Outfit

This is the first time I've used blogger since the new layout was introduced and I don't know about everyone else but I'm finding it incredibly confusing. I'm sure I'll get used to it eventually but today it took me ages just to work out how to compose a new post!

This weekend Rydog and I went away for a night to the Southern Highlands which is located about an hour and a half from Sydney. It is an area that I'm very familiar with because I used to visit these towns frequently with my parents when I was a child. The landscape and scenery is very beautiful and there are so many wonderful photo opportunities. I was planning to blog at least three outfits while in the Southern Highlands this weekend but in the end I could only photograph one since it started raining. We even decided to drive back much earlier than expected on Sunday afternoon because of the rain only to find almost an equal amount of rain in Sydney. At least I have one set of outfit posts.

Orange seems to be one of the most stylish colours to wear at the moment and is very popular when it comes to colour blocking. It is everywhere in the shops, I have noticed! However, I must admit that I have never liked orange and prior to a couple of weeks ago almost nothing in my wardrobe was orange. So I decided to introduce this skirt, with an orange stripe, to my collection. It allows me to wear a relatively small amount of orange without it completely taking over my outfit. I love wearing just this amount of orange and it allows me to combine it with pink for a colour blocking effect. This outfit actually reminds me of my colour blocking dress that I posted in the earlier days of my blog a couple of years ago here. I adore this pink coat at the moment and I will definitely be wearing it a lot this coming winter. Last week was the first time I've ever worn my pink coat. I bought it many months ago but only now has it been cold enough to wear it. I bought it in summer so it was a bargain!

Unfortunately it is back to university this week. I didn't complete much of the work I'd planned and I enjoyed a much more relaxing holiday than I should have.  This is mainly because I discovered the Crime Investigations Channel on tv and rediscovered my love for knitting. These interests have taken over and for weeks I've done not much else with my life.

I missed Juliette, so I decided to take my Snow Leopard instead!

I am going to steal this coat from you. Just FYI.
The new Blogger layout really confuses me, too. It took me a half hour to figure out how to create a new post.

Pink + houndstooth look amazing on you...so beautiful!
And I found the new blogger layout a little confusing also. There are a few good things about it, but it'll definitely take some time. :)
