Cream Bobble Cardigan






playsuit, topshop
cardigan, laura ashley
necklace, river island
shoes, new look


Please excuse the mess that is my hair and my grumpy expression. I'm not in a bad mood but the weather seemed to be in one as it was all foggy, misty and raining. I'm wearing two pairs of tights as it is well chilly, the top pair are woolly for extra warmth! I really like the playsuit but it has huge frilly sleeves that I'm not keen on so the cardigan stays on. It's nippy out at the moment anyway so there is no chance of me stripping down and taking my warm bobble cardigan off. The playsuit came with a wrap around belt in matching fabric but I used my skinny black belt with it today instead. The cardigan is a hand me down from my mum, vintage Laura Ashley. I only recently managed to snatch it off her after many years of begging this September when we moved as she did a huge wardrobe clean out. My sister is very very jealous that I finally got it but she got her fair share of goodies from mum that I'm envious of including a cream cable knit jumper that was knitted by our nanna.

I wore the above outfit to the sales today. Usually I avoid the January sales, I think it has something to do with having once been a shop assistant during a sale season and it bringing me nothing but bad memories. It's a total nightmare for those who have been lucky enough not to experience it and it doesn't half drive you crazy when you attempt to tidy the rails whilst a determined shopper behind you is pulling everything off its hanger and throwing it on the floor. I managed to survive today whilst feeling a lot of empathy for the sales assistants and brought two cardigans, one in the sale from Zara and the other not from the sale but I couldn't resist it anyway from Urban Outfitters. I much preferred the layout of the sale in Urban Outfitters compared to all the other stores I visited. Obviously someone had just gone around the store stamping all the sale products with a price gun with the sale price stickers. This meant sale items were laid out alongside full price items and in the same format so finding my size wasn't difficult, there was no messy, mix matched, crazy sale section and it was a nice to have kept the layout of the sections with products that went well together. The worst sale was without a doubt in Topshop. Rails were lined up without enough space between them and it was an insane squashed mess. I got awfully shoved and pushed about and didn't find a single thing I liked. I'm pleased about my purchases though, I've been meaning to get some warm woolly cardigans to throw over and compliment my outfits instead of hiding them under my huge coat.

I love the playsuit, and the cardigan of course! They work really nicely together, and I can definitely understand why you wore two pairs of tights! I went to the sales today too, but they weren't too bad. There were only a few rails left in Topshop, and I just generally avoided them, haha.

I can see why your sister is jealous of your cardigan! The only word i can use to descirbe it is dainty haha. Hmm luckily my topshop is only small and fairly organised but yeah i didn't find anything i liked either. It feels like they are keeping the good stuff back for newyears sale. Thats my hopeful thinking anywho. And yes topshop is way overpriced! Long comment! xx

i so agree with you about sales. i do love a good bargain, but being a shop assistant i tend to hate those customers who like nothing more than to make a complete mess of the store!

thank you so much for your comment sarah :) it actually made me smile because i grew up in scotland and moved to australia when i was 10....so im still a brit at heart <3

great blog too, i will be following you too now :) (oh and i also have that topshop playsuit!) x

I loved the sales but my welsh family weren't impressed by the masses of people and I decided not to go in topshop Oxford Street x
