I know spring is almost insight, but, winter is here for a couple more months, so what better time to talk about the cosy knits, coats and THE best boots I think I’ve ever purchased. I’m a summer baby so the warm months are my favourite, but I have to say I do have a soft spot for winter dressing. For me it’s all about layering, turtlenecks (yes, still obsessed with a good turtleneck) and feeling comfortable, and this year I feel like my style has become even more minimalist and toned down. I don’t think my style falls quite into that bracket just yet, but my main purpose is to always buy with intention, picking quality over quantity and things that I *hope* will last for years.
They’re really having a moment, it seems everyone and their mum has a pair of hiker boots, but regardless of whether they’re super trendy they work SO well as part of a minimal dressers wardrobe. I picked up these hiker boots from Marks and Spencer before my holiday to Copenhagen (see what we got up to), and I wore them pretty much every day. They kept my feet toasty and didn’t hurt one bit even after 3 days of continuous site seeing, they’re easily the best investment I’ve made all winter.
I was v kindly gifted this puffer down coat from Crew*, and it’s become a wardrobe staple for me. The oversized puffer coat is also a massive trend, this coat from Crew doesn’t quite fall into that category but it’s more wearable and practical (and probably going to stand the test of time). It’s super warm and comfortable, and although it is practical I still feel put together wearing it, so it ticks the boxes for meeeee. A more recent addition to my wardrobe is this oversized wool jacket. Layered up it’s surprisingly warm and I love the oversized shape.
To me there’s nothing more chic than an oversized knit, skinny jeans and heeled boots. I love the simplicity, and over the past few years it’s kind of become my uniform. Annoyingly my skin is SUPER sensitive to wool and natural fibres (even merino!) so I have to either layer up or go for other options which can be limiting. & Other Stories always nails it, H&M do some amazing knits too and if you’re feeling super fancy and don’t have uncooperative skin like I do, Arket do some amazing alpaca and wool blend knits!
I’m still here for straight leg jeans! They’ve been pretty much all I’ve worn for the past two years. In a random sale a few months back I managed to bag the most amazing pairs of straight leg jeans from Mango. I did buy the Levi Ribcage jeans which I did absolutely love, but felt like they would be more of a summer jean and nothing something I would reach for in the winter. The Mango jeans are the perfect leg length for me, and they look good stressed up or down.
I was cautious buying a black beanie incase I resembled a burglar, thankfully I don’t *think* I quite tip over to that, and I’ve been reaching for more than my others. I bought this one from Uniqlo , and it’s the perfect fit for my little pea head with just the right amount of slouch to it (who knew getting a beanie right would be so hard!?).
