Most of you know that I live in sunny, warm Queensland Australia. It doesn’t get that cold around here except for a day here or there and a handful of mornings. Mostly. A wet winter, after a wet start to the year {did someone say sunny?}, it’s been pretty chilly here. Not that I mind. I like to get rugged up for winter. Layer some knits and call it snuggle weather.

Are you a fan of winter?

Me? I’m not really a winter girl. I am made for the sunshine and the long days of summer. I thrive on the ocean, swimming and entertaining friends around a BBQ with an ice-packed beverage in my hand. Summer lovin’, that’s me. But there are SOME things that I love about winter. I love snuggly scarves, long mornings in bed snuggled under a doona and boots.

I really, really LOVE boots.

Sometimes I envy people who live in cooler climates and their ability to wear boots pretty much year-round. There’s certainly a window of time here for such things. It gets too hot too fast and boots get stashed away for the year. Though sometimes you can sneak an ankle boot in year round. Not always but that’s probably the thing I love most about winter. There’s just something so awesome about puling them on and zipping them up. What a win!

This layered outfit is something of a winter staple for me.

I mix in different body-con dresses, striped, patterned, whatever and more or fewer scarves, heavier or lighter jackets, stockings or tights replacing pants when I don’t need the warmth. Basically, if you need to attend a BBQ with friends or want to run some errands in comfort, this outfit is a must. And bonus you get heaps more wear out of your summer dresses. Yay.

And that’s about all I can manage today, I’ve had an amazing weekend and I’m suffering the ill effects of some over indulging! Not that I’m complaining, I had AN AMAZING weekend. Life’s just made better by weekend’s like this one. I hope you enjoyed yourself too. If not, I may have enjoyed myself enough for all of us. So you’re welcome. Haha.

Are you pro winter? Or is summer more your style?
