celine grey knit sweater

One of the first things I sacrificed when tackling the ambitious task of fitting my entire wardrobe into two (!!) suitcases, were a number of my cumbersome, woollen winter knits. The soft cosy kinds which envelope you in warmth on the crispest of winter days. My justification? The lack of a ‘real’ winter in Sydney (or so I’m told), and the need to allocate that precious suitcase space to what else other than shoes. In hindsight, I suppose I was a little too thorough, as at last count, I had a meagre choice of two options, a charcoal black or a nutty oatmeal – notwithstanding the few lighter jerseys tucked away in my wardrobe. So much for being prepared…

With that in mind, as we face a miserably wet weekend, I’m looking for something to meet me in the middle. A pale grey or a warm blush loosely fitted turtleneck would see me right, worn just so with a patent midi skirt or some skinny leather trousers. And while we’re on the subject of sweaters, preferably in the softest of cashmeres. Wishful thinking perhaps?

    Oh gurrrrl! Love turtlenecks so much right now. I’ve settled for the thin merino style ones from Glassons and the black one makes me feel very Russian Vogue – who by the way have the best beauty videos on YouTube. x

    Only 2 suitcases?! That is very impressive!
