Chunky Knit

21.9.10





It’s what I look forward to as soon as the cool fall weather rolls around. But the words 'chunky' and 'knit' brings to mind those jumper you receive from grandma at Christmas, with a big santa right in the middle, that ends up buried in the deepest darkest corner of your closet. Either that or the prissy twin sets you wear to school as a young girl with your matching ruffled socks and little mary-janes. Ahhhh, I do miss those times! 

Now that there's a bit of a nip in the air, there's nothing I like more that being all warm and cozy. And this cardi came in very handy for yesterday's confusing weather where a coat was too warm, and a jacket to chilly. Since I'd rather not nip the waist in with a belt, I decided to add some pins/brooches to keep it from looking too bland. I'm in the middle of embellishing this further with all the random pins, earrings, brooches, rings, and other pieces of jewellery lying around my flat.  

PS: A big thank you to Emma from Daily Clothes Fix and Jasmine from The Girl With Kaleidoscope Eyes for the lovely blog awards. Means a lot!

PSS: I did an interview with Britty from Woodstock Hearts Fashion. If, you're interested in the slightest, click here. Thanks Britty!

Wishing you all a warm and fuzzy Tuesday!

 Bisous, 
Abs

Heehee... oops.
As I was saying. That looks sooo incredibly cozy! The weather here was a mess today, windy and rainy one minute, randomly sunny the next. I could have used a dress like that!

Hey Abi,
Thanks for entering my giveaway... it was cool to hear something about my own country! ; ) But is Toronto really more multicultural than London do you think? Just interested...
I love those vintage shoes... I don't know why I never find these things in my vintage hunts!
I also really enjoyed the editorial below and the Yeye one below that, but have a bit of commenting fatigue at the moment!

For a chance to win a handmade Mexican necklace, join the GIVEAWAY on Ruby Slipper Journeys!

Tastes Eclectic Fashion said...

Oh it looks great! Such a great knit. Makes me want to jump right into fall. They're one of the best parts about the colder seasons. I like the pin embellishments instead of a belt. It's unexpected which makes it great.

Monique said...

This outfit is awesome. Love your hair too!

I love the sweater dress! its so lovely and slouchy! x

Abi said...

@Jason- an exaggerated WOW for emphasis. Ha!

@Tywo: thank you! I'll be by to have a look ;)

@Liv: yoyo-like weather really does my head in. I yhink h&m has something similar

@Sarah: Ditto! Hot chocolate by the fireplace with a good book preferably in a wooden cabin somewhere

@shelby: you should do it!

@Emily: completely understand the comment fatigue! I thought London was more diverse, but research show otherwise. I think London might give the illusion of diversity because of all the various tourists there, but Toronto trumps apparently.
