My favourite time of year is spring/summer and I really dislike winter, but I do love the fashion! As winter is now upon us, I put together a collection of my favourite winter items that I couldn’t live without!
My 7 Essentials:
I became a lover of scarves when I started teaching and experienced my first winter out west! Since then I’ve spent a lot of time visiting Melbourne where my sister and her family live and we spent 4 weeks in the States during winter – snow and all, which is where I’ve purchased some of my favourite ones. I’m also lucky mum has knitted me quite a few to. An outfit can look quite dull until a scarf is added and completes it 10 fold!
I feel an outfit isn’t complete unless something in on my head! One of my favourite things about winter is being able to fashion my beanies!
Jeans / Tights:
I very rarely wear dresses or skirts during winter, maybe on an occasional work day with tights and boots, otherwise I live in jeans. My favorites are my skinny jeans and I love my jeggins! I just bought my first pair of coloured skinny jeans today!
Jackets….obsessed much and these are just my favourites! I’m drawn to them when I go to the shops, plus they are so good to dress up or down!
I love that Queensland’s winter allows us to still feel summery….nothing like a good 3/4 or long sleeve shirt to dress up a pair of jeans!
I find it hard to find a nice woolen jumper, but I do love the feel of wool in winter!
Ballet flats….have many and would still go out and buy 10 pairs more! I don’t do heels unless I go to a wedding or the races, I feel too tall and unco in them! Ballet flats are always safe:) and you can dress them up or down!
I only have two Pairs of boots, in the obvious colours of black and brown and again they are flat and comfortable but an essential in winter! I live in my brown ones the most.
So there you have it, the above winter items are my favourites! Some are new, some are old, some were bought locally, others from down south and others as far as New York! Keep an eye out for my next fashion blog on how to mix, match and style your winter wardrobe!
