It's been raining non stop for days now and for the first time ever I was very brave and ventured out into the cold for some outfit pictures. Anyone who knows me in "real life" would tell you that I don't deal with the rain very well; even the smallest amount of rain makes me worry about my hair texture or my shoes and clothes getting wet so this was a big deal for me. I felt like a very dedicated blogger; it was absolutely freezing taking photos.  I'm not too sure if it will be happening again. I have no idea how those of you living in locations much colder than Australia, manage to do it! At least these pictures capture the true nature of winter; it's not always bright, warm and sunny here! It also gave me the chance to show you my new coat from Review, my new scarf  and my lovely heart umbrella which never makes an appearance. I won this Topshop scarf from a giveaway on Hamida's blog which is called Loosely Tied to Fashion. I was so excited to win and very happy that it is so beautiful and totally my style. The design is so sweet and gorgeous. It is officially my favourite scarf I've ever owned. I also noticed that it's much warmer than the scarves they sell in Australia which is very helpful especially since I'll start getting up early in the cold for work soon. So much of my thinking revolves around the prospect of work at the moment. Even though I shouldn't be spending too much money on clothes right now I've bought a few warm winter clothes and pieces for work which I will show you later. I thought this coat would be great for traveling to and from the big city for work  especially given that it's longer than any of my other coats. It was also a bargain! It's from the current sale at Review and there was only one left which was luckily in my size. Don't you just love it when that happens? By the time this coat had been discounted a number of times, in combination with me being a Review member, it ended up being 70% off the original retail price. Just like the one which I posted here, I've found some great deals when it comes to coats. I love the bright pink, especially the way it stands out in the winter. I also adore the buttons and the peter pan style collar (which is difficult to see while wearing a scarf).

I'm not a big fan of rain either! I hate when I have to walk to class when it's raining. I always get soggy clothes or shoes.
You look so cute in your pink coat though! I love your umbrella and shoes too. I'm kind of jealous of your cold weather. I'm already getting sick of warm-weather clothes.

I live in rainy Vancouver. I'm one of the unrealistic that always imagines Australia as sunny and warm and beachy. At least you look sunny in your beautiful pink coat...and the umbrella is adorable too.

You're adorable! I love the coat and umbrella. You always get the best deals.

I am a collector of coats and I have over 30! All from vintage/thrift stores, which were all cheap, and a few new ones. The only problem with them is most of them could only be worn during the autumn months because the winter months were so cold and snowy I needed my unflattering, ugly, puffy, down feather coat. I'm speaking in the past because that was when I lived in the northern US (where I lived until I was 23) and now I don't even need a coat because I live in the south. Most of my coats are still at my parents house. Wow, this is a long comment!

Good luck starting work :)

Brittney said...

You are pretty dedicated---I feel the same way when I have to do an outfit post early in the morning or on the weekend. It's hard work! :P I'm glad you got these photos though, because your umbrella and jacket are both adorable.

Taliah Ferguson said...

You look so chic. I agree, I am so not a fan of rain...only if I know I'll be cuddled up in the bed. lol. I love your umbrella and coat.


Ali Hval said...

No worries, I can totally see the peter pen collar peeking out... and my goodness, that jacket is SO cute! I'm pretty sure it was made for you. It's such a vivid pink and the button details are the perfect final touch.

Also how cute are your earrings and umbrella? You are so so good with details! :)

Kim Alston said...

Love your umbrella and coat! They are fun!

Shybiker said...

So pretty! I love how the accent in the flats echoes the main color of the outfit. You look very stylish. Good luck with the rain going away.

I'm glad you have some colourful warm winter pieces - it's so tricky to find nice cheerful winter wear. I usually go with black as it makes layering simple, haha! :)

Your coat is absolutely beautiful!

Panty Buns said...

It was very uncomfortably hot and humid today where I am, but it gets pretty cold in winter here and there is frequently snow and ice. It doesn't get nearly as cold for as long here as it does where some other fashionista bloggers I follow live. The winters are long and cold where Barbro Andersen lives in Norway and where Sarah of We Shop Therefore We are lives in Glascow, Scotland.

Rain in the winter can really give you a chill and freezing rain is dangerous. Your pink coat is a pretty colour. It's nice to pick clothes that stand out against the winter snow. Your review coat is a pretty one. Your umbrella is a pretty one too.

Try to stay warm!

Outfit photos in the rain are always so tough to get, but I think you did brilliantly! Your pink coat is just gorgeous; I'm not much of a pink girl but when it comes to coats, I think it's the best possible shade to brighten up a winter outfit :)
