It’s been a hectic week, both at work and at home. That’s why I skipped the (more or less) regular Thursday post: there simply was no time to take photos (during daylight hours, that is) and edit them.
And my problems with Bloglovin’ continue: not only did Bloglovin’ take ages (3 days) to update my feed (and yours) with my previous post, they also completely ignore the (increasingly sarcastic) messages I keep sending them. So, in case you’re following me on Bloglovin’, you should be aware that you only see every other, or every third, post. I wish I knew how to fix that issue, but at this point I’m running out of ideas.
OK, let’s talk about the outfit. Right, it’s autumn now, and it’s getting colder (and / or rainier) by the minute. But most of the time it’s still not cold enough to wear a coat.
At least that’s how I choose to see it. Living in a cold climate means that I will be wearing a thick, warm coat for months on end, so I’m in no hurry to start wearing my warmer clothes just yet. For now, a wool poncho over simple basics will do just fine.
But I swapped my beloved navy and white stripes for black and white, to mark the seasonal change. And if you’ve been following this blog for a while, you probably notice that this is essentially the same outfit I posted in July, minus the t-shirt and with different accessories.

bag: Furla (old) / sunglasses: Chanel (old) / shoes: Clarks (old)
In your opinion, when is it cold enough to start wearing a coat?

I don’t own a coat. I have several jackets and one longer jacket which is also a waterproof. Living in Nice is the reason. I do have a couple of wraps like you are wearing here for when it’s colder. I love the colour of yours, in French it’s Burgundy, in English usually called Bordeaux, chin chin.
Oh, I envy you! I hate winter, and I hate wearing thick coats. And now we have months cold weather and darkness ahead… Oh well, in just 6 months the days will start getting longer again.
Loving this look! I love how you have the fringe details to make it more fun!

This is such a cozy fall look! I love that color for the seasons change. Hope you’re having a great start to a new week!
Thank you! Yes, red is a good colour when the days are getting shorter and it’s getting colder.
That poncho looks so cozy and yet stylish.
I don’t mind wearing a coat, if I can still have ballet flats on bare feet. And now we have the most perfect weather for that combination. -q
I love the look of ballet flats with coats. I hardly ever wear that combo myself, though, as my feet get cold so easily! I start wearing socks and a scarf much earlier than I start wearing a coat, to avoid catching a cold…
I bought a poncho during a sale this summer and I am looking forward to wearing it (with stripes too).
Ponchos are great, I’m sure you’ll love it.
I love this look so much, Tiina! The black and white really allow for the burgundy to standout with vibrance. I am with you about coats. We live in a place where only July and August have been safe from snow in the years that I have lived here. So when there is a chance of snow 10 months out of the year, I can wait on the coats. However, this menopause business is making me very very cold long before it’s cold outside. So I might be doomed. Ha. Anyway, great post!
I can certainly relate to the 10 months of snow… OK, last winter we hardly had any, and it’s probably just a few months in any case. But it certainly always feels like winter lasts forever.
Your poncho looks so cosy and I love the pop of colour it adds to your outfit! 🙂 Sorry to hear about your bloglovin issues – hope you manage to get them resolved!
Hope you had a great weekend 🙂 Thanks so much for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup!
Bloglovin’ is still failing to update my blog, and nobody seems to read the almost-daily emails I keep sending them. I guess I have to resign to the fact that this blog will not be on Bloglovin’…
