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.

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.

Independent Fashion Focus – an alternative to Bristol Fashion Week
October 11, 2016
Every single thing I go to lately seems to have the advertised start time about three-quarters of an hour before it actually starts. It’s as if they know I’m coming and in anticipation of my lateness, give the wrong time. The problem is, I have been dead on time for a change! So; not having the courage to speak to strangers already chatting to each other, after spending as long as I politely could browsing the clothes rails at To The Moon, I walked up and down the road for while and moved my car to a less dodgy parking space until the first person was due to speak, according to the piece of paper sellotaped to the wall. I perched on a stool at the back of the room with my notebook at the ready, interested to hear what they had to say about ethical and sustainable fashion….

How to style a floral shirt dress; perfect spring fashion
May 29, 2018
I don’t know about you, but as we marched into April I had so had enough of winter! I was desperate to move away from my dark coloured winter wardrobe and wear some florals. I only went in Primark to buy a cheap skin-coloured bra as we were away in the camper and I’d forgotten to pack one! But on my way to the till I spotted this floral shirt dress that I just picked up (along with a mustard dress, coming to the style inspo section on the blog soon!) and took it with me….
