Tick tock! I instantly fell head-over-heels for this cheeky clock sweater. I’m kind of crazy when it comes to time. I absolutely hate being late, one of my biggest pet peeves. I’m also fascinated by the concept that time never stops… We can only move one direction, and that’s forward. The concept is simple, but there is so much more to it. Why can’t we travel backwards? It’s also crazy to think that even while you’re asleep/ not feeling well / no longer here, time goes on… (Not to be morbid or anything…)
Anyway, this isn’t supposed to be some sort of existential post disguised as a fashion blog, just a little food for thought. I wanted to wear this clock sweater during New York Fashion Week, but the weather wouldn’t allow it. Determined to start wearing sweaters, I paired this quirky, chunky knit with a short, trumpet mini skirt.
Every time I look at this sweater, I think of one of my favorite movies, Alice in Wonderland. If you follow me on instagram (which you should 🙂 you’d know that I have a penchant for Disneyland. This sweater makes me feel like a little girl again, so I wanted to accessorize accordingly. Given that pastels are on-trend for fall, like lilac, and that they feel somewhat elementary (I bet even Anna Wintour feels like a little girl in light pink,) I decided to pink accessories in candy-colored hues. The shoes are new, from Zara, and to be quite honest I wasn’t quite sure about the purchase when I opened them. I hadn’t worn them until now, but I’m kinda digging them. I only own two pastel bags – a dusty pink 3.1 Phillip Lim clutch and this vintage Chanel bag. I settled on Chanel because it too makes me feel like I’m young and free and dressing up in someone else’s clothes.
I hope you like this outfit, I’ve put together a gallery of items you can shop to get the look. I’d also love to hear from you, so leave me a comment if you feel so inclined – it’d make my day! xx A
