crochet & stripes




dress & cardigan - topshop, boots & hat - asos

snagged this cardigan in the topshop sale. i wasn't immediately sold on it, i'm not really a pink kind of girl, but this is a nice dusky pink and this is my way of doing crochet without displaying my arse/boobs to everyone. decided to wear it with one on my favourite dresses, this dress brings my love of stripes to a whole new level - despite it making me look kinda pregnant?!

despite not being a fan of dressing in summer, i have to say the more outfits i put together for the warmer weather the easier i find it. the english weather really doesn't help though; one minute it's windy, cold and tights weather, the next it's warm, legs and no layers weather.

  1. I'm all for this colour pink too, nothing too bright. It hadn't thought of combining it with stripes though, good idea!

  2. I love how plain the dress is- unusually simple for topshop. You definitely don't look pregnant in it!
