Transeasonal: Leather jacket

My outfit the other day when I was out of the house the entire day and evening in different places indoors and outdoors.

The Scarf

I’ve been wearing my trusted brown brogues all Winter when I’m not in boots. They kind of balance out the femininity of the scarf. This is typical of how I wear a scarf – slung on! Honestly I don’t feel the need to try out lovely knots, folds and pleats.

Thanks for reading!
