Thrift Inspiration,

Todays outfit post is inspired by two trends that are in style this season, leather cropped trousers and cardigans. This weeks Grazia shows their favourite picks of boyfriend style cardis:

Novembers issue of Vogue UK also has a feature on cardis and chunky knits, called 'This Old Thing?', very inspirational for pulling out your much love worn, years old cardigan and bringing it up to date for winter:

Vogues 'More Dash than Cash' feature also shows their favourite picks of leather cropped trousers:

My outfit consists of a black merino Italian wool cardi that I thrifted for £4 a couple of years ago at the boot sale and I'm wearing it with one of my Sunday boot sale finds, these brown leather cropped style trousers, which were only £1!!

As the trousers are vintage and high waisted, I've tucked my tee in 'Alexa' style (above)

I'm wearing my Jasper Conran wedge black leather courts to complete the ensemble.

I would say my favourite trends this season are leather, lace, chunky knits and boyfriend cardis, all of which I've managed to thrift for this coming season.

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

I really love this look, its kind of how Ive been feeling lately, very streamlined. I am in need of some new knits, Ive noticed a lot of vintage store have hiked up their prices I was looking at an aran knit in Cow and couldnt believe it was £40! It would have needed a good wash possibly dry clean too. Will be scouring ebay I think!

You look fab, I really like those cropped trousers! In late seventies/early eighties I used to wear an Aran Cardigan that my mum knitted, wish I was talented enough to knit my own!

I've been seeing a lot of leather shorts for some reason. I however, like your look the best. Not crazy about the leather shorts the pants are a better option and can easily transition with other pieces. Looking good as always!
