Spring has arrived in all her

brilliant glory here in the

Southern Hemisphere.

As much as I am looking

forward to Spring/Summer

dressing I will miss my

winter wardrobe .

I have always loved

the somewhat dressier

clothing of winter.

Time for a recap of

some of my favourites

from this winter.

This red coat dress worn 

over black pants , topped

with a black hat and

leopard print wrap

is always a pleasure

to wear to add a

bright note on many

a dull winter day.

I grew to love purple 

again after discovering

this jacket, worn here 

with a long black skirt

with a ruffled under

skirt and a purple hat.

These wide leg cropped

pants from many

winters ago have

again served me well.

Seen here with a

taupe wrap jacket

and turban.

I have owned this 

cream and black

skirt for many a winter,

it has made a most welcome

return to the front of my closet.

Worn at the beach with a 

jewelled black hat and

taupe wool jacket.

I have enjoyed rediscovering

skirts this Winter after

many years of mainly

pants.

I plan to continue

this new found love

of skirts into Summer.

Taking my Winter Recap

over to Share-in-Style

where the topic is pants/skirts.

    I can see why you love winter dressing… although what you call winter seems like the perfect autumn for me (it's only winter if it's below freezing and there's plenty of snow…). The dressier outfits are so much fun to put together, and who could resist a nice coat? BTW the wrap coat is amazing…

      Tiina, I think our mild winters are probably your autumn, sometimes sub zero overnight but never any snow.Look forward to your winter outfits, when that time comes.Thank you for visiting, have a good week.

    Jill, each and every outfit is so elegant! I have always yearned for a red coat, but have been afraid the color might be too bright for me; however, you have changed my mind. You look so stunning and so comfortable in it. I'm going to search for a red coat this winter, by george!

    You are a genius fall/winter season dresser! I want to learn from you! Love all the jackets here, and the skirt is gorgeous in the last outfit, and you always top it off with an interesting looking hat! Lovely, elegant, timeless, a bit quirky – and so very your own style! xxx

      Natalia, you are so kind and generous . I have always found winter dressing so much easier for me, I guess I am a more formal dresser, summer is always more casual, something I`m not so comfortable with.I enjoy your style and am looking forward to seeing you in winter.

    It's fun watching your weather change in the opposite direction from us in the US. That flower photo is exhilarating!On the style re-cap it is very prevalent your taste for very nice classic things. Well made and with luscious fabrics.

      Thank you Joni, I have enjoyed watching everyone enjoy summer, even on a cool day, knowing the reverse will happen .The hyacinths are a wonderful spring flower, always spectacular.
