CABLE KNIT DIARIES

Hello again,

We all have our one winter staple. For some, it may be a favourite winter coat, a cardigan, a pair of boots… It’s most definitely a comfort thing. If there’s anything better than feeling ultimate cosiness, it’s feeling on trend at the same time. For me, it’s most definitely a fail-safe cable knit jumper. And if it’s vintage, then that’s even better…

I picked this beautiful piece of knitwear up at a local vintage shop for five whole pounds. There’s something about well-loved, retro items that appeal much more to me; when I originally started this blog, it was to document all of my second hand findings. Along the way, I have unexpectedly indulged in more high street garments and combined them with the vintage assets from my overflowing wardrobe, to create perhaps ‘modern vintage’ attires. An oxymoron-situation I am much in favour of – Admittedly, my love for vintage and second hand items heightened due to the fact I was unemployed for a short while; so what’s a girl who adores clothes to do? Raid through charity shops, of course. Following employment, the freedom to experiment more with slightly more expensive items along with my favoured thrift items came along, and I seized the opportunity with all of my might… Just because I now have a regular income doesn’t mean I will suddenly shy away from a good second-hand treasure hunt!

A perfect example is the attire that I am sporting here – with perhaps an accidental school-girl vibe to it! One of my favourite pieces this autumn and winter is most definitely this beautiful asymmetric wrap skirt from Zara. I teamed it up with one of my favourite vintage items to demonstrate just how versatile a classic cable knit jumper can be… Combine with jeans, short skirts, long skirts, you name it… The freedom is in your hands.

With the temperature rapidly dropping the closer we get to Christmas, the more I rely on this fool proof knitted number of mine!


 

So that’s a wrap…

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading into one of my winter staples this year!

Until next time,
