Winter, frosts, Arctic winds, chapped lips and all. Despite the grey and the cold, I do love winter. My chance to wrap up in cosy knits, wool scarves and thick tights. In the above image, I am wearing my trusty mohair coat, vintage darling! Found in a charity shop a few years ago. It’s thick and warm, and it’s neutral colour goes with everything! £10! I know! I love it, especially on long winter walks.
I’m not a fashionista by any stretch, I just wear what I like, and generally try not to look like I’ve just woken up (when really I have!). I love clothes that are comfortable, a mix of high street and vintage, and clothes which express who I am, and hope I don’t look too frumpy at the same time!.
So I thought I would give a little guide to some of my favourite high street winter wardrobe essentials. A good warm coat, thick merino jumper, skinny jeans, blanket scarf, leather tote and of course a decent hand cream.
What are your winter wardrobe essentials? Thermal undies? Me too! It’s freezing!!
Here are some of my favourites which are on my xmas list:
