Pullover! - No it's a cardigan...*

I have good outerwear options but lately I've been living in my trench. Mostly because it provides good protection against the unpredictable and tempestuous current weather but at some point during this week I got so fed up with it, had to give it a rest. 

I figured the best alternative would be a parka but again it's gotten so much use already that I immediately set it aside and went for my big navy cardigan. Not ideal when it rains a lot and you add in the wind factor but manageable with the accessory of the season, the big bell umbrella.    

Seriously though, it'd be nice to be able to wear actual summer clothes... Maybe next week?? 

Below, the "work" version with a dark grey blouse, navy and white striped pants, taupe loafers and red tote bag.

Cardigan : Isabel Marant Etoile - blouse : Cos - pants/pantalon: Zara - loafers/mocassins: Jonak - bag/ sac: Céline 

And for the week-end, stripes again but on my t-shirt this time to accompany a silver and off white pleated skirt and slip-on sneakers.

cardigan + tshirt : Isabel Marant Etoile - skirt: H&M - slip-on sneakers / baskets: Eden Shoes - bag: Céline

* Quote from the movie "Dumb and dumber" which I actually never watched - I can't stand Jim Carrey's theatrics, except in The Truman Show and Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind - but this scene (here) always make me chuckle.

  1. The cardigan has such a great fit - sometimes long cardigans just make me look like i'm in pajamas but yours has a nice "presence", if that makes any sense.

    1. Thanks Lin! I like a little slouch in my clothes but the older I get the more I realize that a little structure and balance are key to avoid looking like a total slob.

  2. It seems to me like the silver skirt would be loud but it looks really elegant here. The last time I tried on a silver piece of clothing I looked like a microwaveable frozen snack (we have little hand pizza rolls in the US called Hot Pockets.)

    1. The skirt is not all metallic with off white panels so that helps avoiding the foil food wrapper or space-ish costume effect! haha!
