Wish come true...

Coat: ASOS | Tights: Cotton On | Scarf: Sportsgirl | Shoes: Novo | Sunglasses: RayBan

It's now winter here in Australia and it's pretty damn miserable. You may have picked up from reading my blog that I don't particularly like cold weather, however I do think us Australians are pretty lucky to live in a beautiful part of the world where we see the sun all year round and because of that our winters really aren't all that bad. 

I live in one of the coldest cities in Australia and when the sun is hiding behind grey clouds or it's early in the morning, it can be really icy cold. So when I decided I needed wanted a big, warm, felted coat I knew it had to be able to protect me against the frosty winters I endure where I live.

In my mind I had decided that I wanted a skater dress shape and it had to be button up with a waist tie. Not that I was actively looking but I hadn't found any coats that fit what I was after until I was browsing the ASOS sale section on their website. As soon as I saw the coat I fell in love. It was exactly what I was after and it was on sale! I wasn't hesitant to buy it because I thought if I wasn't happy with it when it arrived it wouldn't matter for the price paid - about $78.

As I opened my package and pulled out the coat I fell in love all over again! It was perfect. The material, the style, the shape, the fit... Perfect!

Now I wear it everyday to work and most days on the weekends so it looks like I wear the same thing everyday! But I don't mind, I'm in love...

Shades of Orange

Skirt: Temt | Top: Kenji from Myer | Ring: Yves Saint Laurent Artsy Ring from Net-a-Porter

Just a quick post this week with these pics taken from when I was off to my birthday dinner back in February! I'm posting them now because I wasn't originally going to put them up here but I've been so lazy lately and I'm currently stuck at home due to having just had my wisdom teeth taken out, so it may be a little while before I can get out to do some photo shoots for the blog.

This maxi skirt is full of fun colours and is so simple and comfy to wear. This look may be a case of orange overload! Orange in the skirt, orange top, orange lip stick...

What's everyone up to for the weekend? It's a long weekend in most parts of Australia this weekend. Yippppppeeeee!!! Love weekends especially long ones!
