Winter is now in full swing in Australia. I do not enjoy the cold weather, except for that initial part when I get myself familiar with my forgotten winter wardrobe!

It is always exciting to find things I didn't even remember owning or that I bought at the end of the last winter and are brand new.

I highly recommend that if you haven't already, make sure you have put all of the past season's clothes away. You want to be able to see all that you can wear now easily.

I have just moved my summer clothes into my back wardrobe as I am definitely not going to be wearing them anytime soon... 


I had probably 3-4 weeks of joy trying on my 'new wardrobe'. Rediscovering my jackets and coats. 

But after a few weeks, I got a bit bored. So it is important for me to add a fun twist to keep it exciting.

Playing with colours, tops with different styles and different prints are a great way to change the feeling of an outfit.

I am in love with this top. It is long sleeve so it keeps me warm, but it has the print and opening that adds excitement to it. 

Mixed with this jacket, which is the same colour as the stripes, makes it work perfectly. 

As I have all the fun happening at the top, I am keeping my jeans and boots the same colour.


The other thing I like doing is playing with scarves in different colours and textures. Even when you are wearing all dark colours, the scarf can bring a lot of fun to the outfit.

I am wearing: Top: Zara, Jacket: Forevernew, Jeans: Marcs, Boots: COL.

Have an amazing week!
