Lady Luck Cream

As usual I have a whole load of work to do for Uni but needing a little break so thought I'd come do some blogging. 

Looking around the shops recently I have noticed an influx of cable knit and soft spring colours; cream, pastel pink, muted teals and cool beige. I rarely buy knits as they make me look chunky/like a Michelin man as I'm short and quite curvy but I found some lovely little sweaters in H&M with cable knit fronts but plain backs and was so chuffed! They're clearly popular as every size but S & XS were sold out. I snatched up two slightly different ones in cream with a Chapelfield (our regions big clothes shopping mall) voucher I had. 

I love the detail of these, it has a lovely nostalgic feeling, after years of wearing knitted sweaters in my childhood. I've collected some images for inspiration from Tumblr (all sources linked). A few of these look like the sweaters I have actually hehe!
