Relaxed Geo and Fashion Decoration

A little bit ago, I did somewhat of an inventory of my wardrobe to sift through what to donate and what to keep—excluding jewellery I started to compile a list of knit and woven garments. Then, I analysed how many printed knitwear pieces I possessed.

I thought that I had a few Geo-printed cardigans, but it seems that I actually only own one. I was excited to wear this cardigan, although I wish it were long-sleeved instead of a three-quarter sleeve length. I wore this for running errands on a busy weekend, so comfy-chic, but warm was the goal.

For some reason, this chiffon scarf reminded me of my aunt who has loads of Bohemian jewellery, fabric, and curtains in an antique trunk that I used to love peruse. It’s not exactly because of the colour, but rather the length of the scarf and embellished tassels.

The wind loved this scarf, and it wasn't at all difficult to get a blowing effect—it was more difficult to capture the right angle. So, I gave up trying to unfold it as the wind blew strong, and just went with the flow. The result was a fun draped effect that was also blown in the wind.

I call this look the kitchen sink, although I think it somehow still works, even with all of the extra elements. I sort of felt nostalgic and brought back these trimmed bootstraps … remember those?

  10. I really like the geo-printed cardigan! This is one of my favourite prints! The scarf looks Bohemian maybe that's why it reminds you of your aunt's style! I have been inspired for outfits from my sister. There is a big difference between her and my style but I always somehow get inspired by her!

    I think we all get inspired by family members...Furthermore, I believe that for most women the first fashion rolemodels are their mothers, aunts and family members.


    You look great btw...the scarf is really lovely! I like the scarf too!

  22. I love your cardigan Madison! A striking geo print alongside the fact that it looks very cosy indeed. I Love they way you've managed to capture the movement of the scarf in the wind like this. :)

    Take care,

    The cardigan is lovely! Sometimes I prefer a three quarter sleeve because it makes washing your hands easier and it's easier to wear bracelets. P.S. I love that action shot! ;)

  32. love the B&W geometric pattern on your cardigan

  33. We are very sartorially different people, it seems - I don't think I own a single piece of print knitwear, apart from a single scarf. And that doesn't really count ;) My problem with prints is how often that seem to contain many different colours, and that's precisely why I love your cardigan - it has the dimension of a pattern, while still being beautifully neutral. I can't help myself, I have a bias ;)
    xox,

  34. This is such a beautiful cardigan (the one you linked to is also great). I see why you would liked it with longer sleeves even more but maybe a white shirt underneath could solve it for you.

    Beautiful outfit <3 love that you added a belt to accentuate your waist.

Das hab ich jetzt nicht verstanden haha. Ich muss auch meinen Kleiderschrank ausmisten. Hab einen wunderschönen Dienstag :D

    Liebe Madison, ich habe kürzlich auch meine Garderobe ausgeräumt :) Allerdings habe ich keinen so schönen Cardigan darin entdeckt, wie diesen hier! Er steht Dir sehr gut und der Wind hat den Schal wirklich geliebt! Ich hoffe immer auf Inspirationen aus meiner näheren Umgebung für meine Outfits, aber sehr oft leider vergeblich :) Ich wünsche Dir noch eine tolle Woche!

    Alles Liebe von Rena

  44. Isn't it weird when you think you have a loooot more of something, and it just turns out you have one? That almost makes me feel like I dont know what I own haha. And that sweater is awesome! I like that it's black and white- I usually see very colorful ones.

    I definitely identified with you being reminded of your aunt's antique trunk filled with treasures. i have a vintage hat box crammed with scarves that belonged mainly to one of my late great grandmothers and to her sisters. then i have her (and their) hats sitting on top of my bookcases, and their gloves, paired in a 60s vanity case. Although I never met them, i feel I've come to know them through these things.
    Beautiful scarf.

  54. True. Although, I buy mostly three-quarter, so I really wanted it longer, lol. Thanks Jen!

  55. Haha, yes it seems so--but that's the beauty in fashion--we can all have our own way of interpreting it. I love prints, so this worked for me, and I'm happy that it's a bit neutral, since I usually go for colour! Thanks for your thoughtful comment Cee. xx
