I got it in brownish colour and it's been absolutely great. Yes it is on the bigger side, so quite a roomy cardi, however nothing wrong with that, and in my opinion quite flattering. It's 60% cotton and I absolutely loved it on holiday over a dress during cooler evenings. Also really good to wear over pyjamas on holiday in the apartment when lounging around. Not really been wearing it with black jeans and a long sleeved top to work as originally intended but the quality of it is superb and it washes really well so I am sure I will have it for years to come to wear in lots of different ways.
