Weather Inappropriate

What I'm wearing:
Jacket - thrifted
Short-sleeved sweater - Zara Studio
Jeans - Topman
Tote - McQueen at the V&A
Chelsea boots - ASOS

Choosing what to wear whilst on holiday is a meticulous process, which, if you're as sad as me, involves thoughtful planning, many lists and even the odd 'clothing chart'. Don't even get me started on the constraints of having to fit everything you want to wear in your carry-on luggage. Whilst Cat and myself were in Copenhagen (which I promise I'm nearly done talking about), we had the added bonus of unpredictable weather to make almost all of our outfits at least vaguely inappropriate. ...Let's just say that a thin linen top and ripped jeans didn't make for the most thermal ensemble to pose in.

Whilst in Copenhagen, we thoroughly enjoyed perusing the Danish Museum of Art & Design. There, we learnt a lot about the evolution of Danish style and the influence that Japanese tailoring had and continues to have long after the two cultures first crossed paths in the mid-19th century. I've always admired the effortlessness of Scandinavian style but I struggle to emulate it in my own wardrobe. For the last four years I've worn almost exclusively skin tight jeans that verge on tights, but more recently I've attempted (with varying degrees of success) to venture into the world of trousers that don't cut off the circulation to my legs. I mean, I'm still wearing skin tight jeans in this post, but I am trying, I promise...

When I found this relaxed fit sweater on the Zara Studio website, I instantly fell in love. Whilst I'm not the biggest fan of unfinished seams and raw edges, I love the 'boxy' nature of its tailoring and I've really enjoyed pairing it with the different staples of my wardrobe (hence why you might recognise most of this outfit from my winter lookbook). As much as I like this outfit, I must admit that it was decidedly inappropriate for the biting winds and occasional bouts of rain that Copenhagen decided to throw at us! If you look carefully, you can see my frostbitten knees and red-raw fingers that came this close to falling off...

I've really enjoyed playing with different styles of tailoring recently and hopefully I'll be able to document some of my future endeavours and adventures away from skinny jeans on my blog in the future!

  1. I always show interest to read the poems. The reason is that in this way you can learn about the good things. The ten poems that you mention in this article are so interesting. I am so impressed from these poems and these poems are my favorite’s poems.

  2. I must say the blog post is just useful for everyone else reading it because the information and knowledge it contains is very important. I like the post! Excellent job! Keep sharing such valuable information through your blogs.

  3. Choosing what to wear and when to wear is so mandatory; I mean you cannot sit with me if you don’t have a good dress sense. When I was in my final year, almost half of my class asked my recommendation for best fashion marketing dissertation topics, because I always had so many ideas; but no platform sigh. Really loved your outfit.

  4. One of my favourite books is Rules & Regulations. Thank you for adding this to the list. However, I just started accountant baulkham hills, and it's keeping me from doing the things I enjoy. I miss reading interesting novels on my balcony while watching sunsets.

  5. Wearing outfits according to the weather is mandatory because you can not wear summer dresses in winter and vice versa. So it is important to choose wisely. I remember making the same mistake because I was very nervous about my assignment and I could not even choose anything properly. Later, my friend suggested I look for Assignment Services - UKAssignmenthelp.uk This site was also suggested to me by them. They helped me a lot to reduce pressure.

  6. Wearing according to weather is good enough. I am here to share about the Battery Electric Vehicle I hope you will like it.
