Winter is just around the corner for Australia and lets be honest there isn’t much of a temperature change between Autumn and Winter down here but nonetheless I used it as an excuse to do some shopping. I have managed to put together my perfect winter night out look. Pair it with a blazer? Sure. Do I own a blazer? No. Don’t worry though, it’s at the top of my ever-growing ‘to buy’ list. I love the monochrome look here and I think a bright pink lip is the perfect way to finish it off.
Top: Let me just say I LOVE this top. I ordered it online from Newlook and it is one of those items that is a statement piece in itself even though it is black and white. And it wins the award for first checkered shirt in my wardrobe. Weird, right? Took me long enough to jump on that band wagon. It is like a soft, wetsuit material so quite thick, and perfect for winter.
Jeans: these are just your basic black skinny jeans. An essential piece for any winter wardrobe. I had to purchase a second pair of these just because I wear them so much in winter and at some point they need to be washed and what do I wear when they are in the wash? My second pair. I JUST LOVE JEANS, ok? Cool. I got these ones from Sportsgirl in Australia for $90AUD and I’m sure I could get some cheaper somewhere else but I wanted really soft and comfortable ones and that I did. Side note: I do have to get these altered because I am so small they are too long.
Necklace: Another Newlook purchase. I like the way it sticks with a monochrome these whilst also adding a different layer to the outfit(#fashionwriter)
Shoes: elegant, classic & classy. 3 brilliant words to define a pair of brilliant shoes. Pair them with anything to dress up an outfit. I love, I die. However, I must wear them somewhere with seating because my tootsies can also die throughout the night. Beauty is pain right ladies? These ones were $50AUD from Bardot.
Watch: I could go on for years about my love for this Marc Jacobs watch. But I won’t. Just know that this is my fave item of jewellery and I wear it all day everyday. It’s like a second skin, that is not waterproof and can smash but looks great.
There we have it, I just wished I had somewhere to wear this outfit. But sadly this exam break is causing me to wear a lot more pyjamas then heels, however I am comfy ALL the time. You win some you loose some right?
