Capsule wardrobe #112 - Autumn colors



The Virginia creeper in November is a feast for the eyes, and it is the time when I wear my Carré en Carré scarf most. Combining it today with the same capsule pieces, boots and accessories as in the recent 'Autumn market'  post, only this time wearing a rust cardie instead of the fawn coat


Capsule wardrobe pieces: black sweater, grey/brown trousers and rust cardigan (a cheap&chic twin of the beige version in the spring capsule wardrobe pieces post)
Shoes: dark brown cowboy boots
Accessories: Hermès 'Carré en Carré' 90 carré, clic H enamel bangle in marron glacé and ebene Birkin. MaiTai Collection scarf fur collar in mocca
Scarf tying method: five loop method, with the ends tied into an Ascot knot

Just as well I took the above pictures a couple of days ago.... this is how the outside looked today, after 48 hours of nonstop rain!


I'll be away for a few days, and looking forward to catching up with you soon. Hope you all have a wonderful remaining week, and a great weekend ahead xx

    MaiTai took care about rest of heaven, bringing beautiful symphony of rust & golden autumn colours to us, therefore your help in reissuing the scarf will be most appreciated. :)

  13. When I wear my scarf in the basic bias fold just around the neck (with a jacket, etc.), after a few moments/movements, the scarf is always lopsided (one side longer than the other), do you have a way to keep it centered? Sometimes tying it is not a good effect for a particular look, e.g. you want to show case a necklace or something like that.

  15. Brown cowboy boots are on my wish list for the Winter; there are so many brands and styles that I can't seem to get started on my search.....absolutely love the ones you have on in this post. Would you please share the brand? Your style is absolutely my my ultimate; every single combination you show is fabulous! Can't wait to wear my new fur collar with my scarves; glad you offer them!
