It really felt like the first day of winter today, which gave me the opportunity to wrap up warm.
I’m a big fan of lots of things – being warm is one of them, another is being comfortable and another is wearing “cheat” items – namely those pieces that look stylish and polished but which feel like the most comfortable PJs that I own.
When I’m styling clients I often say that the ideal is to feel as though you are wearing a onesie, whilst looking as if you are wearing something (anything!) much more stylish and sophisticated. It’s definitely something to aim towards.
Here I’m wearing the Whistles Annabel jacket (£155) bought with the Grazia 25% discount. Our Selfridges didn’t have it in the navy (shown below) which is probably just as well really as I could quite happily own both colours. It’s boucle, which makes it soft, very warm and because of it’s nice shape and styling, one of those cheat items I was talking about. Given the choice I would happily wear my fleecy dressing gown jacket for the entire winter – and behind closed doors frequently do – but it’s not really acceptable in public, so this jacket is a much more acceptable alternative.
Underneath the jacket I wore an All Saints cashmere jumper, Whistles camo print scarf, Primark coated skinny jeans, Zara boots and Mulberry handbag. Cold weather – I’m ready and waiting for you!
