I’m having this sort of crisis when it comes to maintaining my wardrobe. I’m obsessed with the casual cool of the nineties but I love the polished, classic look as well. They feel like parallel universes. I feel like it’s a bit of a clothes identity crisis and I have to decide. I guess I’ll have to. I’m not sure how you would though.

And yes I get that the 90’s thing will pass {again} but it’s vibe of it I love. It sort of shows up for me in this outfit, that’s why I mention it. The mash-up of styles. The easy and breezy with the classic. Throw a little humour in and it’s all very me. Hello GEEK jumper. So I battle on with my split personality wardrobe and for now it works. I’ll keep you posted on whether the two can exist together. Maybe classic and chic can’t exist with my hatred of ironing and lack of hairstyle skills anyway. Meh. We’ll see.

Can I talk for a minute about the weather around here lately? I wore this over the weekend. The same weekend I wore the shirt-dress in this post because it was too hot for anything else. Seriously. My town is like Melbourne at the moment. An itty bitty version, obviously, but it’s like four seasons in one day.

The layering of a sleeveless shirt helped. Normally I’d wear a cami over the singlet to smooth the buttons out. But it was too hot for that. Same went for the shoes, I tossed up for ages, sneakers or these t-bar sandals. I went with the cooler option because even though the rain was falling and the day was grey, it wasn’t cold cold either. In the end it worked out well for the air-conditioned venue we were headed to but if I’d stayed outside for long, the jumper would’ve been ditched. STAT.

    I have the geek jumper too and I love it, it makes me laugh as I get some weird looks when I wear it, prob something to do with living in rural Ireland lol. Anyways it looks fab on you with the shirt underneath so I’ll have try it that way too 🙂

    • It’s so fun to wear. In winter I live in this thing. Can’t wait to pair it with lots of different bottoms. Fun! So that should keep you going for ideas too. Haha. Rural Ireland won’t know what hit them. 😉

  • That geek jumper is awesome! Love this outfit, how is it you always look amazing, even when you’re pulling a funny face!

    • A random photogenic gene according to my Dad. Haha. Thanks Nat. And yes! This GEEK jumper is the best. I’m wondering how long it will hold together given all the use it gets during winter.
