It's getting chilly in the mornings and evenings here in Brisbane. I'm one of those people who notice the weather way more than your average person. You see, I have a hate/hate (yep, you heard me) relationship with winter and hibernation is my way of life during that time. Buuuut, when I am forced out of my little cave, I do like to embrace winter fashion and put in a little bit of effort.
I've always wanted a puffer jacket but never got around to purchasing one. I thought it could be seen as an overreaction since Brisbane "doesn't even get cold" - WRONG. SOME OF US FREEZE!
I've finally jumped on the bandwagon and secured the most baddass jacket alive. I made my way to Uniqlo in the Brisbane CBD and had a browse around their HUUUGE store. I knew I wanted to grab a few things that I could add to my winter wardrobe since I always seem to just layer summer clothes and hope for the best.
I feel the cold like no other. Heck, I rug up because of shopping centre aircon! For me, I really need clothes that are going to keep me really warm. I am very tolerant of the heat and it takes a lot for me to get uncomfortable in warmer temperatures, but as soon as the first sign of cold weather comes around, I'm ruined!
So, I'm totally proud of myself for buying a piece that I know I'm going to get heaps of wear out of. Also, it's so comforting knowing I'm going to be a toasty cinnamon bun in this Ultra Light Down jacket of goodness and all things amazing. The outfit below is a super cute and easy way to still look fabulous when it's a chilly outside. I recommend adding stockings if the temperatures drop more than you expected!
