Wearing: V-neck wool cardigan – Gap. Cord leggings trousersGap. Dress – Stylenanda. Hat – Hoss Intropia. Bag – L.K.Bennett. Rose-gold watch – Guess. Leather knot bracelet – COS (similar). Boots – Zara. Cashmere scarf – Johnstons of Elgin. Thank you Kit for the outfit snaps!

I love days like this, when one very early morning meeting brings you to the other end of town and you end up spending the day in a very foreign surrounding. You poke at the Twittersphere for some recommendations in the area and ask whether or not they use a different currency/language here, and BAM you land a breakfast date with a friend you never see because, well, she lives at the bloody other end of town. The next thing you know, you’re digging through a mountain of bacon and the smell of it all invites a friendly pooch to sit at your feet, who you eventually end up naming ‘Bacon’. We still don’t know who its owner was and where it came from… although we’re pretty sure its real name is either Bacon, or Bread, or Tuna sandwich, considering that it pootled over to the next table once he saw no more bacon on my chin. And we thought it loved us.

Also, wearing what is probably the most comfortable outfit ever. I mean, cords and a chunky cardigan… it’s like my mother dressed me. Or my father, actually, come to think of it. All with a tiered dress-thing that actually very effectively covers up the junk in the trunk, and boots so comfortable I can jog in. This is the first of a little style series I’m doing with Gap and a couple of their knitwear/cord classics for the Styld.by platform. Make sure to check back for more of what I’m sure will be comfortable outfits championing the Park family genome, aka Pyjama family.

  25. I suddenly find myself craving bacon at 9:46pm… or, like a brownie with bacon on top? Geez.
    I love the look of cords and a chunky cardigan. Looks like I have to browse through Gap’s selection!

  31. your outfit seems very comfortable Shini! I love the boots and the cardigan combination, for boots tho I’m sure they won’t look good on me as it does on you. You have a perfect allure with very high heels.

    Hi Shini, I love these boots. We don’t have a Zara in Michigan, can you tell me how they fit? Did you order up/down from your usual size? Though, I actually have no idea what my “usual size” even is.. Thank you!

    I’m a UK5.5 (which is…I’m not sure, an US8, or 7.5? I’m a half-size for sure) So I always buy UK6 for boots keeping in mind I may wear thick socks in the winter – they fit perfectly and comfortably! SLIGHTLY loose but not at all noticeable when walking – I guess that means it runs true to size ;) Hope that helped!
