Nordic Fairy?

My favorite thing about getting dressed in the morning is the anticipation of what my husband is going to say about my outfit. He's very creative when it comes to commenting on or describing what I am wearing. In the case of today's outfit, he walked in and said, "you look like a Nordic fairy." I would surmise that this assessment of my outfit was due to the fact that I have a Fair Isle sweater on top and a puffy cream colored tulle skirt on the bottom, in addition to my pointy silver shoes. Well, the description made me both laugh and cringe.

Because this Fair Isle sweater from J. Crew has so many colors in it, I was a little stumped as to what bag to pair with it. When picking bags, believe it or not, I sometimes ask my husband for advice. In this instance, he told me to go with this lavender satchel type bag because it completed the "Heidi"-like aspects of the ensemble. Not being one to argue, I took his advice. Don't you just love husbands?

  3. And you do just look like a Nordic Fairy! I love that he said that. And great choice he had for the bag too. Lavender is perfect with the outfit!

  4. That is a pretty accurate description of your outfit, but in such a great way! Um, I really wish I could be a Nordic Fairy, that sounds so romantic and colorful LOL, which this outfit totally is! I love the skirt and the top and purse match perfectly. Go hubs for picking out the bag. I hope you are having a great week so far my beautiful friend! XO -Kim

  5. Oh how much I love everything in this outfit especially the sweater, bag and skirt. Is that skirt from Kohl's current? I love it. And since I tend towards bold colors and patterns like you, my husband often gives his two cents, too. LOL But hey you are the prettiest, girliest Nordic Fairy and your hubby's description made for a great blog title.

    Sorry I have been MIA but I have been so busy. I am baaaack!

  6. Your husband nailed it! This outfit is so adorable. Anyone who's seen my winter Pinterest board, knows that I have a thing for Fair Isle sweaters. This is such a cute one...the colors are different, delicate, and beautiful. And the accessories! You have styled this outfit so well. (Kudos to the hubs on the handbag advice...good job!)
