Winter Challenges


"What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness"
- John Steinbeck

There have been a number of cold snaps passing through Auckland these last few weeks. The cold weather has really been challenging my styling skills. It’s become oh-so-tempting to just throw on leggings and an oversized jumper for those early uni starts (that may have happened today, oops!). For this outfit I tried something a little different. In winter I pretty much live in jeans, so I mixed it up a bit pairing this black asymmetrical skort with black tights.

Scarf : Postie Plus
Shoes : Hannahs 
Bag c/o OASAP


I really think it’s the jacket that made this outfit. The black and white detailing takes the outfit up it to a whole new level. But don’t be fooled, this outfit was still super comfy and easy to wear. 

Side note - these photos were hilarious to edit. I was having some wind issues hence the huge laughs.

  7. Love your outfit, especially the jacket! Will have to search Boohoo for it :D I know what you mean with the weather, I've tried to stop reaching for the jeans but it's just too hard.
