OOTD: AZTEC HOTPANTS ft. SPRING KNIT

Jumper - Wild Heart
Hotpants - New Look 
Fur Waistcoat - Topshop
Necklace - Vintage (costume jewellery)
Bracelets - DIY (leopard) & H&M (leather)
Ring - Primark

I've always had a thing for knitted jumpers, chunky, alpine-print ones especially for those freezing cold British evenings or those brightly coloured sports-esque ones perfect with shorts for spring/autumn. 

So, as spring is fast-approaching I've had my eyes open for a neutral coloured jumper - warm enough to keep off that sometimes sharp spring wind but cool enough to allow me to soak in as much sunshine as possible. 

Conveniently, on a trip to a local small boutique, Wild Heart I came across this gorgeous beige number which drapes of the shoulders and has an interesting assymetric hem - easy to wear & flattering.

I've had these hotpants for well over a year now, but I can never resist wearing them. With their brightly coloured, busy print and vintage shape they're a statement piece and are easy to dress up or down. 

Also, in case you were wondering, the unsightly purple abundance on my foot is my cast - had an operation on my toes a few weeks ago, makes dressing SO difficult and skinny jeans a big NO NO for me haha :(
