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:

  1. Button Up Coat, Oasis 
  2. Cashmere Jumper, H&M
  3. Two Tone Blanket Scarf, & Other Stories
  4. Suede Biker Jacket, Topshop
  5. Tri-colour Scarf, River Island
  6. Buckle Ankle Boots, Topshop
  7. Circle Yoke Jumper, Karen Millen
  8. Oversized Cardigan, Whistles
  9. Lace Trimmed Trousers, River Island
  10. Khaki Scarf, & Other Stories
  11. Frayed Hem Jeans, F+F at Tesco
  12. Black Trainers, New Balance
  13. Contrast Fabric/Leather Gloves, Zara
  14. 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?

My favourite items out there to keep you warm during the colder months

  • It’s soo crazy how the weather has been jumping all over the place! I love your wish list, there are so many great cold weather pieces. That tan cardigan looks so cozy!

    • I’m hoping to get a few oversized cardigans this year- they’re great under longer coats and are like wearing a blanket!

  • Those ankle boots are gorgeous – what a great find! I’m definitely going for layering this winter too, it’s a lot easier than sweating in a big chunky knit or freezing in a tiny little top! x

    • It’s always a pain when you take a huge coat off and only have a t-shirt underneath so end up cold again, layering is definitely the best way!

  • I really want to buy myself a cashmere grey jumper and that one from H&M ticks all the boxes. Such a great investment piece. Also love all the scarves, lovely picks!

    • Me too- I think going simple is the best option as then you know it’ll still work for years to come!

  • i love the colour palette you went for and cashmere is a great choice for winter. i once snapped a jumper for 30€ in the sales and i was over the moon.

    • That sounds like a dream come true- I’m definitely going to keep my eye out for some bargains this year!

  • Oh I love all of these items! I pretty much live in all-black outfits that generally consist of black skinny jeans and a top, so those trousers would be a perfect change for me! So cute. I’m loving New Looks scarves this year. Last year I got all of my scarves from New Look and H&M and I love them all so much

    • I’m exactly the same! Ooo I’ll have to pop in store and have a look and see what’s there- I find it difficult shopping for scarves online as you never really know what size/shape they are!
