It's blazing cold!

A must-have in any fashionistas closet would have to be the blazer. I have two favourites-a linen/cotton blazer for Spring/Summer, by Max & Co, and this new edition in silk blend by Carolina Herrera, New York, from Paris '99.

My favourite way to wear blazers is with jeans, although they can also be worn with longer length skirts as well. Due to the cold weather Melbourne has been experiencing lately, layering is the only option. I chose to layer a cashmere/woollen sweater by Ralph Lauren. It's short sleeved, but very warm. In fact, paired with this blazer, it's the perfect combination for a Winter's day. The blazer may not be made from wool, but it sure is cosy! I was quite surprised.




I love the look of navy on navy, broken up with black. There's something very French chic about this colour combo. I think I need to wear more of it!







I chose to accessorise this outfit with my beautiful Louis Vuitton Alma handbag in monogram design. I had it monogrammed in gold with my initals, which I absolutely adore! The Alma is such a classic and was made especially for Coco Chanel as she needed a small travel handbag, hence the brass lock and key you can see in the photographs below. If you only ever buy one Louis Vuitton handbag, I urge you to consider this one only. The Speedy fails to live up to the elegance and beauty of the Alma in comparison, but seems to have been taken the world by storm, as it is a cheaper alternative.






I'm very careful when spending a lot of money on shoes. I always stick to classic styles and colours. That way, I don't waste my money on trends that fade as quickly as they come in and these shoes are no exception. These Bally black pumps are my go-to heels for style, as well as comfort. I highly recommend them. This style is available every season. I would love another pair in patent leather. 
 





It's been so lovely seeing some sunshine today! I've been able to stock up on some much needed vitamin D. Hope you're all loving your weekend so far. 

Yours in style,
