Wasn't thinking of doing an outfit post, but I felt so cheered up by the red and navy stripes of my sweater that I, er, in a moment of self-admiration, took a picture of myself in the fitting room while windowshopping with my friend during lunch. I get it from my family. We are a shamelessly vain and confident tribe.
I wore this sweater today because I'm still feeling inspired by nautical charm and thoughts of travelling and adventure and breakfast in foreign coffee shops. And also because I read a very good article about travelling in Madagascar on The New York Times that made me want to pack up and go. Read it here.
Edit: I just saw this picture in the January issue of US Vogue. I think one think I'd like to do is to incorporate bright colours like this in a very bare and simple way into my wardrobe, from time to time. Maybe today's sweater is a start.
