H&M beanie, T by Bettina Liano jacket, Monki skirt, Siren boots, Covergirl 'Midnight Magic' polish

To be honest, I've always had a love-hate relationship with winter. On the one hand I like drowning myself in cosy layers, having an excuse to turn up the heater and drinking tea constantly. On the flip side, it's a bit hard to love the season when you wake up to fog outside your window and icy cold feet (although I should hardly be complaining, coming from a place where 20 degrees celsius is considered chilly)... Anyway, on the positive side of things can we talk about this pleather jacket for a second? To cut a long story short I've always wanted one, but none of the contenders I came across were just right. Thankfully my pickiness paid off though, because I finally snapped up this one on sale over the long weekend! Even though there are so many other types that have studded lapels and embellishments, I've never felt badass enough to pull off anything other than the simple option. This probably won't help the fact that I'm seemingly incapable of wearing colour, but hey! At least I know I'll definitely get some wear out of it.

On a random note, I ate at Sydney Madang after a small shopping trip with my mum recently! We had an assorted seafood hotpot and seafood pancake, which was nothing less than what I expected it would be. Be warned though, unless you have stomachs of steel all that food between two people is probably not advisable, especially with the complimentary side dishes... It's kind of a shame, especially since I always seem to crave Korean food but can never try every dish when I eat out! I guess that just means I have an excuse to visit again in the near future.

P.S. To be perfectly honest, I'm not sure what's going down with this business about Google Reader being ruled out and what that means for GFC followers... nevertheless, if you still want updates you can follow me here on Bloglovin! See you soon.

  1. Leather jackets are the boss (that just sounds weird), I wear mine pretty much every time I go out (though it's mostly because it's my only winter jacket...)

    The food looks really good and warm. *Q*

  2. You look really nice Mani!
    Cute in leather c:
    I love seafood hotpot! Xx

  3. Your jacket is perfect! I think with jackets simple is the way to go, so you can wear it for longer without it going out of trend/deciding you hate it.

    We Sydneysiders love complaining about the weather, haha. Last week I saw a lot of bloggers mention how warm it was in London, so I googled their weather and it was the same as ours!

  4. Great photos! I'm surrounded by Korean food everyday but you make it look 10x more delicious! Love the outfit :)

  5. I have a similar biker jacket and love the nailpolish!!

  6. lovely blog :) im with you on the wearing color thing...but im starting to add it back in!

  7. Gorgeous outfit! And finally somebody who feels my pain haha I hate winter because of how cold it is. I don't think I like anything about it actually but yes anything below 20 degrees is absolutely freezing in my terms :(

  8. it always pays off to hold out on buying something you really want until you find the perfect one, i find that it always comes to you eventually. and i definitely have a hate/hate relationship with winter, i can't wait til it's over!

  27. Your outfit is so lovely, perfect winter attire, although the winter here warrants many more layers and knitted accessories. How amazing does your meal look as well? I think it's time to pop a Korean meal out in my diary... xx
