Marc Jacobs Wellington

Cashmere sweater, Muriee. Boyfriend Jeans, ASOS. Booties, Sam Edelman Rowin. Specs, YesStyle, Bag, Marc Jacobs Wellington

Just a quickie before I go tip a huge bowl of rice crackers from the lounge snack-bar into my boyfriend jeans for the 8am flight back home. I’m wearing the exact pair now and by happenchance caught a glimpse of my reflection at Tokyo Narita airport and honestly thought it looked like I pooped me pants. In a good way, like, you-ain’t-gonna-pat-me-down-there-surely type of convenience. Anyhow, this is probably not the outfit to be posting while on a layover in 35ºC+ (95ºF) Dubai, but I’m quickly learning that it’s not summer in London if there isn’t at least one piece of cashmere in a July outfit, so to heck with it. This Muriee piece is another one of those that fly on and off the couch with an indecent wash vs. wear count ratio, with a shape so boxy that so effectively conceals all stages of le food baby. My favourite bit is the fact that the cashmere is dyed with berries and leaves, brownie points for eco-friendliness!

Shot in London before leaving for Japan; Thank you Kit for helping with the snaps.

  6. these photos are so gorgeous. you manage to look so chic despite how slouchy your outfit is. i think it must be the elegance of your watch and bag. the glasses give you a cute nerd vibe too but i especially love the bag!

  12. I feel like Muriee is taking over the internets. If only they did men’s and I too could experience the cosiness. From apples to berries and leaves, I really need to start getting some foliage into my blog posts…

  15. I love Muriee sweater, I wear it nearly everyday without washing it (no odour), don’t have the guts to handwash it after I destroyed my brand new Uniqlo cashmere sweater in HK….it stretched badly.

    Best to stay in Dubai, the weather is *burp*
