The age of the understatement

Skinny Buddha criss cross sweater pleated midi skirt

We've had an exceptionally sunny winter day yesterday and I couldn't be happier. I've been in sort of a sulky mood lately, hence the lack of posting and activity on social media,  and this was just the kick I needed to stop procrastinating and get some things done. First on my agenda was to get out and take some outfit pictures for the blog. I only managed to snap one of two outfits because we were losing the light, but it all turned out for the better because I wasn't totally happy with my second outfit anyway. I then stopped by for some shopping therapy at the Fashion Fridays Christmas Fair.  If you are in need of some cool gift ideas for the holidays and want to give Santa some help, our local designers have plenty to offer, so make sure you check out their selection. The fair is open today as well. Of course I went to the voting station as well, but since the preliminary results of the parliamentary elections look kind of gloomy, I will not get into the subject.

Now let's move on to the fun part, and that is the outfit I am wearing. I ditched the coat for the sake of the photos, but as I was saying, we had a pretty warm day yesterday so I did not freeze for a change. I started putting together this outfit around this pleated midi skirt in a beautiful scarlet tone. I love the elegance of pleated skirts and they way they move when I walk or swirl. Yes yes, even grown ups swirl. I kept everything else in muted tones so that the skirt would stand out. But I guess this cozy criss-cross sweater is an eye catcher as well. I've been kinda obsessed with laces lately, and this sweater definitely stole my heart. Love that you can wear it off the shoulder as well and show off some skin (*wink*). Pairing knits with fluid materials is one of my favorite mixes the result is super stylish.
