Hi there! I'm writing to you from a very rainy and brisk Auckland. I drafted this new top earlier from another of my patterns and made it up today. I much prefer my knit tops loose fitting, probably because I am slight. It's sewn in a linen jersey, which is rather divine. And with a few ever-so-slight adjustments it'll be right. I seem to be wearing something in this style every day this Winter, with the shoes being either my khaki desert boots, cobalt Bensimons or (as of late) Simple boots (a bit like these but hi-top and with dusty pink accents).
They're the first pair of Simple shoes I've owned, and they are ridiculously comfy to the point I sometimes need to look down to make sure I'm not wearing slippers out in public! I'm now very keen to explore them more... I think generally speaking I dress pretty androgynously, again maybe because of my frame? Though that's not to say I don't love a really pretty dress too, I am just more inclined to put on something like this.
