A cosy winter outfit- my seasonal muse.

I love the 'petrol blue' shade of this Acne knit, and it may be the injection of colour my drab winter wardrobe is desperately in need of.
A winter skirt is also on my to-buy list, and this little leather piece from Witchery is ticking all necessary boxes

back in black

Wow. I know! Where have I been??
Things have been a little unsettled,slash, gone a bit haywire for the last few months– hence my extended absence. But, alas, I am back.

The winter weather has struck Melbourne and I found myself rather unprepared for the cool temperatures. I have no current desire to splash my wardrobe with any colour whatsoever, instead all I want to wear is black, grey and navy. This season I am focusing even more on the concept of quality not quantity and plan to invest in a small number of good quality items that will last. So the emphasis is on simplicity and wearability.

Number one on my purchase list is a black leather bag. I visited this Status Anxiety one the other day and it was really lovely. My budget is not all that generous, so it would be a good (and dare I say, cheaper) option than the Chloé and Marc alternatives. I know I've done a post on black bags before, and I think my criteria is generally the same. It has to be simple, a good size, not too many zips and 'bling' and made from soft leather.
