Muted Magic.

Just having a casual, candid (NOT) saunter past Dior, you know, as you do! It was a quiet Monday morning in Covent Garden and I had gone to meet Gemma for some much anticipated warming breakfast at 26 Grains (Scandinavian bowls of healthy stuff).  It was a very fresh morning and all I wanted was to be lazy, cosy and most importantly covered up. Did not fancy a draft going up anywhere thank you very much. I've been wearing this chunky knitted cardi for days on end in my flat whilst I've been busy in hibernation mode, but thought maybe I should actually wear it outside instead of treating it like a dressing gown. That's a bad habit I have. I end up falling asleep in far too many of my clothes and then before I know it they become 'indoor' wear. Well not today, not this cardigan. It's now been fully integrated into society. 

For me cardigans can be on the boring side and a little frump but this one I felt this didn't apply too. I love it's western woolly tassels so that I could play cosy cowgirl! As for the rest of this outfit, leather black thigh high boots are my savour. They are my answer to leaving the house from the months of November right through until March give or take. They give me my stealth assassin vibe for when I want to go undetected, that's pretty much all the time during the cold winter months. Underneath I've been intentionally simple. There's nothing like a muted long line sweatshirt, it's a great foundation piece that's very easy to build on. I was especially taken with it's lovely dusty blue tone, and knew it would be an easy one to blend in to my wardrobe.
