Wear your love like it is made of hate

Jumper: Primark
Dress (worn as top): New Look
Shorts: New Look Kids
Locket: 18th Birthday Present

I was so pleased when I went into Primark on Friday and found this jumper for just £10! It's a lot like the Topshop one that I featured in my last post. It also comes in red and cream but I thought I'd get a lot more wear out of this light brown colour. I'm usually a size 8 but I wanted it to be a bit baggy and, knowing me, I thought I'd probably shrink it in the wash so I got a size 10. When I got home it wasn't as baggy as I'd hoped it would be so I exchanged it for a size 12!

Today, I decided to wear my leopard print collar dress underneath and just let the collar pop out. I can see myself wearing this sort of outfit a lot over the Autumn/Winter. It's so warm and cosy.. in fact, I was a bit too warm when I was in town! I should probably put this jumper away for a couple of weeks until it really starts to get chilly. I haven't really done much today. I just popped into town to get a couple of bits and I've made some cappuccino cupcakes. They're just cooling down and then I'm going to attempt to ice them using my new Poundland icing bag. Hopefully I'll be posting the recipe later on this week - if they turn out alright!

Some of you may already know from my posts on Twitter but I bought my blog a domain! I am now the proud owner of www.strangenessandcharm.co.uk ! I wanted a .com but it was already taken,but on the bright side, .co.uks cost less!

I hope everyone's enjoying the bank holiday. What have you all been up to?

  3. I went to Primark yesterday and could have bought the whole shop! There was a fantastic aztec style cardigan in there that looked just like the topshop ones for £15. Sadly other people obvs thought it was a bargain as there was only one size 22 left. Sigh.

    Love how you've put the dress under your jumper though, the leopard collar makes it look really different :)
