However, the weather in Melbourne has suddenly become bitterly cold, and I think I need some new winter essentials to get me through the next few months!
Leopard print ballet flats (Sambag)
Okay so technically these aren't really "winter shoes" but I have wanted some leopard ballets for such a long time! Last month's Shop Til You Drop magazine featured a really cute (and affordable) pair from Marcs, but of course they're no longer in store - hate that! These pony hair ballets from Sambag look even better.
A cropped peacoat for casual wear - (Marcs, Country Road)
Most of my coats are distinctly corporate so they can look a little odd paired with jeans and boots at the footy on the weekend. Either of these peacoats would be perfect over skinny jeans with my Demons scarf!
Striped blazer - (Marcs)
I'm obsessed with anything striped at the moment, and I've admired this blazer for awhile. It's not something I need in my wardrobe though... (on that note, do I actually need any of these things?)
Black suede over-the-knee boots (Tony Bianco)
I've needed new flat black boots for the last 2-3 years so this year I am definitely on the hunt for the perfect pair! I have a feeling I could be too short to pull these off so I'll have to try them on before making up my mind... perhaps I would be better off with a shorter pair.
A new (black) cropped cardi (Country Road)
I accidentally washed the black cardigan I wear to work with my regular load last weekend and it came out with a big hole in it! :( Finding a new cardi is a must. I quite like the look of this one in black.
Basket stitch knit (Trenery)
I admired this lovely knit in the new Trenery catalogue, and there is a spend and save on at the moment! Might have to try it on tomorrow...
Black suede heels (Country Road)
Purely for work... I love suede heels but don't yet have a pair in my collection!
Cigarette leg trousers (Marcs)
A staple item that is missing from my wardrobe.
Animal print scarf (Witchery)
I just purchased a couple of inexpensive leopard print scarves but this one is perfection... must have!!
YSL Gloss Volupte gloss sticks
A cross between a lipstick and a lip gloss? Yes, please!
