'Twas a glorious weekday or so that we decided to take a spontaneous trip to the spectacular Blue Mountains region in Sydney. Now, I know these outfit dissections are a few weeks late, but who am I to deny you the picture perfect gardens that I so furiously coordinated my ensembles with?

As soon as the temperature in Katoomba plummeted, I unleashed a series of outerwear onslaughts that saw me waltzing to the Three Sisters in layers and layers whilst bewildering unsuspecting passersby on the way. In this instance especially, it was well worth it. No bloody complaints about this brilliant view.

And yes, clearly I am all about the day-to-night pastel coat dream — they are an absolute feminine go-to, wouldn't you agree?

LAISON Yara Jacket with Chiffon Belt — 10% discount with code 'Willabelle'

Something a little unusual for me particularly given my notorious preference of wearing the artist's palette over black as seen on my Instagram

This blazer is, in fact, all kinds of wrap goodness with yards and yards of unfussy chiffon for your own perverted play. Certainly, there are no rules to the outerwear game. Here, I am wearing the pièce de résistance as a top: cinching the waist to create a silhouette, and keeping the back purposefully split into two because, peek-a-boo.

And so it must be true, cats have nine lives, a well-appointed black blazer has just as many.
