"I think we're just gonna to have to be secretly in love with each other and leave it at that, Richie"

I have been a Wes Anderson enthusiast for quite some time, I fell in love with his distinctive cinematography and visuals, dream colour palettes and quirky characters when I first watched The Life Aquatic. (Excellent soundtrack, too). 

My favourite film of his is, of course, The Royal Tenenbaums. (If you haven't seen it, go and watch it immediately). So when SHRIMPS (another dreamy yet usually unattainable brand I'm obsessed with), designed a jumper dedicated to the heartbreaking love story between Margot and Ritchie, I did a little squeal, pondered for a while, and decided to welcome another jumper to my knitwear collection. 

Absolutely beautiful and also suitably versatile with a variety of outfits - it is my mission to style my new jumper in as many ways as possible to justify spending more than a month's rent on one item of clothing…  

On this occasion I have worn it loosely tucked into my new flared jeans from Topshop (a style which is very new to me, but I am totally digging at the moment). They can be a little unflattering to be honest, but they're super comfy and make me feel like Farrah Fawcett on a skateboard. 

On my feet are another new addition to my wardrobe - my pink Adidas Gazelles. Which I feel compliment the Wes inspired colour palette of this look beautifully. I'm v.much into pink at the moment, particularly when paired with teal and mint green.



  1. Such a lovely outfit! I adore Margot (and I always wanted to be a Tenenbaum) so I completely understand the appeal of this gorgeous jumper. It's funny, I'm also a lot into pink and green at the moment (I even bought a green (avocado!) duvet set, that I'll pair with a pink blanket and sommes plants for my bedroom 💚 ) Thank you for this lovely post, have a good week!

    1. Thank you kindly! I'm so glad you liked the post :)
