My plan this winter is to wear white. A LOT. I’m adding to my wardrobe and I pretty much am planning to add the snowy shade to everything I wear. Stains pending. Haha. But I love the white against my skin tone and copper hair colour. Adding black, grey and denim is my entire plan. Don’t expect much colour from me this winter. I’m going some version of Scandinavian, an Aussie version. I like colour, but meh, maybe another season. Ha.

Do you ever do that? Just decide that for a while all you are going to do is dress like this, do that, whatever? I do. Sometimes I realise I’ve done it and I have only worn black and white for a week. Other times it’s part of a strategic plan that does or doesn’t pay off/work out. This time I added denim {hello chambray} back in because of this jacket. I mean, why wouldn’t you? A repeat from a previous season this beauty is just as stylish, effortlessly cool and chic as it was the first time it was released. Well done team, well done.

More pics? Yeah I thought you’d be keen.

I wore this outfit for my birthday dinner. It was a risky choice actually because I had a local Indian restaurant firmly in my sights. And me, I’m a notorious spiller of things. But I made it out alive. The dress was really easy to wear. I’m really glad I chose the white. It’s beautiful and romantic looking without being too girly or over the top. The gauzy top material is beautiful. I’ll be interested to see if I manage to catch it on things though… Gosh, can you imagine me ripping a hole in it? Yeah. Me too. Clumsy. Haha.

Speaking of such things. It did require a slip for modesty sake and the material lends itself to needing it. I was thinking about it while I wore it and I’m not sure even decent underwear work here. So get your nana on ladies. A slip is essential. But heck, it’s another woot woo layer to add to the delicious feel of the whole garment, right?  Plus is styling for Spring and we are in autumn. Layers will help bridge the gap.

    Love this outfit! The boots are adorable.

    • Thank you! I picked up these boots last year and OMG, amazing, they go with everything.

  • TheLifeSheMade

    I love this – it’s so fresh. Very inspiring.

    I always love a pop of white in my outfits.

    • Thaaaaanks! Love white, love the idea of the crispness and the shiny brightness of it.

  • Honest

    That jacket doesn’t fit.

    • One of the problems with having broad shoulder and big boobs I’m afraid. They never do.

  • Steph

    I love love love this dress! I need it asap. You are so pretty. The colours in this outfit suit you perfectly.

    • It’s a beautiful dress. Lovely and soft. Thank you. Much appreciated! x

  • Sydney Shop Girl

    Wish I could pull off taupe booties with white. I will live vicariously through your wardrobe, M!

    This dress and jacket is really gorgeous on you and your right it makes your copper hair and skin pop all kinds of wow! I do not do much white but thats because I spill stuff too! I know what you mean about picking a colour and going with it. Im kind of over red at the moment am wearing alot of pink and purple again!

    • Thank you lovely. I hear you. You met me. I’m a spill accident waiting to happen. Thank goodness for napisan! Haha. Oooo pink and purple. Lovely.

  • sheribombblog

    La la LOVE this! Everything just works, particularly with your skintone and hair colour. I love how the jacket is really kick ass while the dress is more classy and feminine but then the way it hugs your curves is a bit woot woo. This outfit covers ALLLL the bases! Well done!

    • Thaaaaaanks lady. As soon as I put it all together I was like, oh la la, this is a new favourite. Absolutely. And you’ve summed it up, I think all that is why it works. Phew. 😉

  • Kylie Gardner

    Simply stunning! I will be adding white to my wardrobe big time this winter, but not true white. I suit more off whites. I love this look on you.

    • Thank you Kylie. One of the ladies that I work with said the same thing, she will wear cream or ivory but saves white white for spring and summer. Like something to look forward to.

  • LOVE! I’m actually really liking white lately, and I was one who would NEVER wear light colours, let alone white, but I’m loving how fresh and bright it is. I’m just a bit scared that I’m going to get it dirty! I would not have been able to eat Indian without spilling any, I can guarantee that! I love it paired with the jacket too. So good!

    • I’m hearing you lady! Absolutely. And heck, if you get it dirty, that’s what napisan in for. Indian was a challenge, let me tell you. I was sUPER careful. Haha.

    Great outfit and I absolutely love your hair colour. Would you mind me asking what colour you use?

    • Thank you. Sorry Im not sure what the exact colour is but I’ll do my best to find out shade or level or something.

      • Tess

        Thanks Melissa! :)) I’d really appreciate it. I’ve had a disaster with going red once. Love red hair but just trying to find the right shade. Yours is it !:)

  • Natasha David

    Love this look! It really suits you!
