Sometimes inspiration can be found in the strangest places. In my case, the inspiration for this outfit came from a picture of a child I saw on Tumblr. (For the record, I’m not a fan of children, so those that know me would find this even stranger).
With nippier weather, this outfit offers a cosy, casual and warm weekend look that is perfect for running errands as well as curling up in front of the fire. The maxi skirt offers a long line for a flattering look, as well as offering protection from the outside air.
Layering is key when you’re running around, as temps change from location to location. A long sleeve thermal and edgy zip-up vest offer substantial warmth without adding much bulk. Keeping them in the same tonal family is also flattering, and black is a universal color that works on all skin tones.
Topping off the look with a thick knit beanie and gold-tipped cat-eye sunglasses keeps the casual and edgy theme running from head to toe.
