i won't just be a puppet on a string

SKIRT: h&m | VEST: cheap mondays | CARDIGAN: h&m | NECKLACE: Lady Luck Rules Ok (RIP)

You're going to get fed up seeing this cardigan but I honestly haven't been able to stop wearing it since buying it. Lily posted wearing the jumper version a few days ago and although I don't usually like wearing jumpers I'm tempted to go and see if my local H&M has it! I'm loving anything with elbow pads at the moment and hope to see more of them on the high street!

I've spent the day sorting out my clothes and photographing things to sell to make way for a new Summer wardrobe. I was supposed to be working this evening but my team leader gave me a call and asked me if I wanted to take the night off because I've still got quite a lot of annual leave to use up. YES PLEASE! I've made plans to go out for coffee and a catch up with a friend later on and I can't wait. It's really difficult to book annual leave at work (which is why I have so many hours left) so you have no idea how happy I am that they've actually offered it.

It's almost the weekend again, how did that happen? I think I'm having a girly night in with a friend on Saturday and we're having a Jason Stratham movie marathon which should be fun! What's everyones plans for the weekend? Anyone doing anything exciting?

Oh and I signed up for Tumblr again a few nights ago. Feel free to follow me leave your links as a comment and I'll follow back.


  1. I love that cardigan, I would be wearing it everyday too! It such a lovely colour.
    Im not doing anything all weekend and strangly looking forward to it! I'll probs just watch a few films with the boyfriend and eat lots of junk food!
    Mmmm I like a bit of Jason Stratham haha!

  2. Love it, I've never thought to wear an elbow patch item. I think it reminds me of howard moon in that ep of mighty boosh haha. But they look so cool xxx

  3. So cute. Love the skirt it looks great :)

  4. Adorable! I love the cardigan, so I don't blame you for never taking it of, hahaha. It's a gorgeous colour and looks wonderful on you!
    I've been meaning to get a tumblr... I just don't know what I'd do with it, you know? Hmm...

  5. Sophie - It doesn't help that it looks good with so many things I own! Someitimes those quiet weekends at home with the boy are my favourites - enjoy! :) x

    Gem - It reminds me of that too! x

  13. Ahhhh! I feel like this cardigan is taunting me. After seeing LLYMLRS in the jumper version I went into H&M today to have a look. My friend talked me out of buying the cardigan, even though I really love it and I come home to see this!

    I'm going to have to go back and get this cardigan. I absolutely adore it! You look beautiful :)

  30. Additionally, never help to make almost any blatant responses related to the woman race, such
    a because "I rarely like dark women, but they're alluring. Pauline on the other hand, chose an identity she could be content with; so she was somehow satisfied with her identity. The church wedding is wedding in the present of God.
