Winter Hues

In true Melbourne style, today's weather comprised of rain one minute, sunshine and blue skies the next and a cold chilly wind to close out the night.  As someone who has lived here my entire life, I know the number one rule for surviving Melbourne's "four-seasons-in-a-day" is this:

always wear layers!

  Thankfully we are still in the middle of Autumn so it was fairly mild today...just the right temperature to try out the new fringed vest I purchased from H&M last week.  

This is one of my favourite pieces from H&M's Australian Exclusive Collection; I just had to have it!  The deep burgundy colour is so flattering and a great alternative to black in the cooler months. It works so well with the all-over fringe detail too, making a statement without being over the top.  I've teamed it here with a simple black dress and boots but I think it would also look great over jeans and a tee, with heels or a simple maxi.
