Winter Wishing

Winter Wishing

The temperature in the UK has dramatically dropped in the last couple of weeks and this has spurred me to start thinking about updating my Winter wardrobe.  This quite excites me and softens the blow of knowing that I'm going to be constantly freezing for the next 6 months at least! 

I have an overwhelming desire at the moment to really strip down last year's Winter clothes and buy a few key pieces that I can mix and match along with some good quality accessories (scarfs, gloves and boots in particular!). I feel a big eBay selling session coming on!! 

I've put together a little list of the things I'm planning on buying and thought I'd share them with you all for a bit of wardrobe inspiration!  AllSaints is definitely going to be my 'go-to' this Winter! 

Helmut Lang sweatshirt
£145 - nordstrom.com
I really should have bought this last year when it was more readily available, a casual jacket that I'm visioning wearing to walk the dog with a big chunky scarf, skinny black jeans and trainers. 

AllSaints sweater
£160 - allsaints.com
I love the zip detailing on this and I'm picturing wearing it with my new Zara faux leather jeans and boots. 

AllSaints sweater
I love the neck on this jumper and again, I would imagine this with skinny black jeans and my Rag & Bone boots. 

AllSaints sweater
I'm determined this year to wear some paler colours on those sunny Winter days and think this would look perfect with white jeans and some pale coloured suede booties, and a grey coat perhaps?

ASOS white shirt
£24 - asos.com
I'm in desperate need of a boyfriend style shirt to wear with jeans and chunky cardigans. 

Zara coat
£84 - zara.com
I bought a black version and camel version of this style of coat last year and feel a grey one this year would be a useful addition. 

Stuart weitzman boots
I'm too old to get away with wearing this style of boot with a skirt, however I'm picturing them with black skinny jeans, a jumper and my Rag & Bone hat! 

Sophie Hulme leather purse
£475 - farfetch.com
I've been coveting this bag so badly since spotting it in Dubai last month.  I need it!! :) 

AllSaints accessory
£470 - allsaints.com
I saw Sandra wearing a similar jacket in a recent blog post and fell in love with it! 

Cashmere scarve
£92 - cosstores.com
I have this in black and grey already and they're so soft that I feel like I need the beige one to complete the set! 

Whistles black glove
I bought some leather gloves from ASOS last year that fell apart so this year I'm investing in some good ones!! 



  1. LOVE your picks! I have a similar crisis/stripping back thing going on just now. Heaven knows, I've even started using the words, 'capsule wardrobe.' Those boots are to die for though. I know I've only been in the UAE for a few weeks, but I'm already missing the Winter clothing. *must not complain*

    1. Awww thanks! :) I'm being so ruthless at the moment...capsule wardrobe is definitely my new thang! haha

      That's the ONLY thing I think I'd miss if I lived in Dubai! Hope you're settling in. I'm planning a trip maybe in January time....watch this space!

  2. Wonderful pieces, we've got a few turtleneck knit jumpers that are so similar (one black, one tan/camel colour) that looks right up your street!

    1. Thanks Emily :) I might be in the market for a nice black one! I'll have to pop in next time I'm in town....maybe this weekend!
