My Go To Outfit: Oversized Blouse + Oversized Cardigan + Leggings Part 1


Everyone has a "go to" outfit.  The fail safe plan.  The never-gets-old trick-in-the-book.  And as the seasons change, so does this equation (well, at least in colour and texture).  If you saw my very first style video, or you've been following my blog for a while, you'll know that I always reach for an oversized fit on top with a slimmer fit for bottoms (unless it's summer, which is when I opt for tres short shorts).




Cardigan: Korea | Oversized Chiffon blouse: American Apparel | Leatherish leggings: Ardenes
I have been (for a very long time) head-over-heels in LOVE with the ease of wearing an oversized something with leggings.  Ever since discovering this fail-safe combo I've almost never stopped wearing it.  Srsly.  Call me lazy, but I personally feel so chic in leggings!  To stay warmer during winter months, I top off an oversized top with an oversized cardi (and eventually when the weather calls for it:  a gigantic coat).

Faux Fur Scarf - Zara
For even more added warmth, I've been grabbing for this faux fur scarf A LOT lately.  I love this faux fur Zara scarf.  It is SOO soft and SO warm.  I saw it in the store when I was with my boyfriend and I couldn't stop stroking it (weird??), and carrying it around with me in contemplation.  He ended up just getting the damn scarf for me HAHA, bless his sweet heart.

Vintage Dooney & Bourke bag: thrifted
Faux Suede loafer flats: GoJane




What is your go-to outfit combo?  Do you have a signature style?  Let me know in the comments!  Oh, and this outfit post will be in 2 parts:  We took photos with 2 different bags, and I thought adding ALLLLL the photos would just get too long and boring.  I'll post the second batch tomorrow =).


Hope 2013 has been good to you so far.  We're already 7 days into it!
