It’s officially the last day of winter. I hope wherever you live today that you get a taste of spring in coming weeks.
In Queensland, we’ve had a mild couple of weeks with a few cooler nights. It’s been a strange winter and I can count on two hands how many times I’ve had the heating on.
I’m not skiting. I’ve missed the cold snaps, the few times a year when we get a brief opportunity to layer on up.
I’m not going to lie, either.
I LOVE early spring. I love that the nights are still mild and doona-worthy. And I love that the days aren’t stiflingly humid.
To round out our winter #everydaystyle style challenges, I’ve got inspiration for you from so many women sharing 890+ posts on the #sywintercolour hashtag. These women have shared how they wear colour in winter – in a season that traditionally is all about black and grey.
Talk about inspirational.
I’m definitely one who loves their neutrals, although I have thrown in a little blue and navy for good measure.
