It’s cardigan season! Styling a khaki linen dress with a waterfall cardigan

Styling a lagenlook outfit

This black waterfall cardigan was a charity shop find, and I love it! Not all waterfall cardigans are made equal – I like the shape of them, but some have too much fabric around the back of the neck, and some don’t have enough fabric at the front (do you balance the waterfall bit on top of your boobs, or let it fall to the side of your boobs?), but this one, originally from Marks and Spencer is perfect!….

And I do love a good cardigan and I don’t care how old that makes me! I feel they’re pretty much essential for this time of year because one minute you’re baking hot in the sunshine, and the next minute the clouds come over and it’s freezing! A cardigan can quickly be slipped on and off without any trouble, and some (although not this one) are small enough to scrunch into your bag. Perfect.

Layering a cardigan and linen dress

On this occasion I’m wearing the cardigan over a khaki sleeveless linen dress from Zanzea Collection. It’s a really comfortable shape without being too sack-like and and gives the outfit a lagenlook style. The length is ideal for spring – I’m not ready to get my legs completely out yet, but on a warm day it’s nice to finally swap my leggings to bare legs under my dresses! I also love the way the dipped hem of the dress is echoed by the uneven hem of the cardigan so they go really well together.

Over 40 fashion blogger and seaside graffiti

I styled the lagenlook outfit with woolly ankle socks and chunky trainer-style leather shoes from The Art Company. They’re quite a bright orange-brown and give the outfit a pop of colour whilst still blending in with the neutral tones.

The fabric of this cardigan is a polyamide, viscose, cotton and angora blend. It’s beautifully soft, warm and has washed well with only a little bobbling under the arms.

A bohemian layered necklace

I wore the outfit with a layered silver necklace with beads of peach and soft white, and gives it more of a bohemian vibe. This was also a charity shop buy, and I’m afraid I can’t tell you where it was originally from. I don’t usually go for heavier jewellery, but I really like this necklace and now I’m on the look-out for similar in other colours.

By the way, we took these photos at Watchet, a lovely harbour village in Somerset with some cute little shops – definitely worth a visit.

The summer evening jacket. A handmade pixie hem hippy-style coat

I have to admit, although we recently took the photos for this jacket; spring is actually a very difficult season to wear it due to its lack of waterproof-ness and the inclination in England for it to suddenly rain two minutes after the sun is blazing! So that’s why I entitled this as being ideal for summer evenings. It would also be great festival fashion as the pixie hem and unusual woven fabric gives it quite hippy vibes, whilst also being warm when the sun goes down, and perfect for sitting with friends around the bonfire after a night of dancing….

I am often at my happiest when Chris, (and in the past when they were smaller, the kids as well) and I go off on a road-trip in the camper. We’ve had a few vans over the years, changing the size of them to suit our family, and now that Rain and Jude have had enough of the cramped sleeping conditions and the dog snoring in their ears, we downsized to a Type 25 VW camper van a couple of years ago for just the two of us. When I’m gathering the clothes to take with me on these trips, I tend to choose the more bohemian items from my wardrobe.  Apart from at Wilderness festival, can you think of a more fitting time to wear clothes like this dress? With its flowing fabric and button-up style, this maxi dress has a gorgeous print inspired by far-flung lands and evokes a feeling of summer travels….

This time last year Chris and I had our first campervan trip of the season to Cornwall, and it turned out to be a lot warmer than we expected! I feel that at the moment we’re in that hit or miss time – completely unpredictable – often looking warm and sunny, but then you find there’s a freezing cold wind, which stops at 2pm and then it becomes quite hot! Anyway, the black dress I’m styling for this blog post is ideal for now – as long as you have a cardigan handy!…
Joe Browns favourites from the new catalogue
October 16, 2016
The latest Joe Browns catalogue popped through my letterbox yesterday and I was excited to see their latest clothing for sale. By the way, this post isn’t sponsored or paid for by Joe Browns, I’m just a big fan of their clothes – they have quirky unusual styles that are very wearable and more than any other brand, my wardrobe is filled with items from this catalogue. If you like brightly coloured prints, then this is definitely the company for you, but if you’re more like me and prefer plain or subtle designs, then there is still plenty to choose from. Here are some of my favourites…..
