These jeans are probably the brightest thing in my winter wardrobe right now - I say winter wardrobe... They're an all year, any time piece really. I adore them, and I feel so lucky to have picked them up and nabbed them in the VC Swap Shop a couple of weeks ago.
I wore this 'rock-chick-y' outfit to London last week for the M&Co Press Day! I may have been the brightest person there and looks right out of place, but hey-ho, when I wake up, I style my outfit to what I feel like wearing that day or what style I feel fits what I'm feeling that day. It's weird how it works out - how most of my outfits come to mind...
The way I style my outfits in the morning is with this quote in mind: "When a woman says she has nothing to wear she really means I have nothing for who I need to be that day" - Caitlin Moran. There's always something in my wardrobe a little like who I'm meant to be that day if not completely who I'm meant to be - and this day I needed to go a little rock chick!
Christmas Jumpers, all the Christmas jumpers! I've got my eye on one too many and now that I have full flexibility on what I wear to work I'm pretty sure I'll be wearing Christmas jumpers for at least the last two weeks around Christmas. I already have three pretty awesome jumpers, but there's room for one or two more in my life. My ultimate favourites are definitely the skirt for something a little different, the first penguin jumper and the DIY gingerbread man! It's the tartan print that wins me over with the gingerbread one.
These are all so lovely I wish I had them all...
My favourites are a quite lairy, but I am wandering towards the quieter ones like the bow jumper and reindeer jumper for their simplicity and cosy look. I don't actually think I could choose if I'm honest - I'll have to just go with what comes to me first!
I'm so excited for Christmas and I'm half way through shopping it all. Who else is excited for Christmas???
Oh, I'm loving winter this season. This year I'm excited for it all!I've always said I'm a summer girl and at heart, I really am! But somewhere in there lies a girl who's so in love with winter and everything that comes with it, that I completely contradict myself and go against everything I said when the sun was out.
Not only does the winter bring me all the celebrations: Christmas, New Year, all the birthdays and anniversaries - it also means I get to wear my coats and jumpers, cosy up under a duvet with films and have any excuse to buy all the hot drinks I possibly can. It's just glorious! It's not yet hit that peak when it gets really icy and cold here in England, but when it does I'll be ready for it. I kinda hope it snows too.
So in the spirit of all that's autumn and winter, and with my new Pinterest obsession, I've made myself a little Autumn/Winter board with a few inspirational visual aids I'd like to share to get you really feeling this season as much as I am.
Enjoy, and if you like it let me know if you'd like to see this sort of thing more often!
Winter Hair: curls au naturelle, full of snow or under a hat. Possibly with some purple at some point.
Always in jumpers. Or as often as possible.
Fashspirations: Layering, jumpers, tartan - a lot of it, over the knee boots eventually, big scarves, clashing prints and dark colours.
My winter make up will be: dark lips, vivid eyes in dark colours and christmas colours, wintery fingertips covered in glitter.
Winter is: Snuggling by a fire, in big thick socks, blankets upon blankets, doing bugger all, or reading endless Christmas themed blog posts and drinking as much tea as possible.
Endless hot chocolates (on top of tea) and winter warmer food is all I want. I want to try making my own dumpling stew and bread bowls this year ♥
London in the winter. It's amazing. I want to see snowy London this year, and winter wonderland again. I'll go shopping in the new year and enjoy the lights around Christmas time.
As difficult as it may make life, will the winter sky bring us some snow please?
