Work outfit inspired by the colors of a scarf

It has gotten cold again. Thus, I bundle up by wearing my  mock neck pink cashmere sweater over my long sleeve T-shirt under my leather sheath dress. To add extra insulation I wear two pairs of tights and a half slip and my over-the-knee boots. They are fantastic to keep the knees warm. For some interest and extra insulation of my neck I added this Louis Vuitton silk scarf. The scarf inspired the color combination of the outfit and ties it all together for a posh work outfit. This scarf was a find in a consignment store in town. Some times I am really astonished what treasures people have in their closets.

Styling outerwear

For the commute I added my new burgundy motorcycle coat. Again I wear it with the burgundy beret. Nevertheless, this outer 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 “outer outfit”. Thus, I try to create a new one every time. Watch it.
