Blowin' In the Wind


Wearing: J.Crew cardigan (on sale), J.Crew scarf, Jack Wills skirt (suede skirt here), Stuart Weitzman boots (40% off), Saint Laurent bag

Bob Dylan was indeed right when he soulfully sang/talked his famous 1960s song, the answer is blowin' in the wind. Especially when you are standing on a bridge wearing a scarf, whilst it is windy. 

It only seemed fitting to coordinate this with Dylan as my denim mini certainly is some of the attire preppy schoolgirls were wearing during said time. As the 60s and 70s revival has launched a thousand ship(ments) of button front denim and suede skirts 'round the world, I as well followed the face (i.e. skirt). 

To play the schoolgirl role well, a cardigan was the ideal supporting role. Except, when I think of cardigans, flashbacks of itchy wool and awkwardly fitting shoulders cloud my memory. So, I thought to myself, how does one sass up a cardigan? The answer? Well, it isn't blowing in the wind, instead it is when you pull a little switch-a-roo. 

To top things off, we fast-forward into the 70s (Bob was still around), with a matching scarf- author's note: not bought at the same time as sweater-, and middle-parted hair.
