So, my shopaholic tendencies have overcome me again (what’s new?) and I have been out adding to my wardrobe. I have bought a few things to keep me warm throughout winter, without bundling myself up like a Sumo wrestler, or looking drab and boring.

Now, a woman can NEVER have too many jackets (my friends disagree but this is MY blog haha) and so I have bought myself a new jacket from the lovely EziBuy store. A zip-through biker style jacket, in a slim-line classic fit. I bought it in brown, but it is also available in black and gunmetal (and it is basically identical to the white one I bought a while back). It fits me like a dream and looks awesome with boots and jeans.

Now, this is totally ugly, I admit. But my god it’s warm! The Maya Poncho from The Warehouse, when you’re wearing it,¬†looks like your Grandma’s moth-eaten bedcover has attacked you. But it is deliciously cozy and great for nights at good friends houses when you are there for takeaways and DVD’s. And the funny thing? You feel great when you’re wearing it, despite it’s utter silliness. Go figure.

CottonOn has always been a great shop for buying your basic tee’s and singlets, but has recently been upping its game with good quality knitted items and quirky jackets. This is where I found a rather funky, chuck over your simple jeans and t-shirt type jacket. I chose a startling, fire-engine red, but it is also available in black, white and grey. And yes yes, I know. ANOTHER jacket. So sue me!

And last, but certainly not least, BEANIES! Luckily for me, one of the lovely girls I work with has a Mother that is a champion knitter! For NZD$10 per beanie, I (and most of the girls I work with!) have commissioned this poor lady to make copious amounts of the damn things. So far, I have paid for four to be made (black, red, blue and hot pink) and they are wonderful! First thing in the morning, when I step outside, I am nowhere near as cold as I normally am – all thanks to my head being incased in a cozy little beanie! I colour coordinate my beenies with what I am wearing, and spend the day without frozen ears and windblown hair. Brilliant! Go out there people and find a place that sells beanies and buy one in every colour. It’s worth it!
