What I Wore: Acne Studios Raya Oversized Cardigan

25 July 2016

Acne Studios Oversized Cardigan

After returning home from my amazing 3 week family holiday, after doing all the laundry, getting over the jet lag and falling a bit sick… guess what I discovered?

I couldn’t fit back into my skinny jeans haha!

I put on 3kgs while I was away!

I had to dig out and wear my old, “slim” jeans, which were also a bit snug at the waist.

It was all the home cooked country meals, the fresh scones, the apples pies, the crusty breads, the pancakes, the beef pies, the meatballs, the roast chicken and gravy… I enjoyed myself immensely!! It was soooo worth it haha.

Perhaps my photo doesn’t show it, but I went for a run the other day and I wobbled in new places all over my body – my tummy, hips, thighs and bottom… oops!

Thank goodness, it’s winter in Australia, so I can just hide under some layers while I sort out my eating :)

Acne Studios Oversized Cardigan

My new Raya Oversized Cardigan by Acne Studios (courtesy of Shopbop) is just right for extra layering. It’s gorgeously fluffy, snuggly, roomy and light enough to wear between seasons.

Even though it’s a cardigan, I wear it like a light coat. A long coat!

I’m a Size 6 and I bought the Size XS.

In fact, it was a bit nippy this morning, so I was wearing 3 layers under it – a BambooBody fitted tank top, a Sportsgirl boyfriend t-shirt, and a Country Road black slim cardigan.

I’m also wearing black jeans from Cotton On, white high top sneakers from Ecco Shoes and handbag from Witchery.

I took these photos with a tripod and self-timer, in an empty carpark, in between sorting out my car insurance and work meeting, because I’m waaaaay too shy/mortified/embarrassed to have a proper photographer snap me in real life haha!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!
