I do not know whether I am coming or going at the moment. One day I’m in 90 degreee heat in Las Vegas, then the next I am wearing numerous layers because the temperatures in the UK have dropped so much that I feel that I’m in the Artic. To be fair, I do love the mixture of being able to wear all my summer clothes all year round, but I cannot express my love for the UK cold weather. Wrapping up warm, layers and lounge wear make me happy and I’ve been relishing in the cooler weather as I’ve been able to dig out some old favourites as well as expand my wardrobe ready for the winter. Bows Boutiques is a new fashion website that I’ve found that specialises in the latest trends from clothing to footwear and accessories, and I couldn’t resist having a splurge and adding to my wardrobe.
Whilst the weather is still quite mild at the moment, oversized sweaters have to be one of my go to items. Comfortable to wear for lounging around the house, yet they can be dressed up for heading out. The Scarlett Sequin Heart Oversized Jumper is perfect for such occasions. The batwing style is flattering and I really do like how it sits. With some oversized jumpers, and being large of chest, I do run the risk of it looking like I am wearing a sack, however when teamed with black disco pants, it looks flattering without looking boxy. With a slim pant and oversized jumper, it draws attention away from the chest area and emphasises my legs and makes my figure look smaller. Dressing up a casual jumper is easy when adding a simple pair of black ankle boots like the Leah Suede Effect Ankle Boot. With a heel that isn’t too daunting for day to day wear, they are really comfortable. They also sit nicely around the ankle, at the most flattering length, which is ideal if your ankles are slightly wide. Wearing the boots on the first outing, I was most impressed at how comfortable they were, without rubbing on my heels. They broke in really quickly and they held my ankles in the right place, so there was no discomfort when walking around for hours.
My mum is probably rolling her eyes at me whilst reading this post, as she will be thinking ‘another winter coat, Anoushka?’ I don’t want to say I have a problem, but I have got three new coats for the winter months so far. I treated myself to a soft leather biker jacket, a waxed jacket for the colder weather and now my new favourite, the Elizabeth Chunk Faux Fur Padded Coat. Black? Check. Warm? Check. Faux fur? Check, check, check. It’s perfect. I have never had a padded coat before as I always found that they altered my shape and made me look bigger than I am, but I have fallen in love with the Elizabeth. The faux fur collar is made of the softest faux fur, which can also be removed to use the hidden hood. Warm is an understatement when wearing the coat. In fact, it’s not actually cold enough to wear it right now, as the padding makes you feel so cosy, it’s almost too much to bear. I actually can’t wait until it’s freezing out so I can wear this all the time. The Elizabeth coat is only £59.99, which for the quality, I’m very impressed. It looks a lot more expensive than it actually is, and the sleek gold zips and belt detailing give it a more luxurious feel.
I’m crushing on the Bows Boutiques website right now, and I’ve spotted some gorgeous lounge wear that I can totally see myself in over the next few months. Keep up to date with the newest stock, with new styles added daily on the Bows Boutiques Instagram account.
