want a change - but I also want to be WARM and feel comfortable in what I am wearing.

milge Sat 01-Nov-08 18:40:06

All grim, sorry.
The principles brown cardigan is the best of a bad lot.

janeite Sat 01-Nov-08 18:41:05

My current favourite look is a long sleeved scoop neck thermal top, with a v neck jumper, or a wrap cardigan worn over it. Because I tend to like my knitwear to be 3-quarter sleeved (my wrists get itchy otherwise) I'm liking the softness of the thermal tops underneath!

mrsmaidamess Sat 01-Nov-08 18:42:03

Ok jeans t shirts and jumpers are fine but its the shape that dictates if they are square or modern. for example

something like that with a little cardi and some nice jeans would look a bit funkier
oui, or non?

mrsmaidamess Sat 01-Nov-08 18:43:28

cute cardi

janeite Sat 01-Nov-08 18:43:33

Is it me, or does Kew stuff seem hideously over-priced? That's a pretty top but no way would I pay £34 for it.

ChasingSquirrels Sat 01-Nov-08 18:43:37

oh, that is so not me - although it is something I might wear for work.
Off to browse that site now.

mrsmaidamess Sat 01-Nov-08 18:44:17

Yes Kew is not cheap but its the shapes I'm showing, I can't afford Kew at the moment either so primark here I come!

ChasingSquirrels Sat 01-Nov-08 18:47:40

ok, so I'm not a Kew person.
I think I need to go into town, I'm not a clothes shopping person either!

mrsmaidamess Sat 01-Nov-08 18:48:49

Well, at least you've learnt something tonight!grin have a look in Primark..they have loads of tee shirts in different styles for layering and lots of nice knitwear, long belted cardi's etc for keeping you cosy. Happy shopping!

Miyazaki Sat 01-Nov-08 18:49:21

gap is good for casual tops, with a bit less frump factor than those.

or pick up everything you quite like in h&m, try all on - you might get some surprises?

Princeonthemove Sat 01-Nov-08 18:49:37

I am afraid I agree with the no's..all a little average verging on the depressing. I couldn't imagine feeling nice in them. Nice suggestion from Mrsm.

ChasingSquirrels Sat 01-Nov-08 18:51:25

nearest primark is norwich I think (I'm near Cambridge) so a bit far. I'll go into Camb next sat when ex has the children.
I do like the grey floral one from my original post though.
Thanks very much all.

Lapsedrunner Sat 01-Nov-08 18:56:45

I'm normally a jeans, long sleeve tshirt & fleece girl (well aging mum actually) as a practical outfit for dealing with DS (age 6) and 3 times daily dog walking. However I recently bought a couple of those tops that look like a shirt under a v neck jumper (but actually one item, never liked them before) from Matalan (can't find on website to show you). Not normally a Matalan shoper but at the price thought it worth a go and I have had several compliments grin.

Amandoh Sat 01-Nov-08 23:40:29

I know this suggestion is a bit boring but M&S have great tops for wearing with jeans. They come in lots of sizes, wash well and are not expensive so you can treat yourself to a few at a time.

Grey one.

Mock layer.

Pink mock layer.

Stripey boat neck.

White ruffle front short sleeve shirt. It would also look cute under a little cardi.
