Aye Aye Captain

You know how occasionally you're browsing through the new arrivals on a website and something jumps out at you as being something you absolutely, positively have to own? That happened to me a little while ago when I was browsing the Topshop website and I came across a gorgeous stripy jumper-with a PARROT on it. Anyone who knows me will know that there was no way I could let such a beautiful piece of knitwear go, and thanks to a few lovely enablers on Twitter (you all know who you are) I had added it to my basket within the hour. 

It arrived in the post a few days ago, and it is gorgeous. Its a nicely oversized, slouchy jumper, brightly coloured and super comfortable. Today I chose to wear it quite casually, with a pair of dark denim jeans and some grey ankle boots. 




Can you see that hint of red on the other sleeve? That is my favourite part of this jumper-the parrot! Its on your sleeve so you look like a pirate with a parrot on your shoulder! (Simple things for simple minds?)




I don't know why nobody has thought of putting a parrot on a jumper sleeve before, it is pure genius. Here's a little close up of Polly for you. 




I love, love, LOVE it. What do you all think of the new addition to my wardrobe zoo? Are any of you tempted by it? Warning: Find someone with a student discount-I bought this with my tax refund so it didn't feel like real money (sorry mum) but it isn't the cheapest of jumpers!
