We took these snaps today somewhere in between sipping on skinny capps at The Kitchen @ Weylandts (future-apartments-goals – for real though) and strolling through Abbotsford in the very welcomed almost spring sun. Albeit prematurely, I couldn’t help but slip into a new favourite slip top, a slightly oversized pinstripe blazer and some old school light-wash Levis. All in all, an absolutely splendid Sunday.
With winter well and truly underway in Melbourne, it’s pretty important to have that extra layer of warmth when leaving the house, particularly on those icy cold mornings. Although most fashion people always say they love winter because they love winter fashion – the layering, the coats, the OTK boots etcetera etcetera – surprisingly, it has actually never really been for me. As a true summer-gal at heart, I find winter – or more specifically, winter fashion quite difficult. I don’t like having to wear a stack of layers but alternatively I despise being cold.
As the weather begins to [far-too-quickly] drop in Melbourne, I wanted to share with you a piece from UNIQLO that I have been wearing to help keep warm. Apart from being a super chic fashion item available in literally every single colour imaginable, the Ultra Light Down Jacket is water repellant and surprisingly really warm. I say surprisingly as it actually doesn’t feel overly thick! Also, as an aside, it comes with a little compact pouch that you can squeeze the entire jacket into! So it is super easy to transport in your handbag – so clever! Anyways, to say that I am a fan would probably be an understatement – I had a wedding in the Yarra Valley this weekend and barely took this jacket off!
