Today is the last day of autumn :(
So I thought I'd mark it by wearing my favourite autumn made garment; my trench coat. I've got it on over a Tshirt and skirt here, but I like how trenches can actually pass for dresses on a warm day, which it is today, sort of. I was quite toasty here in this photo and wishing I could take something off... well, I always feel warm during our dog walk in the morning and only start to slowly freeze when I get into the office. Australian weather being like it is we don't have central heating here like northern hemisphere dwellers have. I've got the little gas heater warming up my toes right now...!
I left off the belt I made for the coat and instead donned an old black leather belt I've had since teenage years; and I like how the accents of black set off the sandy beigeness of the coat. The black buttons, black legs, black booties, black belt... the colour of winter is creeping insidiously into my wardrobe and before you know it Perth will be clad all in black and grey, yeah it's hard to believe on a bright sunny day like today! but it will happen! One thing is for sure, I will be wearing this coat all through winter too, it's so comfy and feels so nice to throw it on; instant outfit! I'm so glad I've got it!
