Sweater Inspiration

The weather has been freakishly warm the last few days. I love spring weather, but it's been more like summer around here. I don't have many lighter clothes with me so I'm running out of things to wear! It makes me sad to not be able to wear my sweaters at the moment. I LOVE sweaters. They are easy to wear and super comfy. I keep hoping the weather will get cooler again. Until then, here is some 1940's sweater inspiration from one of my knitting booklets.











I did cheat a bit and wear a short sleeved sweater today. It was more of an excuse to have something to pin my newest brooch to, as it was far to warm to wear it. This is the pin I won in a giveaway from Subversive Femme. Isn't it cute? I just quickly snapped these photos so you can't really make of the details, but it's my new favourite brooch. 
Please ignore the one mismatched button. The dress is vintage and this was done by a previous owner.


That's All.

  2. I'm with Miss Tallulah on this one! I'd love to own each one of those sweaters.
    It's been so warm for spring and I really don't know if I should swap my wardrobes over yet. I keep thinking that if I get my summer clothes out it will get cold again. I don't want to tempt fate!
    Also I think the miss match button looks cute and I'm loving the stripe on your dress - so cute!
