This weekend was really quiet, so quiet I was easily in bed by 10.30pm every night. Not that I am complaining, its nice to have relaxed weekends every once and awhile, one with no plans so you can have spontaneous brunch dates, long hot baths and tend to a guy with man flu. I did also enjoy a yummy Italian potluck dinner with friends on Saturday night to which I contributed a Nigella Nutella cake which was all sorts of out of control as you can imagine a whole jar of nutella and block of dark chocolate would be!

I bought this cardigan last weekend when I was at home from a local boutique, Iglou. They had a huge winter sale on so my timing was perfect. I have already worn the cardigan three times! I love the way it falls as it is gathered at the sides making it a really flattering fit. I also love the sparkles throughout it, they are hard to capture in photos but glimmer in certain light.

This is my last purchase for a little while, hopefully 10 weeks, as we are going to Melbourne for a wedding in September and I am going to try and save my pennies until then plus flights from Canberra to Melbourne are ridiculous, bring back Tiger I say. I currently have a love/hate relationship with my wardrobe so hopefully this  ban makes me utilise and re-purpose the things I already have and think about my purchases a little more in the future.

  3. Sparkly cardigans are the best. Very pretty outfit. Reminds me a little of the 90s… the good 90s! :)

  4. Love the skirt - where is it from? Would you be interested in some clothes swapping? I'm now a stay-at-home-Mum at have found that I really need to change up my wardrobe but don't have the cash... I'm thinking about bringing a group of people together to bring clothes they no longer want to swap for images that other people have...

    1. Hi Shari,

      That sound like a great idea! I would definitely be interested. I had a big clean out 6 weeks ago so might need some time to get a few things together!

      The skirt is from myer a few seasons ago :)

  7. What a lovely cardigan. Most folk skip on the sparkles in Summer which is a shame, I still think they look pretty in the sunlight.

    You look lovely.

  9. Love this outfit, you look great! Hopefully you can keep up with your shopping ban, because shopping in Melbourne is totally worth it.
