Casual with Fair Isle

How to wear Fair Isle print

Some people consider Fair Isle an old fashioned pattern, but in my opinion, it is more like classic and preppy. I actually find it very fun, mainly when it's mixed with other classic prints like leopard (as I wore it here) and stripes, as I decided to wear it today.
This is a very casual outfit that I wore a few weeks ago to run errands before Christmas. To get things done around town comfortably, I tend to wear flat shoes or sneakers with boyfriend jeans and since the weather was cold, I decided to layer this baggy look with a military style coat and my wool nordic scarf, which print is perfect for winter.

Algunas personas consideran Fair Isle un estampado avejentado, pero en mi opinión, es clásico y de muy buen gusto. De hecho, me parece muy divertido y sobre todo cuando se mezcla con otros estampados clásicos como ser el leopardo (como me lo puse aquí) y el rayado, así como decidí llevarlo hoy.
Este es un conjunto muy casual que me puse hace unas semanas para hacer unos mandados antes de la Navidad. Para moverme cómodamente y ligeramente alrededor de la ciudad, la mayoría de veces tiendo a usar zapatos planos o zapatillas con boyfriend jeans y ya que el clima estaba frío, me decidí acompañar este look holgado con un abrigo de estilo militar y mi bufanda de  estampado Fair Isle, el cual es perfecto para el invierno. 

Travel Fox Sneakers

If you are as old as I am, maybe you will remember Travel Fox sneakers from back in the 80s. They were famous for their comfort, quality and for the risky advertisements on magazines. Anyway, people keep asking me where I got these sneakers, but it's too bad that I can't help them to get a pair just like this…maybe Ebay or even Amazon for used styles. The new Travel Fox are no longer made in Italy, but they are still pretty cool.
