Cosy cable knit

As I have been bitten by the thrifting bug, I had a mooch through the charity shops and managed to pick up a lovely cosy jumper from Toast. It is perfect for me as I get very warm, whatever the weather, so its short sleeves are practical and chic! :) I layered it up with my H&M  bodycon skirt which (hopefully) made it more flattering. 


I bought my tights from Primark a while ago, thinking they were black but I actually think the grey is more flattering and easier to mix and match. 



Handily, they also matched my belt which I used to pull in my waist. Again to help with the potential frump factor! 






I really loved how the mix of patterns worked together to make a really cosy and comfy outfit that was perfect for the rainy weather outside.






I am finding it difficult to incorporate my glasses into my daily routine, mainly because I forget that I have to wear them all the time (oops!)




The only way this outfit could be made better (in my humble opinion!) is with the addition fo a perfectly fitting vintage wool coat...




Ta-da! I finally got this coat dry-cleaned! I bought this when Danni and I went Yummy Hair spotting at Vintage at Goodwood with Aussie and haven't been able to wear it until now.




What's your favourite comfy outfit? Have you ever mixed patterns?

Sally- Thank you! It was a bargain £4.99 too :)

Leia- Thank you :) Comfy and practical! I need to sew a button onto the coat though, I think dry cleaning loosened them :(
