HOW I WEAR FAIRISLE JUMPERS

There’s a storm over the UK. I hope it calms down during the day because I have to run some errands. Wearing a hat today is definately not advisable but I will wear my fairisle jumper which I’ve recently bought at Barbour. I’ve developed such a passion for these jumpers especially for those that are a bid wider around the neck so you can wear it with a printed blouse. I found mine at Dubarry of Ireland. I think these blouses look great with fairisle jumpers. I’m currently looking for a richer colour, I do love this combination I found on Pinterest. It’s a classic English look with preppy elements. I don’t know if you know Sarah Vickers: She and her husband Kiel are mastering this look with perfection. Sarah’s Instagram as well as her blog are pure inspiration to me.

 
 

Joerg and I have intensified our search for a house or a big flat because it’s clear now that we won’t be staying in our semi-detached house for very long. We would love to buy something. I’m dreaming of a place that has got some ‘character’ and less of a house right off the shelf. I have my doubts if we really get what we’re looking for though. Yesterday we viewed a cottage that was 300 years old but was a nightmare. Especially when it comes to insulation or windows, disillusion comes quicker than anything else. You got to make a compromise. Houses that look so incredibly romantic in films are an entirely different story in reality. It remains exciting.

 

What I wore:

Jack Wills Austerberry Blazer, Barbour Mallow Knit Sweater (love this and this one as well), Dubarry Brooklime Shirt, Zara Booties (old; similar here or here), Stetson Waterproof Hat (old; similar here or here)

Another really great outfit, love your style & blog. Had to comment on this as I spent many a happy childhood Sunday in Castleton, having grown up in Sheffield. We made an annual New Year’s Eve pilgrimage to the Christmas lights there – always a row of Christmas trees with large, colourful bulbs along the high street.

Oh Rozanne, thanks so much for your lovely comment!! And you know what? To me this annual New Year’s Eve pilgrimage sounds absolutely perfect, something I would love to adopt so thank you for giving me an idea.x

How nice that your perspective on this journey is that it’s exciting. I could see that it could be very stressful and frustrating too??
What a great idea to use a print blouse under your fair isle sweater!! I knit a sweater like this once for a friend, and now I may have to do one for me!!

I know, it would be a lie to say that it’s not frustrating and extremely stressful at times but then again, we wanted to come here and we’re positive we will find someting. You just have to stay positive, right? Thank you Jodie.

Thanks so much Ruth, wearing fairisle jumpers here in the UK – I think they go so well with the countryside.
