how to keep fashionably warm this winter

18th January 2016
Slippers, pyjamas, dressing gowns, fleeces and all the other snuggly stuff, followers of my Snapchat will be all to familiar with my Winter office wardrobe already but if you don’t, that is generally what you can expect to see me wearing over there. Unless it’s 30 degrees outside, I’m cold and snuggled under some kind of blanket so as we received our first snow fall this year over the weekend you can be certain I am feeling it. And whilst all that snuggly stuff is fine for around the house, I’m not sure how it would go down for meetings and shoots so I actually have to make some kind of effort. [lem_title]Over The Knee Boots[/lem_title] There are so many great ways to add layers to your outfits without resulting in you looking like you really did over indulge this Christmas and Over The Knee boots are definitely up there. Over a pair of statement denim or thermal tights a good quality pair will lock in warmth whilst also elongating your pins. They tend to come back into fashion each year so it’s worth investing in a good pair like the coveted Stuart Weitzman’s. These had been on my lust list for as long as I can remember and when I realised I was buying a new pair each season I decided to stop the madness and invest but there are still so many great styles to suit every budget.[show_shopthepost_widget id=”1339804″][lem_title]Faux Fur[/lem_title] Faux fur is quite possibly the most chic addition to every winter wardrobe and the possibilities are endless. Whether you are wanting a cute cropped jacket or an over sized mongolian coat there are so many statement styles year on year.

[lem_title]Over The Knee Boots[/lem_title]

There are so many great ways to add layers to your outfits without resulting in you looking like you really did over indulge this Christmas and Over The Knee boots are definitely up there. Over a pair of statement denim or thermal tights a good quality pair will lock in warmth whilst also elongating your pins. They tend to come back into fashion each year so it’s worth investing in a good pair like the coveted Stuart Weitzman’s. These had been on my lust list for as long as I can remember and when I realised I was buying a new pair each season I decided to stop the madness and invest but there are still so many great styles to suit every budget.[show_shopthepost_widget id=”1339804″][lem_title]Faux Fur[/lem_title]

Faux fur is quite possibly the most chic addition to every winter wardrobe and the possibilities are endless. Whether you are wanting a cute cropped jacket or an over sized mongolian coat there are so many statement styles year on year. So many, in fact that you might find your self with quite the collection as have I.[show_shopthepost_widget id=”1339828″]

[lem_title]Over-sized Bags[/lem_title]

During the Winter months I tend to opt for slightly larger tote bags to ensure there’s enough room for scarves, gloves and umbrellas so that I’m never caught out whatever the British Weather throws at me. The Givenchy Antigona was my first choice for Winter bag this year but there are a really beautiful selection available right now.[show_shopthepost_widget id=”1339851″]

[lem_title]Cable Knit[/lem_title]

As the temperature drops my cable knit purchasing goes into over drive, they are the perfect knit style to layer up with and really lock in your body heat. Cable knit sweaters tend to look best in an oversized fit and the chunky patterns are extremely forgiving meaning hiding thermals underneath doesn’t compromise your silhouette.[show_shopthepost_widget id=”1339852″]

[lem_title]Thermals[/lem_title]

Thermal layers are my saving graces right now. They work best with roll necks or collared tops so that they camouflage perfectly beneath and due to their special insulating fibres, no body heat is lost through the knitted fabric of the cable knit. OK so they might not be the chicest item you buy for your Winter wardrobe but I can assure you, you will thank me.[show_shopthepost_widget id=”1339856″]

There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad weather attire 💧
A little indulgence from my comfort of my own home thanks to INCREDIBLE @kmp_skin and @freshbeauty Ad 
for the launch of the new Lotus Youth Preserve Resurfacing dream serum which is a gentle AHA serum with prickly pear flower extract said to boost radiance and it was so lovely to be treated to a first trial to get a very first impression of the serum thanks to KMP and her magic hands. I’ve literally never had a facial like it!
The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱
Winter Spring views.
Primrose & Snowdrops are on their way!
February is a very special month, it almost feels like the build up before the crescendo of spring and I can’t help but feel a flutter in my chest at the thought of what’s to come 🌱
