We're in February. Yay! How was January for you? For me it was one bloody long month that didn't seem to end. Is it me or is January like that every year? It goes on and on and on and on. And February will go by in a flash. I love February. I hate that it's so short. And it's my birthday month too. Whoever made the calendar did injustice to this month. Tell me, would it kill them to take a few days from January and add them to February? Hmpff.

Ranting about the calendar aside, the weather is still up and down. Today is cold. Yesterday was hot. When I took these photos it was coooolllld. I had to attend an outdoor event in the evening that day, so my warmest, fluffiest sweater was the best choice. Since the sweater is blush pink, I paired it with my burgundy jeans, and wore my tan knee boots on top. The bulkiness of the sweater allowed me to pair it with a chunky necklace. I finished the look with a black clutch. 

Come to think of it, this is the ONLY {pullover} sweater I have. And it's the first one in many years. I bought it recently when I was in Kuwait, where it was &*$%#@&% freezing. I was wondering whether I should get a nice soft sweater {I only have pea coats and a few front-opening sweaters}, but then I thought- I'm in Kuwait only for three days and it's not worth it. Then a friend told me it was 16° C in Bahrain and I said- That's it. I'm buying a sweater. And off I went the next day to Marina Mall with my friend and got this one. And I'm so glad I did! Because it's still cold, and a sweater is just so easy to throw on when all you want to do is stay warm.

I didn't get a sweater for myself for so long because I always thought it looked a bit grandma. But the fashion industry has given sweaters a revamp- now you've got different kind of knits and fabrics, in oversized/narrow/thick/thin/long/cropped, and they're being worn in so many different ways- tucked into A-line skirts, over dresses, tucked into jeans, over a maxi skirt, and more. But honestly, looks and outfit potential aside, I wanted one just for the main plebeian reason - they're so deliciously warm.

Mine is a bit on the long side so I can't do much other than wear it with skinny jeans to balance the bulkiness out. I was tempted to buy a shorter, thinner sweater to do all those looks but I know that Murphy's Law will ensure that as soon as I've bought it, the next day winter will be over. And of course, I also can't find one that I like. Arrgh.

  1. Love the statement necklace (?) and the tan boots...and the sweater is feminine and far from being granny-ish...
