Winter is coming, well it has definitely come to Glasgow! SO I thought i’d fill you in on a few bits and bobs i’ve picked up recently to make these winter winds a little more bearable. It’s tough to look good in the cold and the rain, especially when you can barely keep a hold of your umbrella, but these wintery winners should ease the storm.
Let’s start with a winter basic, the fluffy jumper. We all have our old faithful ‘slouchy jumper’. You know the one… it’s typically reserved for time of the months, break ups, Netflix and the flu… Got it? My old faithful has seen better days so this season was definitely the right time to treat myself to a couple of basic knits, ones with a little less emotionally damage. These chunky crew necks are perfect for layering and look cute with both jeans and thick tights. I them up in New Look in both basic rust and wheat tones. These colours are perfect for that transition from autumn to winter and were a bargain at 17.99 each.
Another warmer I picked up was this cute little beanie by ‘Reason’ for Urban Outfitters. Despite the inevitable plague that is hat hair this little guy looks very cute on a blustery morning. The deep burgundy shade is a great colour match against a classic green parka AND most importantly it will keep you toasty and warm despite the gales. £18
While we’re on the subject of wrapping up warm I recently picked up a gorgeous tartan scarf from Miss Selfridge and have worn it every day since. This thick, deep red and burgundy scarf is the perfect winter warmer, adding interest to even the simplest of outfits. A classic piece to be worn season after season – i’ll probably still be wearing it in Summer. £16
My last wardrobe pick comes in the form of these gorgeous little boots. These bad boys were a definite impulse buy (thanks ASOS) but i’ve worn them most days since. I’d like to formally apologise to my Dr Martens who feel particularly slighted by this purchase, but love is hard to disguise, and I LOVE these shoes. The fringe detail adds femininity to an otherwise androgynous design template, keeping the shoe/boot fun and chic. £60
Next up it’s all about the details. I’ve been a little Vampy as far as make up recently. My winter wardrobe is dominated by rich greens and burgundies, a trend that’s influenced my lipstick look (okay, maybe not the greens). I picked up a MAC Viva Glam in the shade III, a matte brown/red shade which makes a big impact. I love the darker look and am really trying to embrace it this season, even through to the minor details… Well you’ve got to have nails to match! (Maybeline Super Stay).
That’s it for my winter style so far, how are you rocking your winter warmers? Let me know in the comments.
Lots of love,
