I was going to say that my love affair with capes started a few years ago but truth be told it can probably be traced all the way back to my childhood love of princesses. The only thing that fascinated me more than their gorgeous dresses was the cape that went with it. For example, my favourite Belle outfit in Beauty and the Beast was the one she wears out in the snow. Iconic!
My favourite season is finally here! There’s nothing better than wearing boots and knits and there’s no prettier time of the year, so it’s no wonder I’m excited to start coming up with cosy autumn outfits. The only problem is that here in Melbourne it can get pretty chilly all of a sudden, even though it’s not winter yet, so sometimes it’s hard to resist the urge to start bundling up early. After all, knee-high boots and skirts are a cute combination, but they don’t really keep you warm.
It’s probably obvious by now that I can’t wait for summer to be over. As much as I love wearing dresses, having to hide from the sun and feeling hot all the time gets old really fast. Though Melbourne weather is generally pretty terrible, with extremely hot summers, there’s one thing I usually hate about it that actually ends up working in my favour: how unreliable it is.
I’ve mentioned this before but over the last few months I’ve been going through a style crisis of sorts. It’s more than just opening my wardrobe and every now and then crying the common “I’ve got nothing to wear!” – it’s the fact that day in, day out, 90% of my clothes no longer represent who I am. It’s not great, but the news is that I think I’m finally starting to figure out the kind of style I am now striving for.
