I suppose the easiest way would be to keep jewellery and other less casual accessories to a bare minimum. I would wear it with knitted tights and flat casual boots and maybe a parka or cardigan, just make sure all the accessories and other clothing is as casual as possible. I don't know how the dress fits but it might also be possible to add a knit on top completely covering the upper part so it looks like a jumper and skirt instead of a dress.

I wear button up shirts every day lately: I layer them with a cashmere cardigan, a blazer (I work at a bank...) and my winter coat on top.

Or if you don't want to wear anything on top of the shirt, maybe a merino underlayer, either a tank or long-sleeved top with a lower neckline?

I could use your help..

I thrifted this leotard when I visited my mother last week. It is really lovely, 100% soft wool and with a nice lace detail. I am not sure what to wear it with though. How would you style it? You can see a part of my wardrobe on my pinterest account (here)

If I do not come up with anything I will just use it for layering since it is so nice and warm, but I think it is too pretty not to be shown off.

^Will the proportions be way off if you paired it with one of your black skirts and stockings? Seems like the easiest way to wear it. Or maybe it is too cold?

I think it would be fine. Especially with my a-line skirt. I just have to get used to wearing fitted tops again. ATM it is too cold to wear that combination without a cardigan/little jacket/scarf too though, but I guess it wont stay cold forever.

Thanks for your advice

What about with your grey jeans and draped leather jacket?

Haha. I will take a picture for you as soon as possible, but really I have not been taking a lot of photos lately since I haven't been posting on my blog. Also my selfie spot in the apartment (I feel very hip having a spot in my home dedicated to such a thing..) is currently blocked my moving-boxes -.- I'll see what I can do. I can say however, that I am very happy with them! Also they are a bit nicer to wear currently than my ancle boots, since it is sooo cold.

Should we put some life into this thread again?

Today I wore:

- Grey slimfit jeans (Thrifted, February 2013)
- White peplum tee (NLY Trend, April 2014)
- Black ballet flats (Bloch, October or November 2012)
- Black quilt coat (Noa Noa, April 2014)
- MJ stam bag (2nd hand, June 2012)
- Prada Baroque sunglasses (July 2012 I think)

Betina: The coat just seems to get better and better!

I have come to the conclusion that as long as I get to wear cropped trousers and ballet flats, I am happy with my outfit no matter how derivative or repetitive it is. I think I have worn my orange Porsellis with cropped grey jeans for weeks now

This is what I have been wearing for the better part of this month:



Lagarconne, uniqlo, simplysolid, etsy, coggles, fashion.1stdibs, ensoie.us

^I KNOW, right?

I have the same tendency as you - lately it feels like I have mostly been wearing my black full skirt, stripe l/s blouse, flat ancle boots and navy down jacket.

Really love your combinations, especially the one with the stripe tee. I will definetly have to try that with my own wardrobe.
