This Sunday was not of my normal routine as a friend was visiting from Edinburgh, but last Sunday’s outfit began with the most basic canvas – a white t-shirt and jeans. Then on to the accoutrements…it’s still fairly cool here so decided to don my mad Penguin cardigan purchased in TJ Maxx a few years ago. TJ Maxx is not a typo – that’s the US name for TK Maxx – I will never quite understand why there is a difference. My dad and grandfather had worn Penguin in the 70s and 80s and I was delighted when I heard it was making a comeback. I was not so delighted when I discovered that the shirts I had planned on robbing from my father had made their way to the charity shop not too long before said comeback.
I didn’t go for any other accessories as I figured the glasses and cardigan were enough to embody my intended eccentric librarian look. I do wish I had a really chunky gold chain as I think it would work really well this.
