Knit Necessity.

29 October 2011

Around this time of year I like to take every chance to cozy up in a chunky knit. I have plenty of non-knitted warm clothes but after a sweltering summer it's nice to fully indulge in Autumns true arrival. For me that means knitwear. Today I slung on a cream knitted cardigan for a comfy trip out to the shops.

Cardigan - F21. Floral top - H&M. Handbag - B.D.Y. 
Hairband - Rosabella. Bracelet - Vintage from Monet.

I went on a very different kind of Saturday shopping trip, I decided it was time to pick up a better camera. I've been wanting a good DSLR for a really long time but hadn't bought one because, quite honestly, more beautiful things had taken (yes, they took it from me, I had no choice) my money. Now I'm blogging I thought it was time to make the commitment. I got a Nikon D5100. It's only a mid level Nikon but it still cost me more than my usual Saturday shopping trips ever do! I'm trying to look at it as an investment though rather than what keeps crossing my mind; it's a big black object that's a lot less pretty but just about as expensive as the Miu Miu handbag I've been dying to get but still haven't.

When I got home I spoke to one of my best friends from home who is heading out for her birthday celebrations tonight and of course for Halloween. If I was in England now I'd carve a pumpkin (which they don't even sell in the shops here, can you believe?!) and after I'd get dressed up for cocktails and dancing tonight. Instead I'm off to bake some oatmeal and raisin cookies,they never fail to cheer me up. Not sure what I'll be doing tonight.

I hope you all have a fun {and safe} Halloween night out whatever you choose to do! xxx

  11. Thanks for stopping by and leaving lovely comments ladies!

    I do love this knit and the bright color of the purse, so I'm glad you guys agree!

    @Gentri ~ The sweater is sadly not in the stores now, I'm sorry! But if it makes you feel better I did see something quite similar in there this weekend, same length, color and a cable knit design on it.

    @ Essjay23x I'd definitely recommend getting a new camera. I took some shots with mine this weekend (will be putting them up soon) and I'm really glad I made the investment now!
