Blue Splashes

I have been really struggling to find little cardigans this summer.  All I want is a waist length, 3/4 sleeve cardigan in a rainbow of colours, surely this isn't too much to ask?!  I picked this one up from New Look and it is exactly what I am looking for but doesn't come in very many colours, boooo!  If you have seen any (the H&M ones are too long) please let me know.  I would love a new orange one, a lime one and a red one.  I have won a yellow one on eBay so hopefully that's sorted.  I hate getting my arms out and actually fine I am cooler in a cardigan than I am with bare arms - my bare arms in the sun heat up quickly whereas they are kept protected and cool in a cardigan.  God bless the cardigan!  Didn't realise I could write so much on the humble cardigan...





Dress: Boohoo*
Cardigan: New Look

I was drawn to the dress by the pattern of the fabric and the splashes of blue.  I opted for my new New Look cardi and my favourite converse which are not that white anymore.  I am getting used to wearing dresses with bare legs (or sexy flesh colour tights!) though I cannot wait to be back in my black opaques.  Such a comfort blanket and mean I am comfortable raising my hemline a good few inches.  This summer has been the summer of a few firsts for me, cracking out my legs and dropping my hem line to the knee - both of which I was horrified by and thought they wouldn't suit me.  I think I can pull knee length off without looking frumpy but nothing longer.  Would still love to be able to pull a midi dress off like Sophie can!  Even with a pair of skyscraper court shoes I still feel too short and dumpy to wear midi!

  3. Tesco actually have some nice cardigans! I got a bright orange one this week for a tenner! Long sleeves though but have some other styles with 3/4 lengths :). Hope this helps.

  6. Yay for the humble cardy! They have saved me from many what-to-wear dilemmas. This dress is rather intriguing too, I'm loving dresses this summer, normally I hide out in maxi skirts.

  8. They have cardigans like those in Debenhams (or at least they do in the one by me) if that helps? I was with my Stepmum when she picked one up for my sister's wedding last month. Think they had quite a few colours too :)
