The florals, the stripes, the gold

Screams the 70s, doesn’t it?

gold-rings

And that’s exactly when my dress was from.

striped-cardigan

It was one of my favourites long. But it was just too heavy to wear (all that polyester, you know).

Despite its stripey crocheted appearance, the sweater’s not vintage. I found it at Eden in Yaletown.

My boots? They’re Frye. And I will probably be wearing them until the 2070’s. That’s how much I love them.

    love your cardigan. lately I’ve been loving thick, chunky knitted grandpa-type sweaters and cardigans but it’s hard to find one that will fit my petite frame without swallowing me alive! great pattern mix with the florals and stripes. your leggings look cozy! Frye boots will def last you until 2070 and in that colour and style, it’s a classic.
