Marco Polo cardigan, thrifted American Apparel t-shirt and skirt, Windsor Smith boots

So this post isn't so much because I thought my outfit was anything special, but because I really liked how my pictures turned out for once! With greenery emerging left, right and centre it made the perfect backdrop, but don't be fooled. Even though spring has technically arrived in Australia it's still freezing in the mornings, so I don't think I'll be brave enough to don bare legs anytime soon...

Anyway, this outfit's a pretty standard one that I wore to uni and the shops. The skirt is actually one of my favourites right now – after working my DIY magic I transformed it from a midi to a mini, and to say I've worn it to death would be an understatement! Not only does it have the perfect A-line shape, but it also comes with pockets. Ones that can actually hold stuff. I always subconsciously have my hands in my pockets for some reason, so that's pretty much the best thing I could ask for in a skirt. Or any item of clothing, for that matter.

  3. i LOVE when skirts and dresses have pockets, i rarely put stuff in them but i always have my hands in them when i'm standing around waiting for the train or at a gig or something and i don't know what else to do with them.

    1. I can totally relate! Even when I wear a cardigan without pockets, not having anywhere to put my hands feels kinda wrong...

  6. Love the outfit! I like the matching gold buttons on the skirt and the coat :) I need more skirts with pockets (or learn how to sew them in!)

    1. Thanks Jane! I'd totally sew pockets into all my clothes too, if I weren't afraid of messing them up...

  8. Would never have guessed that skirt was DIY - you have a way with the sewing machine. Cute outfit, so classic!

  12. I love your outfit! And yes, the mornings here are still pretty cold :( It's an annoying weather transition through the day. It can go from 16 to 25 degrees in a matter of hours.

  13. I love that skirt! I did the same with a very similar skirt, but I shortened it a bit too much and couldn't wear it!
