Every year, when the weather starts cooling down, I open my wardrobe and think what the hell did I wear last winter?! I don’t know if in some mad closet cleansing session I get rid of everything or I just manage to get by with the bare minimum during winter. Anyway the issue presents itself with the opportunity to build a workable winter wardrobe that I can build upon each year.
The first thing I needed was trousers that were versatile, something I could wear to work or on the weekend. These Zara cropped pants have completely fit the bill and also the budget for $70 each. I also invested in these leather loafers from Mode Collective. I love that the colours are neutral but the snake skin style pattern gives them character. They have given me pretty bad blisters on the first couple of wears but I am persevering in the hope they will soon be my go to shoes this winter. Are there any pieces you will be looking out for this winter?
This weekend flew by far too quickly but don’t they all? Yesterday I did a photography course with Hilary Wardhaugh – it was so much fun. I did a course ages ago but it was far too technical and went a little bit over my head and I found myself reverting back to using auto on my camera. Yesterday it clicked, well more then before and I am really looking forward to working on my photography in manual mode, hoping to get in lots of practice so I don’t lose it again.
Oh and in other really exciting note I had an article published on HerCanberra, ten of my favourite breakfast places in Canberra, of course its about brunch!
