It’s been cold, gloomy, and raining all week, so today, I dressed like it. Sometimes, when the sky is grey and the sun can’t seem to shine through, I like bright colours to lighten the mood. Makes sense, doesn’t it? But, other times, I like to dress like the weather. Dark and heavy, with a pretty bright bag, like a light at the end of the tunnel.
This bolero-style wool sweater is one of my favourites. The pattern is quite old-fashioned, I think—maybe the kind of thing your grandma might knit for you—and I love that. Plus, it’s so warm!
These high-waisted trousers are my favourite. They’re comfy, they go with everything, but most of all, they’re flattering.
I just love this turquoise bag. It reminds me of the ocean and sea-foam. And, right here, in the bleak midwinter, it’s got me dreaming of summer. It’s bright and calming, at the same time, and that’s how I like it. My uncle got it for me on a trip to Morocco, and it’s too beautiful.
