The temperature has definitely dropped this past week and with the countdown on for the last few weeks of 2017, it’s safe to say winter is well and truly upon us. for one, LOVE winter fashion. I love wrapping up warm to keep the cold at bay and winter gives me the chance to experiment more with different colours.
A staple for winter for me, is a good winter coat. I think a striking coat or jacket makes or breaks an outfit so I was thrilled to be sent this gorgeous plum jacket which has such quirky unusual buttons. I instantly fell in love as it is such a gorgeous colour and really makes a statement with the buttons on the front and to the back. The buttons themselves are bold and a tad alternative to your bog standard coat.
It has a fitted cut which makes for a really flattering stylish look this chilly season. It has pockets either side and the neckline keeps you warm as it comes up high. Please note this jacket is dry clean only.
I was also sent this gorgeous blue jumper with the lace detail at the top of the sleeves. Winter is definitely the time to be rocking a good snuggly knit but I always like to have a subtle hint of fun so this flower-like shoulder detail really gives the jumper an extra edge to a plain blue one.
It is really comfy and fits really well and better still it was under a tenner! Both the coat and the jumper can easily be dressed up as I wore them to afternoon tea but they similarly could be worn with jeans and a pair of flat boots for the school run. I love investing in key pieces that can work in various situations so you are limited to when and where you can wear them.
