Must Have of the Moment

Hello everyone! 
So I really am not usually one for Jean leggings, or 'jeggings'. But, it seems Country Road has found a way to make them look good, that is to say, not Supre cheap.  They're really in right now, really in, which is unfortunate for me, because they are skin tight and only look remotely good on super skinny stick insects. BUT this is my exciting news! Country Road has designed a pair of women's 'Skinny Stretch Jeggings'! These pants are made out of cotton and polyester, which means they sit a little nicer than regular leggings. The thing that differentaites these pants from anything you have ever seen, is that they honestly look good, no, great, on anyone! The staff at Country Road call them 'Magic Pants'. I cannot explain them, you have to try them! And for only $75, Country Road has made them into an absolute steal!! 

What do you think? Here's the link:

What a girl wants....this winter

Hello everybody! I know I have been absolutely terrible lately, but with schoolwork know how it gets. Anyway, had a fabulous idea of a post today, which is also extremely relevant. 
It is absolutely freezing down here in Melbourne at the moment, which I initially despised, but I am beginning to love it as it means I get to wear all of my new clothes for winter. The other day I went for a big shop and bought a couple of wonderful pieces, that I thought I absolutely had to show you! 

Firstly, a faux fur vest. I am a gal on a budget, so when I saw this one in Just Jeans for only $50, I thought it was a must-have. This sleeveless Fur Gillet is in a mocha colour, which was exactly what I was looking for. Now, the really random thing is that this is actually a piece for children. I really wanted a cropped vest, so a girls 14 was the perfect fit. You can also pick up one that looks very similar at: Forever New or Pilgrim. 
I am planning on wearing this vest with two different looks. Firstly one for day, skinny jeans, black ankle boots, a black long sleeve and the vest. And one for night, black high ankle boots, black tights, a black flowy dress (which i am still to find), and the vest. What are your thoughts? 

I have been thinking about getting a pair of heeled black boots for a little while now. I figure, in winter, with jeans and a jacket, or with tights and a dress, they could look very stylish. I picked up these in the Myer 25% off boots sale today. They are by the brand Windsor Smith, but I literally found five pairs that were really similar. With the sale discount, they came to $120. It was a little more than I wanted to spend, but mum said they were good quality and I would get a lot of wear out of them. 

And the last thing I bought was this little Sportsgirl vest. I haven't been looking for one or anything, but I just thought it was cute to wear with a white long sleeved tee, skinny jeans and ankle boots. And for only $40, I thought it was quite a steal!

So that's what I have been up to today. Have you guys found any must haves for winter?
