She will never stop living in memory and certainly lives in my clothes.
Today I visited my nan’s grave at the cemetery, it felt strange. Almost like I was looking at a different name and felt sad for someone else. As the day went on, she become more and more part of my day.
I was inspired to do a style post today, its gloomy, wet and dull here in Wales and so my hopes of wearing a black dotty sundress went out the door. I went hunting for my black frilled top with flared sleeves, to go with my mom jeans – but as I walked into the spare room, (the room that is now mine and my mother’s wardrobe) I saw all of my nan’s old jumpers and cardigans.
Most of them are going to a lady who makes blankets and toys out of jumpers and cardigans. I chose an elephant toy (I’ve been thinking of an elephant toy especially for when I have children). I saw this red Sheer cardigan peeping out and thought how gorgeous. THE cardigan I have been searching for, thank you nan. Lovely fit, not too loose not too tight, and I love this chenille material, its like a soft velvet. Chic and relaxed its the best combination for my preferred style. The cardigan is from Marks and Spencer’s. For anyone who lives in the UK would know this is a quality and expensive cardi. I had to feature my nan’s gold coin necklace. Yes, authentic! I don’t need to be buying any replicas.
This red cardigan is not disappearing any time soon, I don’t have a choice in the rubbish weather we keep having but I love to layer my outfits, so this would be great wrapped round my waist or underneath a denim jacket and dotty sundress. Keep an eye out to see this next look! I’m very excited and feeling very emotional. I just love how she is still very much involved physically, the cardigan smells like her so much. The freaky part is as well, it was made in Thailand… coincidence. Fits like a glove and my mother is pretty jealous I found this beauty amongst the mountain of jumpers!
