A : That's going to be MASSIVE on you!
Me : Nooo! it will be fine.
A : I tell you, it's going to be massive.
Me : Trust me, I think it will be alright.
Thirty seconds later.
Me : What do you think?
A : But it looked huge on the hanger! How come it doesn't look huge on you on! I like it! It's good! Buy it!
To be honest. It did look huge on the hanger so A had a point. I saw it earlier in the week and picked up the size small, tried it on and decided the pockets weren't particularly good on that one so I put it back. This time round, there was no size small and only one size medium. The pockets were straight and even, I tried it and it was good. Bought it.
It wasn't all luck you know. I knew that cardigan rang a bell with me - I'd spotted something similar before :
That's Mija Flatau in her Acne Raya cardigan.
I'm not daft. A cardi with shades of the Acne Raya cardigan about it at a fraction of the price. Done deal. And it's perfect for the school run with blue jeans ....
Primark Cardigan (instore), J Crew Linen Tee (old but similar here), New Look Jeans (old), Converse
or with black. Especially with a bit of Olsen big scarf inspiration.
Primark Cardigan, H&M Mens Scarf (old but similar here), H&M Distressed Jeans similar here, Next Skate Pumps (old but similar here)
My cardi is from Primark and cost me the princely sum of £14. And I'm pretty happy with it. Its quite warm and could double up as a light coat quite easily. I bought myself a chunky grey cardi from there last year and I'm still wearing it this year - it seems to have gone the distance and not ended up as cat bedding which I said it might. So I have high hopes for this.
So two scores from Primark this season ... a camel coat and a camel cardigan. I wonder what's next?
I spotted these which also look good :
I thought a camel shade would make a nice change from grey. Go me (mime fist bump)!
