My Comfort Blanket

Thursday, August 18, 2011

Hey Girlies!

You know how babies and children sometimes have a comfort blanket? Something that they snuggle up to and feel warm and safe?! Well lately I have been finding that a Topshop cardigan has become my comfort blanket. We all certain items of clothing in our wardrobe which we put on when we're cold, or want to get comfy etc. My topshop cardigan has been the aide that I've been turning to lately. I got this cardi from Topshop in the month of May. I wasn't sure of it at first and even though it had been reduced from it's original price, I wasn't sure and even took the liberty of searching for the receipt to take it back. Luckily I couldn't find the receipt and it's been a staple in wardrobe ever since.

With the British 'summer' being ever so changeable, this cardi has been great for keeping me warm and also being really comfy. The outfit below is what I've been rocking quite alot lately, and it is fact what I wore to go see The Inbetweeners film last night (go see it's hilarious!) I think I will definitely be taking this cardi with me to the airport on Sunday!

Cardi: Topshop
Top: Topshop
Shorts: Topshop
Shoes: Primark 

I'm wearing my new Illasmaqua blush Lover in these pictures too...

Have you got an item in your wardrobe that is a staple for you?

Okay I think this will be my last post for a couple of weeks now, I'm off back home tonight for the weekend before we jet off to Crete on Sunday morning. I've decided against taking my laptop back as I doubt I'll have time to do a blog post. I hope you all have a great couple of weeks :) I'll still be on twitter this weekend though @dizzybrunette3 :)
