Adrien: Foggy

So, what to do if the weather outside is really photogenic but you're wearing an outfit that you posted on the blog a few weeks ago? Um, how about some layers?

Okay, see, I think a lot of people don't put much thought into outerwear. I know I didn't used to. I had one jacket and one winter coat that I wore constantly without really thinking about how they looked with what I was wearing. The thing is, during the winter months I spend a lot of time with my outfit covered up so I really started trying to make my outerwear a second outfit. (This doesn't require a wardrobe of coats but it does help to have more than one.) The easiest way to do this? Buy scarves. I now have a wardrobe of scarves because nothing can make you look pulled together more than the right scarf.

Okay, that's the lesson. Now, here are my layers for a day that started out cool and foggy:

cardigan: Gap drape sweater
jacket: J Crew Field Jacket
scarf: Ann Taylor (similar)
bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs
shoes: Chie Mihara


  1. I love everything about this outfit! The fog has been so magical too!

  2. I love seeing you in something from JCrew, just because I'm a stupid JCrew addict and I know you don't like a lot of their stuff :-)

    How do you feel about wearing drapey sweaters that hang down longer than your jacket? That drives me nuts and I can't do it. Be honest: did you remove or tuck up your sweater in these photos? Because it LOOKS like it's longer than the Field Jacket...

    I just scored a surprisingly nice wool toggle coat at Target this weekend that has me thrilled beyond belief. Great coats make great outfits.

  3. Wren, you are funny! I actually do like JCrew, it's JCrew that doesn't like me back.

    And you know, I think I did take the sweater off before putting the jacket on. I couldn't remember, but I don't see it in the photos. I did wear them together later that day and they're about the same length, so none of the weird hang-down action.
