Quick snow outfit of the day

Casual hourglass, Outfits


We recently had a lovely weekend in Ohakune, NZ, with our best friends and they took us up the beautiful Mount Ruapehu to have a look before the true ski season starts.  It was stunning, and freezing!  Here is what I threw on to keep myself warm and I felt it worked quite well for comfort and warmth.  I won’t hold this up as a paragon of cutting-edge fashion (!) but what I’m wearing comprises basics we’ve probably all got in our closets, and is fairly flattering for an hourglass frame.

What I’m wearing includes:

  • Woolly bobble hat from Valley Girl (NZ brand)
  • Sunglasses, last season Céline (link goes to NZ store, Sunglasses Hut)
  • Parka coat (old Select, a UK brand)
  • Merino wool gloves from a tourist shop in Auckland (so warm!)
  • Handbag, old from The Warehouse (NZ store)
  • Mid/dark wash skinny jeans, old from Primark (UK brand) in a ‘lift and shape’ cut
  • Fake Converse from The Warehouse

Closer look at my hat and gloves

My feet were still quite chilly, so I’d recommend substituting in some Ugg boots/sheepskin boots for a day like this.

Here is a couple more shots of the scenery taken by my gorgeous husband with his iPhone 🙂
