winter is coming.

After all the ominous fog covered mornings this week, there's no doubt that winter is truly on its way. It was only few days ago I pulled out my two winter staples: my black wool coat from Japan and my beloved Acne boots. This year my stint with winter is short livedbut by the time I realised that I had already purchased three lightweight knits, black skinnies and ankle boots. I'll be heading to Beijing in July for an intensive language learning course, where the temperature is supposedly a scorching 30 degrees.

In spite of this speedier-than-usual seasonal transition winter is coming nonetheless (so they've been saying for the last three seasons). I was stoked when ASOS asked me to take part in their State of Fashion campaign and represent NSW alongside some of my favourite bloggers. I've always thought of Sydney winter dressing as an absolute pain especially having to trek to the city for uni or to intern, it's freezing in the morning, warms up during the day and then returns to chilly in the evening. And sadly a coat just isn't the most practical thing when you've got your laptop and 1kg Chinese textbook to lug around. It's all about layers. And while layering isn't exactly my forte (I attempted a v neck sweater over a button up shirt this morning and I looked like a check out chick in uniform), I can always turned to my one and only Veda jacket to right my styling wrongs. And of course no outfit is ever complete (for me anyway) without a (matching) khaki fedora.

ASOS want to see your winter wardrobe and are giving one lucky superstyler a $1000 ASOS voucher. Submit your look to be in the running and rally votes. You've already got mine (seriously link your entry and I'll vote for you!).

  1. I'm obsessed with this jacket of yours, and the hat goes so well with it! Wish I was a hat person!

  2. A perfect winter outfit xx

  3. I have to agree with you on the practicality thing, coats and backpacks just weren't made for one another... I really love that jacket on you though, I'm a tad obsessed with the contrasting sleeves!
