Wearing my heart on my sleeve...

Cheesy I know but is there a more apt title for an outfit post featuring this wonderful cardigan?! A long grey cardigan has long been a staple in my wardrobe, ever since I got this grey one as a 16th birthday present it barely left my body but unfortunately I lost it a while back (to this day I still don't know where!) and I have been searching for a replacement ever since...

Cardigan: ASOS, top: Hobbs, jeans: Topshop, boots: Dr. Martens

 Ever since I first got my hands on my first pair of Doc Martens, I have been unstoppable and I spied these boots in their sale. Funnily enough these boots are also replacing old favourites, my beloved Nine West biker boots (which I can't believe I have never blogged) as they have worn beyond repair :( They weren't cheap but I know they will last forever and I would rather spend my money on something that can actually withstand the winter weather! 


These are a gorgeous rough suede which feels really luxurious and makes these feel a bit less utilitarian, despit their practicality, definitely a win from me! 


I love the cardi, it is just the right thickness and the length is near perfect. I bought it a size down but it is still quite roomy so size down unless you like an oversized fit! I am also quite tempted by the jumper too, I may be taking another look on payday...


The elbow patches can't fail to put a smile on your face! 


Originally I put my boots on as it was really windy and rainy but they were just far too warm for the weirdly warm weather so I switched to some cute patterned socks and my trusty loafers instead. I'm not actually sure which version if the outfit I prefer, I usually avoid socks but I think I will be investing in some cute patterned ones for Autumn now I'm wearing jeans again!

Just to show off the bouncing soles, I really am in love!

What items in your wardrobe have been replaced time and time again? Do you prefer the boots or the loafers?
