Cardigan: Barkins
Skirt: Sussan
Shoes: Claude D’alban
Brooch: My Mum’s
Yay! I’m halfway through a four days weekend, and feeling a smidge more relaxed than I have in a while.
I’ve had my hair cut (finally) and my horoscope told me – no kidding now – to “go online and buy those things that you’ve been hankering for” so I splurged a little during the 25% off Dorothy Perkins sale, and also picked up a cute cardigan and a no-doubt too-short skirt from New Look. Frugal February is well and truly over, methinks.
Alas, one of my more recent purchases – the snooty giraffe sweater – has turned out to be one of those items that simply doesn’t photograph well. I wore it a few days ago to blog for you, but the photos were not terribly flattering, so unless I come up with some genius new way of wearing it (any ideas?) you might not see it again 🙁

  1. I think the giraffe sweater really suits you, as is. Looks like fun to wear!
    Oh, you also inspired me to get a fringe cut into my hair. I'm no Frocks & Frou Frou, but I look pretty good. Thanks.

  2. I don't think the giraffe jumper looks bad! But if you're not happy with the look, maybe try with wider legged jeans?

    I have spent so much this past week!! I purchased:
    slim leg black jeans
    denim waistcoat
    7 new t-shirts
    2pairs of shoes
    and some pandora charms!!!
    Ooh & a gorgeous polka dot dress for a wedding I'm attending!

    So bad … I'm going to have an non spend April!

  3. Just because the giraffe sweater doesn't make a fabulous photograph doesn't mean it's not the most awesome thing EVER.

    I think, if you were feeling wee and faerielike, it'd be cute to see it with a sort of fluffy skirt and polka dot tights. I think, instead of de-emphasizing the giraffe, you should take those spots and that whimsy and run with it.

  4. I love that pretty little spring top and the giraffe sweater! I like it with jeans, but I think it would be cute with leggings too if it's not too warm for you!

  5. Honestly: The giraffe sweater is beautiful on you, REALLY beautiful on you 😉
    And honestly again: if you keep on not liking it, can I please have it. lol 🙂
    I know, I've got some nerves to just ask that, being that this is the first actual comment I leave in here ;p
    In the other hand, I've been following this blog for a month now, I don't comment cause I don't have a blog of my own and until recently I didn't know I could comment regardless…
    Have a great weekend 😀

  6. I love your sweater so much – please don't get rid of it (unless you want to post it over to me in Ireland 😉

    Your cardi brooch is adorable too.

  7. Your taste in vintage jewellery is excellent.

    I am a Mum and I own a brooch just like that one.

    In the 1960s lots of young girls had "bluebird" jewellery. I still have my brooch, a necklace of small birds, as well as a locket with a bluebird on it.


  8. LOVE the giraffe sweater, must go online immediately and see if i can get one. idea for wearing it – with black pencil skirt and fun/crazy shoes perhaps with some colour in them, pink? orange?

  9. The giraffe sweater is great – I think it'd look great with a spotted red and white scarf tied around your neck. I like it with jeans.

  10. Really fantastic your blog. I look forward to future posts.

    Falling in love can be fun and adventurous and sometimes love can be confusing and challenging. Have you ever wondered if your love life is affected by something greater? Maybe your love life is not controlled by you at all.
