Following on with my scarf obsession, I needed something to brighten up this very neutral outfit.
Top - Debenhams
Trousers - Autograph at Marks and Spencers
Shoes - Pilkolinos (from Spartoo)
Scarf - ASOS - I think
Jacket - Topshop, a long long time ago
This outfit is a bit of an unusual colour combination for winter. The skirt is a actually a summer skirt but I wore it with my favourite new cable knit tights. The shirt is too long so I have tied it in a knot. The bag kind of makes it look a bit out of shape but an across the body bag is the only practical option for me when out and about with children.
Skirt - swapped on posh-swaps.com
Tights - Dororthy Perkins
Boots - El Naturalista (on Spartoo)
Jacket - Autograph at M&S (quite old)
If you live in London or fancy a weekend trip there, there is a great vintage fair running on 14th November in Primrose Hill. This is a great chance to stock up on some unique Christmas presents or get yourself a coat which could include some of the seasons key trends like the camel coat or cape. There are some complimentary tickets up for grabs on the website which you can apply for by visiting Vintage Fashion Fair London.
If you have ever owned a pair of Ugg boots you will probably find them so warm and comfy that you don't want to take them off. Whilst I love being warm and my footwear has to be practical, I am not really a fan of Ugg boots perhaps because you just see so many people wearing them. The latest item on my winter wish list is a really stylish, warm and eco friendly boot from Po-zu.com. There is a whole range of styles but my favourites are the tweed ones which I think would look great with my beloved cable knit tights.
I have been really busy this week writing about xmas party dresses, have you started thinking about Christmas yet?
