Living in a busy and cosmopolitan city I started to get that feeling of stress when Friday gets closer and there's that need to have that apartment in the mountains or the beach. Well, in lack of that wooden mountain house, I do spend almost all my weekends visiting the family in my hometown, a place I used to find boring which I now describe as calm. It is surrounded by green mountains and has that fresh air you get when you step in a village.
After the whole week running on heels in one of the busiest areas of Barcelona
and living surrounded by high buildings and the sound of cars, people and so on, I recover all my energy in this town with my parents and brother
-who happens to have the cutest dog around
(may be the main reason I keep visiting the town). This week has been definitely cold and I got to wear a cozy cardigan by Gamiss
I ordered not long ago to pair up with Ekko, since it has some fur (faux) on it.
Apart from doing my blog thing and editing drafts during great part of the weekend, I always try to visit this one since it gives me a sense of innocence and fun we all lost at some point of our lives
. Ekko is now a teenager but he has that puppy face that wins me over! I cannot get tired of those ears and dark face and specially his soft hair! Now my furry friend looks good and innocent but he is a damn terminator when it comes to shoes and specially if you have something he finds interesting on your hands (mental note: do not wear black/white again or dress with thighs when visiting him).
These days are all about browns, beiges, goldens and all shades of brown you can imagine when it comes to my outfits. When I wrote about Gamiss, an online fashion store that offers a wide range of styles and prices, I also ordered some items and many friends loved what the site offers. I decided to wear this faux fur cardigan, which was also available in black (and honestly is still on my mind so who knows...), and I of course went for the grey one.
This polyester cardigan comes in one size only but I always wear European 36/ S and fitted perfectly. Ideal for these fall days, it goes with any casual outfit you want to wear to the office or a casual date with friends, or you can choose to wear it with a dress and heels/wedges.
I combined it with a green casual shirt by Tommy Hilfigher with ochre NYC letters on it, and dark jeans by Mango, which are outfit saves most of the times. Then I tried to add some attitude to the outfit with leopard print and black booties which take all the attention if seen from behind.
You can find this Faux Fur neck oversized cardigan here.
When I first discovered Gamiss
and told my friends about it I thought they would just check it once on their phones and forget about it, but that evening I met one of my friends and she told me she had spent all afternoon browsing on their website and creating a list of items she would later purchase since all prices were super affordable
, and that, ladies, is so true. There are prices lower than € 5!
Ok so you cannot try it on, but who would not risk it when being offered those prices? Besides, everything I ordered was TRUE TO SIZE, so even better!
What I really liked apart from the color was the collarless border with faux fur,
adding some cozyness and simple but stylish details to what would be otherwise, an ordinary cardigan. So... am I also Ekko's furry friend?
