When I buy new clothes, I'm not one of these people who can't wait to wear them. In fact I'm the complete opposite. I lovingly hang them in my wardrobe, with all the labels still attached, until an occasion worthy enough of my beautiful new outfit comes along.
This cardigan was no exception. I tried it on with the white top underneath, and everything about ti was perfect. I had no intention of buying the white top, but it was almost as if they had to be together. Then I had to wait and wait, but no event was coming up. In the end I wore it to work! To work! I just couldn't wait to wear it any longer.
There's something about this outfit, that seems ever so slight 'grown-up casual' to me. It's smart, yet dressed down all at the same time. This is currently my go-to outfit. For date nights, casual meals out, trips to the cinema, shopping trips with a friend, quiet drinks in the local, and yes, ever so occasionally, days at the office. But it pulls off all of these occasions.
I do believe I have a slight obsession with New Look, considering this is the first of two outfits, featuring items from New Look, I intend to show on here. In fact, this doesn't even begin to show case my slight obsession lately!
