Let's look at June and my top five favourite things so far in this, our first month of winter here. I can't believe we are almost halfway through winter! Noooooo! It's been warm and sunny for lots of it, even up until yesterday, but that seems to be pretty normal here and I just know that we'll have the proper cold stuff soon. Oh I can't wait! Being cosy is the nicest thing ever. I want to enjoy more slow cooked meals, read books with a blanket on my knees (and dream of that open fireplace the whole time!) (and yes, I am declaring to the world I am a bit of a nanna!) and have friends over for a Christmas in July dinner. I also love going out into the cold night, even if it's raining; then all the streetlights blur into colourful sparkly stars and everything is shiny and slick and beautiful. Oh, I am such a winter person!
So, my favourite five things! Just in time for winter, my vintage cape arrived. An absolutel favourite! I had been looking for the longest time – over a year, for sure – and it took an aaaage to arrive but I am in love with it. Olive green with shot bronze lining; perfection. I know someone who has a vintage cropped rust colour cape and I think I could roll them for it, haha! But I am more than happy with my green one. All time wardrobe staple!
Instead, we'll look at this golden mustard vintage dress I thrifted. Rare! Definitely my favourite thrifted thing for a long time. It needs to be hemmed as it's been chopped (I think there might have been a water stain) and then it will need the ironing of its life but it is perfect. I really can't wait to wear this one, and of course I'll post it! You know what? I think I want to wear it tomorrow night. I'd better get cracking!
