January is the coldest month of the year here in Kathmandu. But I am glad "winter" has finally arrived because firstly, the chilly period is so short here that there is no time for you to get really tired of it, you actually enjoy it; and secondly, that's the time I can show off my coats and woolen sweaters at last. This 100% lamb-wool textured knitted sweater in natural white I bought 7-8 years ago. It is one of those timeless things that one must have in one's wardrobe, it never goes out of fashion, you can wear it as long as it lasts.
I guess the sweater is inspired by the traditional Aran jumper: natural white colour, 100% wool, all those textured cables. Such jumpers are believed to be first developed on the Irish Aran Islands to protect fishermen from the hostile weather. The cable, an important part of the Aran islander's daily life, is said to be a wish for safety and good luck when fishing.
Here I'm wearing the sweater with two different skirts. The tribal print skirt you have seen in the Reversed Cinderella story" post. There I wore it with a traditional Indian blouse choli, but as you can see it looks good paired with a sweater as well. The Shiva-Parvati bag I thought would be a nice complement to the look.
Another skirt that I wore the sweater with is a blue maxi skirt. Love its joyous floral print.
Look at Funny - enjoying the photo-session no less than me
With both looks I wore these wooden earrings. Their colour complements the natural white of the sweater very well.
