Autumn Layers

I love autumn, the weather is cooling down but it's not so cold that it feels like Antarctica if you go out without a coat! For a lovely crisp day nothing is better than a long shirt, tights and a light jacket. To complete the outfit I threw on my beloved fedora, a pair of healed ankle boots and a few layers of necklaces. I love these necklaces, they are quirky and add a little personality to my outfit. I'm wearing an owl (a bit hard to see in these photos), a sonic screwdriver from Doctor Who and both a serotonin and a dopamine molecule. The Shoes were $5 from Salvos and the Jacket was from the local thrift store. I love the cut and colour of this jacket and it was a steal at $4! In recent news I have started having allergic reactions to much of my make up and beauty products and have been madly searching for replacements - preferably more natural products. I'm thinking as I search I might write reviews of some of the products I try, what do you think?

The Last of Summer

Winter seems to have arrived full force here with only the occasional sunny, but still freezing, day... but before it did I managed to wear this little outfit for a glorious day of wine and good food in the Barossa Valley - Murray Street Vineyards might be my new favorite place! As not to confuse anyone I will admit that I didn't take these photos while in the Barossa (I'm really terrible at actually taking photos while I am out) so I did a little shoot of a few outfits about a week later (you may see this location a lot!)

The Skirt was a find at $1 from the local thrift shop and the top and shoes both came from my charity shop binge in Western Australia (Bunbury and surrounds) and I can't remember for sure prices or exact locations as I think I went to every thrift shop within 20km and a few that were further away! I do know that I came home with a suitcase that was about twice as heavy and was only 1kg under the weight restriction!
