26 Oct Sweater Obsessed: Orange IS the new Black!
It’s sweater season again and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I love fall and my favourite season…if it could be one season all year, I would forever choose fall. The colors of the changing leaves give me hope for new beginnings and I totes need that now after giving birth and not having time to even shower properly. I have had the chance to walk around the mall a few times with the little bug and I noticed how big of a place sweaters are taking in stores, even more so than before. Sweaters are my obsession and I love fall and winter purely for that because you can look good while being snuggly and warm. There are the ugly acrylic sweaters that loose shape right away and the wool ones that itch so much…I think trying to find the perfect sweater is an art and collecting them is an even bigger art. I have collected a few sweaters throughout the years; some new, some vintage, some thrifted…but overall my collection is one I am proud of.
This sweater caught my eye immediately because the color is glorious! I never wore something completely orange as this sweater and what I love about it is that it’s oversized which means more room for snuggle-iness. I think orange might be my new favorite color, move over burgundy, you’ve got a strong contender! So, I decided to pair this sweater with a vintage skirt I bought a few months ago when I was hugely pregnant but couldn’t wear it, so now is the appropriate moment to take it out into the light. I find that midi skirts are super flattering especially that I am on the petite’s side. I don’t have to worry about it being too long or too short; it’s just the perfect length. Since being a new mum, there’s rarely an opportunity right now to wear heels (unless I go on a date-but le hubs isn’t here), which means I am now stuck on flats for the next while and so my trustee Converse trainers are my go-to at the moment. They’re white and so they can easily be worn with any outfit and besides I love them so much, I think I might invest in another pair; perhaps black or maybe a crazy colourful one.
This outfit is the epitome of fall for me and even thought the colors are bright, they are still muted in a way (not that you can’t wear bright colors in fall or winter…you can do whatever you want really!). I am seriously in love with this skirt, if I could wear it as my daily uniform I would, but that would just be sad.

I am glad to have a little more time to wear proper clothes now other than sweats and hoodies. Smelling of milk has got me feeling blue and so I needed to refresh and get out of the little rut I was in. This is perhaps the start of new colourful fashion adventures and I am so happy that I get to share them with you…
