Every year winter rumbles on around (funny that) and it was finally time to tear myself away from my beloved leather jacket and into something a little bit more practical for the season. Despite last years orange number still being very much in my good books, Zara has pulled it out the bag again this year with this beautiful double breasted grey number which I have had glued to my shoulders.
Not to diminish my love for a good jumper but probably my favourite things about winter dressing is being able to crack out a good old coat and wrap up all warm and cosy. This look really encapsulates all of my favourite styles at the moment of with the ever so practical for the ankles culottes, a good knitted jumper and obviously a good old cosy coat. With the simple accessories of a chunky black belt and small and simple bag, they nicely finish this simple yet stylish look and keep everything very comfy with my Adidas Gazelles .
Finally the Scottish weather played up to its reputation. We may have had to wait until January but eventually it snowed! From growing up in the countryside the snow was always rather bitter sweet to me. It will look lovely for about 10 minuets but probably end up leaving you stranded in the middle of nowhere for days on end with just the sheep for company. So controversial statement alert but I don’t really like the snow. But since moving into a city centre, being able to walk through the beautiful Glasgow Westend with the snow falling all around you and crunching under you Doc Martens, you can’t help but like it a teeny tiny bit.
Obviously with it snowing warm clothes were a must, being the best excuse to wear my biggest scarf and bobble hat! Now I may be known for wearing a large scarf from time to time however I think this one must be the most blanket-esk one yet. I love this bright orange and blue tartan scarf from Zara and it was the perfect way to stay cosy and keep the snow at bay. It also brilliantly brightened up the rest of my all black along with my snuggly bobble hat.
Outerwear wise there was no big puffa jacket in sight just this simple black cord jacket. Cord isn’t usually a fabric I would go for with it just reminded me of my Granddad’s trousers, however in this jet black colour with the lovely soft sheep skin esk lining (making it surprisingly warm) it has made it to one of favourite items in my wardrobe .
As someone who has already become a victim to the snow with my bum knowing a certain path far too well, Doc Martens may not have proved my perfect Scottish weather shoes in terms of grippy-ness but they did keep the frostbite at bay.
I know you can barely see it but I do have a give a mention to this black denim shirt dress ( I know, another) with it being the one item I can’t stop wearing right now. Ever since buying it I have had to ration myself wearing it otherwise it would be on my person at all times.
