woollen red


Wearing: Sessun red wool coat, Lonely Hearts navy velvet pinafore, Primark scarf, vintage white blouse & Topshop buckle boots {Photos: Tom}

It seems that when the weather is cold, all I want to do is wear bright colours and pretend it is all warm and cheery. I picked up this red wool coat from the Sessun boutique in Paris and it has been the perfect lighter-weight complement to my shearling lined dark red Sessun coat I wore religiously in chilly Paris. I  love the classic design with a button down front, twin pockets and comfortable, relaxed fit. Red is a colour I never quite get tired of so I can just see it taking me through many Winters to come! Italy’s Winter is very mild as compared to all the other countries we had visited so wearing some long sleeve thermals underneath my pinafore and coat was all that was really needed to keep warm. It was also the first time we saw the sun shine in Europe as well – something we had escaped from in Australia, only to realise how much we missed it! As it wasn’t snowing in Venice, I was very excited to swap my old snow-weather boots over for something more polished – these buckle boots from Topshop. I just love the buckle details and the fact that there is not just one, but four buckles on them! They’re also super tran-seasonal and I can’t wait to introduce them to Melbourne soil as the weather starts to cool down a wee bit.

    The brightness in these photos is way too high. I can barely see any details in the gorgeous Venice scenery. Be more careful in white balance and curve editing, please! Other than that, love the coat.
