Navy and Gold


I'm very happy today! I passed my driving theory test last night, and then this morning had my french oral exam. It went a lot better than I thought it would! Which is a big relief, because I was so nervous beforehand. I listened to a bit of Edith Piaf when I was getting dressed to get me into the french mood!

I was feeling a bit nautical today. The cardigan is a men's one from primark, but I replaced the original buttons with these amazing gold ones! I found them at the bottom of my button tin. The bag is a recent charity shop find!



Oh, and I've just started knitting a scarf (I know its nearly summer haha). It's about 1m20cm long at the moment. Its mainly pink (that seems to be the only colour wool we own) but with bits of white, cream, yellow and blue mixed in. I'm going to say that its my own take on those amazing knits by 'Rodarte' - although I'm not quite good enough to make the holes look intentional...

Love the outfit, especially the buttons! I've been thinkig about replacing the buttons of some things from H&M as well - it can completely change an item
