frost

 Emerson sweater, Asos skirt, Miss Shop boots, gifted boater hat, necklace c/o Oasap

Well, it's officially Winter here in Australia and it still hasn't quite sunk in. How on earth are we already half way through the year?! It hasn't been too cold over the last few days, but it's still perfect sweater weather. My weekend was quite relaxing; my friend Ruby and I had a sleepover, ate pizza and fought off an early-morning grasshopper that interrupted our lavish breakfast. The gardener trimmed the hedges so now the silly old things have been pouncing on us unexpectedly! I nearly ate one on Saturday morning! It dived into my breakfast as if it were its own!
Sunday was very lazy. After Ruby headed home I watched Little Women, had rooibos tea and macadamia cookies and tried to read the novel we are studying for English. If you are having trouble sleeping, I highly recommend reading The Secret River by Kate Grenville... I was snoring by 8 o'clock. 
I hope you had an excellent Monday! Mine was great apart from being on the verge of a colossal sneeze all day (which finally erupted during period six!). xo

you look lovely in these photos maria! I definitely agree with you about winter, I wish it would get decently cool enough to wear just a jumper and jeans without getting too hot. we had to start wearing the winter uniform, of tights and blazers, at school now it's 'offically' the cold seaso; too bad most of the students were sweating in the heat! x

sometimes i wish UK winter was like Australian winter! i'd love to still be able to wear cute skirts with a jumper but with temperatures that can reach to -11 degrees C, it's just not going to work. however, i do mostly enjoy wrapping up in big cosy coats and putting on my Docs to march through the snow with so i guess it is alright afterall! anyway, i love this outfit! the flirty skirt and block coloured jumper is an unlikely pairing but it works so well together in this. i also love the necklace!

I'm so jealous of your Aussie winters, Belgium weather sucks! It supposed to be spring/summer here and i'm wearing the same thing like you!
