It’s been a really cold start to winter in Melbourne – the coldest in 65 years, apparently – and my staple range of stretchy cotton cardigans really isn’t cutting the mustard in the keeping-me-warm stakes.

After shivering through the last days of autumn, I thought I’d take advantage of the free world-wide delivery, and multi-buy discounts at Woolovers and get a few merino/cashmere blend cardigans to wear this winter. I’m so glad I did because they’re snuggly warm and great quality for the price.

I’ve been wearing this russetty-orange number for a couple of weeks now, and it’s still in great condition. It hasn’t lost its shape, or become hilariously pilly, and while it’s not as butter-soft as my pure cashmere cardigans, it’s still soft enough to wear against the skin without feeling like I’ve been attacked by a swarm of bees.

I’ve been so impressed with the range of colours that I have to tell you that they’re probably going to be my go-to shop whenever I’m looking for cardigans from now on. They’ve got cotton cardigans and cotton-silk blend cardigans which will be nice as the weather warms up. And they’ve got some pieces with stripes or polkadots too – yay! I like the way they’ve got actual measurements for width, length, and sleeve length. I bought L’s, and they fit my F-cups fine. You can shop by colour, which means that (just letting you know) there’s an entire section for mustard yellow cardigans.

If you’re interested in snapping up a couple then I’ll let you know that when I placed my order with Woolovers they sent me a 10% discount offer to share with other first-time customers. Just click here for the code.

Meanwhile, in other news, I’ve discovered my dream belt! This classy little piece is from blogger Caitlin Bradley’s online shop Closet Confessions Boutique. Caitlin’s started the shop towards the end of last year, and has cherry picked some really cute rockabilly-styled pieces including dresses, skirts, accessories, handbags, and these OMGCUTE bow belts that I spotted on Instagram and knew I’d have to add to my wardrobe. They’re a steal at just $12, come in six different colours, and fit up to a 50″ waist, so win-win-win as far as I’m concerned.

  1. Oh I LOVE that cardigan!! It’s summer here, but I’m never not dreaming about my beloved cardigans. I’m going to have to check this out! 🙂

  2. I had that top once, but instead I got it from best and less. It was like $4 so I bought it. However it didn’t fit so I got rid of it. Then I lost weight and it would now be too big. Bitter irony. Sad regret.

  3. Ah, if only I were a first-time Woolovers customer! I like them too. My only issue is that their cardis tend to look a bit matronly on me; I wish they’d introduce some more youthful cuts alongside their “classic” styles. But, definitely good quality for price, and I am loving their new colors and patterns!

    • Yeah, I think I’ll mostly buy the cropped cardigans, though they have a really gorgeous boxy layering piece at the moment that I’m tempted to check out in the warmer months

  4. Being able to shop by colour is really handy! Love that rusty orange on you. And the belts are a great find!

  5. I was drafting an email to you on Wednesday about whether you had found a brand of well-priced and durable cardigans (ie,ones that won’t pill before you leave the house). As usual I was interrupted by one of the children I’m raising (I’m a SAHM) and eventually the window was closed by my eldest who likes to play with my iPad when I’m not looking.

    Thank you for answering my telepathic query! Haha.
