Layer Up


Shot this outfit a few weekends ago but I feel like I've been all over the place recently and things have kept getting in the way of posting.

The weather has been pretty much the same so still relevant I feel; was a bit concerned that we'd be in the midst of a full on blizzard at this point but all is good so far. Does anyone else feel like we're always told that it's going to be THE WORST WINTER SINCE TIME BEGAN every year? Yawn.

I always find that dressing for this time of year can be a bit tricky- particularly when you're out Christmas shopping and think you've nailed it for the nip in the air, until you walk into the first shop and they've ramped the central heating up to 'Sahara desert' and you feel like your brain's going to melt. Layering is the key!

Faux fur Cossack hat- charity shop
Cross necklace- Rock n Rose (Pixie Lott collection)
Silver friendship bracelet- Links of London
Boyfriend coat- New Look
Jumper- H&M
Leopard sheer top- Oh My Love
Side split maxi skirt- Boohoo
Platrane boots- Jeffrey Campbell

I've been wearing this New Look boyfriend fit oversized coat loads recently. I really wanted one like this last year and didn't manage to find one I liked enough. Spotted this one after they sent me a 20% off birthday coat- meant to be!

My bracelet is from Links of London who, if you don't know, do loads of lovely silver jewellery. They have a really nice range of friendship bracelets like this one which are a little more special than the likes of the things I used to make at school out of plastic threads (anyone remember those? Were they called scoobies?!).

I've been trying to work more silver jewellery into my outfits recently- feel like I've had a gold overload in recent years! The cross necklace I'm wearing from Rock n Rose is a great piece to pull both gold and silver tones together thanks to the chunky gold chain and silver cross charms.

Hope everyone's looking forward to Christmas?
