Love. Winter. As much as warm sun and wearing flip flops make me happy, there’s absolutely nothing like wrapping up in a massive jumper/blanket cape or buying new boots as there’s a crisp chill in the air. Also, hot black forest hot chocolate from Costa Coffee every day? YES PLEASE. With this change in season obviously comes a change in wardrobe, so in this post I’m going to narrow down the items that will be joining mine in the next few months.
A Dark Grey Jacket | I’ve already picked my staple coats for this season (and praying my camel one fits to, she says breathing in!!!), but I really fancy a grey coat. Something oversized and warm and snuggly. Perhaps with a subtle pattern or texture? I’ve got an image in my head so lets see if it exists. Although not quite what I have described I love this one from Cos
Suede Boots | I’ve mentioned these before, but these ASOS boots are the top of my buy list. There’s something so perfect about a good over the knee boot that, come Winter, I want to buy them all. Especially anything suede, you know, the least practical material to have in the UK (think sleet, snow and rain!!! I rest my case)…
A small Bag | I’m partial to an oversized large bag, but I realised the other day that I don’t actually own many small bags (which happen to be the most on trend at the moment especially crossbody ones). I was obsessed with the Gucci Soho Disco Bag for a while , but feel like may be a bit too small, so am leaning towards something similar but a teeny tiny bit bigger. I can’t decide (or have the bank balance for it right now) but I will be doing some investigating over the next few months! The Chloe Drew (two tone) is still fresh in my mind first though…
More Cardigans | I am not a massive fan of cardigans but recently seeing this one from Topshop changed my mind and now I’m a cardigan convert. There’s something so nice about wearing just jeans, a thin top, boots and a chunky knit cardigan on a Winter day. I previously only had one which was reserved for being a slob in the house, but now I feel like I need more in my collection.
Some Properly Massive Scarves | I love big scarves. Ab-so-lutely Love them. I have a bunch already and use them as throws on my sofa because they’re that big. I would like to branch out this year into smaller scarves, this one from Hush is firmly ticking the boxes.
Fine Necklaces | I love the look of dainty, layered necklaces that are either plain or with charms or mixed metals, so will be on the lookout for anything like that. I only usually wear big chunky necklaces but lots of independent retailers will be my best shout for some pretty jewels. This double necklace from OB is super cute
A Leather Jacket | Now, I am a massive fan of leather jackets. This one from Acne is at the front of my virtual aka in my dreams shopping list right now, I’m just not sure if I’m cool enough to pull it off. Maybe with some cuffed jeans, suede ankle boots or loafers and a high neck? What do ya reckon…
