Cozy + Warm = Fall Uniform!

For a girl who loves skirts, I just noticed that I am sadly lacking in that department when it comes to options for the colder seasons.. what is with that?  I definitely need to go shopping, ASAP! 🙂

I’m off to French class in 10 minutes, but I thought I would share my outfit of the day, as it has all my ‘essentials’ for dressing in the Autumn –perfect for sharing with IFB Project #18 — What’s Your Fall Uniform.  For me, it is this list:

♥ Cute, warm coat –preferably with big buttons? Check!

♥ Soft cashmere?  Check!

Smart Jeans (may be swapped with cute tweed-y/houndstooth-y skirts) + the requisite ballet flats (may also be swapped with boots, but I haven’t found the pair, yet…)?  Check!

Et voila, my autumn uniform.

Autumn UniformI tend to steer away from turtlenecks, because I feel they don’t do any wonders for my figure (aka neck) but I couldn’t resist this one… I love the gradation of black to charcoal with silvery stripes in-between.
Smart Coat!

J’adore Soïa & Kyo coats.  I am a bit regretful that I didn’t get it in the houndstooth while it was still available, but I’m pretty sure my coats are turning into a massive collection, with or without it, so I’ll live I suppose. 😛

Coat: Soïa & Kyo ‘ Margo’

Top: Hayden cashmere turtleneck

Jeans:  J Brand pencil leg in black

Shoes: Joe Fresh ballet flats

Watch: Citizen Eco-Drive


Well, I must be off!  Stay cozy!! xoxo ♥
