New cardigan and gold postbox

gold postbox

This photo is from a while ago. I really wanted to get a picture with one of Chris Hoy’s two gold postboxes before they paint them red again. I’m wearing the cardigan that was the third thing I got from Beacon’s Closet in New York. We were going to the rugby and it’s always freezing in the stadium, even when it’s full (which it wasn’t), so I was wearing wooly socks and not very nice looking waterproof shoes. It’s also one of the last times I wore those non-maternity jeans. I could still get them closed when I last tried them, but they were getting pretty uncomfortable, so I’ve added them to the ever increasing pile of clothes that will have to wait til after le bebe is born.

Happy weekend all!

Outfit stats:
* cardigan – beacon’s closet * dress – mango * jeans – h&m * shoes – come outdoor brand * brooches – one’s from a swap, the other one I made *

    I made a beeline for that postbox when I was in Edinburgh! It was chucking it down when I took my photo though so I’m sporting a massive brolly.

    That cardi is amazing – so bright and cheerful 🙂

    You know I’ve seen both postboxes in Leeds, I even go past one everyday but I haven’t had my photo taken with it…

    I love your cardi and sensible warm clothes are always a win in my eyes, I’ve been living in my wellibobs for the past few weeks lol

    I love looking through the goodies on the Beacon’s Closet website, you’re so lucky to have visited a store in NY – the cardi is absolutely gorgeous:).

    Oh, ich dachte die Briefkästen würden für immer golden bleiben. Na dann kann ich ja wirklich stolz sein dass ich in London einen gefunden habe mit dem ich mich fotografiert habe.

      Eine Weile werden sie noch bleiben, aber die werden eben immer regelmaessig gestrichen wenn Grafitti drauf ist oder die Farbe sich abschaelt, und wenn es naechstes mal soweit ist, wirds wieder rot.

    I’m sad that Liverpool never got a gold postbox 🙁 I think the closest was Chester or Manchester. Love the little yellow button brooch too, is that one you made?

      Yeah, that’s the one!
