Morning Sunshine and Grandma's Cardi.

Knowing that you have to get up and go into work in the early hours of the morning can be pretty tough. Especially when you know your day consists of waiting at fitting rooms, finding shoes and tapping on the tempermental tills all day long. It's not all bad though, the staff are lovely and it's nice to arrive at a completely silent and empty shopping mall. The Selfridges building has never looked more appealing in all its scaly glory. The Neo Gothic church that is St Martins, who has found itself in the midst of an area which has been complelety regenerated, stands proudly, sihouetted in the morning sunshine. It's actually quite nice!

I have been quite busy the past few days and so my day off today was much appreciated. My computer was at the evil clutches of a virus and I despaired of not being able to use it for days. Luckily I got rid of it but unfortunately the cost was to reboot my computer to it's factory settings. So my laptop now believes it to be 2005 and is brand spanking new again. It made me realise just how much I use my computer!, it's definitely a love hate relationship!

I'm wearing...
Cardigan (It was my grandmas)
Belt (New Look)
Jeans (H&M)
Necklace (Miss Selfridge)
Shoes (Barrats)

Sorry about the lighting, I must remember to take photos in the daytime! It is getting so dark again already and the recent wind and rain that we've been having assures me that Autumn/Winter has definitely arrived. I really like the cable knit cardigan that was given to me by my grandma when I was in HK. It's so comfy and warm (like a big hug!) and of course reminds me of my grandma. It's always that much nicer when your grandpa (or in my case grandma) cardigan is the genuine thing! I have been considering taking the toggle buttons off but I don't want to attack it yet! Hmmm....


  1. I like the way you belted your cardigan. Work can be such a nuisance...always getting in the way of life.

  2. Ooooh my, that cardigan looks lovely I could most definately do with something warm and cosy like that in this weather. It's crazy how cold and dark it is already

  3. never knew grandma's cardigan can be so the necklace too...Thanks for stopping by dear...hope to hear from you again.
    That building sure looks very futuristic indeed. Your city is so fab!

  4. This is such a cool necklace!

  5. The 1st installment of boots will be online tomorrow! :) Thanks for the comment, isn't fall wear the best? I love your shoes against the dark denim and fun top.

  6. Thank you :)
    Yeah, totally understand. And Barcelona is really a wonderful city!

  7. Hi there-fantastic photos and I love grandmas cardi! i would leave the buttons as they are!!

  8. I'd be happy if it was 2005...I say no to removing the toggles, it's got a cool vibe to it - like your off to the manor born. The silence of Bull Ring before the great unwashed masses come storming in...not something that I ever saw.

  9. Ohyes,I couldnt bring myself to get out of bed when I realised I will have 4 hours of finance lecture/tutorial STRAIGHT. Grrr

  10. i have a love hate relationship with my computer too. more love than hate.

  11. Fantastic Cardigan! LOVE!!!!!!

  13. I adore the belt!
    Thanks for lovely comment;)

  14. Trying to take outfit photos in winter is a *pain*! You look awesome, tho!

  15. That thing about your computer sucks! I don't wanna think how I'd feel if that happened to me.
    And that landscape looks gorgeous, lucky you!


  16. I hate getting up for work, it's a challenge ever day. I went years working retail it's even worse when you know your going to be on your feet all day.
