Winter Style Wishlist

I don't think this would be an appropriate winter wishlist without a good helping of knitwear and layering pieces. The sudden drop in temperature and the dusting of snow has inspired me to share with you my current winter style inspiration. Creating wishlists is becoming an unhealthy habit of mine to say the least, because whatever I add lengthens my increasing list of things I would like to be in my wardrobe, is that really a bad thing though?

Sweater Dress
A dress in winter? no! I couldn't agree more. In the freezing temperatures and temperamental weather the last thing I want to do is throw on a dress, however recently I have been seeing sweater dresses everywhere. They are a gorgeous layering piece that can add a bit of winter spice to any outfit as well as keeping you toasty warm. The added touch of the roll neck will keep you bag on trend this winter and these dresses pair perfectly with either a pair of thigh high neutral toned boots or some knee high socks.

Monk Shoes
I have been looking for the perfect pair of Monk shoes for a while now. When scrolling through the virtual isles of ASOS I came across this pair from Doc Martens, and if you know me you know that I am a sucker for a good old pair of Doc's. I like how the burgundy shade is two tonal and will look amazing paired with an all black outfit to add a bit of grunge.

Boyfriend Cardigan
This boyfriend fit cardigan is the kind of staple piece that should appear in everyone's winter wardrobe. It would be a great layering piece for all the seasons when you need a bit of extra warmth.

Leather Jacket
Another timeless staple item. I have been on the look out for that perfect faux leather full length jacket for what seems like forever. I always see the cropped kind but why have half the material when you can own it all?

Grey Maxi Dress
This may not seem like your typical item to add to a winter wishlist and granted it isn't. However, picture this dress layered under a oversized sweater with a pair of ankle boots or doc martens peeping out. You can also throw on a jacket and huge scarf to make it ever more winter ready. In winter you don't just have to head to the winter section.

Classic Jumper
More knitwear, you can never have too many jumpers am I right? Now this is just a standard jumper, but to me it is the perfect fit, it isn't tight fitting, nor too baggy so it doesn't appear to be drowning you. For this outfit you can just throw on a pair of skinny jeans and a jacket, then you're out the door.

Black Cut Skinny Jeans
I already own two pairs of black skinny jeans but there always comes a time when you've got to say 'bon voyage' and replace them with a new pair. Admittedly, with this pair of jeans your knees may catch the cold, but I love how the rip in the knees add attention and grunge to the outfit and let's be honest here, you can't really go wrong with a pair of black jeans any time of the year.

What is there not to love about walking around all bundled up in oversized blanket? that's effectively what we are doing right? Winter fashion is all about keeping the staples in and layering them up to create that perfect winter outfit.

Cowl Neck's



Well, the recent turn in events regarding the weather and time change has made it very tedious to take blog pictures ad get posts up, how do people do it? Anyway I found I slight break in the current horrific gales and dark days to take a snapshot of my outfit. With the first ever storm named in Britain it's no wonder the weather is making me want to hibernate in front of the TV with a blanket and cup of tea. Also the countdown to Christmas is well under way, how many days is it when you're reading this? It seems like every advert on TV and every song on the radio is Christmas related but hey I'm not complaining!

Nostalgia with Watches


Watches // Daniel Wellington*

Now, I have a few watches in my collection,  and if I am being honest I am too embarrassed to count. Yes, a normal person might say I probably have too many, I don't disagree with them, but that doesn't mean I love wearing them any less.

I think my love for watches originates itself from my Dad. He also has an eye for watches and in a heart beat if he could he would spend unthinkable amounts of money on that perfect watch. Growing up with him purchasing watch after watch and constantly waiting for him whilst he browses outside out the jewellers windows at the endless Brietling aisles is what spurred my love for watches. Watching someone you look up to repeatedly wear the same thing or browse the same aisles when you are younger gives you a sense of nostalgia as you grow up.

Some people see watches as an practicality, others as an accessory. They are a versatile, traditional accessory that is living on in a technological world where everything is now done digitally. Does anyone even wear watches now? Or do you just look at your phone? The way I see a watch is as a timeless piece to complete an outfit, it finishes a look with a classic feel from a day wear no one would step out of the door without a watch strapped onto their wrist. Are we living in a world where the tradition of wearing a watch is dying out? I sincerely hope not. Even with the technology advances in products such as the Google or Apple watch, a watch is a watch and it looks as if they will still be a staple for many generations to come, even if not it their traditional format of just a watch face.

Second Nature



Shirt // Urban Outfitters

If you are familiar with my outfit posts you may find that there seem to be common reoccurrences. It almost seems second nature to me to throw on an oversized checked shirt with the majority of my outfits. I love the laid back appeal it gives to an outfit but also how it adds interest to an outfit with a pop of colour and texture. In Autumn layering pieces is a great way to keep warm without having to wear a heavy thick coat around, and therefore you can show off your style before the time comes when you have too cover up all aspects of your outfit to prevent frostbite. In this outfit like always I went for a laid back look with a slight put together feel achieved from the Chelsea boots. I created the layered look by pairing a long sleeve v neck with an oversized checked shirt from Urban Outfitters but any shirt would work with this look as it is a neutral colour theme. Over the top I threw on a boyfriend style hoodie and a fedora to complete the outfit.

So now you know my chosen autumn staple, what is yours?
