Living in Wellington, there’s two seasons; an Autumnal Spring (it’s a mixed bag, really), and Winter. Okay maybe there’s the odd nice day – and everyone knows that you can’t beat Wellington on a good day – but for the most part, if you’re without a lightweight jacket during the ‘in-between’ seasons, you’re in trouble. On the bright side, it’s given me the opportunity to handle transitional dressing – the leather jacket, a cotton stripe coat, or in this case, a lurex threaded oversized biker jacket.

It’s all about the layers. A breton striped top with a cotton shirt underneath, a silk frill tank just visible from under an oversized sweatshirt, mixing the heavy with the lightweight. Semi-sheer tights with woollen grey socks scrunched around the ankles just peeking out of the top of a pair of chelsea boots. As the days heat up, peel away at the layers until all you’re left with is a silk tank and the skirt (or in my case, the las palmas mesh stripe top, a literal breath of fresh air), rinse and then repeat in reverse.

    I’m loving these sets that you are wearing and both of those pieces are divine.This combo is too good and my kind of layering! 😉

    Love your blog! Thanks for the comment! I would love to go visit Australia and all the beautiful sites. I am also on the same boat as you, wherever I go-even if its 80 degrees Fahrenheit- i have to bring a jacket with me. I know its silly but what if I get cold, haha. I love the grey wool set you are waring and the striped shirt peeping through-very chic. would love to follow each other!
