Baby Blue Muppet Sweater and Polka Dot Pants

I felt like one of the Muppets today. The ice blue Cookie Monster? Sheila the Grouch?

  • Sweater - Topshop, consignment; purchased here on the weekend for $39.00
  • Pants - Tara Jarmon, consignment; last seen here (3rd outfit) with these same shoes
  • Shoes - Down to Earth Hadfield, Fluevog; last worn here (2nd outfit) on Sunday for grocery shopping

Although it's not the most flattering sweater I own, it may well be the most soft and comfortable one. The fluffy bits make it look inches bigger all over, so I went with skinny trousers to offset that.

I think I'm blending into the den walls!

Several people wanted to touch my sweater - it's as soft as angora without all those little sheddy hairs that end up in one's eyes.
It's bagged out over the day (I had a very physical day at work, moving people's desks around), so it's in the wash - hopefully that will tighten it up again a bit. Overall, for the first wear, I give it a big thumb's up!

The stuff:
I think I'm in love with floral + polka dots.

Pearl bling:
I didn't want to look overly casual in my oversized sweater, so I classed it up with my pearls. These aren't real ones, just nice department store ones.

  • Earrings - Aldo Accessories
  • Necklaces (there are two of them) - The Bay, c. 1987

I bought the necklace's around 1987 to wear as bracelets for a university friend's wedding. They were a bit pricey for me then (probably around $25.00 for both). I'm glad they've stood the test of time.


  1. Lovely ensemble, such a cute sweater, I would like to touch it too!, and love your accessorizing and your shoes!
    Fabulous floral and polka dots and pearls combo!

  2. Such a cute fuzzy sweater!! I have such a hard time with sweaters. They do not flatter me at all!!!

  3. Love your sweater in ice blue. How could I not having so many muppet relatives in my family already? I like how you added the pearls to class it up. Maybe I'll wear my dotted pants today too. Yours look so good.

  4. Polka dots and florals? Yes, please!

    Lovely outfit, I wanted to stroke the sweater through the screen!


  5. I have a couple of sweaters like these and they're so blooming comfortable. You look very cute today in fluffy top and these dotty trousers. Cute not muppet x
