Sydney weather is great at the moment, but the temperature changes quickly. It’s cold in the morning, the sun comes out and it’s like a mild summer’s day up until about 4pm, and then it’s back to being cold again after the sun goes down. The best way to combat this is to layer. During the day when it gets warmer, I won’t wear a jacket but I’ll want one stashed somewhere close by so I can layer back on once it gets cooler in the afternoon.
The one staple that I always pack with me is the Uniqlo Ultra Light Down Jacket. This jacket is incredibly warm, and it keeps its shape so there’s no need to be precious with it. It’s super lightweight and comfortable. When I’m not blogging or shooting, you’ll often find me running around in sneakers and really comfortable clothes. I usually throw this in my handbag or just leave it in my car, as it folds into a tiny little bag. (The jacket comes with its own bag! Perfect!)
I love this jacket so much that I had to get my mum one! Since she takes Grizzly (our Pomeranian) for a walk early in the morning when it’s quite cold dewy at the park, I picked the Ultra Light down Parka for her because it has a hoodie for the mornings as they get colder.
Here I’m pairing the ultra light down jacket with a chambray shirt and ultra fine merino crew neck knit with Uniqlo’s super comfy jogger pants. I’m looking forward to a bit of cold weather here in Sydney before I head over to London in 3 weeks! Yikes! 3 weeks to go! Count down is on that’s for sure. I’ll be packing this jacket with me!
