Winter Wardrobe: What To Wear Wednesday #11

Wednesday already, and boy is it getting cold here in Melbourne! You may have noticed that the last What To Wear Wednesday was two weeks ago.  To fit in with my new schedule and the commencement of Alexie RicRac Sustainable Vintage Wares on 4 June, What To Wear Wednesday styled outfits will be coming to you fortnightly as of today. What does this mean for you, the reader? It means that style posts will be available every second Wednesday, and they’ll be just as awesome as ever, curated from my favourite vintage inspired finds across the web.

The Bureau of Meteorology confirmed these hot days and nights, though there was definitely some variances. On 2 February 2014, while official temperatures recorded at the Latrobe Street observation station (now closed) reached 39 degrees (Celsius; 102.2F), in Croydon, Victoria – 45 minutes out of the CBD where the BOM observation station was at the time – temperatures seared to 44 – 45 C (111.2 – 113F). Needless to say, I was really questioning my choice of dress for The Mister’s brother’s wedding.
