This emerald-green sweater is one of my latest purchases. It is quite simple and it would seem like there is nothing special about it but surprisingly I've got fond of this sweater and been wearing it quite often recently. Today I will show you two different looks featuring the sweater. One was for a short trip to the hills and another for an eating out in the evening.
Last weekend we went to a place called Namobuddha. It is up in the hills, around one hour drive from Kathmandu. According to a legend, Buddha, in one of his previous incarnations, fed himself to a starving tigress and her cubs and this is believed to happen exactly at this place. For such occasion I paired the sweater with the tribal skirt that you've already seen before. I figured that the print and style of the skirt would perfectly blend in with the surrounding hills and villages. Besides, it is of modest length, comfortable to walk in and pretty.
The place is very picturesque: beautiful panoramas of the hills, a Tibetan monastery, and a huge number of colourful prayer flags everywhere.
Now for the second look. Same sweater, different occasion. A bit more formal than a trip to the hills I would say - a dinner out. I changed the tribal skirt to the grey plaid one, wore different shoes, added patterned tights and a long silver necklace.Voila! A completely different look.
The restaurant was at the hotel so don't be surprised to see all those souvenirs on the background - tourists stuff.
While outside I wrapped myself in this grey printed shawl. Crazy pattern mixing - the tights, the skirt and the shawl - but somehow I find it working.
