I’m excited about serious winter dressing. It’s really about finding quality staples – like my beautiful Merinillo wool coat or leather overalls. I’ve been travelling so much the past 18 months and for most of that time I’ve been enjoying summer temperatures – but when the cold sets in your need larger pieces and you can’t travel with so much in your luggage. Suddenly its all about a couple quality coats, some leather pants (overalls!) and some killer warm boots – and then adding gloves and hats and scarves and knits to mix and match the looks. My coat is just such a brilliant investment because it’s reversible – you can create such a different look depending on the way your wear it. The palate of winter clothing is also super integral because you can’t have a wardrobe full of colour, if you pile on too many vibrant accessories you risk ending up looking like a christmas tree!

I don’t think I’ve really had the chance to share with you how great both my overalls and coat are in these pics so expect more posts with these puppies!! Publishing this post from Amsterdam – here working on a project with Rebecca which I look forward to sharing. Love shooting my gorgeous friends – which leads me to tomorrow’s post, some pics of one of my favourite Swedish bloggers, Sania Claus Demina. Coming up!
