The Uniform (what I've been wearing lately)
I've been wearing some sort of variation of this outfit steadily for the past week or so. When pressed for time and hopping on the freeway from work to school and vice versa, a simple, comfortable yet put together outfit is my go-to. My key components have been:
- flat over the knee leather boots
- slightly oversized (and super warm) sweater
- some sort of statement scarf
- black leggings/slim black trousers
Here's one of my favourite mixes, with pieces that I am sure you have seen in previous posts.
My sweater is by
, from a collection a couple of years ago. It's cashmere and ridiculously warm. It is no longer available unfortunately but I highly recommend the brand Vince for knitwear. They are pricey but they wear beautifully and can be worn for multiple seasons.
I also found a very similar sweater style on sale online (here's the link) in a variety of colours also made of cashmere and at 50% off if you are interested. I'd probably buy it 1 or 2 sizes larger since I love oversized knits but that's just my suggestion :)
Scarf - Zara (last year's collection)
Leggings - Only Hearts (I've blogged about them. They're the "So Fine" black long leggings and they are my holy grail leggings, if there ever was such a thing!)
Boots - I LOVE THESE. A black pair of flat leather over the knee boots can do no wrong. Mine are by Tahari and are no longer available but I found a super similar pair at a great price by Report here. Some other beautiful similar pairs also here, here and here.
As you can tell, I have a small obsession with over the knee boots at the moment. I saw some droolworthy Stuart Weitzman ones in store the other day, but that's another story. Sigh.
I hope your week is going by quickly, I sure hope mine will. I have next week off from school and I have a trip to New York City that I planned for next weekend. Exciting times ahead!
