Country Weekend: Fair Isle

 Dress: Forever 21
Tights: Hue
Belt: Versace
Bag: Mulberry Bayswater
Boots: Aldo
Hat: American Apparel
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

I have been obsessed with the whole fair isle sweater dress since August when I was scanning the pages of September Vogue on the beaches of Cabo. Although the sun was blazing hot at that time, I knew that upon my return to Vancouver, nice chilly weather would sweep soon and a great sweater dress was needed to get me through the cold months.
And this Forever 21 dress sure did!
I have been wearing it non stop since I got it to the point that is piling so badly in some areas. I regret not buying multiples of it. This dress is as cozy as it looks good. 
To me that is fashion perfection!

P.S. Happy Valentine's day for you guys that celebrate it. We don't, just cause we don't believe that society norms should be telling us when we should celebrate our love for each other. We have our own special day and that is called our anniversary! This is just another capitalistic plot to get you to spend more money on things you didn't really need to begin with in the first place!

You are so right about Valentine's. I don't celebrate it either. I must say I really love your sweater-dress. It has a lovely print and it seems so cozy. And the hat completes perfectly the outfit!:D

I so agree. I used to be one of those "must do something for Valentines" girls, but my bf now has taught me that really, it's just a female competition to see who has the best bf. I don't need to compete: he's just great by my books (aww).

Love your fair isle sweater dress!! I've been looking for one like that too! Damn, now I can't exactly go to F21 and copy you can I hehe

I didn't celebrate Valentine's day either, never did and never will. Beside beeing such a comercial event, it has nothing to do with the country i live in although here people act as if is the biggest deal ever.
Anyway, i love your boots!I adore the combo boots plus dress/sweater dress and you've nailed it so good:D And that hat gives a great touch to the whole ensemble. Great Mina, you never dissapoint me!

Kisses

I have to agree with you. I don`t celebrate Valantine`s Day, because it is an imported holiday. here in Romania we have Dragobete, but I don`t celebrate this dau either :). As you said, we have our special day, our anniversary, and that day it`s really special for us. We do not go by the rules. Also I dislike all those plush heart and chocolate candy (not that I don`t like candy, but the idea it`s the one I don`t like) that are given in this day.

I love the sweater dress, it looks amazing with your thigh high boots and floppy hat.
I agree, people don't need to be told when to celebrate their love. It's something you do everyday when you are in love.

Such pretty photographs! I love the location- it was so perfect for your outfit. I really love the combination of the nordic sweater and the big brimmed hat.. it's wintery with a little nod to spring that's coming.
