Work outfit inspired by a brown and pink scarf
This outfit of the day was inspired by the pink and brown color combination of this Louis Vuitton scarf that I found in a consignment store in town for just $5. Some times I am really astonished what treasures people have in their closets. Well, one woman trash is another woman’s treasure.
How I created the look
I picked items from my closet that have colors that occur in the scarf’s print. Since it has gotten cold again, I had to bundle up. Thus, a cashmere sweater in pink like the flowers on the scarf with a brown long sleeve T-shirt underneath plus my leather sheath are a perfect combination with otk-boots and tights. To add extra insulation I wear two pairs of tights and a half slip.
For some interest and extra insulation of my neck I added this Louis Vuitton silk scarf. The scarf and its print ties the color combination of the outfit all together. The result is a posh work outfit.Use the colors of a scarf's print as inspiration for the color combination of your outfit. #styletip Click To Tweet
How I wore the pieces of this outfit before
When you are already reading the blog of a while you may remember the mock neck pink cashmere sweater that I wore before with three shades of pink in the post at the link.

Styling your outerwear is a Must
For the commute I added my new burgundy motorcycle coat. You have seen the coat with a Fair Isle sweater in the post at the link before. Again I wear this shearling beauty with the burgundy beret. Nevertheless, this outerwear outfit looks a little different as my leg “coverage” differs strongly from how I wore this coat the first time around.
When winter lasts from early October to end of April you really have to try hard not to get bored of your coats and “outerwear outfit”. Thus, I try to create a new one every time. Watch it.
How is winter treating you so far? Are you already bored about your outerwear? Have you tried to style your coats, anoraks, etc. differently? What are your tricks to stay away from winter outerwear fatigue? Let me know by email, I would love to hear from you.
