Sweatshirts have a funny effect on me. No matter how many I own I convince myself I need more. On spotting this my rational brain said ‘ But you already own at least 8 sweatshirts!’ the irrational one replied ‘ Yes, but THIS one has balloon sleeves, and it’s in optic white AND it is fleece backed so it’s like wearing a cuddly toy…’ The irrational side won in about, ooh, thirty seconds. I do have to perform a Houdini like contortion when taking it on and off to avoid make up residue/moisturiser/general dirt transferring to its snowy white neckline. I also have to steer clear of my children. I love it though, it feels summery and bright (even though its cosseting coziness renders it useless on a very warm day) and it lends any outfit that edgy Scandinavian cool.
