FML: Polkadot Chic

Coat: Japan | Blouse: Zara | Pants: Zara | Shoes: Wittner


Unlike Siree, I have a serious lack of winter clothes!  I find winter too cold that I often opt for comfort rather than style (I know, the blasphemy!).

It’s still pretty cold in Sydney and during one of my winter hauls, I found these cute polkadot pants from Zara.  Loving the vintage vibes, I bought them! Also on sale (and also from Zara) I found my new favourite blouse.  The photos don’t show it that well, but it’s a really nice, casual-chic looking blouse and I absolutely love the tiny button detailing.

On a side note, this was the last shoot I did in my apartment!  Two weekends ago I moved back home with the ‘rents for a myriad of different reasons – my apartment block was going to be knocked down at some point in the near future, my house mate was moving out and finding a new one is a tedious and terrible process and also, I’m going to France in a month and the prospect of paying rent while being on holiday with the possibility of not having a house mate – or a new one that I would know nothing about – wasn’t a pleasant one.

So here I am, feeling like I’ve taken a step back in life, but marching on full forward regardless.

    That white blouse is lovely – and the polka dot pants are great! I always have the hardest time finding good pants!

      Thanks Mica!

      Haha it’s been good and slightly tough, but not as bad as I thought!

    Very classic look, very stylish; I defy you to claim you have no elegant winter clothes – these are terrific.

    And I’m looking forward to your adventures in France!
