The no-brainer on a chilly spring day
Spring is no fun right now. Not at all. The weather is too april right now and it is annoying. So instead of bringing you another fun and light-fabric outfit for the warmer weather, I can only offer long sleeves, light cashmere and my all-time favorite trainers. This outfit is super basic but I still wanted to put up an outfit post about it because I do love it. Even though it was put together to serve a purpose: not getting cold but still looking spring-appropriate. The great thing about this outfit is that you can switch it up easily, using different essentials everyone has in their closet, but always looking effortless and put together for a shopping tour, Saturday brunch, weekend stroll or the cinema. All you need is your favorite cashmere sweater (I’m sure you own at least one, if not, go buy one, you’ll need it!), a casual pair of denim, cool sneakers and a colorful scarf. Easy as pie.
I think I have stressed my love for simple cashmere sweaters enough by now. It’s an absolute staple to me, just like a white tee or a trench coat. Why I’m telling you again? Because this time of the year you can get cashmere pullovers on sale for almost half of. That’s why 😉 I wore my fave ripped girlfriend Paige denim with it and since I hadn’t worn these pants for all of winter, I was super excited to get them back out. I’ve had these for over two years now and they are simply great. Paige in general makes great denim with a perfect fit so I really try to stick to their jeans (even though they are fairly expensive, but hey, midseason sale). To not make me look too boring and like I don’t care about anything but ice cream, chips and Grey’s Anatomy with all my essentials thrown together, I added a hint of color with my new Gucci scarf. Always a safe and stylish bet.
So here you have it, the perfect no-brainer style for any casual day. Just throw your essentials together, don’t forget a fancy scarf (please don’t wear those crinkled off-the-boring-rack loop scarfs with it, rather opt for a small designer silk or wool scarf or fancy twilly!) and you are good to go.
Here are the links: Ripped bf denim by Paige (similar here and on sale right now!), grey cashmere sweater by Closed (this one is similar), black leather jacket by Mexx (3 years old but this one is cool too), peachy pink scarf by Gucci (bought mine at the outlet but you can also look on ebay for good deals on pre-loved ones), mirrored pink aviators by RayBan, ring is too old to be real 😀 and bracelet is my trusted Tiffany&Co from the Atlas collection. Almost forgot my silver kicks from Nike, the Airmax Thea style.
