Zara sweater
Givenchy lace up boots

When the weather gets cold, I’m really more focused on simplicity and not having to worry about tons of components in an outfit, so a b&w color palette is golden. I’ve always liked the pairing of two very different textures like a thick knit with leather, it adds edge to an otherwise kind of frumpy grandma look (though I’m sometimes into that). I also like the illusion of leather skinnies that run into leather boots almost seamlessly. Before fall started I went on an oversized sweater shopping rampage to stock up (it’s like the idea of buying canned foods in prep of catastrophe but on a totally minuscule scale), and this and a few others from Zara have been keeping me mighty warm.

    WOW! Unbeatable look dear, so elegant and sexy! I love that first picture, you look amazing and I love your (new?) hair. Those Givenchy boots are exceptionally beautiful and leather leggings always do the trick.

    There's something so comforting about oversized sweaters. Very chic the way you paired it with the leather skinnies & leather boots. Love how it makes your legs look super long.
