The family and I have been back in France for the last two weeks to celebrate my mama’s birthday, which btw has been far too much fun. Spending time in the French countryside in Autumn is magnificent. Big blue skies and soft sunshine during the day whilst sightseeing the local villages and evenings spent by the fire drinking red wine – who could ask for more?
This countryside doesn’t exactly call for high fashion, so as the leaves turn from bright green to dirty yellow, a cozy jersey and muted layers are the best wardrobe pieces for comfort and a bit of warmth.
On one of our daily explorations, we stopped by the medieval town of Martel to snap a few photos (taken by my talented sister-in-law) while the locals set up for a medieval festival!
I love this cozy cream jersey, (the tie in the front adds a cute detail making it a little less ‘grandma’) and I find myself still reaching for summer’s denim shirt – worn here around the hips (so 90’s but so versatile!)
And to complete the look? Why, of course, a casual pair of sneakers and big sunnies. I’m loving these black and neon kicks from New Balance and these mask-aviators from Valentino.
I find that layering is the easiest way to transition my wardrobe between seasons. It allows me to hold onto a few key items from the previous season – like the denim shirt – but to add some essential, exciting new-season additions at the same time, ’cause it’s not a new season till we’ve purchased some new trend pieces right? Happy Autumn!
