THE ART OF LAYERING FOR WINTER


THE BOOK CLUB: IMPRESSVE - KIRSTIE CLEMENTS



When Kirstie Clements came to Adelaide to launch her new book Impressive: How to have a stylish career I was lucky enough to meet her, thanks to Westfield Marion. I'll admit it, I had a bit of a fan girl moment, I literally couldn't think of anything to say, lucky for me Kirstie is an absolute pro and broke the ice, but I still walked away feeling like a blubbering fool.

I feel so fortunate to have had the chance to meet Kirstie and hear her speak that I thought I would bring you a few snippets and words of wisdom from the night.

FREEZING: HOW AUSSIES DO WINTER



When people think of Australia they think of sun-drenched days at the beach on a hot summer's day, but for me, I love the beach in winter. Theres nothing quite like rugging up against the crisp coastal wind while watching the sunset, absolute bliss. 

TRENDS I LOVE THAT DON'T LOVE ME BACK: THE DEEP V



Nothing says "I just threw this on and now I look amazing" like the effortless, cool allure of the deep V. The ultimate cool girl factor of the deep V has been accentuated by Kym Ellery's designs for recent Ellery collections - and it just plain sucks that this is one of those trends that I love that just does not love me back.

PARADISE COVE



Mandy Shadforth from Oracle Fox has done it again, creating beautiful images with dreamy summer vibes. 

TAILORED



If you're a frequent reader of Caity Says you'll know that finding myself a new winter coat was something of a challenge, I was stumped as to whether to buy a grey coat or a camel coat (yes I took this very seriously) but finally I decided on this delicious camel 'Tailored Coat' from Country Road.

BEAUTY SLEEP



Its rare these days that you sit back and allow yourself some pampering time, and the concept of beauty sleep is (in my life) these days nonexistent. I've always had the best of intentions when it comes to my at-home beauty routine, but most of the time it falls by the wayside with me deciding to just go to bed instead. Enter the Mermaid Meg Sleep MaskMilk by Glamourflage where your instructions are literally: lie back, take a rest and let Meg do all the work for you.. works for me!
