I love winter, well not so much the cold miserable weather, but I love the idea of cuddling up near the heater or fire, staying warm in a cosy bed, enjoying every manner of comfort food and most of all wearing super comfy winter clothes.
As soon as Autumn hits I start prepping my winter wardrobe, and let me tell you, there are some awesome pieces up for grabs this year. Here are some of my top picks (and a few items that I may have purchased in the last week).
My winter uniform is pretty much a scarf, knit, jeans and a pair of boots, all of which I tend to update annually. Of the lot, I find the hardest thing to buy are comfy and flattering knits, so I’ve spent the last few weeks searching the net for all that’s on offer this season. Fortunately there are some great pieces up for grabs, so here are my top picks.
To my absolute dismay, it looks as though the cold weather has well and truly set in (what can you hear? Ye p, that’d be all of Melbourne letting out one big collective sigh). Given I live in this great southern state, it really shouldn’t surprise me that I’m already living in boots and knits, and although I’ve resisted temptation, it’s time to pull out my winter coat and scarves.
A good coat is such a necessity in Melbourne (especially if you have to brave freezing mornings, standing of a train platform or walking through the CBD to get to work. I definitely don’t miss those days!), so I tend to buy a new one each year, and yes this shopaholic, limits herself to one great piece each year that I just about wear to death. Finding a great looking and fitting coat isn’t an easy task, I can try on what feels like a hundred coats before I decide on one. So if you’re like me and struggle to find that perfect coat, I’ve made it a whole lot easier for you, here are some of the amazing pieces up for grabs this year.
