Love. Want. NEED

My 'summer' wardrobe has well and truly been exhausted. The winter woolies and heavy coats have been resurrected and the weather has certainly taken a turn for the worst. There's not a day now where I can leave the house minus a coat.

Bring out the khaki (I really have a soft spot for the colour - especially when my jacket collection is concerned), seek out the cosy knitwear, and find a hardy pair of boots.

My autumn/winter Lust List:

  • Camouflage - a few months ago I had repeatedly declared how I wouldn't give in to buying a camo jacket. Now it seems like a basic human right!

  • The Disco Pant - In navy, I might add. Though I love my trusty skinny jeans, these add a dimension of interest to any dull winter ensemble

  • Oversized Knits - I cannot begin to profess my love of all things knitted and oversized. Comfy, cosy and stylish.

  • The leather backpack - I purchased one of the vintage variety a few weeks back, from Shutterbug (my favourite shop ever!), in tan colour. 

  • Sequins - A necessity to brighten up any outfit, perfect day or night, while also adding glam and lustre

What are your Winter staples? Do share!

Girl Goes Grunge

I have been a sort of MIA from the blogosphere as of late, apologies for that.

Anyhow I thought I could try and make up for my absence with a little outfit post.

This shirt/jacket is from Zara. I picked it up back in July and I seriously wear it all the time!
The jewel embellishment on the pocket is just beautiful and oh-so on trend for A/W 2012.
I love how it adds a feminine touch to a somewhat grungy khaki shirt. 
I also love how it seamlessly goes with almost everything in my wardrobe.

The shorts are from The Silver Factory. And, yes they were one of my lust-haves prior to the summer and I got great wear out of them the past little while.
AND, they're pink, enough said.

This was quite a casual outfit, no specific occasion to dress for so I kept it comfortable and relaxed.

Hope you like.

PS. I am sorry you have to be subject to that stray strand of hair sweeping across my forehead...driving me a little nuts here, grrrr...
