Oh yeah baby!  It’s nearly that time again.  Winter kicks in on 1 June for those of us in the Antipodes, and our Winter Style File 14 day style challenge kicks off.

A fortnight of daily style prompt celebrating winter style.  Sarah from She Writes and I look forward to checking out the #winterstylefile hashtag for the rest of winter when we need some style inspiration too.
