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.
The best thing about living in the Southern Hemisphere is being able to know what the main hits will be next season just by checking out what’s currently trending on the other side of the globe. One of the things I’ve been watching out for is the white shirt with blue pinstripes. There’s been a few of them around this summer, but by the time autumn comes around they will probably be everywhere. Sleeveless or with long sleeves, with extra ruffles or some embroidery… You pick!
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.
