Jumper: Yes or No (new), Skirt: Esprit, Boots: Andrés Machado (previous seasons)
In winter we have a phenomenon in Switzerland that is called: ”unten grau, oben blau”. It means that the days can be cloudy and grey in the lower areas of the country and that you can have a beautiful blue and sunny sky when you get higher into the mountains. Some days you just have to look actively for some sunshine.
Since grey is a colour that suits me very well I own quite some grey clothes. This outfit is even 100% ton sur ton. Imagine how ton sur ton I am on an average grey winter day here!
It’s also definitely an outfit for outside the classroom for me, since the boots would be too much of a challenge for a whole day of teaching.
You can imagine that I love the boots though. They literally make me some centimetres taller, which is a big bonus for a petite like me. I also love what they do for the whole picture. The skirt is quite serious and the boots make the outfit more playful.
I would also like to show you a ton sur ton outfit with the same jumper that is very suitable for the classroom. You may recognize the trousers from my sailor outfit. They are great for winter and summer, so extremely versatile. For the colder days, I can combine them with this warm ruffled jumper and my fluffy bag.
Jumper: Yes or No (new), Trousers: Tally Weijl, Boots: Hobbs, Bag: Maddison (previous seasons)
In case it is a grey day when you are reading this blogpost, keep in mind that some days you just have to create your own sunshine!
Which of my two grey ton sur ton outfits do you like most?
