Winter White / Winter Fruits

Winter has arrived in my part
of the world, bringing with it 
cooler but still clear and sunny days.

The perfect day for my winter
white coat with the faux fur

Pairing the coat with the new
season pears and apples,
purchased at the Farmers Market.

Always a joy enjoying our
seasonal produce.

Each changing season
has its own joy, I am grateful 
to live where we have four 
distinct seasons.

Enjoying the winter sunshine
in my garden.

Another joy of the winter season
for me , the change to my
winter hat collection.
This winter white hat 
from Crochetta is from
the 80s.

Taking the winter whites and
winter fruits to join
Share-in-Style with the
very creative Sacramento.



  1. To see a winter coat and hat paired with pear is most unexpected... and FUN! Loved the combination. How wonderful that you have fruit grow even during winter! I find Australian bloggers very creative and whimsical, and you are no exception! Thank you for joining the fun at Share-in-Style!! Sincerely, Natalia xxxx

    1. Thank you Natalia, always fun to join in Share in Style, Fortunately our winters although cool are not really very severe. XX Jill

  2. Such an honour to have you sharing your style.
    Thank you sooooooooooooooo much

    1. Sacramento, thank you , always enjoy the fun themes at Share in Style.

  3. I think the winter fruits, set off your coat in such a fresh and innovative manner! Well done my dear!


    1. Thank you , Tamera, two of my favourites winter whites and pears.

  4. Hi, Jill, thanks for you comment on my blog. I've heard from a few people who've lost their jobs in the last few years - I guess it's not unusual at all these days, and in spite of legislation it seems the older workers are usually targeted. Oh, well, it's their loss! Good luck to you in whatever direction you take.

    I love your white on white outfit. That's always so classy, and the hat is a great find! I think what really takes this outfit into the COOL zone is the leopard gloves - fab!

  5. Our legislation is the same but discrimination is such a hard thing to prove.We mature workers have so much to give, its just a matter of finding the right fit.I am with you, I hope to continue beyond the set retirement age but in something I enjoy. Thank you for your comments on the outfit.

  6. I'm a sucker for a faux fur collar, it always adds a bit of glamour. The hat looks wonderful on you and have to agree with Val about the gloves giving the whole outfit a cool edge.

    1. Thank you for visiting, so pleased to meet you. I too love a faux fur collar on just about anything.

  7. I love white and I wear it all the year round! You are so cute in these photos, wearing that beautiful coat! The collar is perfect on it! I am a real fan of faux fur collars, and a real fan of fruit too!!

  8. I,m with you Dan , I love the crispness of white in summer and the lightness it brings to a dull winter day. Have a good week my dear. x
