Knowing my love of buttons, my OH very sneakily bought me a gorgeous set from Cath Kidston - whilst I was in the changing room! (Told you it was sneaky!) What a lovely surprise -
As soon as I saw them I knew that I wanted to put them onto a top or a cardi, so set about trying to find something that would be 'just right'.
Eventually I settled for a navy cardi. I know I'll get lots of wear out of it, navy will go with everything already in my wardrobe, and with the addition of these pretty buttons I'll want to wear it practically every day!
In case you're wondering, it's from H & M. As cardigans go, it's pretty unspectacular, but it was just what I was looking for! (And it's something that I know I'll wear for a very long time.)
So, armed with my cardi, my buttons and my threads, I took the opportunity to enjoy some rare sunshine we had and sat out in the garden whilst I 'pimped my cardi'!
It went from this -
To this (after it took me aaaaages to decide on which order to place the buttons!!) -
I struggled to get a really good photo of it to allow all the buttons to really shine in all their Cath Kidston goodness, but here's a few more pictures of the buttons just for good measure! From the bottom up -
And of course, from the top down -
And finally, here's a pic of me actually wearing it....
Sorry I'm headless, I hate taking my own pic, having my pic taken, seeing pics of myself etc etc!!
I still have half of the buttons left, soooooooo.... this one is next up to be pimped!
