Full of Heart

     Continuing the theme of my last outfit post (in which I wore a color I never like or wear), yesterday at work I wore a pattern that I never wear: hearts. I don't like heart prints, usually, but this piece from Topshop totally won me over. It could be the red white and blue color scheme, which is one of my favorites, or it could be the cute and useful little pocket, or the sleek and somewhat 1950s fit of the thick and tight weave. Whatever the reason, I just had to have it.

Heart print cardigan (Topshop), grey pencil skirt (H&M)

     Loved this outfit, it kept me in a fun and cheerful mood despite the humid rainy weather and the long boring day at work. The only complaint I have is that it takes quite a bit of muscle to button or unbutton this thing. The buttonholes are too small, which ensures that the buttons never pop open accidentally, but also causes a wee bit of frustration in the morning. But well worth it, methinks! If you frequent Topshop, I highly recommend this one! But stay true to size or even go one size up, since the knit is very tight and doesn't stretch much at all, which is a good thing since the cardigan won't stretch out or lose it's shape too quickly.
