we were all so fast asleep






It might seem like rain has been pouring out of the sky for weeks on end, when in reality it has only been a few days of this dismal weather. I am sure I am not the only one who is ready for sunny skies again, yet it provides the perfect excuse for small catnaps and snuggling under warm sweaters. Rain remains a steady and compelling excuse for lazy days in front of the TV or curled up with a good book or even for hanging out with your favorite brother. Something I am unashamed to take advantage of – everyone needs a lazy day here or there right? This outfit is a compilation of sleepy, relaxing colors, textures and fabrics and although most is from an unknown place it will suit my rainy day just fine.

{random Alpaca sweater; J Crew tank; Marc by Marc Jacobs skirt; random wool socks; Polish shoes - unknown}

  4. I love large comfy sweaters. I really love the look of a huge soft cashmere sweater over a pair of tights and a skirt or a pair of leggings!

    It looks great on you. Cute outfit.

  9. I love that particular shoes and socks combination. And re: the no-name nature of your outfit, sometimes I think it would be better if none of us labelled what we were wearing. At the end of the day it's about how you look, not who you're wearing. And you look lovely. I love alpaca!

  26. You can't imagine how much I miss rain. In south of France, it's the hotness that push you to stay on a couch half of the day because it's so hot when you move. But I don't, I just do everything in slow motion. Everything is so moist.

    Anyway, I love those hudge sweaters that you always wear. And I love how you mixed the prints of your skirt/socks/shoes.

  38. I for one don't think there's anything wrong with a few lazy days in the summer holidays, we certainly deserve them after term time!

    Gorgeous sweater, I adore big knits like this, during the winter I practically live in them.

    You're very lucky to use such a great camera, I wish I had a budding photographer in the family!
