I love supporting Australian fashion retailers especially during Wool week Australia (May 13-21),which means I’m getting my wool on with pieces I selected from my local Westfield which has pieces for every budget.

You can shop this whole look from Westfield which gives you more time for snuggling in your new winter gear and enjoying those winter comforts like a steaming hot chocolate from kokoblack when you need a break in between stocking up on those must have pieces.

Now is the time to plan your winter wardrobe not out of necessity but desire…

Merino Wool

Merino Wool comes from the Merino sheep that originated from Spain introduced into Australia around the turn of the 18th century.

What makes the Merino Wool so awesome is its very fine fibers, making it the softest wool in the world.The wool is durable and you’ll be hard pressed to stretch or misshape these woolly garments.On top of that it closely mimics human hair with a keratin component making it bio degradable and good for the earth.

Planning your Winter wardrobe

Whether your enjoy online shopping www.westfield.com or heading into the center they’ll have you covered for the cool months ahead.

Since I love wearing a neutral color palette this makes it easy to mix and match with my existing wardrobe.This is a great starting point to consider.Neutrals also evoke a seasonal feeling for autumn and the coming winter.Not only that you can layer those light weight knits in spring.

Building your capsule wardrobe is a cinch with these essential versatile pieces 

The sweater dress – a cosy chic sweater dress is a must have this season you can layer this with opaque tights or sheer stockings for when is gets frosty.Ankle boots or on trend OTK boots will compliment this nicely.

The cardigan – The perfect trans Seasonal piece wear yours with the above mentioned sweater dress for bonus street style cred.Perfect for mixing and matching with your existing wardrobe just add jeans and a tee and your ready to go.

Quick Tips to Layering Merino Wool

Start with your 

Base layerof lightweight merino wool Merino will regulate your body temperature, insulating you from the cold and also wicking away moisture and heat when you sweat.

Mid layerto trap heat and keep you warm 

Outer layer-choose a waterproof outer layer for protection against the  elements.

The best thing about layering is you can add/remove according to your environment.

Final Thoughts

When it comes down to the final cut when choosing which stays and which comes home with you remember its not just the price tag that matters its the quality of the item and how well it complements the rest of your wardrobe.I love my winter wardrobe and know I made the right choice with wool this year because 75 million Sheep cant be wrong!

  1. Merino wool is one of my favorite materials for winter wardrobe. I’m really digging this whole white on white wool look on you, with a touch of metallic jewelries and black OTKs! It’s a little odd for me to look at a winter outfit right now because it’s very hot as it’s summer here. But I really love your chic styling and will be sure to check out wool pieces from Westfield when it’s winter again.

  2. Love the title of this post babe so true winter really is here had to dig through my the chest in my closet this morning for my Bvlgari gloves my hands were so cold. Which brings to the post what can I say other then you slayed in this look love everything about it especially that bag a perfect little touch of glam with this look. Well done and hope you have a fab week.


  3. Winter is coming and it never looked so good. Love the dress with the long wool coat. It looks so cozy and warm yet super stylish and chic! The accessories are so on point, all the stacked ring and that chain cross body look so perfect to glam up this look.

  4. I must say it’s so weird to read about autumn/winter fashion when we’re preparing for summer (and it’s basically here now), but that’s the beauty of internet. To connect with people all over the world and see what people are wearing in different climates. Wool week for the Australian autumn is really a lovely idea and I love that you support local brands and designers as that is something I love doing as well. To be honest I don’t know much about Australian fashion, but I will in a few weeks as Australia is the guest nation of the year for Pitti Uomo in Florence where I’m heading soon. 🙂

    I loooved this nude look! I cant believe winternis coming out there, it’s so weird 😂 These kind of outfits are my favorite because they are timeless, classic and so chic! You look amazing!

  6. Oh babe, first of all I need to say that I love the fact that you are supporting australian brands! It’s so nice seeing that and yeah, I’ll have to agree, wool is a must during winter. This wool dress you are wearing looks extremely cozy and chic! Love how you paired it with the cardigan in the same shade and those sleek black over the knee boots! Totally nailed it, and the accessories were also so on point. Wishing you a lovely day! xx


  7. I definitely love the detail on the clutch and the winter whites have me looking forward to trying something new this winter. Can’t wait! xo, Jessica

  8. Oh my god I want this whole outfit. That cardigan looks so luxe and amazing!!! And that sweater dress! I’ll be looking into them when winter hits here again. So obsessed with the materials and hue combination

  9. Wow! I love this pretty sweatr dress, the texture and quality sounds amazing. I am not a big fan of sweater dresses because they are normally made with a thick fabric and tend to be loose, but this one looks amazing on you! the cardigan is the perfect complemet to create a chic and elegant winter look. The sweater dress has become a trendy piece during the season and I think you could easily wear from day to night.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Have a nice day!


  10. What a beautiful neutral look girl! Merino wool is definitely the warmest and coziest.
    Sometimes I forget that you guys are entering Winter right now, while we are dreaming about Summer hahaha
    Also, loving your picks on essentials for winter! I always wear sweater dresses with OTK boots!
    Thanks for sharing gorgeous!

  11. I’ve always loved a good woolen clothing. I have several pieces from Ireland and they made from merino wool. Literally the best wool ever. I absolutely love your pickups, this nude off-white colour is so perfect and classy! And your jewellery pieces fit perfectly to this look. I’ll definitely take a look at some woolen statement pieces for the upcoming winter. Thank you for the recommendation.

  12. I didn’t know there’s wool week in Australia. How cool is that? I like that you are wearing all white, it’s so chic and elegant. Not only you look so stylish, but the wool will keep you warm and cozy. You have such a great style!

    xo, Maryam

  13. Winter is coming and it looks like you are ready for it! I didn’t know Wool Week even existed, but I certainly can imagine you completely killing it! Sometimes I wish I lived in a city like this where I can enjoy wearing stuff like this, but the truth is, it’s much too hot here for wool and we have a maximum of 2 weeks of actual winter, when it’s still not cold enough for wool 🙁


  14. I love this white on white outfit girl!!! Winter in Melbourne can get quite cold!!! I totally don’t miss that! but I miss wearing winter outfits!!! Hong Kong is pretty warm all year around, and I miss wearing nice winter coats and over the knee boots! This coat of yours looks so amazing! Great outfit girl!

    xx, Jessie

  15. Omg this neutral look is SIMPLY stunning. Something I would love to wear in winter season. I love wearing wool too and from the pictures the quality looks amazing. This whole look is so elegant that I want to purchase it even though we have summer season. The best look i’ve seen today!

  17. I’ve always been a fan of wool and most of my winter wardrobe comprises of either wool or cashmere. Layering wool can be quite tricky sometimes and can look bulky if it isn’t done right but loving your tips here!

  18. Westfield wool looks incredible! I loved learning that Merino Wool comes from the Merino sheep that originated from Spain around the turn of the 18th century.I think it’s incredible to be so soft as well as the fact that it’s eco friendly! The neutrals are so chic and can we just take a beat to focus on how gorgeous you and these images are?! This is such a perfectly put together look! I love a good statement earring right now! Also, thanks for the great layering tips! I’m clueless when it come to really dressing for warmth!

  20. Okay this is my definition of what a chic and elegant winter looks like!!! The entire all white wool look amazing on you and LOVE how you layered the look and pop it up with those amazing accessories babe!!! Keep the great style


  21. I am just floored by this wool look! I love the white on white and the coziness of this entire outfit. From the coat to the dress to the bag, this is something I would totally wear! I love Westfield shopping centers and how fun that they do a Wool Week in Australia. What a great way to promote wearing wool for the winter. I am so obsessed with this look and you did such an amazing job styling it. xoxo, Christine
