Whimsical is perhaps the best word to describe this whole photoshoot. Starting from the surprisingly bad (dark, wet and cold) weather, through my quirky look, finishing at the librarian-style glasses - all of this could be defined by the aforementioned word. Let's ignore the first point - honestly, the fact it was so dark we could barely take good shots speaks for itself - and break down the outfit by its key pieces.
This grandpa sweater has been in my wardrobe for more than two years already. Even though it can be considered a typical ugly sweater, you seem to adore it everytime I wear it - and let me tell you, I do it a lot! It appeared once here on the blog, but I show it very often in my OOTD shots. Here I paired it with a denim vest underneath and a bright red woolen skirt. Judging by the colour scheme, the sweater and the skirt look like a match made in heaven!
Next, there's that pair of cat eye glasses. Actually, those have no prescription - so why am I wearing them? Just recently I got my eyes checked thoroughly and it turned out that my prescription glasses are doing literally NOTHING to correct my eyesight; it worsened through the past few years and my current prescription glasses are way too weak. Luckily, it isn't really that bad and I can see without them pretty good (astigmatism is the real problem here). So while I'm deciding whether should I save money for new glasses or switch to contact lenses, I'm experimenting with various frames. Plus, don't you think this librarian-style pair matches my curled up bangs?
