Taking style photos in the sub-arctic is a challenge not only because of the light conditions, but also because of the cold. In these photos, you really see that I am feeling cold and uncomfortable presenting my indoor outfit outside for the photo shot. It is even worse for the photographer as he has to touch the cold camera.

I was wearing my boyfriend cable-knit sweater with a long-sleeved T-shirt and underwear, my plaid wool skirt, over-the-knee-boots, and Gucci belt for adding interest and shape, and to get the proportions right. You saw these items before in the outfit posts at the links.

For the commute I added my shearling motorcycle jacket, winter white beret, and my fuchsia 3.1 Philip Lim bag. I just love the combination of brown and a shade of pink. For additional outfit ideas with these items see the posts at the links.

How do you wear your oversize or boyfriend cable-knit sweater? Did you buy it the way or did you pick it from your significant other’s closet? Just curious. Mine is from by hubby’s closet, but with his permission.
