how i wear it now | part two


Is it just me or do I look like I have about 8 fingers on one hand there haha?

Pretty sure the Owls jumper will be resurfacing every year until it disintegrates!  Kate Davies really created a classic here. Given that it’s made of Icelandic Lopi wool, this could be quite some time.  Definitely not the softest on the skin but it’s by far the warmest – I wore this one on a Duke of Edinburgh walk in December and was lovely and toasty even in the snow.

Makes me giggle how I used to wear this knit with my beige bootlegs and riding boots.  Thankfully that embarrassing combination escaped the camera!  These days I like to combine cheekier pieces like these shorts with prim items like this blouse and jumper combo.

I passed by the Shoemarket on the way back to the car park last weekend, and saw these boots in the window.  Never thought in a million years I’d like anything in there, but these slouchy suede-look pair were a bargain at £20.



Jumper: Handknit
Blouse: Forever 21
Shorts: H&M
Tights: Next
Boots: Market


oldowls2 Still wearing the same clothes at nearly 16 as I was at 11 but it’s crazy how much my arse has grown since then haha!

oldowls1 BTW… Has anybody else had trouble tweeting in the #lbloggers and #fbloggers chats?  My tweets do not show up on the hashtag search, and I wondered if anyone else had encountered this.  Would be nice to be able to get involved in the scheduled chats and find more new bloggers!

If you would like to follow me, here I am on twitter and instagram.  One day I’ll get links sorted in the sidebar. 😉

    That is a gorgeous sweater! The colour is golden and lovely. It will probably fit forever. You know, I’m really liking this “then and now” set. I’ve made 7 owl/owlet sweaters. Two for me, two for Iris (7yrs), 3 for Stella (almost 3 yrs). It is a super awesome pattern, but I haven’t tried Icelandic Lopi before. Hmm… maybe just one more…
