My Kind of Winter Weather and A ShopBop Sale

As long as the sun is shining, my legs will be out and I will be calling it ‘autumn’ (as if it is supposed to be this sunny in winter?!)

__________________________________

And here we are again, experiencing yet more of those gloriously sunshiney days that Perth is known for! The sunny winter days come in a very respectable 2nd on my list of ‘favourite weather’. We are so lucky to get so much sunshine in the middle of winter, I even feel like they deserve to sit above ‘sunny spring days’ and ‘sunny autumn days’.

I can’t even put into words how happy it makes me to see the sun again. These are the sort of days where you don’t yearn so hard to be on that summer Euro trip… says she, days away from escaping the Perth ‘winter’ once again.

Days like these make me forget for a moment that we are in the middle of winter. They make me forget for a moment that winter is even all that bad. And they sure as heck make me forget that glum feeling that the clouds and rain seem to deliver me! (But don’t think for a moment that they stop me from daydreaming about my next destination!)

As soon as those clouds clear and the sky is back to the bright shade of blue that I know and love, my mood is immediately elevated.

I just can’t help but be happy when the sun out. It is honestly like a case of Jekyll and Hyde between summer and winter Mon. Any excuse to not have to rug up to the nines and stay indoors and I will take, run with and smile the whole darn way.

Ok, so it is still a bit too chilly to warrant not wearing anything warm at all, but a confused summer-winter outfit will do just fine. You know, that style that only Perth (and maybe Queensland and the Northern Territory) knows how to do so well – summer on the bottom and winter on the top. It has exactly the same essence as ‘business at the front and party at the back’.

Your favourite summer dress, skirt or shorts thrown together with a jumper or jacket is the perfect ensemble for these sunny winter days. It is warm enough to stave off the winter chill, but uncovered enough to soak up every last ray of sunshine! It is my favourite sort of winter outfit as I can still be my summery self, without absolutely freezing to death. I know, I know, Perth doesn’t even get that cold, stop whinging Mon. It is going to come as a rude shock when I visit somewhere snowy again one day…

In the spirit of sunshiney winters days (and because ShopBop is having a mega sale on all sale items until tomorrow), you can shop my ‘warmth on the top and party on the bottom’ look below. Don’t forget to use ‘SCORE18’ to get an extra 25% off! Happy shopping…
