Cashmere and two toddlers don't usually mix well from experience, until now! Thanks to two friends and Cove founders Sarah and Jacqueline who have created a luxurious knitwear brand for everyday so we can look good effortlessly.
Being a busy mum of two, I need clothes that are simple and easy to wear, yet at the same time are stylish and flattering. Introducing the very eye catching and super soft Holly Star jumper in navy and pink.
We went for a little break away last weekend. The beach can be one of two things either blistering hot or artic cold, as we headed to North Wales I had no doubt I had to pack a jumper! The sun shone for two days, although the wind soon took the edge off the warmth. How thankful was I to have the Holly Star with me? very... It's a cashmere mix (5% cashmere, 95% cotton) so although its not a chunky jumper, it is, by all accounts beautifully cosy and warm. It didn't feel out of place wearing this jumper with my denim shorts, if fact, I've never been complimented so much for an outfit!!!
On the beach, in town and in the bar this jumper turned heads (so much so, someone asked if the could 'stroke' my arm!), I can see this being a very versatile piece in any wardrobe. It's comfortable enough to throw on for the school run and stylish enough to wear on an evening out, its the perfect investment.
So, what made me look into the niche company Cove? Without a doubt it was the way they use classic base colours for their jumpers and ponchos and then from nowhere add a subtle hint or generous splash of neon or lurex sparkle, who in their right mind could resist that combination? Not me! Suitable for ladies of all ages, this playful trademark would cheer up any dull day.
From previous posts, you will know I'm pretty short in statue! This, however, was not an issue with this jumper, the fit is so flattering and the cut is such that it would become most women. The sleeves are slightly more fitted and ribbed (great detail), this add shape and structure to jumper allowing you to casually Push your sleeves up and still feel you're doing your jumper justice. This also means that if you have shorter arms you can turn them back and continue to look good.
I can completely understand how and why this jumper was a sell out when it was very first launched, it has got everything you need and want from a jumper, from being machine washable to being a classic timeless design.
The Cove journey actually began with its signature reversible ponchos, today continues to grow with new styles that show off the simplicity and elegance of its designs with eye catching details and motifs. Ever loyal to its original desire for practical style, the collection continues to include both cashmere and cotton cashmere pieces that focus on gorgeous colour combinations, quality yarns and original designs.
