Burgundy is the new black

Transitional Dressing

When there's a shift in weather and the shops start displaying transitional items for the new season, I'm like a moth to a flame and find myself transfixed, walking towards the shiny and new with very little will- power involved.

In Australia we are coming into Autumn/Winter 2013 which means lots of exciting new shapes and colours and ohhhhhh burgundy how I love you!  Teal you are my 'BFF' and olive green you are my new romance, throw in a pair of tan suede ankle boots and I am rubbing my hands together in glee, skipping like a schoolgirl!

GUCCI (fake I assume as it was from an op-shop), tan/black chevron scarf TEMT, nude flats, not seen JO MERCER, man's watch – gift, bobble rings WALLIS

Last night I went to a surprise birthday dinner with friends and one of them wore a version of the above outfit.  Having played it safe in navy fitted slightly flared pants and a navy light sweater with vintage jewellery I felt I’d been a bit less than brave, so here’s to dressing just as provocatively on a tuesday night as the weekend!
