My first year of blogging and my first venture of documenting everything I wore from sixth form uniform, collections I loved and everything from my teenage bedroom (with a few interesting fashion statements made)...

The Big Fashion Freeze


In all honesty, I find it incredibly hard dressing nicely and keeping warm when it comes to these snowy and sub arctic conditions we seem to be experiencing in London. I additionally find it especially hard after flicking through pages of gorgeous fashion blogs or magazines to see long, tall women floating around in maxi skirts and shearling jackets making the snow look like it’s simply a layer of icing sugar in their glamourous lives (even more so when I’m sitting in thousands of layers of old fashioned knitwear with flushed cheeks and messy hair)!

So, over the next few days in which the snow and ice seem ever-present I’m going to try and provide as many warm AND (relatively) stylish outfit ideas, in which you don’t have to bare your flesh or feel unfathomably frumpy and still feel cool whilst feeling snug.

Here was my outfit from today:

(Bobble hat: Topshop, Denim Shearling Jacket: Charity Shop, Burgundy Cable Knit: Charity Shop, Jeans: Topshop, Satchel: Oasis, Ox Blood/Cherry Red Dr Martens: Dr Marten)

Although prehaps not the ‘slinkiest’ of outfits, it was most definitely warm, and I like to think I combined as many of this seasons trends as I could. Also, why not add a slick of lipstick to a casual outfit? It won’t look too over the top and makes everyone feel that bit ‘prettier’ when hat hair is inevitable.
