I have decided that there is something seriously weird about how I view the world and in particular the seasons. As soon as it hits October, I’m all set for Autumn and ready to get into my faux fur coats, and once New Year has passed, I’m ready for spring and light weight clothes. In reality, December is quite warm compared to the end of January, and I am wondering why my feet are so cold when it’s minus 1 at 7am on a cold, frosty February morning. I need to really think about this when the colder weather comes in towards the end of this year. Thankfully, we are nearing the end of this cold snap and it really is the last bite of winter. This also means it’s the last chance to wear my big chunky winter wear, which does make me feel quite sad. Resurrecting my Girl in The Mirror, I’m bringing my ultimate in winter warming couture.
This winter I have found myself living in jeans, which is quite unusual for me. I’ve found that the super skinny high waisted jeans from Primark, which are just £9 have been an absolute godsend in both the comfort and the style stakes. More like a jegging with a button and zip fastening and rear pockets, they fit like an dream. They come in different leg lengths which is perfect for a tall gal like myself, and I love the 34″ as my regular fit, with a 32″ leg for an ankle grazing finish.
My staple basics in my wardrobe this winter have included many slogan t.shirts. It does surprise me, as I seem to have done a full one eighty with my style and swapped my usual shirts for t.shirts. I am loving this Girlfriend Material slogan tee from Lasula. You can’t beat comfort, and this cotton tee is lovely to wear, and looks great with jeans. The sleeves were a little too long for my liking so I have turned them up slightly for an edgier look.
I had it in my head that I needed a yellow quilted jacket for winter and I cannot express how happy I am with my decision and for stepping out of my comfort zone with an item of clothing that has some vibrancy to it. It makes a huge change to my neutral colour palette and I am obsessed with my mustard fitted quilted coat from Lasula. It is so warm and toasty that I don’t want to wear it zipped up as it gets a tad too warm. It would be perfect for winter holidays where the temperatures are really low. I’ve been combining my coat with a chunky scarf and light layers underneath. My scarf was part of my winners goody bag from the We Blog North blog awards, and I’ve worn it constantly since I received it. It’s just so fluffy and cosy. Best clothing decision ever.
My love of Timberland boots has grown even stronger and I have added another pair to my collection. My last pair were a pair of the tall lace up’s in black, but I wanted something slightly different for my next pair. I already own a pair of the Nellie Timberlands in Natural, so I have chosen the Nellie Timberlands in grey. Ankle length, but with a smaller side profile, I find them to be very wearable with several outfits. I love teaming my Timberlands with tights and dresses and I must say that they are spot on with my aesthetic. Jake Shoes has so many options available in the Timberland range that I was a bit spoilt for choice when looking, and I have seen a pair that a more trainer like which has gone straight on my wish list.
To finish of an outfit, a girl needs somewhere to store her lipgloss, mobile phone and cash cards. My bag of choice for this winter has been my Cambridge Satchel. I have wanted a Cambridge satchel for so long and after I got a Cambridge Satchel Mini Poppy last summer, I have been lusting over the larger satchel sized bags. I finally took the plunge with an 11inch The Cloud bag with handle, in Oxblood leather with gold hardware and my initials embossed just above the clasp. I am so in love with my bag. I don’t think I can express just how much. Not only is it beautiful, but it fits so much inside and looks so sleek, smart and stylish. I think every girl needs a classic oxblood bag in their lives.
I am sad that winter will soon be over however with winter leaving us, it does mean that spring and summer are on their way, and you know what that means…..More new clothes!!This post may contain PR samples that have been sent to me for consideration for review however all my opinions will be my own.
