Hot coffee and cold breezes...

Wednesday, June 08, 2011

Do ever get days when you stand in front of your wardrobe drawing a total blank of what to wear and other days its like an epiphany when you throw a combintaion of things on and it really works!

This outfit was one of those epiphany times...Ive never thought of throwing this crop jumper over this dress, so simple and yet it looks so great. It shows the peter pan collar off and adds warmth to give a different look than the typical cardigan.

  10. Dude, I literally talk about the weather all the time. Where other may find it small talk, I revel in it. You can't beat a gorgeous sunny day and I love the drama of a decent thunderstorm or downpour. Cracking.

    Lovely outfit there - I agree!
