The days have been ridiculously dreary and cold and it's basically like we've been moving through this endless rainy cloud. Okay, I'm exaggerating a bit. I did see the sun for about three minutes today! Melbourne's weather is amazing. I find the best thing to do on a really grey day is to be as bright as possible. This was super easy to do with my new wool coat!
I am excited because this is the first nice coat I have, really. I have one other that I bought for about 15 dollars which is made out of...well, I have no idea, but it's certainly not as nice as this one. My other coat is hot pink (seeing a trend?) but er, was purchased about 10 years ago and barely fits now. I love the huge collar, the swinginess, and of course, the bright red colour! It's a real pick-me-up on a otherwise dull day. What's your solution to the winter blues?
Whenever it's summer, I end up wearing warm knits and whenever it's winter, I want to wear florals and swingy short skirts...yes, I'm just that much of a rebel! I think it's less of my natural hardcoreness and more just because I get bored so easily (just ask Ramalon, he's forced to sit with me while I skip through youtube videos after 20 seconds because I've lost interest...) and can't stand to do the same thing over and over!
It hasn't been too bad lately, but it was definitely very cold for my trip! I challenged my friend to a "who can stand stand in the freezing cold ocean for the longest" competition and I'm pretty sure I dominated. YES! Every victory is a victory, no?
At this moment in time, I'll be lounging on a beach (???) only not really, because it's going to be freezing! Somehow, I think that we are not the best at arranging holidays, but it'll be fun anyway. Reading, relaxing in front of the fire, playing video games (MARIO)...not quite a magical summer holiday, but sounds pretty good to me!
I've been liking super loose and comfortable things lately, the easier, the better! This dress is really flowy but it's a little bit too cold to wear it by itself. Unfortunately, it wrinkles really easily! Anyone have tips for stopping clothes from wrinkling?

I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted! With big assignments, exams and...lots of lazing around after exam time I sort of just let it slip by. It's been so cold and busy lately that the days have been a blur of trying to stay in bed for as long as possible, curling up with warm drinks and thick cardigans, and trying to spend as little time without socks on as possible! Luckily, it's been a little better this week...and I found my camera, buried under some random things in my room. Oops!
Long skirts are the best because you can wear whatever you want underneath them - leggings? Pajama pants? Thick socks? No worries!

I had these ready to go ages ago but have just been buried under lots of work! Okay, I'm exaggerating...it's probably more like feel too guilty that I'm not studying and do random things to escape that feeling...like thinking about cleaning my room (that's how desperate I am...), eating food and taking naps....and occasionally studying, as well as working most nights! Anyway, I'm the type that will do almost anything but actually study hard to get good marks...hence this outfit, where I thought that maybe if I dressed like I imagined a scholarly-type genius would, I might get somewhere. Not sure if it's really working since I just typed would as "wood"...gosh I'm tired!

Classes are over and I'm now in the all important exam preparation time...except I just started working part-time and actually still have an assignment left...hmm! Unfortunately, all this stress has somehow made me slack off and I've just been fluffing around all day. Oops! This outfit is kind of evidence of this - don't tell anyone, but I was actually wearing pajama pants under this skirt. YES. I discovered that if you wear a maxi skirt, you can comfortably and easily conceal anything from thick leggings to trackies underneath! So...now I know what I'm going to be living in for the rest of the winter. What's your secret to keeping warm and comfortable?
