Winter has finally come to an end, so I would like to take this opportunity to reflect on my winter wardrobe before everything gets put away until next year. I thought it would be a good idea to show you my most worn clothing items from the winter.
I am very unadventurous when it comes to dressing for the winter; I pretty much just wear jeans, a jumper and a coat everyday…as long as I’m not cold, I’m happy! I have recently got two new favourite brands: Joules and Jack Wills- you will see them featured in this post!
This is the coat I have been wearing all winter…and all of last winter as well! I bought it from New Look in the petite section, I remember it cost £45. I remember how much it cost because it was the first brand new coat I ever bought. Previously, I just bought second-hand coats from charity shops and car boot sales. Parka coats have always been popular with people, but this is my first one. I remember trying them on before, but they never seemed to fit right and were too long. I saw this petite one in store and instantly knew it would be perfect for me! The hood came with a removable fur trim, I took it off though, because it became matted when wet from the rain.
I will share these boots with you next before I get onto the jumpers. I would just like to point how much I love boots: biker boots, UGG style boots, leather boots, suede boots and chunky heeled boots like these ones. I got these from Shoe Zone last year for £14.99 (bargain!), they are still available here. These are actually my second most worn pair; my most worn ones are far too scruffy to show!! I can’t walk in high-heeled shoes/boots unless the heel is chunky like these ones. I wore these mostly with leggings as they tuck into the boot nicely; they go with every outfit as well!
I started shopping in Jack Wills around 6 months ago, before then I had never stepped foot through the door. I always assumed the clothing was too expensive, so always dismissed it. But, one day when I was in town I had some time to kill; I popped into Jack Wills to get away from the rain. I’m glad I did because there happened to be a sale on! I think I purchased a couple of t-shirts- now I’m hooked! Yes, their clothing is expensive compared to some other brands, but their sale prices can not be missed. I bought this jumper a few month ago in the sale for £23. Since I bought this’Tinsbury’ jumper, they have gone back upto full price (£59.95)- you can view it here.
The next item is a jumper dress from Next. I bought this in the January sales when I went on a trip to Cambridge after Christmas this year. Next have a petite range which is ideal for me; this dress is the perfect length for me. The material is quite thin, so it’s nice to play around with layers. My favourite way to wear this is with a leather jacket, black leggings and chunky boots- shown below! I love the blush pink colour and the unique design of it! I bought it for £12, I think the original price was £30. I wore this outfit when I was going out for lunch with family.
The final item is probably my favourite! I got this jumper from Joules. I remember trying this on in store when it wasn’t on offer; I never buy anything full price, so I waited for the sales! Joules have a very good outlet on eBay by the way; they sell their discounted clothing on there! I got this jumper from their eBay shop for £20.00.I love the colour of this jumper, it is a ‘camel’ colour which goes nicely with jeans. It is oversized in style so is very comfortable to wear! It washes well as it’s not made from wool.
