FIRST AND LAST

(Top, Valley Girl. Jeans, Wildpair. Coat, Glassons. Booties, Glassons. Sunglasses, Dotti. Roxy bag, North Beach)


Today marked the first day of my long awaited mid-semester break (yay), as well as the last day of winter in the Southern Hemisphere. Even though spring isn't exactly here yet, the air's starting to feel a little warmer, the sun hangs around a little longer, and we're (almost) officially one season closer to the sweet taste of summer time. To commemorate this momentous day, I decided to wear this gorgeous creamy coat from Glassons as a last goodbye to the colder months. It is definitely my favourite winter piece this season, and I'm sure it will be for many winters to come. I love that it tapers in slightly at the waist, and that hood is actually detachable (although I usually keep it on in case of any unexpected showers). Keeping the look neutral, I paired it with a spotted black & white top that peeks out and adds some texture when I unbutton the coat.

I wore this outfit out to grab some lunch with Gregor at Bruschetteria in Elliot Stables. Being a lover of all foods Italian, this place has been on my to-try list for a while. The food tasted as delicious as it looks; it probably had something to do with the fact that it was covered in parmesan cheese, olive oil and pesto. And at $10 each for the two plates above, it was a pretty good deal too! Afterwards, I meet up with my friend Apoorva for a classic coffee catch-up about boys, clothes and furniture shopping. All in all, a pretty successful start to the holidays.

Happy weekend everyone! xx

  1. Love that coat! I work at Glassons and I saw it today haha :) The looseness of the tee looks really good when it sticks out - great choice! Ohh the platters look amazing, especially the bruschetta like one!
