Fall for basics

jeans 7 for all mankind , shirt given , silk scarf thrifted , leather bag Uterque
Happy new school year ! I'm back in the city , I'll fill in the details in another post and I 'm yet again caught in my fatuation for basics. It seems that fall is the time of the year to ...fall for basics as I go through my summer wardrobe and I  pack to put to storage what I got fed up with.

Today's outfit is very basic and provides the stage for this silk scarf I found while thrifting yesterday.

I came along this tutorial by The Elegant Bohemian a blog I really love to read and she's done something pretty amazing ...she machine washed her leather bag!!! I'm having thoughts of doing the same.


  1. I am wearing a similar outfit today except that I am wearing a necklace rather than a scarf. It is still hot here so scarves are a bit too constricting. I think jeans and a white shirt are a classic look and you look very nice.

  2. I need to find a white shirt. It's a "closet staple" that I really do wish that I had. You look great; so classic and pretty!

  3. I agree with Debbi, you can't go wrong with a dark jean and white shirt. Your scarf and classic bag are wonderful accent pieces.

  4. Nice looking outfit. I like the sandals with the long pants, it keeps some of the summery feeling.

  5. I like the clean simple lines of this look and now I'm off to check out Serene's post!
