The Sunday Notes #6: Winter Wardrobe Essentials

We're just over a week away from winter down here in Australia and the weather is finally starting to show it. I've pulled out the 'winter' boxes in my wardrobe and have had a few shopping trips to refill the basics. Change of season brings around a whole heap of new trends but there are some wardrobe pieces that I see as complete staples and here to stay. Today I'm sharing a compilation of my winter wardrobe essentials.

Skinny Black Jeans: These will go with just about any look and form the basis of my day to day wardrobe in the winter, it's best to have a few pairs. These ones are from Valleygirl and are super stretchy and comfy, I probably should have gone for a size 8 as these 10's are a tad too roomy. Jeans shopping is one of the only types of shopping I don't enjoy so when I find a style and size that fits me well, I buy a few pairs.

Warm Black Tights: If I'm not wearing jeans, I'll be wearing tights. A warm, comfy pair of tights is absolutely essential for me. If you're in the UK, Primark do an amazing 'super cosy' tights which really is super cosy. I picked up a pair when I was last over and although they look a little worse for wear now, I wouldn't hesitate to pick up another. Here in Aus I've found Kmart do some pretty decent ones and the press tag is reasonable.

Knitwear: I love a bit of knitwear. Whether you dress it up with shirt collars peeping through or sport it for simple warmth and comfort on a lounge day, they're perfect. I have a whole range of knitted jumpers in my wardrobe but this one is definitely a favourite. From Dotti last year, I love the bow detailing at the back. The quality is really lovely and I picked it up in the sale, what's not to like?

Ankle Boots: These are my daily shoe of choice in the cooler months. The little heel adds something a little chic to any outfit but they still remain surprisingly comfy. This pair are from Kmart (bargain alert) but you can pick this style of shoe up just about anywhere.

Accessories: In the winter I love to incorporate a few more accessories in to my line up. They're great to dress up a simple jeans and t-shirt type outfit. The watch pictured is from Miss Shop and I absolutely love it. Once again something I picked up in a sale. I've got my eye on a Michael Kors watch but for now, this will have to do.

Winter Perfume: By no means is it essential to change your perfume from season to season, if you've got a scent you love then gurl you rock it all year round, but it also can be quite fun to have a change up. In the winter I opt for more woody, earthy scents as opposed to the fruitier ones I enjoy in the summer months. Recently I've been absolutely loving Diptyque's Philosykos, it's such a mature scent and never fails to make me feel classy (sad I know).
