There's something about a slogan jumper or t-shirt that lures me in - especially one that has a slogan in French. So when Joanie Clothing reached out and asked if I wanted to style an outfit, it was only natural that I gravitated towards their slogan jumpers - because they do the best slogan jumpers. 

It seemed for a long while, I found myself wearing dark colours, regardless of the season and I own many a dark coloured jumper. But the vibrant blue of this 'Bonjour' Pascal Jumper spoke to me and I couldn't resist. Not only does it have the added bonus of a French word that I actually understand, but it's not just a printed slogan, but is embroidered. With so many slogan tees and jumpers on the market, it's really high quality and feels that little bit more luxurious than a typical high street offering. 

I paired it with this Janet A-Line Button Cord Skirt which is possibly my new favourite skirt. I've always struggled with button up skirts as if they don't fit right, they're incredibly unflattering and make me feel a bit like a stuffed sausage, but this one has a serious a-line cut which means it cinches at the waist and is really flattering! I love the fit of it and definitely think it's a bit of a wardrobe staple! Watch me as I get it in every colour... Joanie is one of those incredible brands that truly celebrates body diversity and actually features items of clothing on more than one size and body type so for a skirt to fit me right was wonderful!

To complete my French-girl look, I paired it with a simple pair of nude ballet flats and this incredible eBay basket bag that cost £5 and is something I regularly receive compliments on! Because of the embroidered detail on the jumper, I think it works best as part of a non-fussy look so that the attention is entirely on the jumper.

What do you think of this outfit? Perfect for transitional weather? Have you heard of Joanie Clothing before?
