Winter uniform

Well, tomorrow is officially the first day of winter down here, but it's felt like it for weeks. I thought, after experiencing actual snowy winter in Europe, I'd be fine in Sydney, but 15C is colder than I remembered. This is my "winter uniform": coat, button down, jeans and boots - basically what I wear most days because it's too cold in the morning to attempt anything fancy in the outfit department.


This was on Saturday, when I fancied it up with some lipstick and a beret because I was going out with friends.


Forever21 coat, UNIQLO shirt, Jeans West jeans, Wittner boots, souvenir beret.


Technically, it doesn't really get cold enough in Sydney for head-warming gear.


After trying all kinds of stretching methods with these boots, I think it's time to accept that they will probably forever be a size too small. I am never going to buy too-small shoes again, breaking these in was hell.


Gratuitous photo of my face; MAC's Russian Red is the best lipstick ever, I'm glad I let my friends bully me into buying it at Heathrow duty free because it was so much cheaper than it is here.

If you're wondering about the increase in outfit posts I'm doing lately on what's meant to be a lifestyle blog - it's because, well, I basically have no life right now. I did however hit up Vivid Sydney on Tuesday evening, I'll get those pictures edited and up sometime over the weekend. For now, here's my 2011 Vivid post (looking at these old pictures makes me wonder if I've lost a bit of touch with photography).

  2. Agreed, Sydney has pretty dismal weather at the moment, it looks like it's going to be a particularly cold winter :( I'm going to Vivid Sydney tomorrow night, I hope it's going to be as good as everybody says it is!

  4. Your duffle coat is exceptionally cute! I really like this outfit - any splash of red and black anywhere is a winning combination! IT IS definately colder now :( I might sound like a stalker but were to at Stockmarket on campus on Wednesday? Cause I was behind you and I was too afraid to say hi and risk sounding like a stalker :< Your red pants caught my eye haha! Your lipstick compliments your coat too, hehe!

  6. It's so funny you think 15 is cold. You should see what people over here when it's 15! People go out in shorts! They're like "Hey! It's 15 degrees! It's summer" :)

  7. Ahhhh, I wish I could wear what you're wearing in winter. You look so nice, especially with that beret and that lipstick. And that lipstick does look like it's fantastic.

    And looking at your Vivid pictures from last year I remember the time I started 'really' following you. And no way, you're not losing touch with photography... you're just going through a phase! :p

  9. Yup, it's freezing. I end up wearing the same clothes over and over again because it's too cold in the morning to be creative!

  10. Haha yeah, it's already so cold here :( Boo. Apparently living in europe isn't enough for me to not wear layers like a tourist. Anyway. I like your coat! It's so cute and it has the best colour ever.

  21. Lovely outfit! I think winter styles are the most appealing, because you can do so much, with layers, and jackets, etc.
