Autumn/Winter Wardrobe Updates
I've always much preferred winter clothing over summer fashion, I just love cosy jumpers and opaque black tights. Try as I might, I can never bring myself to get overly excited about summer dresses and short shorts – I don't have the best relationship with my legs and having them on display usually makes me feel pretty uncomfortable. Hand me a soft knit and thick scarf, and I'm happy.
I had a birthday relatively recently, so I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to boost my Autumn/Winter wardrobe a little bit. Some of these things I bought with birthday money and others I've already had for a little while (you can probably tell from how worn the shoes look!).
Jumpers are a staple for me, I'm a very cold kind of person and layer up as much as I can! I picked up the monochrome one in New Look after eyeing it up for a couple of days. The Christmas jumper is from eBay – I know it's a bit early, but I've never had one before and I'll probably wait until December until I wear it out.
I've bought a pair of decent wool gloves this year from H&M because I usually buy cheap pairs from Primark that are full of holes before I've worn them three times! The grey navajo print scarf is also from H&M. It's a massive scarf so I'm saving it for when it gets really cold. The tartan scarf is a bit of a cheat because I picked it up in Topman a year ago, but I've been wearing it religiously so I thought I'd include it anyway.
The leather ankle boots are from Office and are surprisingly comfortable, I'm used to getting blisters from wearing new shoes in, but I've had very happy feet with this pair! I bought the brogues from ASOS after seeing them on Megs' blog – they look really lovely with skirts and dresses.
My most extravagant purchase was this coat from Zara. I couldn't really get a decent photo of it, but the website provides a much better idea of what it looks like. The furry lining is a dream and it will be perfect for when I go to Paris and Disneyland in a couple of weeks, I'm expecting it to be very chilly!
Lastly, I thought I'd show a few of the nail colours I've been wearing recently. I didn't wear glitter nail polish in the summer at all, so it's been fun digging them back out (it's just a shame they're such a pain to remove!).
Have you made any seasonal wardrobe updates recently?
