It’s not even that cold outside yet and I’ve already worn a sweater like there was no tomorrow or no fall, like for a whole season. I’ve been wearing it for a week now and it has been quite a ride; it awakened my creativity each time I had to leave the house and wanted it on me. Nothing else.
I’d just succeeded in letting a jacket – I’d loved for a whole week before, because when I like something, I love something – off and felt like done with jackets for a while, though the while chosen is all about jackets.
Seems like done with sweaters pretty soon, also.
Until then (done with sweaters or run around naked), I am wearing sweaters and finding solutions of blending them into outfits that will not only keep me warm, but make me feel good in a lapse when it feels so good to wear sweaters with no jackets on top. A time lapse so fine it’s like a line. A fine line. So fine. A “ready-to-eat-avocado” fine.
Truth is, when layering a structured sweater, there is no way in which a jacket would fit anyway. Unless the huge, orange Acne one. Unless you want to feel like the “Bird lady” from “Home alone“. Unless you are so damn cold you would fit yourself and a bunch of friends inside.
Let’s say you don’t poses a huge jacket, you want to be Kevin and you are not so damn cold. You just have this merino wool sweater you like so much you don’t want to let go of. Like I, for instance, do. Fyi, merino wool will not only keep you warm, but also preserve your body’s temperature.
You’d better stay hot, you. Yooou.
1. When wearing a skirt, as a girl – I swear! – it seems like everything happens faster, better. With the right sweater.
2. The sweater could protect you from a tiny rain. A cap though, oh! Put it on, let it do the magic and put the sun above your head.
3. Do your twist with the dress you loved so much in summer that you take it to the late fall cocktail party and feel like Cupid trying to make this impossible love affair between summer and fall possible.
4. Make sure you don’t want to pee all day and wear your current favourite jumpsuit underneath the sweater. The two of them are so blended, you hardly (literally) can tear them apart. Awm.
If you see me still wearing the sweater these days, you must know it’s just been cleaned.
