Dreaming of warm weather

Isabel Marant top, Karen Walker skirt and bracelet, Helmut Lang blazer, Vintage boots, Alexander Wang emile tote, Juliet & Company necklace

I think I’m in some kind of a funk. One where all I can do is dream of sunny days where I’m dressed simply in a light blouse/t-shirt and a skirt, rather than wanting to face the reality of what each day has truly been bringing – cold, cold and more cold. While I might be faced with a barrage of Fall inspiration from many of the blogs I frequent, I can’t help but seem oblivious to it for the most part, only stopping to take note of re-emerging trends like rich burgundy tones and lashings of leather. Whatever this is, it’s proving to be a real hinderance to getting dressed in the morning, as I prefer to fawn over floaty summer dresses than look for something which is actually appropriate to wear. This usually results in my usual grey/black fallbacks, all I can say is I wish Summer would hurry up!

    I have so much love for that Helmut Lang blazer! I’m with you on wishing the warmer weather would hurry itself along, but I’m very much enjoying your outfits lately! ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    Oh poor Wellington and its weather! Melbourne has been all over the show, 12 degrees one day, 30 degrees the next day, and then thunderstorms and rain the day after that. At least I get to wear a variety of summer / winter outfits I guess.

    And to answer your question you posted on my blog, Yes! I do plan on coming back to Welly next Feb / March! Can’t wait to see my kitty again! You, Nina and me will have to have an outing of some sort?

    Hope Summer arrives in Welly soon ๐Ÿ™‚

    I NEED that blazer. Helmut Lang is a master of constructed look. After seeing how you wear your skirts, I think it’s time I start adding a couple to my rather meager collection (aka the lone ranger from Karen Walker).

    I totally know what you mean about fallbacks and I also tend to seek out darker colors at times, and I’m loving this black and gold look on you! What an absolutely beautiful skirt. Love the gold print and how the blazer adds that extra edge to the entire ensemble. Love your style babe!

    That skirt is just gorgeous!

    how frustrating re: the weather! i’d be going insane if I couldn’t wear spring-y outfits.

    if it’s any consolation, you rock autumn/winter outfits better than anyone, and this outfit is no exception xx

    I totally adore that skirt! such a beautiful pop of metallic peeking out amongst all the black! gorgeous contrast ๐Ÿ™‚
