I wasn't sure about doing a post without any pictures, but I want to do this now, and can always add pics later if I feel I really need to.
There is less than a month of winter to go – 1st September is officially the first day of Spring. I love winter, and all the things I do, like drinking red wine, reading books, and curling up in front of fire places. I also love the clothing. Here are the things I am going to enjoy, clothing wise, over the next month or so...
//boots//dark, dramatic make up//socks over tights//black, and more black//gloves//
I hope to get pics this week, as I definitely will be wearing all of these at some point – though perhaps not all at the same time!
I also feel a real change in the air; I am quite looking forward to Spring, too. Spring time in Melbourne is really nice. When it is a little warmer I think I'll wear:
//thick, patterned tights – the holey kind, not printed ones//white and cream//pale shoes with chunky high heels//more scarves, silky ones, and all over the place!!!//
I don't think I will ever feel 'right' with the seasons here; now I can't help but think it is nearly Autumn, subconsciously at least. I think this is why I am determined to have something of a last hurrah with the cold. And there is plenty of time for it too.
What are you looking forward to as the season changes? What clothes do you think you'll want? And how do those of you in the Southern half of the world find the fashion media influences you – if at all? I'd love to hear how others find all the AW things when we are gearing up for the opposite!
