cookieOptions = {...}; secondhand rose: 127/ AUTUMN UNIFORM

Tuesday, 20 October 2015


Hi my name is Rosie and I'm a serial outfit repeater.

If I like something, I'm going to wear it. A lot. End of story.

This look has become something of an autumn uniform for me. Outerwear is extremely important for the climate in which I live so finding staple pieces that can be layered is essential for braving our ever changing weather. When I saw this lightweight black jacket on the sale rack at Addition Elle I just knew that it had to come home with me. Truth be told I haven't owned a black jacket in years, so it was something that I was definitely on the hunt for. I love how light and airy it is, but it can be easily layered with thicker pieces and paired with a million different things to change its look and give it dimension. Basically, I use this jacket as a good basic piece to build on.

It is then that I add accessories. I try to change up my handbag and shoes on a daily basis but everything else remains virtually the same. If you couldn't already tell I absolutely love the plaid scarf from Zara pictured below. It's so cozy and warm, it's unreal. It's also rare that I stray from a black skinny legged jean or legging; that is style habit that I have and although I've tried, I can't seem to break it. It's just something that I feel most comfortable in.

I was feeling rather casual on the day the photos were taken so I decided to finish the look off with my Longchamp Le Pliage tote and added a bit of glam to the outfit with my gold glittery Converse and oversize 'Runway' Michael Kors watch.

    1. Outfit repeating is so great and saves SO much time - I don't get why people hate on it so much!
