This evening FindingFemme and I went for a short stroll around the lake. The leaves on the trees have turned a beautiful yellow and the sky is clear for some amazing sunsets. The weather is still mild during the day, but in the evening it becomes very cold.
I love winter time and I love being able to get out my long winter coats and boots. I think anyone who lives in the Goldfields needs to have an extra large wardrobe, as we really need lots of clothes for such distinct seasons. Winter is a great time of year, and it increases your appreciation of the other seasons. I love living in a climate with a real autumn and winter.
Unfortunately most of my coats will no longer do up around the waist. Although things have not been too cold just yet, I went out and bought some warmer layers. I invested in this gorgeous poncho from Forever New and have been wearing it religiously most evenings. I have chosen to belt it for the time being. I am not one to usually wear knits as they can look bulky, but this one is thinner than most yet still very warm.
Enjoy these beautiful evenings..
