Chunky knit is my favourite item this season and there is a reason why! To be honest, in previous years I wore a chunky knit on rare occasions but this year I saw a change of it becoming somewhat of a crucial part of my outfit selection.
The reason behind me option for a chunky knit so often is that the cold weather days making me crave carbs of all sorts, especially now that I’m making conscious decision to eat more vegan foods at home. I find myself feeling little heavier than usual, and although this is a very standard winter process for me this year feels like my cravings have increased. With food deliveries offering various vegan options including my favourite vegan pizzas, I went from barely eating carbs to eating carbs only.
I feel so much smaller when I wear my chunky knit and I’m so happy that it’s all over high street stores this season. It comes in so many different colours, shapes and sizes. Mine is bright fuchsia and it’s from Topshop, I opted for size 12 as it was the smallest available but I have selected a few other colours for you guys below. It’s so comfy and stylish and the best of all it makes me feel so small.
I think the other reason behind me opting more for chunky knits is that I haven’t been to the gym for over a month. I make a conscious decision to go every Monday, I even take my kit with me to work but somehow work always gets in the way. Some of you may know that I have quit my full-time job to pursue my blogging career and make it a success so setting everything up before I go to Asia in January, in all honesty, has been quite hard on me. I feel like I will be adding an extra section to my blog to cover the business of blogging and how to deal with it so expect a change in the content you see from me in the future.
I really want to share more of the real situations and reasons behind certain decisions, like my chunky knit obsession, to show you guys more of my real life and self. I also understand this puts me in the situation where I can be judged more but I started this blog for a reason and if there is one positive voice in comparison to 100 negative out there, I will count it as my personal success.
Today is Monday and I have decided to go to the gym on my lunch break. I woke up before work to write this post so I can make the gym happen. Gym really helps me as it puts me in a better mental state where I feel good about myself, and I want that feeling back. And even though I really love this look and midi pleated skirt mixed with Chunky Knits are super cute, I want to feel like I chose to wear a chunky knit for fashion not as a shield and a mean to make myself feel better.
Happy Monday Everybody!
