Winter Days with Vintage Cardigan Style.....

The nights are getting colder here and slowly the days are following. I'm loving it and the weather here on the Gold Coast has been sensational to say the least lately. When it comes to the cooler months I'm always excited to g bust out considerable collection of vintage, thrifted and nanna cardigans and pullovers.


Wearing ::
It's a nice a relax snugly outfit, one I'm happy to wear all day, and it's good thing comfy because tonight I have one of my oldest and best friends coming for dinner tonight. He is a qualified chef among many other talents and skills he possess and I'm attempting a new dish that Ben and I had recently. I'm taking the big risk of tweaking with the dish a bit, but I am hopeful. Ben seems confident with my suggested tweaks, so fingers crossed I pull it off. If it goes to pits I'll have Shannon and I out for a coffee and dessert once we have the kids in bed and Ben can hold down the fort.

Cardie?! You're singing my song!! My FAVE things in the world;I always-well,nearly-wear a cardie!!! Love yours,and that necklace is FABBO!
I'm having band practice tonight,but it's freakin' COLD and I'd really rather snuggle with the cats and a good book or movie!
Have a great time tonight,and y'know,the best thing about chef's is that they usually never get cooked for and they love it when someone does!Do share what you cook and what you wear!XXX

I love this outfit. The cardi looks great. We're just having a quiet night in with bland food for Mr P after his tummy troubles. Hope your meal tastes amazing! Xx

Yes, I like a cardi too! That one is a particularly great colour, and i love all the accessories.
I'm sure your dinner will be gorgeous, a friend would never be critical of what you cook, regardless of whether they're a chef or not!
My OH is out tonight, so I am in with the kids, and packing all my vintage finery ready for the fair tomorrow. I'm excited! xxx
