With the cold weather well and truly upon us, it’s time to wrap up warm in those lovely winter coats that you’ve had in the wardrobe while it’s been so unseasonably mild.

For a busy day out and about last week I wore this long grey wool coat with a faux fur collar, which was perfect for both warmth and style. I found it in a local charity shop and it was in perfect condition.
I teamed it with a light grey cotton jumper and a dark grey wool skirt. I then accessorized the outfit with a grey wool fedora, black mini grab bag, purple check scarf and black knee high boots.

Let me know what you think and I’d love to know what your top winter coats are this year.

I never thought I’d end up wearing a pussy bow blouse but I came across this beautiful ivory one whilst looking for something else (as you do!) so I thought I’d give it a try. Even better, it was half price in the sale!

It’s absolutely gorgeous, I love the soft feel of the fabric and the way the bow hangs loosely down the front. The length is perfect for either having it tucked in or leaving in out of whatever jeans or skirt I happen to be wearing at the time.
I’ve styled it with a long green suedette skirt, a black wide brimmed hat and my favourite black knee high boots for a touch of old school glamour.
I’d also wear the blouse with jeans and a blazer for a more casual look.

As usual straight after Christmas I hit the high street in the hope of getting a few bargains and would most definitely be stopping off for coffee and cake along the way.
So I wanted to wear something smart but also comfortable, just in case I ended up trying on potential purchases!
I reached for my favourite leather biker jacket with a faux fur collar and lining. Here I’ve worn it with a chunky short sleeve roll neck jumper and skinny jeans.
I’ve also added a baker boy cap for a slightly retro look.
It’s such a versatile jacket and would look equally good with a floral dress and knee high boots.

I love wearing hats at the moment, I find they can either brighten up an outfit or even change the overall look.
There are so many different styles around but I chose this berry wide brimmed felt fedora to add a splash of colour to a black and white outfit.
As it’s extremely mild for this time of year I’m wearing a check blazer with a black knee length skirt and a cotton off white roll neck top. I also wear the hat with winter coats and it looks equally as good.

I was invited to two Christmas parties recently and I had an amazing time at both events.
The first was for a local charity and held at Letchworth Hall Hotel in Hertfordshire. It was a chance to get really dressed up and put on some sparkle. I don’t usually wear colours this bright but this red lace sleeveless fit and flare dress from New Look was perfect for the occasion. I added a pair of gold high heel shoes from Dorothy Perkins.
The next event was for a dinner party at a local restaurant so I needed something a little more sophisticated. I chose this long emerald green silk jacquard print dress from Monsoon and added a pair of diamanté strappy high heels from a local boutique called Anne Maries.
For both outfits I used a gold diamanté clutch bag from another local boutique called Jules Accessories  (you can find them on instagram at @julesaccessories).
