What I Wore: Thoughts on a Sweater

Shirt, Smart Set; jeans, KappAhl; necklace, gift; bag, some place in Iceland; socks, made by my mummy; shoes (not here), Converse.

I'm not sure how I feel about this sweater. On one side, it is wonderfully warm. But it has fits of itchy-ness. It isn't always itchy, but every now ant then it itches a bit. On the other hand, it's a sweater I like the look of. The length presents a bit of a problem, as you can see in the picture, it is rather short. It was fine with my high waisted jeans, but I also know that with anything not high waisted, or at least medium waisted, it would spend all day pulling it down. My final thought on this sweater is that I love the colour. So I think the final tally brings it to a success.

I don't really have any other comments on this outfit, other than that for the first times in a long I was actually warm at school.

Thoughts? Requests?

Love, Rosie

  1. such a great colour! as for the itchiness/lengthm perhaps tucking in a tank top or thin longsleeve underneath it?

    and thank you so much for responding to my body image post, means a lot!

  2. you look great in it ! oh but comfy is the best . i agree with stacy :) have a nice weekend !

  3. Love the colour but if it's itchy I would use another shirt underneath. Hate when sweaters itch-=(

  4. Everyone needs a reliable v-neck sweater. The colour of this one is pretty - shame about the waves of itching - maybe try wearing a little camisole type thing underneath? At least it's warm! :) x

  5. it is a basic sweater that a gal can do much with. for itchy sweaters, i usually put a cami or a super fine tee underneath. : )

  6. Love the sweater. You are cute as a button!
    Thanks for hopping over to my blog and leaving a comment. No offence was taken sweetie, and non intended, about your lovely everyday witch outfit. Hope your Halloween will be a treat.
    Bright Blessings.

  7. The colour really is very pretty! Now that it's getting colder maybe you could wear it with some longer camisole or light long sleeved tee underneath? In some contrasting colour like red or so, or then for example a black one with black trousers /a black skirt. So that it wouldn't matter it being longer than the sweater. Then it won't itch and the shortness doesn't matter!

  8. Super cute sweater!
    Looks perfect for winter ;)
    Thanks for the comment btw!

  9. The outfit seems perfect for a fall day that is chilly. Looks very comfy and comforting. =)
