In my years of going to Art college for me there were a number of key essential survival items. One was the high waisted Levi denim shorts that were way too tight, some of your dads oversized 80’s sweaters that just screamed student and a selection of cute oversized scarfs of course but no matter were you studied Arran sweaters were a must. Temple Bar in Dublin city centre was always a safe bet for a good night out but for me personally I always wanted something a little different. Every night was very much the same and a bit repetitive, so it was the only college trend I did not over indulge in. I am always on the look out for something different, especially spending some free time Winter shopping, I just loved it. For me there is nothing better than feeling snug and cozy in an oversized cardigan. For fashionable knitwear, I am obsessed with “For Love and Lemons”. Their selection of knits are a contrast between basic knitwear to over the top statement pieces. I feel they are to die for. I love this clothing brand for so many reasons but mainly because of the tailoring and craftsmanship that goes into all of their garments. Some of you may think they are expensive but for me having bought several pieces it really is money well spent in my opinion. This particular one in cream colour sold out really fast but don’t worry, there is now one available in a beautiful dark blue colour which is perfect. I know for some people its hard to consider buying knitwear instead of a summers dress at this point in the year, in fact you might think I am crazy but why not ? You will only regret it come September ! So move fast, sales don’t last forever !
