Hi Jen :)
It is super, super hot here in Australia though today was pretty nice. Last week we had a heat wave where it was well over 40*C every day. Last year it went on for 15 days AAAGH!
Anyway, so thinking about wearing coats nearly kills me.. but I have a pretty white trench which I looove :) I think trench coats are so beautiful, you don’t really need to accessorise them to death. Beanies & scarves can look real cute though!

My sister lives in Chicago—she’s always complaining about the cold. I sympathize :)
I’m from Seattle…and it’s POURING. It has been for the last week.
My favorite coat for bearing the cold is without a doubt a wool trench. So classic and simple! To make it less boring…definitely a scarf. Big colorful mittens and beanies are great. I put pins on the lapels of mine, but they look a little bit kitchy. S’okay, though, because if you’re wearing a hot pink mini dress, nobody thinks you’re kitchy!!posted almost 7 years ago
Wow, I certainly wish I was in Australia right now!
Yeah, a scarf is simple and yet you can wear it so many different ways.posted almost 7 years ago
I am from NZ and we are ment to be having our summer and its horrible. Worst summer ever they are saying. And then there australia
I’m new, is it OK to just comment on these things when you dont know anyone?
Hi there! I’m new too 8) and I’m from Canada – I’m on the east coast where it’s COLD but I"m actually from central Canada where it’s even COLDER!! I’m talking -35 or 40 degrees celcius. No idea what that is in farenheit but it’s damn cold.
Anyway, Classic & simple wool coat: necessity, Sweaters for layering and warmth: necessity, Wide elastic or leather belt for style: REALLY good idea, and of course – a great scarf with a punch of color. I recommend color because if you get stuck in a snowbank – you can use it as a flag… lol

hi there! i’m pretty new too, i’m from upstate NY and it is COLD here too!!!
i loooove my classic black wool peacoat, it goes with everything and can be dressed up or down. i like to alternate it though with a bright green down jacket on really bad days – down jackets are the best for that! i love a huge scarf too, i can use it as a wrap if i get too cold in class haha. plus, it’s fun to buy different color and pattern scarves and use that to dress up my black coat! :)
i recently also found an awesome white, knee length coat at goodwill that i purchased for $11, and got dry cleaned for $10…it’s as good as new now! :)posted almost 7 years ago
