Beanies and Gloves

Sandler bootsI am thankful that we don't have harsh winter down under but sometimes I also want to wrap myself up in some knitwear. I can actually get to do this in the early mornings and at night time but skip it during midday unless I want to toast myself. But for coordinated dressing up I am willing to compromise especially when I have beanies and gloves that completely rock the teddy look.

Terranova sweater

I wasn't really feeling so toasty in this outfit because of the short skirt. I prefer wearing mini skirts when I put on a knee-high boots just because it's more girly and fun.
 What to wear with jumper
Nine West bag
Terranova beanie
 Sportsgirl skirt
Would you believe I got these cute jumpers, beanies and gloves on my last holiday in Manila where it feels like summer all year round? I think the shop caters more for shoppers who live abroad or those who are preparing for their overseas trip. It works well enough for me and to think I got them at a low price so there's nothing to complain about.

Brown Jumper
 Terranova gloves
I told my photographer a.k.a. husband to shoot photos where it's lush and green so it looks like I'm really cold :) This was shot in my neighbourhood where there's no problem with shades and trees. And we kind of pull it off :)
Nine West
 What to wear in winter
This flower tree blossoms towards the end of winter and provides a good backdrop for photo op though it looks more summery than wintry. But magnolia flowers look like cherry blossoms from the distance so it's all good. All that is missing is a paper umbrella :)

Zara skirt
Teddy bear jumper

  4. That grey teddy sweater is too cute, Mercy. And the beanies and gloves look like owls? You look darling in this outfit. Oh, I can't wait for Fall clothes. They are so fun to wear. What a pretty place this is to take pictures.

    It's winter there, and we're getting ready for Fall here.

  21. So adorable looks Mercy! I hope it was not too hot when you photographed them, otherwise you are very courageous :))
    I wish it was cold in Greece too! Last year Christmas was like 18 Celsius, as it was in Easter. The only chance we have wearing heavy coats and sweaters is to travel! I am dying to dress like you on these photos! Thank you for the winter inspo and have a great weekend my dear!
    PS: Love your style!!
