if i’m ever in doubt as to what to wear i always reach for the classics. why? because they work. timeless and chic, classics have an iconic presence for a reason. every single component of today’s ootd is a tried-and-true essential. trench coat – check. striped tee – check. ballet flats – check. scarf – check. even the patent leather tote has classic lines so it adds ta smidge of old school chicness.
two things i particularly like about this outfit: the silk scarf is square so is perfect tied around the neck. and the tote has a long strap that turns it into a crossbody bag in a snap. there’s a teensy bit of pattern mixing with polka dots and stripes. did you notice both items hail from the same color family? keep that in mind when trying your hand at print mixes. it keeps this trend soft and subtle and works for this casual chic girl.
who is loving fall as much as i am? a gorgeous day was delivered today. merci beaucoup!

Love trench coats. They’re a must and go great with any outfit, specially with the one you are wearing.
I have a trench coat very similar to yours and I’m thinking of buying another one on a darker color. navy perhaps.
a navy trench coat will be a perfect addition. it will be just as versatile as khaki. and the perfect companion to stripes!
ooh la la! perfect trench coat and the shoes are tres chic! gorgeous fall days are golden… xoxo
recently, we’ve been served some delicious fall days. and i’m loving every one of ’em.
A gorgeous look for a gorgeous day ! You’re looking spectacular. Just the right amount of pattern mix and trench to make this outfit work.
The trench is really a winner–I like the shorter length, too. Looks like a go-to piece for many occasions.
it’s funny you mentioned the shorter length! that’s what i love about it. it will look tres chic popped over a pencil skirt and belted. hmmmm, i think i have a future blog post here.
Love, love, love! French style is my favorite:) You look stunning Beth! Have a grea day, Renata xo
You cutest look ever! Love, love, love. ❤️
