Last days of chilly

So spring has sprung for us in the southern hemisphere although the crisp mornings are still much more on the chilly side of things! I’m making the most of the coolness to get as much wear out of my beloved winter layers as possible; check out my work ensemble for the details!

I like wearing alternatives to a corporate business suit by matching a feature jacket with classic bottoms. Here I’ve got a jacket from Melia by Night – a label I’m really excited about that is made and designed in Melbourne – something which I personally value. Pants are by Hussein Chalayan and bought at assin, handbag from Witchery and shoes by ziera. The leather gloves which I’m still getting lots and lots of wear out of as shown in my other outfit posts, are a line I’m working on for Business Chic! Handy for keeping warm but functional enough to still play on your smartphone, drop me a line at cheryl @ if you would like a pair!

The BusiChic line of fingerless leather gloves - warm, functional and adds edge to office wear!

My newest handbag from Witchery - I'm a sucker for all things patent leather but was particularly taken with the rose gold hardware.

Need orthopedic footwear that doesn't make you want to cry? I'm liking ziera shoes - previously known as kumfs - they have a range of shoes that one can insert their orthotics into like these booties I got on sale recently!

Many thanks to stylist & photographer Meagan Harding for taking these images; stay tuned to BusiChic for a feature on her super-ace style soon!

How are you enjoying spring so far and what wintry pieces are you trying to make the most out of before the warmer weather arrives?


  1. Looking good my dear! Hope all is well with you – sorry I’ve been so offline recently! In full prep-mode for New York. Flights booked for early October *eek*!

    I’m going to tweet you about the gloves. I seriously want some before I leave the country 🙂

  3. Love the gloves! Love the bag! You look gorgeous.

  4. Great outfit. Especially love the jacket. It has such lovely piping.

  5. I love that Witchery bag… the more I see it in blogs… the more I want it.

    • Thanks Merowyn, I must say that it is a really good size for fitting in lots of things and finding them easily AND still look relatively polished! Can’t say that I’m surprised to hear that it’s popular; which other blogs have featured it too? I’d love to see how we’ve each styled it!
