ootd: a very warm fall

Dear fall weather…um, where are you? I’m pretty sure I was supposed to be able to wear cute sweaters and tall boots by now.

Till that happens, hooray for this beautiful burgundy top! It checks the boxes for both fall colours and warm-weather dressing, and look at the adorable sleeve details (which Adam had to tie for me, by the way):

ootd: my casual uniform

July 25, 2016  |  Outfit of the Day  |  4 Comments

A draped jersey dress + sneakers + a military jacket is kind of my uniform. I can’t think of a more foolproof combo for days when I need to head out in a hurry, want to look casual but decent, and can’t be bothered to put on pants.

I’ve amassed quite a collection of jersey dresses over the years, some better than others. This is one of my favourites – an oldie but goodie from H&M that I’m amazed hasn’t given up its ghost yet. Unfortunately I can’t point you to this exact dress as it’s long gone from shelves, but at the bottom of this post I’ve linked a few jersey dresses with a similar vibe.

And by the way, sorry about the lack of colour here. These photos were impromptu, and Adam only had his Leica Monochrom with him.

ootd: dressed-down pencil skirt

Casual Pencil Skirt2

I love wearing pencil skirts casually with T-shirts and – ideally – sneakers. Of course, having fairly stubby legs means that I kind of need to wear heels instead, but it’s not all bad. There’s really nothing like a pair of heels to make you immediately feel at least 30% more accomplished and put-together, and some days you just need that boost, know what I mean?

PS I’m a trend-adverse clothing hoarder so (save for my sunnies) nothing I own is new or current, but I’ve tried my best to link to some similar pieces at the bottom of this post.
