Now that it's December 1st, it's now 100% winter, and the weather is truly proving that. It's absolutely freezing at the moment. I have now realised that I don't actually own winter clothes. I have 3 coats but they all smell like horses and my most worn shoes are converses which aren't the warmest shoes in the world. This realisation made me browse the internet for a few hours to pick out some items that I'm dying to get. You're probably looking at the items thinking some of them don't look very warm and snuggly, but I've gotta dress for the festive season too!
My main item of need is definitely a new coat. As I said, I have coats, but they've all been worn to the horses and you can never get rid of that smell. The first two coats are the same, but in different colours, this is something I do a lot. I'll like a style and buy it in so many colours and hardly every wear all of them, but oh well. The burgundy version is so on trend right now, everything burgundy is making it's way onto my wishlist. The black version is just so practical and easy to style, it had to be here. The next coat just screams winter, it's fluffy and looks so warm. I just need it.
Tartan is something that always crops up in winter for me, but I've never bought anything. This year I'm planning to take the plunge and buy a few items as they're so wearable. Capes are the bomb at the moment, everyone has one, expect me so obviously this one made it onto my list. The chiffon shirt is perfect to just throw over a simple top to add an extra layer, as I don't really do shirts at all on their own. The two monochrome tartan styles are kind of my transition to tartan I'd say, they're easy to wear and will help me decide whether the trend will suit or not. Also the dress is perfect for the days when I want to dress up a bit but the cold is screaming at me.
The playsuit is probably the most unpractical item ever, but I love playsuits and the festive season is approaching us very soon, so I thought they'd be perfect to dress up with some strappy heels, a nice jacket, some jewellery and a pretty clutch. They can also be dressed down in the day with some tights and a pair of chelsea boots. Perfectly transitional between day and night.
As nights are getting colder, we all want something to snuggle up in with a hot chocolate. When I spotted this dressing gown, I almost screamed. It's so cute, and it's got ears, like want more can you want? I'm a sucker for anything animal like, I think I own about 8 animal onesies, and I just bought a fluffy sheep one, I need help. Lastly, I was looking for some new winter boots as I have a few pairs but they're all quite high heeled, which isn't practical when it's slippy. I saw this burgundy pair and I kept going back to look at them, and I really like them. They're not something I'd usually go for as all my shoes are black, literally, but I'm completely won over by this pair.
