Wearing: ASOS light green boyfriend slouch beanie, Sessun dark green cape coat, vintage white blouse, vintage sweater guard, Zara corduroy jeans, Shashi ‘Dillon’ ring & Gorman ankle boots
I finally got the chance to visit the Sessun boutique in Paris during my stay there and was extremely estactic to see their collection in person after originally discovering them a few months earlier on ASOS. I left with three coats to add to my collection and a few days later, came across this little post about me on their blog! It’s such a lovely feeling when a brand you love writes about you in this way, it’s like a two way friendship. So now I am travelling around with four Sessun coats in my suitcase which are serving me extremely well in battling the cold here. I wore this dark green cape coat out and about in Lucerne. It’s one of the many green pieces in my suitcase that I try my absolute hardest not to wear all at the same time. After finding out how cold it really was in Paris (and how my cotton leggings, even with thermals under, just won’t cut it) I bought two pairs of warmer pants from Zara. One of which are these multi-coloured cord jeans which are extremely warm, a must have for Winter & makes me miss all my patterned and printed pieces in my wardrobe back at home!

Wearing: Sessun Julie and Candy parka coat, ASOS lime green rib boyfriend beanie, vintage white blouse, vintage sweater guard, ASOS Petite textured stitch jumper, Shashi Dillon ring/handmade rings, Gorman leggings and Gorman boots
When I was packing my suitcase for Europe, I was frantically looking around for all the knits and thermals I had. However, it turned out that the weather wasn’t all that cold in London and I was actually getting away with wearing only a shirt and knit underneath my coat every day. A London 10 C is not bad and I think it’s because all the buildings in the city block the cold wind, coupled with the fact that the British just happen to LOVE their heating. Every single indoor space you enter is met with an almost offending 30 degree climate. Not great if you’re wearing heaps of layers as you soon find yourself stripping them all off! These outfit photos were taken on Westminster bridge and its surrounds. I’m wearing my one and only coat (so far!) I packed for Europe, some Gorman leggings I picked up at the post-Christmas sales in Melbourne and boots that were a Christmas present from Tom :’-). If you’re visiting London, this is an area you don’t want to miss as there are lots of tourist attractions nearby including the London Eye Ferris Wheel, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament and of course, Westminster Abbey – where William and Kate got married!
Wearing: Cici shirt, vintage apricot jumper, vintage sweater guard, daisy butterfly bracelet, Topshop printed trousers, ASOS rings, neoprene bag from FW & See by Chloe sneaker wedges
Time to bust out the colour for another cold and gloomy Melbourne Winter! These pastel pink See by Chloe wedges that I ordered right after I posted my latest “Currently Loving” post, have really inspired me to play around with the pastel palette. I’ve been constantly decorating my collared shirts with vintage sweater guards. I’ve been collecting them for over a year now and now have quite a collection. I think I love them so much as it’s just so much comfier to wear something clipped onto a collar than to throw a necklace on. I especially hate putting on a necklace on a cold morning only to have the cold metal against my skin give me the chills. I decided to break up the apricot, lilac and pastel pink with some printed pants from Topshop which are actually surprisingly warm! They were from the Summer collection and was also done in a bandeau as well – but I just find the bright colour so fitting for brightening up a cold day! So I wear them in Winter :) And these wedges? I am so happy I bought them. I should really do more of those posts every time I want to convince myself to buy something, because by the time I finish writing about how much I like something, I have totally convinced myself that the purchase is justified. Now they’re supposed to be sneaker wedges but I refuse to see them as that. I like to think that they are a bit more polished up and refined than your average sneaker on a wedge, but I must say, that I can literally run in them like as if they were sneakers.
