Just popping by with a quick outfit post. Anyone who knows me, will tell you how much I love Winter; hot chocolate in bed, the sound of rain against the windows, Christmas (don’t even get me started on Christmas!!). My main love of Winter is the fashion; comfy jumpers, leather boots, knitted tights, long socks, hats, coats, layers, the colours! I could go on. As the days get shorter and the nights colder, I suddenly come alive. Here’s today’s outfit.
I bought this dress in Ireland a year or 2 ago. The top is so soft and thick, perfect for winter. The bottom is a chiffon layer atop cotton, with a lace hemline. The crocheted waist makes it so cute. My buckled shoes are from New Look and are also available in brown.
My Mum bought me these tights a few years ago. They have such a unique and interesting texture, they’re always fun to wear. You can see the pretty lace detail of my dress too. Very vintage.
This cameo necklace was another of my Great Grandmothers and it gets a lot of interest from my friends and work colleagues.
There is a constant feeling of Winter and Christmas in my room with my snowflake fairy lights which I bought from Ikea a few years ago (put they still sell HERE!). They’re so long, they cover over half of my room! It makes me feel all snuggly and romantic when I sit and type with them on every night.
Yesterday I went to an Orla Kiely sample sale in London. I’ve never been to a sample sale before and just kept imagining that scene from Confessions of a Shopaholic, it was nothing like that. I ended up buying 2 skirts; one that I can wear to work and one I can wear to party in. Keep a look out over the next week for their feature on the blog. The Orla Kiely Sample sale is still on, 11am-7pm until Saturday 26th October 2013. You can find it at 2 Percy Street, just off Tottenham Court Road. There is a £1 donation entry fee, but it is totally worth it! Now I must resist the urge to go back…
