So Basic, but So Good...

The good thing about cold weather is that you can hide a lot under cute outerwear. Your sweater can be nearing the end of its wearable life (guilty...) but as long as you're wearing a bright scarf and a well-fitting jacket - nobody will notice!

This week's "Ten Take Fall" Collab asks "What are your must-have/staple items for Fall?"

It seems like most bloggers have a specific uniform for Fall - cozy outerwear, blanket scarves and tall boots. There is some variation - rainboots versus over-the-knee suede boots, moto jacket versus thick cardigans, but the overall look is the same. Sticking to this uniform is a little bit basic but it works for me! Here's a closer look at my choices:


1) Outerwear - this year I'm loving fitted Moto faux leather jackets - I have this style in black and another in pink. Although mine is from Romwe, it's identical in style to the ones available at ZARA.

2) Blankets Scarves - I'm glad the blanket scarf trend is still going strong this year (I've stocked up like crazy) but I'm also not surprised. Blanket scarves are so practical - they weigh nothing but are SO warm and cozy. I always travel with at least 3 blanket scarves - my kiddies and I use them as wraps on the plane! Click here for different ways to style a blanket scarf (including wearing it as a poncho) and here for tips on how to tie it

 3) Boots - I'm loving these brightly coloured Kamik rainboots (compared them to my Hunter boots here). I was worried that red boots would be too bright, and that they wouldn't match the rest of my Fall wardrobe - but they're surprisingly versatile! I've also picked up these over-the-knee boots and will be sharing outfit pics with them soon!

  1. Those are really great red boots!! And I agree. Blanket scarves are even better for travel because of all their great practical uses on top of being extra warm and nice to look at!

  5. I love how you break down the "Basic Blogger" fall style. And it's true! But you also do a great job of putting your own spin on the basics with the way you accessorize. That moto jacket looks SO good on you!

  8. I love my leather riding boots for fall. Got mine in Italy years ago and still going strong. I also love my sweater jackets as I refuse to wear a coat until it snows :D

    You look adorable in the combo you are wearing :) I love how you played the red shades.

    I must be the only person who does not get the blanket scarf craze. I'm from Ottawa (so def cold) but the one blanket scarf I do have, I only wear in the air plane when I travel internationally.

    1. LOL - It's too funny about not getting the blanket scarf craze...I think I love them because I get cold very easily - and as long as I have a blanket scarf, I know I can cover up completely and stay warm...and if I feel hot, I just let it hang down on either side and it's not heavy so I don't even know it's there - it's like insurance for me :-)
