I refuse to consign my skirts and dresses to the back of the wardrobe every autumn and winter. I mean, it’s bad enough that the majority of the year is pretty chilly here in the UK. But to be stuck in jeans and trousers would be depressing as hell.
Every year I pull out my trusty opaque tights and wrap up as best I can for the dropping temperatures.
I will not succumb to the thermals just yet!
And yes, it is possible to feel cute and snuggly this time of year.
This is what I call my lunchtime snuggle outfit and it happens to be head to toe Great Plains. I feel relatively chic in a faux suede skirt and polo neck top, and then I just chuck on this gloriously longline cardigan for extra cosiness from their knitwear collection.
Of course, it helps that the pattern, fair isle, never goes out of style. It is all about embracing the season and welcoming the cold.
Because without the cold we wouldn’t get to enjoy cosy cardigans, right?!
I have been perusing my own list of 100 self-care ideas this week as I well and truly start to feel the winter blues heading this way. It’s so important to have an awareness of how the seasons can affect our moods.
I mean, I’m super excited for Christmas and all the festivities that came with it. But I do find the short days and the cold can get to me if I’m not too careful.
So far I have been indulging in copious amounts of hot beverages, listening to music and bingeing on Netflix. Plus, I’ve been reaching out to friends and family to keep me company. I’m fighting the urge to hibernate too much by staying connected with all the awesome people I know.
What I’m wearing:
- Cardigan – c/o Great Plains
- Top – c/o Great Plains
- Skirt – c/o Great Plains
- Tights – M&S
- Boots – Rocketdog
- Necklace – Topshop
