Truth be told I've been working so much lately that there's barely been any time for me to put together proper outfits, so most of what I've been wearing has just been different combinations of jumpers and tracksuit pants, but I think this is a pretty good representation of what I've been feeling for when I actually leave the house. I've always been a winter person, but this year I'm already disgustingly keen for spring. For whatever reason, I just haven't been in the mood for dark colours and heavy layering, which is very, VERY unlike me. Haven't worn a scarf in weeks. Resisting jackets. I've even been wearing lilac nail polish instead of black. WHO HAVE I BECOME?

This is especially surprising given the recent rise in occult activity taking place in our apartment, but it's whatever. C'est la vie. I'm sure some witches wear pastels. In any case, history tells us this is only a phase and I'll soon be back to looking like a storm cloud, but for now we're experiencing a slightly lighter palette.


Due to the fact that I seem to be perpetually cold and tired at the moment my style has become very comfort-based, as evidenced by the abundance of soft fabrics, but I can also feel it moving in a more preppy direction. Calling it now, if I'm going to embrace winter this year it's definitely going to be with the help of a collared shirt. Or six. Seriously, I'm all about that button down. 

I am also particularly obsessed with that cardigan. It doesn't look like much, but it's ridiculously flattering and it feels like wearing air, plus it makes me feel like a really well put-together housewife just having some down time at home. Even when I wear it outside.

I'm beginning to think that my enthusiasm for spring stems from the fact that I'm very aware this is going to be my last set of Australian seasons for a while, so I want to take advantage of as much sun as I can before we head off to England: Land Of Perpetual Shade. I feel like that makes sense. All I want is summer clothing (WHO. AM. I.) and Bellinis (still me) and beach houses and WARMTH. I want to wear layers, but very, very thin ones involving minimal fabric and I want to wear summer shoes.
Basically my love of cold weather had best be back my January, lads, or we're going to be in for a rough time. 
Prayers appreciated.


One thing I have been thinking about a lot lately is the fact that I'm so frickin excited to start shopping again once I've moved. A combination of trying to save and being aware that I already have far more clothes than I'm actually going to be able to take is stopping me from buying anything new at the moment, but I have SO MANY IDEAS. I want to buy SO MUCH. But I CAN'T. I mean I could, but it would be a bad idea. Seriously though, do you have any idea how difficult it is to go through a reinvention phase this intense (and prolonged) and not be able to buy any new clothes? Very dang hard, yall. Very dang hard.

Innywho, this is what's going on at present. Or what has been going on, really, because I've already started to transition into my next phase. So stay tuned for that.

In the meantime, I'm going to go get changed into some trackies.
