Heathcliff - it's me, oh Cathy















There was only one thing that sprang to mind when viewing these pictures: Wind + rolling countryside + long billowing skirt = Wuthering Heights, what else...?

I love flowy romantic looks and I've been wanting to wear this (very dressy) skirt in the autumn with a sweater and brogues for ages now, and it's finally chilly enough to do so. I bought the sweater (Tesco again, hooray for supermarket clothes!) a couple of sizes too big because my size was quite short and fitted but I wanted to pull it in with a belt - I don't think a slim fit would have had quite the same effect. The desire to pile on everything in nude and neutral shades was overwhelming; this was quite hurriedly put together but I think Emily Brontë would have been proud ;)

Sweater: F+F
Skirt: New Look
Belt: Asos
Brogues: New Look (changed the laces with ones bought off eBay)
Leopard scarf: Asos
Necklace: Coast
Nude cuff: Asos
Ring: Topshop (currently only available instore - this matches the brooch I wore here)
Nails: Models Own Concrete Mixer

  2. I love the pictures they remind me of the photoshoots done on the Irish Moores or Scottish Highlands done for classy knitting magazines & I'm not talking about the cheap Lion Brand stuff... This has got to be straight out of Vogue Knitting. I love cable knit sweaters!
