There I was, enjoying ‘Sautumer’ (coined by Rosie from The Londoner no less) and then BAM! It’s winter.
How did we go from gloriously sunny days to freezing cold wind overnight? I guess that’s the whole point of seasons, and I should count myself lucky that we got the warmer weather for so long- so long as it’s dry I will try my best not to complain!
That said, if I’m going to survive the cold dark days I need some cosy clothes- this is a little insight into the type of things I’m loving this season!
By now, it’s pretty clear that my wardrobe is very neutral, in fact it’s 90% monochrome,so I’m loving statement accessories- and the lace trimmed trousers are also a great way to add a little texture and interest to my otherwise very boring outfits!
I’ve been searching high and low for a cosy scarf, my usual go to – Zara – has let me down this year. Luckily, & Other Stories have some great offerings, they’er a little pricier but I think they are totally worth it! A good scarf can last many seasons after all, and they make such a difference when it’s chilly! Also, I just want to take a second to appreciate those Topshop ankle boots, and their likeness to these Givenchy beauties, only £810 less! They sold out in a hot minute the first time round but thankfully they’ve come back again so we can all stand a chance of getting a pair.
Here’s the complete rundown of my Favourite 14 (who even knows?!) pieces that I’m lusting after at the moment:
- Button Up Coat, Oasis
- Cashmere Jumper, H&M
- Two Tone Blanket Scarf, & Other Stories
- Suede Biker Jacket, Topshop
- Tri-colour Scarf, River Island
- Buckle Ankle Boots, Topshop
- Circle Yoke Jumper, Karen Millen
- Oversized Cardigan, Whistles
- Lace Trimmed Trousers, River Island
- Khaki Scarf, & Other Stories
- Frayed Hem Jeans, F+F at Tesco
- Black Trainers, New Balance
- Contrast Fabric/Leather Gloves, Zara
- Fine Knit Jumper, H&M
This winter I’m planning on living in the softest knits and layering like crazy, I find chunky knits can be a little too overbearing at times- especially when you’re on and off the tube which has a climate of it’s own! What’s your plan to get through the next few months without turning into an icicle?
