I am not sure what happened with the weather in Sydney. It has been chillingly cold recently. I remember going to the beach wearing shorts 2 weeks ago. Now I have to come back to layering and wearing wool instead of cotton. Woollen knitted top, woollen turtle neck jumper (the same one I wore here), woollen tight pants, booties – covered from head to toe! And? It still felt quite cold. See my red nose?

Anyways, back to fashion talk. I adore the simple cut and seamed details of this knitted Country Road top (also seen here). Even though prints and colours are big at the moment, I foresee minimalism finally taking over. So this top will stay in my wardrobe to play the important role of a winter and autumn staple item. Not only for this season but for at least a few more to come.

I had to continue with picture taking activities at home as at the beach it was the way too cold.

The Diva ring was quite a find too. Recently someone mistook it for Roberto Cavalli. Imagine how happyit made me to find out that my Diva for $12 looks like Cavalli for $1200.

Hope you are having an amazing, sunny and WARM Tuesday, my dear reader!

    (Beauty and Bows Reply) (Marusya V @CrashingRed) I wish I had of gone to IMATS, I seriously don’t know what I was thinking! Fabulous tips honey xx

    You have a fantastic Blog! I’ll definitely be following… I had to laugh when I read about your Diva ring because I’ve had a similar thing happen to me when wearing a Diva bracelet, go Diva! I’ve also just read your ABBW posts, and I’m extremely jealous that I didn’t attend… perhaps I will see you next year.

    Kisses, Melanie

    The beach scenery is gorgeous, your sacrifice of standing in the cold was definitely worth it. I like the sleek look of this outfit and your ring is lovely, also I love your nail color.

    You look so INCREDIBLE CHIC in this outfit! It is minimalistic and yet SO elegant. For me beige and black are a great combo colours, you cannot fail with those. I get my pony tail exactly like yours at work or to go out! It is so easy and so chic.
    Love the post today!!!
