Fair Isle Fun

I am really enjoying fair isle sweaters, something about me in a ski chalet hanging out. Now I went skiing this year, in February, while I was in Banff. I hadn't skied in 20 years and just got up one morning and decided I would go skiing alone while my husband was in a series of committee meetings. I didn't  really ski, I tumbled down the hill and bruised up my body. After the third attempt (being a parent we tell our kids to try something more than once) I took off my skis and walked down the rest of the mountain.

Anyway, I still love the "ski chalet" look.

Its What I Wore Wednesdays, so head on over to the Transatlantic Blonde to see what other bloggers are wearing.

  5. It really is all about how you look on the ski hill (or in our case the chalet) isn't it? Love the sweater!

  6. I've been obsessed with fair isle sweaters ever since I was a little girl. I got a really special one for Christmas one year and have never forgotten it! You look SO cute in this outfit. Really great look. I'm following you now.

  8. Love your sweater! :) I wish I could try skiing too...but we always miss doing it due to lack of time.

  9. Adore those pants! :)

    Just stumbled upon your cute blog - love it! Now following you via GFC :)



  10. Very cute! I've never been snow skiing. Water skiing yes. Snow skiing, not so much. If it involves being cold I'm not really into it. :)

  11. Such a great, informal look. Maybe even my favourite of yours up till now. I love everything about it. And I now have an urge to go out and get me some fair isle sweaters. Even though it's nearly 4am here. Don't ask me what I'm doing up. I have no idea myself.

  12. I thought I was the only one to take off my skis and walk down LOL. Plus I hate being cold.

    Love this sweater though : )


  13. Total "Pin-Worthy" outfit! Love the sweater with the lighter jeans too :)

  15. Just catching up on your blog and obviously I am a fan of this style of sweater as I am sporting one today! I am liking how they seem to be a bit more chic than the versions form childhood.
