After grabbing our luggage and the hire car we set out for the Blue Mountains. The one and half hours drive makes for a long night. The car's temp gauge said it was one degrees outside. I'm glad I packed a lot of warm layers. At 1.30am we had arrived and were greeted by the warmth of the fire place. The long trip with a delayed flight was quickly forgotten.
The weekend was full of traditions. Lots of chatting over hot coffee. People hogging the warmth in front of the fireplace. Short bread, fruit cake, and mince tarts. A roast dinner followed by home made pudding complete with sixpence and shillings. Family photos, laughter and fun.
With the beautiful surrounds it was a great chance to take some outfit photos. Outdoor is my preferred photography style. However I find it tricky capturing good lighting as I work full time. I tend to stick to indoor studio lighting for convenience. To help fend off the cold I layered up.

What I loved about this outfit, was how comfortable it was. I also managed to stay (mostly) warm whilst enjoying a short stroll. This outfit was very purple, which suited my fun mood on the day. Bright colours were also worn to stand out against the landscape. It's beautiful here.
How do you keep warm in cold weather?
