EF #11: My Style, My Sweater

I am not a fashion blogger, but I like to read some fashion blogs. I never tried to write anything about fashion because I don’t think I am fashionable. However, I will try my best to write my first fashion related topic in my blog. It’s not that I want it, but it is part of BEC’s EnglishFriday challenge, which is to make a post about OOTD or Outfit Of The Day.

Back then when I hadn’t got any child, I really like to wear sweater. It wasn’t the thick one, so i didn’t feel hot wearing it. Now, i never wear sweater anymore because I am still breastfeeding. Instead, I wear buttoned shirt or very loose shirt to make it easier to breastfeed. Somehow I miss wearing sweater. That’s why I chose my old picture to represent my outfit of THAT day, and the style in the picture below is sooo me.


Sweater. One thing that I like from wearing sweater is that it doesn’t show your body shape. It also still looks fashionable although it is loose. I like to wear ones with interesting pattern like this Argyle pattern on my green sweater. Argyle firstly used by Scottish for their socks, but now it is widely use for cardigan or vest.

This sweater used to be my sister’s but then she gave it to me (because i kept wearing it haha). She bought it in 2011 for about Rp 108.000. I don’t know what kind of fabric it is, but it’s still in a good condition now although I wash it using a top load washing machine.

Earth, natural colors. I feel comfortable wearing natural colors because it is easy to combine, and it is quite effective to avoid saltum. Saltum or salah kostum is an Indonesian slang that describes a wrong outfit that someone wears, although for me it also explains a condition where you wear the wrong combination of clothes. Hence, it doesn’t look good.

The veil, skirt, and shoes are light brown –one of my favorite colors for outfit. The veil was a regular paris veil, while the skirt was a gift from my mom. If i’m not mistaken, she bought it in Karita (a moslem  wear store in Jogja) and it was not even Rp 100.000. I don’t have the skirt anymore since it was to tight for my standard (the shape was like a long pencil skirt) and it has a calf-lenght opening that showed my whole calf if I walked.

Flat shoes. I really feel comfortable wearing flat shoes. All of my shoes are flat ones, except the one for attending wedding party. The reason why I like them is because I am quite tall and I am a fast walker. The shoes I wore were Connexion, which I bought for under Rp 200.000 at Matahari Dept. Store. Shoes there are often on sale, so I like to shop for shoes there.

The last one, woven sling bag. I like sling bag because it is light and i don’t usually bring a lot of stuff (until I have a baby and it all changed).  It also doesn’t hurt our shoulder if we have a long walk. This bag was my sister’s that whe bought in Malioboro for only Rp 35.000.

So, that’s a bit about my classic style. What’s yours?

  2. We have the same fashion sense, Mbak. And yes, I leave those sweaters since breastfeeding. Besides, wearing sweater in the middle of Jakarta's afternoon is quite an effort haha. But it's comfy to wear it at night ;)
