Matching Accessories

I'm Getting Matchy-Matchy... 

When it comes to accessories, that is. I like my accessories to go together, sort of tell the same story.
And now it's November, and everything is getting a bit grey and grim and bland... Winter is just around the corner, and I need to brace myself. I need accessories that are tough and look like they mean business...

how to accessorise a Chanel bag

Actually, I just matched the shoes and the gloves to the bag...

This is my favourite off-duty bag for this time of the year, so it makes sense to have shoes and gloves that complement the bag. And by complement I mean black leather and details with padding, or metal, or both, just like the bag.


Yes, I tend to get a bit more rock-chick as we approach winter; it's my armour against the cold, and the darkness. And it goes with the general bland colour scheme of November, too...


I'm wearing:
coat: Marks and Spencer (a/w 2014) / leather skirt: Karen Millen (old) / top: jigsaw / ankle boots: Clarks / bag and sunglasses: Chanel / gloves: Pia Rossini (old) / cashmere scarf (old)

Does your style change with the seasons?

    1. Thanks, Jill! The bag is my favourite, it was a birthday present from my husband (it was a big birthday), and it seems to go with anything.

    1. Thanks, Patti. Yes, this is the darkest time of the year, and daylight seems in short supply, We do need some cheering up, in whatever form.

  6. Nothing like a touch of rock chick to brighten a Winters day. Love how the accessories even though each is a little different play so well together.I must admit as much as I enjoy our warmer days I do miss wearing my gloves, yours are really great.

    1. Thanks! I actually steer clear from grey usually. But as this is sort of powder blue/greyish, it's a bit more forgiving on my skin.

    1. Thanks! This is actually a very typical look for me as it contains all the elements I like: stripes, leather, tough accessories...

  12. Fierce accessories, Tiina! Perfect for Autumn stormy weather. And we're boots twinnies. I have a similar pair of boots that are both laces and zip but in brown which I posted about on Monday. Great minds think alike.
    And I like the criss cross effect of your leather skirt.

    1. Yes! Good boots, that's what every girl needs when the weather turn foul. I have quite a collection of 'winter' boots: for dry weather + snow, for wet snow, for no snow and plus degrees...

  13. Beautiful stuff you have: bag, gloves, boots and especially the coat. Super coat.
    Like you I like to match bag and shoes. I know it is totally old fashioned but often I don't care and do it anyway.
