outfit | pastels, stripes & temperamental weather

Forever 21 Sweater, DIY collar, Cotton On Jeans, Hot Options by Target Heels, Rubi Shoes Satchel, Urban Outfitters Watch
Lately, it has been difficult dressing for Sydney's temperamental weather. It's either nice and cool, then blazing hot then suddenly large thunderstorms loom over us; so it has definitely been a challenge trying to dress for what it seems fifty weather conditions all in one day. Since spring is a transitional season with lots of late afternoon rain, I wanted to pull some of my light sweaters out again but still try to incorporate some colour for the spring and what a better way to do it with some lilac denim! I also wore a DIY collar I made just so I didn't have so many layers on. Hopefully, this outfit would help me survive Sydney's temperamental weather!
