Handmade Wardrobe / Inspiration


It’s funny – I know Australia is known for warm weather, and sun and surf and all that… but honestly, my favourite season in Perth is winter.

It’s so fabulously mild – and I love that i can actually wear blazers, and nice jackets and layers and not have to top it with a puffer coat. I do like summer – but it’s hard going here. I end up wearing the bare minimum because it’s so insufferably hot – but winter? That’s the place where fashion lives…

So even though i’ve technically had two winters this year… i’m actually kind of wishing this one won’t end

That dress is adorable!
I can’t stand summer, this year it’s particularly hot and I can’t wait for autumn to come to wear some cute outfits…

I know what you mean about winter! I just spent July in Perth, mostly in or near the hills/Swan Valley (surprised I didn’t see you out and about) and the weather was so divine. Compared to, you know, winter in Ohio or Iowa ;) Glad you are settling in well.
