Fair Isle Fancy

Tuesday, November 13, 2012 224 0

Sweater: H&M (recent). Shirt: Old Navy (similar). Skirt: H&M. Rings: Kate Spade, CoachHandbag: Balenciaga. Shoes: Nine West (similar). Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

I love this sweater!  Not only do I currently fancy fair isle knits, but I can wear it with so many different colours.  It’s so warm and cozy. . .perfect for snowy winter evenings at the ski cabin, sipping cocoa by the fire.  Who am I kidding. . .I don’t ski, I’ve never made a fire, and I sure as heck don’t own a winter cabin.  A girl can dream, can’t she?

    LOL, love this post! Great sweater I’m jealous you get to pretend to wear, it will never cool down enough for me to wear a sweater like this!

      Ha ha ha, thanks Amy! Trust me, there is NOTHING to be jealous of! I would love to NOT have to wear this sweater to keep warm! 🙂

    I love fair isle knits too, there’s just something so cozy and cuddly about them. Extra points for making them so chic too. Love how you’ve paired it with the orange skirt. You definitely have a knack for mixing colours.

    You should probably buy a cabin STAT! Heehee. Well I do like the sweater, but I’m more impressed by yet another adorable skirt. I mean really…how many do you have?!?!

    I was thrown for a bit when you started writing about the skiing etc. I thought, wow, is Jenny the city girl going country? ha ha.

    • Jenny
      November 13, 2012

      Aww, thanks Alexa! Ha ha, yes, it’s a sock bun, but I used this round hair thing from H&M that accomplishes the same thing, and is a little easier to use than a sock.

    I was “dreaming” the same things when I saw your first pic of the sweater! That is perfect for all those dreams, especially if you never do them like me! I am terrified of skiing and couldn’t even tell you how to even light a fire. But the reality is, this is perfect for sitting on the sofa under a cozy blanket, sipping cocoa and reading a book!

    This is my first post to any blog…I found you thru Pink Peonies months ago. I’m LOVING your style…LOVE you blog…it’s my daily treat! Your hairstyle bun is SOOO chic. How is that possible with short hair??? Please, share your secret??? Thanks, Adriana

    • Jenny
      November 13, 2012

      Aww, I’m so honoured to be your first comment on a blog Adriana! 🙂 Thank you so very much for your sweet words and your support! Ha ha, the trick is lots of hairspray and a few bobby pins! 🙂 I use a hair doughnut I bought from H&M http://www.hm.com/gb/product/05437?article=05437-A . I think this helps make it appear more full also, since I really have barely any hair available to make the bun! I have to use a few bobby pins at the back to hold up a few hairs that are just slightly too short. Let me know if I can help with anything else. Thanks again Adriana!
