Friday before a long weekend feels pretty great huh?!! Well imagine my excitement at having all of next week off to hang out with my lovely Mum who is visiting I see lots of cafe hopping and window shopping ahead.
But back to boots – it really is perfect boot wearing season and with end of season sales starting ( yes in the first week of Winter) so get shopping! There is a boot shape and heel size for everyone and it will often just come down to trying lots on. I know some women struggle with boots to fit larger calves – my tips are look for ones with elastic or stretch ( these black beauties above would be ideal) and also give ankle boots a try. While black is tots fab, lighter coloured boots can be just as versatile and coloured ones help break up your black and grey winter uniform.

Despite it being the season when we usually reach for black – I’m enjoying wearing some softer palettes. I love the versatility of this camo/military green colour – it’s a great neutral colour that’s a little bit more interesting than denim.
I think the title pretty much sums up this FFF. After seeing this post from Alicia – I’m smitten with this colour palette. I also like the toughness of that skirt and those heels to balance the sweetness of the blush and grey.
Got your eye on anything? any colour palette you’re playing around with?

Remember this skirt? It’s certainly getting a workout. For this ensemble I wore it with a casual military jacket and simple white tee to tone down the sequins for Sunday brunch. Yes I was still way over dressed (story of my life).
I’m a huge supporter of Witchery’s white shirt campaign. It is terrifying and unacceptable that one woman dies every 10 hours from ovarian cancer. 100% of the proceeds from this important campaign go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation to fund research into early detection. It is such a worthy cause.
And the latest pieces? Gorgeous. I’ve picked a few of my faves –a lace button up, silk blouse and shirt with studded collar detail. Oh and that tee is too cute! There are also some great accessories in the campaign like this sequin collar and there are also options for that man in your life.
It’s a cliche (and for a good reason) but a white shirt is a must-have item is ANY women’s wardrobe. Except perhaps for the LBD, there isn’t an item any more important to own. They go with EVERYTHING from pencil skirts at work, that fancy datenight mini or jeans on the weekend – they are your wardrobe warrior. Worn tucked in, out, tied at the waist or belted they have the ability to step any outfit up a notch.
1. The perfect winter coat.
2. This bronze palette is gorgeous and such good value. Now that’s a Benefit
3. Love this against an all black outfit. It’s also pretty special with navy and grey.
4. A total luxe bag and investment buy but I cannot stopping thinking about this satchel.
5. Totally flattering and a little badass.
6. I love Winter hats and there is shape that suits everyone. This fedora is all age appropriate. Bless.

I adore this time of year. I reckon Autumn is on par with Spring as my favourite season. I’m so grateful to leave in a place where you really experience the seasons. I love the clear, crisp days and beautiful surroundings that are beginning to change colour. It’s also a great time to get dressed. Not too cold that you’re lost in a sea of stockings and scarves but still cool enough to get away with a few more layers and , as I managed to in these shots, a big coat thrown over your shoulders ever so nonchalantly.
Are you enjoying the cool change? What is your fave season to get dressed for?
I’m loving al the graphic knits around at the moment. This Jcrew one – although very pricey – is just so, well, darling. Play up the cheekiness of the sweater for night or play it down with tougher fabrics – like black leather – for 9 to 5.

Sometimes I struggle with something clever to call my posts. As I walked into the loungeroom on this day my husband said: ‘You look like a giant latte’. Thanks honey… I think. Anyway I guess he was sort of right – I was trying to achieve a monochromatic look based on creams and caramels. Wearing variations of one colour family is super chic and flattering. The red lip adds the exclamation point.
No longer is metallic and sequins just for night. I think the easiest way to make this flashy fabric daytime appropriate is to pair it with natural fabrics like cotton and linen. Also please don’t pile on the jewellery – wearing sequins is all the bling you need.
