It's gonna be winter there so I'm preparing winter clothings for the occasion.
The thing is I don't really know what type of clothes they do wear in Australia. And though I've searched the net and asked some friends, I'm still not satisfied.
But what I do know is that they're pretty casual down under and that the weather there isn't really very cold. I've read up on the net that winter there is like spring in London. If spring in London is like Autumn in NY, then I really shouldn't dress very heavily.
These are some inspirations, although I doubt very much that I'll be able to dress like them... ;)

Now these are looks that I know I can't pull off... (Not like I can pull off the previous three though LOL.)
But I'd love to fantasize... :P

The first three are actually from their old blog, and you should actually hear me squeak "Eep!" when I found the pics posted on the front page. :)

Of all the coincidence, I just read on Garance Doré:
Girls in Australia, they take on autumn with a philosophy. It never really does get cold anyway. In the boutiques, sweaters mix it up with swimsuits and sandals. They pick out a few warmer pieces from a winter wardrobe but wear them with bare legs and caramel skin.
It’s like it’s make-believe winter, just for fun or something.
I love this interseasonal mix but it totally drives me crazy: I’m so jealous! And here I am, thinking I would come back and find springtime!
Pfff…. Take me back to my Australian autumn!
