Cardigan: Friends of Couture
Belt: City Chic
Please excuse my absence – work’s heating up at the moment as Christmas looms in the booktrade. I love this time of year, it’s kind of a if-you-can’t-beat-it-join-it kind of time when I like to embrace tacky Christmas earrings, and carols, and present buying and all that palaver.
I spent the weekend visiting with The Sophisticate’s parents in their extraordinary house in the country. It’s one of those amazing places that are packed to the gills with bits and pieces, collections of antiques, random dusty books and art, art, art everywhere! I can imagine it featuring in some old-fashioned children’s book where visiting kids become lost in their own world (on another one) within its walls.
They would certainly have had to over this last weekend, because The Sophisticate and I brought the rain down with us and we were delightfully, deliciously homebound for the majority of out visit.
After a week or so of consistently more than 30 degree days the change was utterly welcome, but I was a bit uprepared and (oh woe) had to buy a cardigan to keep me warm.
I settled for this amazing green Friends Of Couture cardigan, which is virtually the same bottle green as my new Veronika Maine jacket
Also, they’re not exactly tacky tinsel Christmas Earrings, but I’m loving these new earrings, bought at Sinc Homewares in Beaumaris. For days I saved the little label that said what brand they were (pigeon something??) but of course the moment the time came to blog them I’ve lost the damn thing and my Google-Fu is failing me. If I find it again I’ll update this post.
