On those days, and in this weather, I wear my Eileen Fisher riding pants.
I own these pants in both black and brown, and now you are really going to understand how absolutely simple this outfit is: I wear the black pair with a black v neck sweater, and the brown pair with a brown v neck sweater. My sweater is the Classic Cashmere V Neck Jumper from Brora.
I had an idea that I would find a really tailored coat to top this outfit, something in a dark gray tweed ideally. It had to have simple lines and be fairly warm, and though my first thought was to save my money for a Brora coat, in the end I ordered one from the J. Crew sale, the Collection Tweed Coat.
It has a cocoon shape and suits the "uniform outfit" of slim pants and v neck jumper. With the addition of a scarf and my handbag, and either black or brown tall boots from La Canadienne, we're done.

It's Friday and I hope you're doing something fun,
