OOTD :: Help! I want to wear my slip dress but it’s getting cold out there!

Autumn may be treating us very kindly here in Sydney, but there’s an undeniable nip in the air. But riding a slip dress obsession at the moment has seen me come up with ways to avoid freezing my butt off while putting together some outfits I’d not thought of putting together before.


My brand new knee length lace trim slip dress from Decjuba had barely hit my wardrobe before it started cooling down, and despite my best efforts no amount of sunshine could make up for the drop in temperatures or wind chill. And really really really wanting to wear it to a family celebration on the weekend led to one of my best outfits ever: simple and timeless.

A basic denim jacket {you know, the kind that basically saves every outfit}, and some fitted heeled boots had me feelin’ fine.

The same dress also works with this hot little leopard print bomber from the same store and a pair of Converse…

And when I dared to emerge from the home reno’s that are feeling like they’re dragging on forever, I just desperately needed to wear my couple of years old polka dot slip dress from Zimmermann. Paired with a $10 cardigan from Big W and flat knee high boots {the Converse weren’t doing it for me}, I was warm and toasty and channeling a definite 90’s vibe.

Buttoned, unbuttoned, or even partially buttoned, the lightweight cardigan was all I needed, and I have to say that this bargain little number which I have in three colours has possibly been the Autumn fashion standout for me.

And then there’s my perfect leopard print slip dress from Bec and Bridge that I’ve been determined to wear as much as possible. It’s also the best one to do the high-low thing with as well, because the absolute best look for me when needing to add layers is when I wear it with my trusty denim jacket and old white Converse.

And seriously, how much are we loving the whole 90’s revival thing???
