I was cleaning out my wardrobe the other day and whilst reorganising my wardrobe into tops, bottoms, dresses and coats, I noticed something. I own about four pairs of pants but about 40 pairs of tights. This is probably due to the fact that I became the owner of quite a collection of black opaque tights when going through high school, some four years ago. So in an effort to balance this out (if there is so much yin, it’s only natural to balance it out with equal parts yang, right?), I picked up this happy chappy pair on a late night Topshop browse last week. I’m telling myself that it’s definitely time to graduate from wearing tights five days a week. Fifth year of uni starts today, surely that’s not five years too late?

It’s that time of the year when long grass fields overflow at the local gardens, the sun is blazing hot and unforgiving & the days grow long. Whilst living in the reality that is Summer, I’ve been spending a lot of time planning my trip to Europe, flipping through images of the snowy Mt Pilatus and buying the perfect Winter coat that will take me through a real Winter, as opposed to an Australian Winter. In a way, this wintery research keeps my mind in a state of cool. For some reason, the 37 degree day yesterday did not feel as hot as it should have felt and maybe, perhaps, it was because I spent the majority of the day checking out Winter activities in Paris..
I’ve had these Jeffrey Campbell shoes in my wardrobe for almost a year now. They’ve been buried behind all my other shoes and I soon forgot about them. Luckily I remembered them today as they were the perfect shoe for my lilac and red combination! And speaking of this light pastel purple and bright red combo, I am very surprised to find how well pastel colours mix with vibrant ones, when you pair the right colours together. The deer print jacket is also a piece I’ve had for a while – except I have been getting a lot of wear out of this one, just not on my blog. I just love the quirky print of it and was so close to getting the matching deer print skater skirt as well. Then I counted the deers on this jacket and decided I had enough. Just in case you wanted to know, there were 50 and more…oh deer! :-)

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.
