If you’re in the southern hemisphere right about now, you’ll be experiencing my (sort of) favourite season: winter, where it’s incredibly easy to add on the layers and the kgs. Usually, I have no problem with winter – I actually love it, but for some reason, I find my fashion limited to mostly jeans and jerseys this year. Don’t get me wrong, I love being snuggled up in a blanket with a cup of tea and a nice book to read or movie to watch as much as the next girl, but this week’s weather, particularly in Johannesburg, has got me feeling less than content.
I decided to add a little colour to my all black ensemble and bring in a printed shirt – seeing as prints are all the rage these days. The top I’m wearing is from Forever 21 UK, my beanie is from H&M UK, my cardigan is from Woolworths, my jeans are from Zara UK and my boots are from a quaint shoe store in Essex, England.
I’m going to attempt to look fashionable this winter, even when the weather is at its worst, because you can’t change the weather, but you can adapt your style. I’m looking forward to spring, when it’s warm enough to wear my sundresses, skirts and shorts but it’s not as hot as those December heat waves of 2011! Until then, though, stay warm!
