It's starting to get chilly here! Finally it feels like fall and I'm rather excited about getting to partake in the world of layering again. I have never been a big jewelry person so as the weather heats up the variety to my accessories diminishes. The cooler months are perfect for piling on scarves, hats, gloves, coats, and even interesting leg wear.

Needless to say I am thrilled to the start accessorizing again! At least until shoveling the driveway becomes a regular part of my daily routine ;)

Wool blazer: Gap (4 years ago)
Houndstooth scarf: Random shop in Paris
Black sweater: Thrifted
Belt: Thrifted
Wool skirt: Vintage store in Paris
Tapestry handbag: Tag sale
Heels: Random shop in Paris

I can count on one hand the number of clothing items that I own from the Gap and 3 were thrifted! To my American eyes the coat looked very English and I fell in love despite the fact that since it was from the Gap it would be obnoxiously over priced. Half the reason why I rarely shop there is because their clothes are not always on par with the price (in my humble opinion). The blazer pills like crazy but despite having to constantly shave the darn thing, the blazer is still one of my favorite "transitional" jackets.
