Sunny side up

So these are some photos from yesterday's summery outfit:

This is the only vintage knitted jumper that I own and I purchased it from Doo Wop Dolly on ebay.  I don't usually purchase vintage knitted items online because I am never sure of the sizing but the previous owner is a similar size to me so I thought it would fit ok... and it does!  I love the cute buttons on the shoulder and the bright colour.

I went to see The Great Gatsby yesterday and I have to say I was a bit disappointed with the film!!  I am a fan of the book and I felt that the first two thirds of the move trivialised the story upon which it was based.  I also couldn't get my head around the modern music (and I get what Luhrmann was trying to do with the contemporary music in the film and it was a huge risk but for me it did not pay off.)  I have liked Luhrmann's previous work so it is not that I am not a fan of his directorial style but in this case, I just felt that it is not a movie I wanted to see again.  I didn't totally hate it - I thought that the actors were well cast (especially for Gatsby and Jordan Baker) and also the scenes in the Valley of Ashes were really well done. 

As I type this post, it is super sunny outside but it seems that I have decided to spend the two sunniest days of my four day weekend in the cinema!

  1. What a lovely ray of sunshine! That sweater is beautiful, I love the V pattern in the front. I'm right there with you, they are so hard to buy online (or find in real life!). Between the fit & the possibility of secret moth holes... I need to start knitting again, haha.
