Style: winter prep update

It shouldn’t come as a great shock, but this was a pretty easy challenge week. Winter prep was a very basic attempt at getting ready for the upcoming cold weather, but I did enjoy it.

Culottes, cropped jumper, star boots. I felt amazing and slightly confused in this outfit. Crop tops always have this effect on me, especially cropped jumpers. Anyone who purposefully designs a woolly garment not to be long enough needs to have a little chat with themselves. Having said that, the hem of the jumper and waistline of the culottes worked pretty well together so I can’t complain too much, and who could ever be sad when they have glittery stars on their heels?


Fluffy jumper, stretchy pencil skirt, boots. This jumper is the softest thing I have ever worn. I think pairing it with the skirt and boots did help dress it up enough to not look quite as cosy as I felt. Even if the checks are a little bit over stretched.


Spotty wide leg trousers, jeweled top, leopard shoes. I accidentally missed the mark on professional here. Far too much baggy going on. I was blooming comfortable though.


Green trousers, cream jumper, metallic socks, star boots. This has to be my favourite outfit of the week. So comfortable and I’m not usually one for visible socks, but it did make me feel a little bit cool.


Overall, I think I did manage to stick with the whole premise of the challenge. At no point during the week was a cold, and I mainly managed to keep a professional(ish) feel to every outfit. Professional enough for my workplace anyway.

I can’t quite believe it’s nearly the end of the year already (how old and British do I sound?) but I think this is a pretty good start to the cold season. As much as I’d love to, I don’t think I can really wear solely jumpers for the next three months. My mini challenge for this coming up week is to get my layers on. Rather than big fluffy jumpers, I want to try and get creative with building up layers so that I’m still warm all day every day but not like I’m trying to recreate Joey from Friends wearing all the clothes.

Stay tuned!

Much love!
