Casual cozy comfort...

Today is the shortest day of the year here, I drove to work this morning in pitch blackness, granted, I did leave just after 7am.

22nd June 09

22nd June 09 2

And all this darkness about the place calls for cosy comfort and a little 70’s vibe (though I should have thrown my red chucks on too).

I’ve got about three of these little cropped long sleeved jersey’s (this one, a green one and a little blue and white knitted sailor one that I think may have belonged to a small child) that I got in summer this year. I haven’t pulled them out mainly because I was waiting to get high waisted jeans to wear them with. I just can’t picture myself wearing them with a skirt – is that strange? It just seems like I’d be mixing things that shouldn’t be mixed. Maybe if I get the right skirt…

Ps) here are a few more snow pictures I took from the other day. The initial ones I took were in the morning when I woke up, these are from about an hour later, the clouds closed in and the snow started to fall in huge, heavy snowflakes…

  2. Wow, some lovely pics! I love your look here. Do you mind if I ask where you got those fabulous trousers/jeans from? I just love them and I haven't been able to source a pair myself.

  4. Jen, what about with a high-waisted denim pencil skirt? Would that look too strange?

  5. The jersey is so nice...a good way to adjust to the rougher weather. And the denims are really good as well. Hum....I can picture the jersey with the right skirt, though....I think...

    Oh, and I absolutely loved the white dress on the previous post. It was pretty much amazing and you look gorgeous on it!

    ......snooooooooooooooow! It is so beautiful. I would love for it to snow where I live at winter time....well....if we had central heating that is... :P

  7. Wow, Dunedin looks chilly, brrr!

    Cute outfit, I love little sweaters like that, I can never seem to pull them off! I was thinking skirt-wise, you could get away with a big full pouffy '50s style skirt, with a vintage scarf tied around the neck!

  14. I love that sweater. I think it would look really 20's-ish with a knee length pleated skirt. But the jeans look super cute too.

  16. Cute as a vintage button! I adore your jeans, that dark, inky wash is my favourite shade for blue denim.

    Wishing you a splendid Thursday,
