Schi-foan (foan, foan, foan)





The little knitted skiers (Skiers!) on my new sweater reminded me I had some pictures of my own early days of skiing (like I say, I got the photobug from my Dad. Thanks Papa :) ).

As far as broad generalisations go I'd say most Austrian toddlers get on their first skis as soon as they're out of diapers (I remember watching in disbelief as a little kid wedel skied down a black slope). Or at least it used to be, I think really it 's been snow boards since the 90s. Oh well, I am old-fashioned already! :D



The song I am quoting in the post title is a pop tune from 1976 sung in a broad local dialect (lower Austrian) all about being stoked to go skiing :)


So here is to skiing, nostalgia and to cute sweaters that'll keep me warm this winter, snow or no!

Hairband: Camden market years ago
Sweater: Very
Skirt: Jitterbuggin' on Etsy

  2. Great sweater! It's good to wear things with built in nostalgia! I learned cross-country skiing when I was a kid but it didn't catch on and then we moved to a mountainous region. Still kind of like the idea of it, though!

  3. The only time I have been skiing was in Dubai! Yes, in a huge shopping mall - very strange but it didn't endear me to the past time - but I'd happy past the time in that cute jumper. so, so lovely.

    I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for the info on photo sizing ^U^

  10. You've done it again! Such a cute outfit. The sweater is darling and you've styled it in such a way that it doesn't appear to be too childish looking, which is difficult to do with such pieces (for me anyway).
