Winter Faves 2013

Kate in taupe camel coat & grey suede tote

It has been an unfeasibly long Summer in the Southern hemisphere this year. At the risk of sounding like a curmudgeon  I'm with the farmers - bring on the Winter! It's not so much the rain I like but brisk, cold days. Despite being part Polynesian, I veritably wilt in the heat & humidity, all the while trying to tame a excruciatingly frizzy barnet and blot the foundation havoc-wreaking sweat from my brow. I loved living in Sydney for 7 years, but the mugginess was relentless. I grew up in most Southern New Zealand with frosty mornings, long dusks and weekends in local snowy Queenstown. Give me a crackling open fire and a faux fur over sitting positioned between two fans trying to cool down!

What I love most about Winter is Winter fashion! This Winter I am obsessed with a grey palette and taupes. I'm also loving neutrals, from vanilla to mushroom and tea hues. Due to the conversely long Winter in the Northern hemisphere, I'm still enjoying watching celebs dress in Winter fashion in Europe, especially Kate, and Victoria Beckham & mini-me Harper. Here are some of my favourite celebs' Winter fashion looks.
Harper in faux fur bomber jacket & 
VB in grey plaid coat from her Fall 2013 collection

& knee high boots
 VB in skinny black jeans & coat and leopard stilettos
Camel shirt
VB military chic in her own collection
Kate in French vanilla shades

New Mum Elsa Pataky - my new style icon!
I love these beaten up mid-calf boots and black & grey palette.
Elsa in neutrals with leopard print scarf & baby bag
Sienna Miller in shaggy grey coat

Kate in Balmain leather pants, blazer, leather jacket and faux fur
Black opaque stockings - a Winter must-have.
(I wouldn't mind the leopard print coat either!)

Here are a few gems, must-haves (and 'wish I hads') that I am looking forward to this Winter. 
Workshop Breton Tee Shirt dress - Cotton Bamboo Cashmere - 
55% Cotton 40% Bamboo 5% Cashmere

I'll continue to slather BB Cream on throughout Winter.
