Good morning everyone, todays attire is based around my most worn pieces and fives items found in my A/W wardrobe. I am constantly looking to maximise my usage of items that I have in my my wardrobe. So when it comes to purchasing new items I am always on the lookout for timeless pieces. Ones which come around season after season rather than those pieces which are on trend. I find they don’t tend to get much wear and end up sitting at the back of my wardrobe. If I am not 100% sure about an item and contemplating whether it’s worth investing in or not, I will go for a more affordable option. Just like these faux leather trousers I am wearing, which have been worn time and time again.
There has been a slight dip in the temperature and on Friday morning I woke up to find frozen ice on the windscreen of the car. It always tends to be rather cold and chilly in the mornings. So for the morning drop off I found my self reaching for a selection of items which I knew would keep me warm and cozy. Also at the same time making sure that my style isn’t compromised by all the layers. So with that in mind I thought it would be a great opportunity to share this with you all.
Lets begin with the first item the coat, whether it be a faux leather, faux fur or like my leopard print one here, it’s a must around this time of year. During the months from October to December here in the UK you will no doubt be out and about. Whether its for, Halloween, fireworks, Christmas light displays or parties. So whenever I am attending several of these I always head for my trusted coat. There are so many styles to choose from. Therefore there shouldn’t be any reason for us to compromise on our styles. My coat is from Karen Millen and is from their last years collection. The coat has faux leather piping details which adds another dimension to the coat. In the leopard print which I can where year after year and is a great investment piece in my opinion.
FAUX LEATHER TROUSERS
Next and onto my faux leather trousers, these are a must in my Winter wardrobe. I find them so easy to style and they sure do keep me warm and toasty! A faux leather trouser can instantly transform a simple outfit and give it some edge for a more rock and roll vibe. This pair is from H&M and I absolutely adore them, I wish I had bought another pair. I have been on the look out for a new pair, not found one just yet.
If you know me you will already know that I have a thing for hats. I remember my dad used to tell me when I was younger, you lose heat through the top of your head, make sure to wear your hat. Of course back then I didn’t think wearing hats was cool so I never listened. But still bobble hats where never my thing and still isn’t, although never say never. So naturally around this time of year you a bound to find an array of hats in different shapes and styles. My black fedora is from Whistles which I bought last summer, don’t you just love a piece of item that you can wear during all four seasons!
Who doesn’t adore a pair of comfortable ankle boots? Whether it’s heeled ones like mine or if your prefer the Chelsea boots, which by the way make a come back every winter. You are sure to find them in stores everywhere from designer ones to the hight street. These black velvet ankle boots with the gold heels are from Carvela at Kurt Geiger.
Over the years I have become more accustomed to wearing oversized tops, whether it be a shirt, jumper or a tee. I find it rather easy to just throw on an oversized item, specially on the school runs. I could have easily gone for a jumper here instead of the shirt. But I am sure I have mentioned this before I hate feeling hot, I would rather feel a littler colder than feel so hot that I feel dizzy. When layering a jumper I would opt for a cashmere one as they tend to be light in weight and rather soft and of course will keep you warm.
