Updating A Classic Combo

October 3, 2017

Taking a striped tee, denim, and a trench coat into Fall 2017!

Getting a lot of wear out of clothing is more important to me than ever.  I am STILL in the midst of streamlining and cutting down my wardrobe, and let me tell you, this process is incredibly eye opening. I have far too many pieces that shouldn’t have been purchased in the first place.  At this point in my life, I’m finally getting a grasp of what I actually get the most wear out of and coming to terms with the fact that comfort plays a major role in that.

I wanted to create a look with some older timeless pieces and update them with a couple trends.  The starting point was a striped long sleeve t-shirt, skinny jeans, and my classic trench coat.  I always like to rock a trench as much as possible in the spring and autumn, because there’s such a small window of time for it!  Added a matching black cross body bag and my Daniel Wellington watch, but wanted to add a little pop of colour as well.

I’d picked up these orangey-red mules in Bellevue a few weekends ago and am so happy I did!  They’re a great shoe for this seasonal transition and who doesn’t love a good slider?  The ultimate footwear choice for running out the door!  It happened to be raining on and off on this particular day, so I also opted for a hat.  This Baker Boy cap is absolutely my new favourite!  It goes with so much and is a welcome change from my fedoras.  I still love my large brim hats, but it’s great to mix it up!

How do you like to remix your fall staples?  Would love to know in the comments below!  Or not, that’s cool too 😉
