Today's entire outfit is brought to you by Boohoo! Boohoo have been one of my favourite British online stores in the last few years because everything is just so ridiculously affordable and on-trend- and I was super excited when they contacted me to do a Winter Wardrobe challenge! Now that the coat is on sale, the whole outfit comes down to only $154AUD in total. I think that's an incredible deal especially when you know a single piece (whether it be the coat, jeans or shoes) could already retail at over $100 elsewhere.

I've really been digging the long line coat trend as of late- it's versatile, warm and flattering! This one from Boohoo comes in 'one size' which means you can lend it to a friend or your mum when you're not wearing it :) The colour I chose was 'stone' but I'm also lusting after it in grey, charcoal and pink! I honestly could not get enough of this coat and in the meantime I actually placed an order for another similar coat here (but in camel colour this time!) I can't wait to receive it!

It was so ridiculously cold that day (Aussies will know what I mean when I say we're going through an arctic vortex!) and being by the water made things even icier. I should've put a smile on my face in the photos but it was that unbearably cold that day...next time I'll look happier I promise! :)

Turtleneck Game





Long sleeve turtleneck top: Kookai
Lace up heels: c/o Shop Calico
Biker faux leather pants: Bardot
Ok someone needs to stop me from buying any more turtlenecks...my wardrobe is getting completely dominated by pretty high necklines in different colours fitting snugly around the tops of all my hangers. As someone who embraces functionality and is always a fan of killing two birds with one stone, I love the fact you can throw a turtleneck knit on during winter and not have to bother with a scarf! :)
As you may or may not already know from my blog I'm a little bit obsessed with Kookai, and they did a 50% off sale recently which came way too late for me because all the things I wanted to get I had already bought at full price haha. I did however pick up this luscious red top for only $30 (reduced from $100 originally). 

I also watched the 'Minions' movie on the weekend with my sister! Usually the case is she picks a movie I'm completely not interested in/unaware of and I'm always being forced to watch it as her dutiful movie companion. Luckily 'Minions' seemed to be right up my alley and I can understand the craze over these adorable yellow pill-shaped things- I need to book an appointment with my sis to see Despicable Me now! :)

Leather and Suede

Leather vest: c/o Ash Lapin (here)
Sweater with leatherette cuffs: local boutique store
Banana muffin suede skirt: c/o Stelly (here)
Boots: Verali

All hail the return of the suede skirt! There's a major 70s revival out on the streets these days which people are either loving or hating, but this black A-line button skirt from Stelly should serve to be a versatile wardrobe staple offering plenty of wear. I personally can't get over the scalloped hem on this skirt- it's so cute and feminine! This is my own modest take on the 70's comeback, but I do have an exciting collaboration with ASOS coming up where my project is to channel a certain 70s fashion icon! :)

This is a random note but what I seriously love about Stelly is all the different yummy names they give all their items! For example this skirt is called 'Banana Muffin' and I have another knit from Stelly which I'll be posting soon called 'Strawberry Topping'- how delicious! :) Stelly is an Aussie based online boutique that ships worldwide. I didn't know this originally but they actually have physical stores for us lucky Sydney-siders! Stelly currently set up shop in Chatswood, Erina Fair, Top Ryde and Hornsby.

I got this faux leather vest a long time ago from a blogger's online store called Ash Lapin. It must've been all the way back in 2013 and it was a pleasant surprise that I could still track it and find it still in stock! It's only available in Large though, but with vests like these I don't think there would be a huge discrepancy in sizing.

I also got this infinity scarf from my latest box at Her Fashion Box! I love layering up during the colder seasons and the red is perfect for adding a pop of colour to anything.
