His 'Biscuit Cardigan'



Apologies for the lack of outfit posts as of late, I have been clad in jogging bottoms and ridiculously bright t-shirts as of late due to poor health.

However, today I decided to don something a little more post worthy. Oh, I baked some coconut biscuits this morning and I am steadily munching away as I type. That is a somewhat random piece of information about my day today I though I would share with you, but the biscuits are seriously nice.

My brother calls this my 'biscuit cardigan', which I can only assume is due to its delightful colour. I was particularly attracted to the buttons, which are an extremely pale brown and nicely chunky. Fabric wise the cardigan is actually made from thinly knit 'premium' wool. I am not entirely sure what makes the wool premium, however I would like to think the sheep had a good shampoo and conditioning routine going before they got shaved of all their hard work and glorious effort for my clothing pleasure. It is not too obvious, but I am wearing a collared jersey top underneath, with a woven brown and black scarf wrapped around my neck. For me this is more comfort wear than anything else, but even so, that is no reason to slack on style!

Special thanks to the wonderfully stylish Fashion Is Poison for tagging me for another Premio Award, I would highly recommend you to check her blog out.

Oh and come back tomorrow, when I shall hopefully have a video post up for you delightful people...provided I can work out all the technologies involved.

  1. Love the color. Cool scarf too.

    I wish I could watch fresh episodes of Hollyoaks. It would be great to watch the whole mental health problem with Newt. I have been let down as of late with all the drugs in the village, however, and to have Josh mixed up with Michalla...I didn't like that at all..but oh well, I guess thats why I write.

    Hope you are on the mend and have a weekend out and about.

  8. the biscuits sound great, i'm such a sucker for home-baking! i love spending a while in the kitchen and waiting for hot, fresh, tasty results! (i sound like a housewife, it's terrifying but true!)
    i understand your frustrations at having spent so long in clothing that excites nobody, not even oneself: i recently had to stay home for two weeks due to illness, and adorned myself in similar garb. it's so good to be better again, and have good chances to dress like a human being! lovely cardigan and scarf combination, simple but effective.

  10. Ha-ha, the image of sheep being shampooed and conditioned is now forever ingrained in my mind whenever I read "premium wool." The cardigan is very nice.

  11. I love, love, love your cardigan. Perfect mesh of two perfect colors! Who is it by? And great with the scarf. By the way (sort of off topic) but I know you appreciate hip hop.. just saw "Step Up 2 The Streets on DVD last night. That film is sick, I love the way they dance. Makes me wanna get up and do it too. Especially the end sequence. The video is on my blog if you want to check it out (and haven't already) it's on the side bar, almost all the way down. ;) PS: Thanks for your comment ^_^

  31. Aww, those buttons look like honeycomb cereal to me!:) But i love the pairing of different patterns and the light vs dark contrast going on with the cardigan and scarf.

  32. love those colours, something about pairing aqua with a normally dull colour like biscuit or grey will always appeal to me

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hmmm...more tea-coloured than biscuit for me...both good things though...

    ReplyDelete
  34. Love the colors, aqua with neutrals looks amazing. The buttons are interesting, too.
