2014 Week 10: My Wednesday Style Collective....

The other day I decided I'd have a bit a post pregnancy wardrobe clearout, but whilst I was doing so I got distracted......you know as you do. I got to thinking about the change of season how it will start to cool down and I kind of accidentally on purpose started playing dress ups with some new additions to my wardrobe.

I know you're laughing reading this because I know I can't be the only one who gets distracted doing a similar job when clearing out their wardrobe and instead ends up playing dress ups. Fortunately we've had rainy weather on and off here for a few days so the temperatures have been cooler. So I thought it appropriate to finally try this new to me Osti number. Which then turned into me ripping open a pack of new tights I had tucked away for the cooler months......you know because I just had to see how it would look. Then I remembered some ankle boots a friend had handed down to me. Then suddenly I'm loving the combination and dreaming of other tight colour combinations with this dress and different boots.

I say hell yes bring on Autumn and Winter.......Autumn start your magic I'm ready for ya.

Dress - Thrifted
Tights - Retail
Ankle Boots - hand me downs

Of course I was taken with the dress it's green and I predict it'll be seeing quiet a bit action over the cooler months. The days may still be a little hot, but the afternoon and evenings are cooling down. But all I have to say is thank goodness to it at least being officially Autumn now, just give it a few weeks and it'll be cooling down some more........I can't wait.

It does make me laugh that you Aussies get excited about boots and tights and we Brits hate it. Your cooling down weather is still probably hotter than a heatwave here!
Great dress and perfect with those tights and ankle boots! x

We surely are kindred spirits Trudie....our love of all things old & green, & dreaming of the cooler months. I am dying for summer to be done & dusted. Tights & cardigans sounds like heaven to me. Great outfit, I love it teamed with the tights & shoes. Xx

I guess it's that thing where we all like to long for what we don't have. It is funny here on the Gold Coast autumn and winter here are absolutely stunning times of the year. Clear, beautiful crisp days. We live not far from the hinterland and like to spend a lot of time there as it gets a hell of a lot more nippy.

Two peas in a pod we are. I'm on the hunt for some new to me frocks, now that I'm most definitely post pregnancy now.

That's a fab frock, and it looks great with the tights and boots. You and Leisa were obviously meant to be Brits, you'd like our climate!

I love Autumn, you get to dress up, yet it is not so cold you are swapped in layers
