On moon phases & being no fun…
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: oversized jumpers are one of my ultimate wardrobe staples. Seriously – I wrote a whole post as a love letter to them once! This Killstar jumper is fab for keeping cosy – the fleece-lined sleeves reach past my fingertips and I feel all cocooned and snug. I absolutely adore the design as well – moon phases are beautiful, and it’s fun trying to pick out my friends/family’s star signs on the print! In that way I guess it’s a bit of a conversation piece too. I always find that my friends or work colleagues that haven’t seen it before get me to stand there while they pick out their particular moon phase!
Styling-wise, I paired the sweater with a patent skirt underneath, just to add a little peek of shine and a different texture. Then I added my oversized fishnet tights (with sheer skin-colour tights underneath so I wouldn’t freeze!), and ‘no fun’ socks… because it’s okay to be not-so-fun some days! These socks are now one of my running jokes for those nights where I don’t fancy staying out, instead preferring to go home and curl up in bed with pizza :3 (lame, right?). HEY – it may be less fun to some, but it’s fun to me anyway!
That’s why I love these socks so much. Everyone has differing definitions of fun, however as long as what you love harms no-one then I don’t see any trouble at all. Go ahead and have an early night! Look after your body… or eat a giant pizza if you want to! Spend your weekend playing vintage Nintendo games (I MAY be projecting now), or spend it cleaning your room. Make organisational lists (again with the projecting, Olivia…)! Just do what you think is fun, who cares if others don’t always agree ^.^
What do you love to do that others might consider ‘no fun’? Organisational lists and early nights are kind of my thing at the moment – clearly I’m an 80-year-old trapped in a 23-year-old body!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend <3

Wow, this jumper looks soo amazing!! Love the whole look! How is the weather in UK? I hope not as cold as in Holland haha :P. May I ask, which size have you ordered of this jumper? I also thought of buying this jumper, but I wasn’t sure which size I should choose. Thank you 🙂
Thanks so much Evelien! It’s got super chilly in the past week now – definitely time to wrap up in this jumper (but maybe with jeans haha) Hope it’s not too cold in Holland though!

This is great. I love moon stuff. I also find organizing fun & lists. When I stressed out or upset, I start cleaning or organizing.
