Finally another installment in my little ‘how I wear it now’ series! Not such a flashback this time though, as I only made this cardigan 2 years or so ago. I modelled the teal version of the pattern for the book, and decided that in beige it would be the perfect ‘go-with-everything-cardi’ to quote my 13 year old self! Since then my style has obviously changed, but this Stonor cardigan is still a pretty good basic. Deceptively warm for a lacy little thing too! I find it surprising how much of a difference it makes to wear merino wool etc. as opposed to whatever it is shop bought knits are often made from. I’m not really one for christmas jumpers but winter woolies without the rudolph prints are good in my book. That’s one trend I haven’t embraced!
Burgundy is always a good choice, don’t you think? My nan picked this skirt for my birthday a while back, and whilst it’s a little roomy round the waist now, I shall continue to wear it because I like the colour. Little details like the leather look waistband and (annoyingly fake) pockets make it that little bit different too.
(Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Colour in ‘Crushed Plum’). Sorry in advance if you get sick of the sight of this… it’s ma fave so I’ll be wearing it lots!
I threw caution to the wind and bought myself a pair of platform boots. Never mind that they make me as tall as my 6’3 dad, they were only £15. Sometimes it would be nice to be a tad shorter I guess! Aall you short girls complaining – being rather lengthy ain’t all it’s cracked up to be! I’m never going to spend much on heels as I’m limited in how often I’ll wear them, so snapping up this Primark bargain seemed like a good idea 🙂
