Wearing: The Winter Edit
Bring out the Winter duvets, woolly socks, electric blankets and hot water bottles we're heading straight for the cold months of the year. And while you'll be toasty in bed wearing your matching flannel pj set, it's time to get your style sorted to brave the outdoors when you hit the wet and cold streets of Auckland or wherever you live.
For this mini Winter Edit, I've styled three looks centred around two of my favourite new outerwear pieces for this Winter season. Firstly the Oak NYC coat that I purchased while 37,000ft in the air on my way from Washington DC, to Mexico over the Thanksgiving holiday (which meant great sales online of course). Had to get this heavy wool coat shipped from a US address via NZ Post's shipping forwarding service YouShop, definitely worth checking it out if you can't get it shipped here direct from the seller.
The second piece is this awesome brown sherpa denim jacket I picked up from one of my usual spots the Service Denim Store which I have been living in since the weather just suddenly took a turn like Mr Weather man simply flicked the switch on to start Winter. Let's get you prepared for Winter with a little inspiration.
Stay warm and enjoy.

A good solid wool coat or jacket should be like a nice fairly expensive looking couch. They look fantastic, they're used a lot, they cost you a bit more but you get that quality you're after. Essentially they're your statement piece, a feature of the entire outfit, so that extra investment will be worth it and you'll have it for seasons to come. And if you're clever, shop the polar seasons to get yourself a deal. So when it's going into Summer in the states, it's the right time to look at what's being put on sale or clearance from their Winter range, and guess what, it's bang on trend and on season here cause we're a little behind in the Southern Hemisphere. There you go, a free tidbit of advice.
Get out there, stick the finger to the weather and make sure you look damn good while doing it.
