LETTER A











This has got to be one of the most softest and cuddliest knits I've thrifted! It has mohair-like yarn, red striped accents and a big letter "A" on the front! I could not believe my eyes when I saw it still hanging up for grabs at my local St Vinnies. As they say - A is Apple, B is Ball, C is Caterpilla and D is for (well in this case) "DANG!" hehehe

Being a statement jumper, it is surprisingly quite easy to style and match clothes with. I pretty much wore it all last weekend - Friday to Sunday in fact! This look I went for the "comfort over style" approach pairing it up with leather-look paneled leggings (Dotti), Chelsea boots (Marais USA via Solestruck) and an old faux fur vest I picked up from Supre years ago that I always throw on for extra warmth on cooler days. My boyfriend Andy commented saying I look like I am going skiiing wearing this jumper... when I now look at these photos, the words "ski bunny" do come to mind! (sans skis and all the white snow of course) I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing. Ha! You guys can decide...

Wearing: knit (thrifted), faux fur vest (Supre), leggings (Dotti), Chelsea boots (Marais USA via Solestruck) , socks (Sportsgirl) and self-customised rose quartz necklace.



Ps. I'm going to the Gold Coast this Friday for a little getaway and some R&R! I cannot wait!

  21. Um, WOW! Model much!

    Andy is totally right, you have been looking a little like a ski bunny as of late, but I like it. That knit sure looks cuddly, and what the fur is from Supre? That's amazing!
