Ma tenue de ce dernier samedi de novembre ressemblait un peu à un millefeuille avec plusieurs couches de vêtements superposés. La météo commande et je n'ai pas trouvé mieux pour naviguer entre l'alternance des intérieurs surchauffés et des rues de plus en plus fraiches et venteuses.

L'idée de cette tenue de week-end est partie des boots fourrées et de la chemise à carreaux. Avec leur côté un peu rustique, j'ai eu envie de me fabriquer un look tiré d'une interprétation très personnelle du style trappeur/ gentlewoman à la campagne. 

Du coup, j'ai joué avec les codes vestimentaires usuels de cette panoplie: du jean, de la laine, du cuir, du carreaux, des matières simples et naturelles pour une allure sobre et fonctionnelle.
J'ai donc ressorti mon vieux cardigan à coudières en cuir, mon bon vieux jean. Pour terminer par une veste en laine à la coupe faussement classique et une besace pour arpenter la ville en toute liberté.

My outfit for the last saturday of November is quite a millefeuille cake, lots of layers. Well the weather commands and I didn't find a better way yet to navigate between the cold and windswept streets and over heated indoors. 

The inspiration behind this week-end look came from the plaid shirt and the shearling lined boots which both share a rustic feel so I went for an interpretation of the country gentlewoman/trapper act... 

As a result I played with the usual sartorial codes attached to the look:  leather, wool, jeans, plaid. Simple and natural materials for a low-key and functional allure.
I therefore reached for my old elbow leather patch cardi, favorite jeans, to top it all off a falsely classic cut wool jacket and a saddle bag to stride along.

7 commentaires:

  1. That cardigan is a great piece, not only for layering, but the asymmetric closure and elbow patches let it stand out on its own.

  2. The cardigan and the blazer look perfect together and definitely lend to a rustic look without being too unkempt. I really like the leopard socks peeking out of the boot as well.

  3. Thanks Prêt! That cardi was one of my first win on ebay years ago, it's pretty old but still holding up well. I had put it aside for awhile but I've recently rediscovered its potential.

    Thanks Austere! I was in the mood for that leopard trend but couldn't see myself wearing it as a big piece so I prefer this little (almost unseen)touch for now.

  4. You look great! I had that shirt, but in the large tunic version. It was just too big for me, so I sold it. I still love the fabric.

  5. I love your outfit with the lots of layering! It's a great way to protect against the cold :) Especially the cardigan with the pads is very special.

  6. looking slick even when casual lady!

  7. Garderoben: I love the shirt's fabric too. It seems like you and I have had our share of IM clothes ebay swaps! You have something Marant I used to own and vice-versa! :))

    Thanks Chouchou!

    Merci Nancy!
