A month or so ago I spotted this super chunky cuddly oversized knit in Woolies and decided to add it to my closet.  I’m very bad in that I don’t often try things on in the store and then wait two or three months before I wear said item and by then I’ve tossed the receipt in the bin and in fact I think a size down would have been better, but then it would also have been shorter in the back.  I’m not totally in love with this ‘high-low’ look on this knit, but I do love the feel of it, so I’ll be forgiving of the inadequacies … lol.  When I was rummaging for what top to wear, I saw this in the back of my drawer and feeling a bit flu-ish along with a sty, I needed some cuddling and since everyone was at work and school, the next best thing beside my winter gown is a good chunky knit.

I added my black ‘pirate boots’ from Rage which are about three years old and my leopard print scarf from Cotton On that reminds of the one Taryn was wearing when I visited her for the wedding in January.  At the time of purchasing this scarf, it was marked down to a ridiculous R60.00 – y’all know how I love a half price bargain.

Not a winning look in my eyes, I think my jeggings are starting to get too stretched and looking a little too lose around the crotch area, but an acceptable look overall, but where the knit is ending, its evening out the hips a little.  No accessories beside my diamond studs as the knit and scarf have more than enough going on by themselves.

Another chilly morning in Jo’burg and a rather murky looking morning overall.  But this gal has the world to conquer so I’ll be heading off.

    I love the shape of that sweater and how it just sort of effortlessly falls. Makes me wish it was winter here again… almost.

    Looking good Wendy. I am still a bit afraid of the high low sweaters. I am just not brave enough for it.
