If there’s one season where I shine – it’s winter. I love channelling my best onion by layering up my knits and throwing over my coats to give them the airtime they deserve. Living in Sydney means our winters aren’t as long or bitter as they might be in other parts of the world, but it does get properly cold and coats are necessary to keep warm. Admittedly, my coat collection is totally unnecessary for the proportion of time I actually spend in winter, but we’re a pretty weak bunch here and I personally take the opportunity to whip out a coat despite our mild winters.

I wanted to talk through an outfit I wore this weekend which I really enjoyed wearing. Despite the outfit being on the casual and comfortable end of the spectrum, it was true to my personal style and I felt chic and elevated. I didn’t think too much when putting it together and it’s made up entirely of good quality staples in my wardrobe (which are probably very similar to wardrobe staples you own).

Let’s start with my base layer which you can’t even see in any of these photos – my Arket merino knit (similar here) – which has been my go-to base layer for the past few years. I consider it to be my “going out thermal” layer as it provides the necessary warmth and insulation I need to keep me nice and toasty. I’ve popped my Everlane cashmere crew neck on top, which I’ve had for the past 4 years. I’m relying on one of my favourite pairs of jeans in my wardrobe from Nobody Denim which are a few years old (and might still be available on sale here). By today’s standards they’re probably a little old-fashioned, given their slim profile, but the geriatric millennial in me still loves them! I’m sporting my newest wardrobe addition, a grey cashmere wool coat from The Curated (US/UK/EU link, AU link) which was sent to me a few weeks ago from the brand. I’m so fortunate to receive product from brands I love and shop from, and The Curated is probably to blame for my extremely healthy coat collection. I love the London style coat (US/UK/EU link, AU link), it’s one of my favourites in my wardrobe. I’ve already got it in navy and chocolate melange so I’m very excited to welcome the charcoal grey version to the family. 

Accessories wise, I’ve spruced things up a little in the shoes department, relying on my chocolate brown and yellow sambas which I consider to be a huge step up from the classic white and black versions. I snagged my pair from Net-A-Porter where they’ve sold out, but you can still get your hands on a pair from here . I’ve been reaching for these so often in the past couple of months.

Finally, I’ve finished things off with the Bellroy crossbody bag which you’re all probably very familiar with and my white tortoiseshell sunglasses from Status Anxiety which (surprisingly) remain on my face despite the absence of a nose bridge (Asian person problems). 

As always, thanks for stopping by!
