OOTD - Cable Knit Cardi




Cardigan-New Look//Top-New Look// Jeans-Dorothy Perkins//
 Necklace-Gift// Shoes-Primark (recent)// Belt-New Look (old, from another pair of trousers)
 
 
When I buy new clothes, I'm not one of these people who can't wait to wear them. In fact I'm the complete opposite. I lovingly hang them in my wardrobe, with all the labels still attached, until an occasion worthy enough of my beautiful new outfit comes along.
 
This cardigan was no exception. I tried it on with the white top underneath, and everything about ti was perfect. I had no intention of buying the white top, but it was almost as if they had to be together. Then I had to wait and wait, but no event was coming up. In the end I wore it to work! To work! I just couldn't wait to wear it any longer.
 
There's something about this outfit, that seems ever so slight 'grown-up casual' to me. It's smart, yet dressed down all at the same time. This is currently my go-to outfit. For date nights, casual meals out, trips to the cinema, shopping trips with a friend, quiet drinks in the local, and yes, ever so occasionally, days at the office. But it pulls off all of these occasions.
 
I do believe I have a slight obsession with New Look, considering this is the first of two outfits, featuring items from New Look, I intend to show on here. In fact, this doesn't even begin to show case my slight obsession lately!

  2. I do love a good chunky cardigan although sadly I have not yet found *quite* the right one. So many of my clothes too linger in my wardrobe waiting for the right occasion (which never comes) which seems silly really! x

  3. I do the same thing, I buy clothes and stuffs and keep it with the tag on it waiting for the right occasion. When its the right occasion, I remove the tag and wear it. My cousin marvels at my patience lol...
    Loved the jeans and the shoes...

    1. The only downside is when my other half goes through and comments on how many things still have labels on - he doesn't get it lol
