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!

Recently, I was invited to the media preview for the new Zara store in Chadstone. It’s really exciting to see more of my favourite international brands becoming more accessible as they make their way around Australia. The layout of their new store was so spacious and clean, making navigating your way through the store a breeze. Amongst the glittering array of their newest collection, it was the printed white blouses which caught my eye. I have a thing for nature and when shirts start throwing images of birds, zebras and puppies at me, I really can’t help but want to take them home. I had a hard choice choosing between the bird print, zebra print and puppy print – they were all essentially the same shirt and in fact, I already have the the plain ivory silk version of it from when I was in London earlier this year! But another shirt just can’t hurt. I ended up buying this zebra print one, and it has been serving me well paired with my pinafores and overalls, under vintage jumpers or even on its own as shown here!

Also, I seem to go through this major denim phase every now and then, which is so unlike me but so me at the same time. Sometimes it’s just the practicality and sleekness that emanates from the skinny cut jeans. Just last week my friend looked at me in class, puzzled, and exclaimed, “You’re wearing jeans two weeks in a row?!” Well little did she know, the week before when she skipped class, I was wearing jeans as well! So yes, it’s safe to admit that I am in another denim phase and if you’re looking to add one soft shade of denim in your wardrobe this season, I’m voting lilac for you!
