This cardigan is the most delightfully awkward item of clothing I own. I love the shape, the fit and the pattern but what in god's name do I wear it with!? In all honesty I actually just throw it over anything. 
Its a funny colour too, not quite black, not quite grey and not quite brown. It might be safer to just wear it over an all black ensemble and have done with it. But it seems today I was matching my outfit to my nails.

This leopard print design is everywhere. Everyone has their own take on it, and it seems to work well with any two colours. I think I still like the original shades the best but I was inspired to try this bright version after seeing the bandwagon pass by. If you're still in the dark about how its done you can follow my tutorial.

My whole household popped down to our local pub quiz last night - we came 3rd but I was quite pleased with our efforts as newbies. Tonight, just a quiet one. I'm making a carrot cake with my sister (I'll try and post evidence on Twitter) and perhaps catching up on Great British Bake Off.




  1. This is a really cute outfit! Loving Primark's knitwear at the moment too, but i'm not loving the awkward in-between temperamental weather we're having at the moment :/
