Braving The Cold

Baring my shoulders was a bit brave last week. Seriously, who would have ever thought a Brit would struggle in a Sydney winter (owning up to this sat behind my laptop). It’s probably a little premature to be wearing a black sleeveless jumpsuit, but couldn’t resist this Fifth Label little black number from NSW boutique, Wolf & Ordnance. If you haven’t come across this boutiques Instagram, you really need to! It’s clean, crisp and bright so right up my street! They stock some amazing brands: The Fifth Label, Asilio, C&M and many more. I’m a fan of good photography and they honestly nail the aesthetic and sharp imagery on social media. I remember when I was a teenager, I would venture out on a Saturday afternoon with my friends shopping. Cardiff, the city I am from is known for it’s boutiques and arcades. I was always drawn to these smaller retailers as wanted to pick up one off pieces and brands that weren’t as widespread. I think it’s really important to shop local, and keep these boutiques alive, and it’s nice I can do the same in Australia.

Most Sydneysiders are praying for summer, but if i’m honest I actually quite like this weather (as long as I wrapped up warm at home with a nice hot cup of tea). Unfortunately it’s no way warm enough to wear this jumpsuit alone, so layering is key. I opted for an Asilio Label coat for added length and a contrast in colour against the black. It looks quite thin, but don’t let that fool you. It’s so warm, no scarf was needed. The leather pockets add extra luxe to the look.

I was torn whether to style shoes or boots, but opted for the latter. Wearing shoes would have made the look feel more dressy, and wanted the outfit to feel relaxed to resinate the comfort of the look. Bulky boots from Urge Footwear were a great choice, and really loving that wooden styled heel. They are currently on sale, so if you’re after an end of season bargain these are your babies! I can definitely see me styling these with a bohemian styled dress in the summer.
