Why must sweaters be scratchy? How much fabric softener do I need to marinate this big lug in in order to not make me feel like I have a second bout of chicken pox. And you know I'm just going to keep wearing it because it's so perfectly grandpa-looking. These are my big qualms in life.

Also, how amazing is this fringe skirt from Lulu*s? Prettaaay amazing.

That is all. #lazypost

  8. that is seriously the coolest skirt ever. I LOVE it. It is bad that I tried to find your booties in Macy's this past weekend? Haha! And try washing your sweaters with johnson and johnson's baby shampoo (hand wash) and hang to dry. It Helps!

  10. Cute sweater! I hate when sweaters are scratchy...I usually wind up being a furnace because I'm worn a long sleeve shirt underneath the sweater because it's scratchy! AH! There is no happy medium!!!

    Oooo that skirt is cute too!! =)

  12. Ahh, seriously sweet skirt! It's a cool take on the feather ones, and I'm sure much easier to wear (you probably don't have to worry about it going bald). Awesome!

  15. Love the sweater and skirt! I always get tired of trying to soften sweaters and just wear a thin long sleeve shirt under it. But if you figure out how to make them soft, please share with the rest of us :)

  16. The skirt is fun! I'm really loving colored tights... and the mustard is a great color. Plus, I'm always a fan of skirts/dresses with booties.

  17. I am loving that skirt!! And I agree, sweaters are ridiculously scratchy. I find them to be quite uncomfortable, so while they are adorable, I rarely pull one on. You look so cute! :)

  21. Ah, snow! This skirt is really amazing, what a cool piece. As usual, I'm crazy jealous of your ability to pull off EVERYTHING. Not fair, Marlen.

  22. i noticed the fringed skirt immediately, that and the snow. were you freezing in it marlen? i don't like itchy sweaters. they go in the donate pile. actually living in texas, we don't wear sweaters very often. i think i wore my fist one this winter yesterday.

  23. Wow, I love the colours in your outfit. Is that snow I see? I'm so jealous, I'm sitting in 43 degree heat as we speak :(

  24. Omgsh, that fringe skirt is definitely amazing! Like times ten amazing!
    Haha, and as for the Tagalog phrase, I asked my mom, but she's not sure what panai is haha. Maybe its the dialect your cousin knows (there are SO many dialects in the Philippines!) but the way she'd say it in Tagalog would be: "ako ang siota ni Marc"
    I hope you get to go visit - its such an amazing country! And of course, you've GOT to blog about it when you go :D

  25. I love that sweater! You should definitely continue to wear it...i'm sure you can find something to fix the itchiness. (:

  26. I love how you braved snow for these pictures! I totally get what you mean about jumpers, I can only wear them with long sleeves underneath.

  27. Your blog is so charming, I have to say, there's something very Alexa Chung about you and this outfit, I especially love the little touches like the fringing on the skirt and bow, especially those tights! They're such a warm tone! I understand the sweaters issue haha, the price of looking stylish right. Thank you for your comment on my blog :)

  28. I used to use vinegar to soften up my scratchy school jumpers! They were such nightmares ... but the vinegar totally worked, which is something i didn't expect, what with my not having a single Martha Stewart-esque bone in my body. Really into that fringe skirt, by the way. The fringier the better, I always say!
