Listening to - PJ Harvey - on Battleship Hill

I am finally doing my seasonal 360 where I want to wear dark grungy colours in winter and soft off colours in Spring. Since it's not really warm yet I am making do with the colour combination of mint + red, which are surprisingly good together. As evidenced by this lady. I got both the shirt and the cardigan at a super awesome jumble sale a couple of weeks ago. It was more expensive than ususal - some items were £2! (To me this is a lot for a jumble sale but cheap compared to many charity shops so all is well) There was a funny old lady there who kept throwing any 'young looking' things in my direction and asking if I'd like them. Amongst them was this cardigan. I recognized the brand TSE, who do 100% cashmere cardigans so happily snapped it up for 50p. I also found a beautiful 1930s crepe blouse which I will have to wear soon. I need to document my outfits more often now it's light, and take more pictures generally. For example I was at a party dressed as Patti Smith and have no photographic evidence, need to work on that.
Also Let England Shake by PJ Harvey is amazing, have been listening to it constantly.


  1. I have been having a bit of an obsession about the colour mint! And can't wait for spring to come and actually start wearing pastels more often.
    You look really good in mint and red! And how amazing is Uniqlo???
    Also, please do show more outfits here, I would love to see them more often,

  2. Your red cardigan is so beautiful. It's a lovely color on you.
