"In the depth of winter, I finally learned that there was in me, an invincible summer"
Summer is fast approaching, and whether I like it or not, my knitted sweaters and cardigans will have to hibernate in my closet for a while. So while there's still a tinge of cool breeze in the atmosphere, I will be making the most out of it. So here's one of the last few ootds in my cable knitted sweaters:
I was so fond of my hair color in the outdoors, I feel Haley Williams-ish lol.
So I bought this sweater from an Instagram shop (as always) called Ellie's Shop 101. This shop is one of the many who are based in Baguio City, Philippines. For my readers who aren't familiar, Baguio City is located in the Northern mountainous part of our country and is dubbed as the "Summer Capital" because of its cool climate. Thus, sweaters are a must for the residents which I honestly envy. I had only been to Baguio once and that was way back when I was a toddler. This coming summer though, I will ensure to get my ass off there lol. Also, Baguio City has tons of vintage stores, or what we call "Ukay-ukay" and most likely sell all sorts of knitted pieces, which is knitty heaven for the likes of me. So as for a Manila person, I would have to do with what Instagram shops have to offer. Thank goodness for Baguio based shops (heart) (heart)
I am definitely head over heels with this sweater! I can also wear this to the office, which by the way is also freezing. I am not quite tolerant to extremely cold places which is why I tend to hoard cardigans and coats and layer them all at once. But when I got this top, it was so unbelievably warm and comfortable, I can wear this as is without any other layers on!
I had been wanting to try a school girlish outfit with a sweater so I paired it with this adorable blue skorts from Frugalista Shop. It's super flouncy and has built in shorts underneath which rescues me from accidental public flashing lol. Lastly, I wore this cute floral sneakers and a backpack to complete my (somewhat) youthful look! So what do you guys think? I'd love to hear from you :)
