When I first spotted this giraffe striped sweater last Fall, I quickly went to assess the fabric and quality of the sweater. While it was slightly thinner than I did like, I couldn’t help but add it to my wishlist as it had both things that I like – giraffe AND stripes! (I previously shared why I love giraffes here.) Having shopped in Banana Republic for a while, I knew they had 40% off regular items on every Wednesday, so I patiently awaited for their next promotion/sale to purchase the sweater. I didn’t have to wait too long for the sweater was marked down in the span of two weeks! (Fast fashion, anyone?) Ah, patience almost always pays when it comes to shopping for me. 😉
Aside from relying on turtlenecks for Winter (see here), a thick chunky knit is a staple for my Winter basics. While I love the idea of layering, sometimes it requires more effort than my brain is capable of when I’m pressed for time!
We finally went to visit Harry Potter World and I decided to keep things simple with my trusty winter basics. A more detailed post to come in the near future on our tour to the Warner Bros. Studio.
Some days I can’t help but be a little matchy-matchy in my outfits. With the Spring-like weather, a scarf isn’t needed with my turtleneck top but I wanted to interject some colors to my otherwise boring outfit. The bright blue scarf was the perfect antidote to match the other shades of blues in my outfit!
Thanks to your lovely input to this post, I have decided to keep the ZARA Wool Dress and have returned the skirt. I wore it out for a date night with G and kept it simple by doubling the wool scarf as a shawl when indoors to keep my shoulders warm. My outfit attracted some attention, as we had a visitor while G was taking my outfit shots!
While I have trips and new additions to my wardrobe that I’d like to blog, I realize it’s been a long while since I’ve posted an outfit. To amend that, here’s an outfit on my Winter basics. The weather has been relatively balmy in London and I’m pleased to say the least! (Sorry, I know most of you in the US are dealing with a cold Winter!) I invested in a new coat during the Black Friday sales in anticipation of the cold but so far it’s been my shield against the wind rather than the cold (which is perfectly fine by me!)
