Everyday // Clean Shirts and Jeans

With the heatwaves well and truly behind us, we can start getting excited about knitwear and all kinds of innovative layering! Before you rush into your coats … let’s go for the basics first – a white button up, jeans, pumps and a long scarf. Mornings are always a little bit chillier now but by midday, the sun is out and if you know Australian sun, you known its hot regardless of season! Far too hot for a knit sweater that’s for sure. Instead, introduce a knit scarf into the rotation which I like to double as a wrap when I’m at work and the air conditioning is up high.

I often like to over-style my outfits for my blog posts because I think it makes for more interesting pictures and a better starting point for a conversation but this is something I wear much more on the regular – whatever shirt is clean (and hopefully not wrinkled) and a pair of jeans. If I wanted to blog-style it up I would probably add a belt or vest or even potentially one of those trendy lace up corset type things. What’s your favourite transition piece in the colder months?
