Fair Isle Fairy

Whenever I get a new Fair Isle sweater, my first instinct is to pair it with a tulle skirt. I'm not sure why I'm inclined to do this, but there's something I like about the juxtaposition of a more casual sweater with the dressiness of the tulle skirt. I first did this combination last year, which prompted my husband to call me a Nordic Fairy! Looking back at that post, I can see that this outfit, save for the shoes and a different style Fair Isle sweater, is almost exactly the same. I actually wore this outfit on New Year's Day, as I thought the tulle skirt and glitter shoes would add a festive touch. Next year, I am sure that I will probably have a new Fair Isle sweater and a new spin on this quirky combo.
