Changing of seasons


My summer clothing is officially packed away!  It was one of those jobs that I thought I'd have done in an hour - two and a half hours and about a hundred sweaters later, everything was finally sorted.  And my wardrobe is now chock full of knitwear (as opposed to just half full in the summer months...).  It appears I've had a few too many charity shop bargains this year in the form of woolly goodness.  I literally can't fit in another thing into my new, much smaller wardrobe, so it must end now!  

Luckily, I wasn't really aware of my overflowing problem in Blackpool last month, where I picked up this La Redoute dress in a charity shop for £3.29.  It's been worn every few days since then, I love it.  The perfect casual style.  Also back in the wardrobe is my Mother-made cardigan (complete with super long sleeves!) and my favourite boots.  Oh, and those hundred other sweaters.  Stand by for a knitty themed blog post soon...

  5. Oh the cardigan is wonderful, I've just replaced a tatty one with a lovely new oversized green one from Matalan (not handmade!)
