A chill in the air

7 Nov

November and December are perhaps my favourite months of the year. Ignoring the horrible cold I have, the icy conditions and the sleet that soaks right through you, it is the most wonderful time of the year. The shops are filled with Christmas goodies, it’s acceptable to have a mince pie and Starbucks is the only place for a toffee nut latte. Fresh Christmas trees line the streets of my market town ready to be purchased and planted and the first blanket of snow can be seen.

November means it’s certainly too cold just for a thin jacket and my beloved snakeskin flats are replaced by riding boots, Wellingtons and every outfit comes with a pair of earmuffs or a bobble hat. Fashion at this time of year is so cosy and warm. Everyone is bundled up, stylish leather gloves and all.

There are so many beautiful items of clothing and darling accessories out at the moment that just make me excited to walk through the snowy lanes of Nottingham. Here are my 7 favourite pieces at the moment- one treat for every day of the week!

The perfect spring cardigan.

21 Mar

With the sun shining and a clear sky, my thoughts turn to what to wear for the spring weather. I’m currently craving a cardigan which will see me through spring/summer but which will also look great when it’s colder with a long sleeved striped tee underneath. I was having a browse and came across this pretty cream cardigan from Mango. I love the knit and the length it falls at but what I love most is the slightly cropped sleeves- cute!

Wear with jeggings, some pretty flats, a soft tank and a skinny belt for a sweet weekend look.

Priced at £44.90, it’s available from the Mango Shop online or in store.
