Weekly Wardrobe – Dressing for out in the cold!

On Saturday I went to watch the Reindeer parade through Wells High Street, and it was just as cold as I thought it would be! The sun was shining though, so it was a really nice day for it and so many people turned out to watch. There was also carol singing and market stalls, and mistletoe for sale, and lovely Christmassy things like that – if you’d like to see it, please look at my Vlogmas Day 4 video on You Tube! Anyway, my outfit was based around the fact that I can’t seem to wear my red coat with my hat, without the hat sliding up to the top of my head and looking ridiculous. Does this happen to anyone else?
So, as the icy wind meant that a hat was essential for me, I decided to wear my shawl instead…..

The shawl is from Joe Browns (a few years ago) and you’ve probably seen it in other Weekly Wardrobe posts by now. It’s very cosy – I love the softly padded raised collar, so I didn’t need a scarf as well.

My dark green wooly hat I’ve had for years and as there’s no label, I’m afraid I can’t tell you where it’s from. I love the little peak though and I’m looking out for another one like it because there’s a bit of plastic poking out of this one!

I didn’t have to worry about bulkiness under a coat, so this meant that I could wear one of my favourite cardigans – this blue one with the ruffles at the bum. I bought this from Next a couple of years ago and I love it! I wish it had buttons though – I usually find a brooch or pin of some kind to fasten it at the front. I love the ruffle trend, but it doesn’t usually suit me. Anything that looks a bit like a bustle though and I’m loving it!

I wore a basic brown top underneath from H & M. It’s quite a tight one, and stretchy, so I didn’t have to worry about it riding up and revealing a cold belly whenever I lifted up my arms!

The grey soft cord skirt was an ebay purchase and was originally from La Redoute catalogue with the label Edeis. I love the grey plaid print frill poking out at the bottom.

I bought the navy leggings on Friday at a shop called Flock, in Bath. They are 25% cashmere so are really soft and warm. I need more leggings like this in my life. (I already owned a black pair, and I bought a dark red pair at the same time.) If you’re in the area, they are doing a 2 for £25 offer at the moment. (Usually £15 each.) £10 is usually my limit on leggings, but these are so nice, and I wear leggings so often, I thought it was worth it.

My brown suede ankle boots are the same Clarks ones you’ve now seen many times in these Weekly Wardrobe posts. They’re gradually looking more and more in need of a clean each week!

Styling the Spring/Summer 2018 trends: Pink
June 18, 2018
I have several items in my wardrobe of the dusky blush pink variety; but not so many of the brighter and pastel shades of pink that are on trend this season. I’ll have to be honest, is isn’t a shade that I think suits me very much, but this dress was so lovely, I wasn’t going to pass it by due to the colour! Some of these photos show how I styled it last summer, and some are from cooler days this spring, so they give you a couple of different ideas for how to style a pink dress….

We’ve had a real mix of weather lately haven’t we?! I’m actually across the pond in Connecticut right now, but I think it’s fairly similar to the UK – lovely and sunny one day, and then cold and grey the next. This outfit would have been perfect the day before we took the photos! However it was ten degrees cooler when the weekend rolled around and I have to be honest, my bare legs were a little chilly! Anyway, this is a great way to layer for changeable weather, but maybe pack a pair of skin-coloured tights too!…
Weekly Wardrobe – purple & teal
September 12, 2016
This month is pretty much all about my daughter’s eighteenth birthday. At the weekend, we travelled back to our home town of Tonbridge in Kent to stay with my parents and see all the family to celebrate. I dithered for ages about what to wear, but in the end, decided on this purple and teal outfit. Now I’ve put these colours together, I’m deliberately going to seek them out again as I think they look fabulous together, and quite nice for this transitioning time of year too….
