Melbourne without a doubt has been a little temperamental these last few days. We were fortunate enough to escape the freeze last week as we travelled to sunny Singapore for a week. But the last three days since we’ve been back? Let see. I’ve worn a singlet, a long sleep top, a parka, a jacket, a pair of boots, and a pair of peep toes. All these in different combinations in three days! Confusion alright..!
This beautiful city has been such a mix bag of temperatures, but on the whole, it is clear that winter is fast approaching. With the foggy mornings, the sunny afternoons and the evening chill..it is that time of the year again.
Winter can be a tricky season to dress for. The tendency is to pull out the darker colours. My take on winter dressing? Keep it simple with a pop of colour! ( please excuse my obsession with colour!)
So, today, for a casual outing/meeting, I started with a basic black Camo Tee from Seed, available here, with a pair of skinny jeans from Dotti available here, and I kept warm with this beautiful Ponte Biker Target jacket, available here (comes in a few different colours too!). The beauty of the jacket is that it is lightweight, enough to keep warm as a layering piece, and comfy enough to be kept on while indoors. Great purchase I must say!
To complete this outfit, I popped on a pair of earrings purchased from Zara in Singapore on my travels, which is available here, and wore a pair of beautiful deep red wedges I purchased at the Round She Goes Markets in Melbourne earlier this year, which was a steal! (definitely worth checking them out). And this bag? A quick pick up for $30.00 from Bardot two weeks ago! Woopa…nothing says winter like fur! Not seeing it online anymore, but you can find a similar one here.
It was a bright, sunny, chilly kind of day! But I was warm, bright and comfy, enjoyed a quick meeting, and some time in the Melbourne sun.
What are some of your tricks for dressing this season? Do you like adding a pop of colour somewhere, somehow? And if so, how do you do it?
