I love cardigans, long or short. At what length you choose to wear your cardigans will depend on your height. Personally, I like my cardigans to cover my bum and stomach area.
Cardigans make great in-between season additions to our wardrobes. They are extremely versatile and practical. I bought this silver grey cardigan recently from the new John Lewis & partners range. It is 100% cashmere and I consider a reasonable price considering the softness and quality. I recently included it in my Capsule wardrobe for France. It rolls up into a small ball for packing and has been a useful piece to wear here in France in the evenings; when the sun goes down and the temperature drops.
I have teamed it with my new burgundy trousers also from John Lewis & partners. The burgundy seems to have sold out, however, they still have stock left in navy and black. They are meant to be ankle grazers, however, I let the hem down on these ones as I have quite long legs and prefer them to cover my ankles.
My burgundy trainers are from Lands’ End. I bought them last year; however, they still have them in stock and they are reduced from £65 to £32. They are very comfortable and a little lighter than conventional trainers.
I bought the scarf I am wearing from St.Tropez market last year. I am currently down in the south of France and am trawling the market to see if I can source something similar. Many of you leave comments or email me asking where I purchased my scarves and jewellery. So we have a plan to open an online shop connected to the blog. This means that we will be able to offer you a range of scarves and jewellery personally selected by me.
We are in the process of developing the site and will let you know as soon as it is ready.
