Never Let Me Go

As this outfit came together I was thinking of the film Never Let Me Go, or rather the film through the eyes of Kater of All This Happiness. Basically, this is my "sad clone in sweater" outfit (which will make sense if you've seen the film). There's just something about the obnoxiously oversized fit of this sweater that seemed like what you would wear when you're really feeling down; a kind of security blanket to wear out of the house (or inside the house when you're too sad to cross the threshold of your bedroom door). However, I wore this down to the beach and between the sunshine and how deserted the shore was, my mood was considerably far from sad. I'm happiest when I have the beach to myself, or some friend I have brought with me; claiming ownership of a small stretch of sand and rocks I really have no right to call my own.

  4. I definitely feel the Never Let Me Go vibe, though it's quite a sad subject to base an outfit on! I quite like the timelessness of the wardrobe in that film though :)

  22. That sweater is the cuttest thing ever, it seems as warm as a blanket. I love empty beaches as much I hate crowned ones.

  25. Holly Cow, when I saw the color combo combined with the water scenery the first thing that flickered into my mind was indeed Never Let Me Go...and lo and behold, apparently that WAS your intention. Lovely indeed.

  28. Gorgeous outfit! And Never Let Me Go is one of my favourite movies. I love Carey Mulligan :) Not just her acting, but also her quirky style.
