Winter Wardrobe Staples

Autumn/Winter is definitely my favourite time to shop for. Cosy jumpers and skirts to wear with tights are just my life. Recently, I have been trying to smarten up my image, trying to wear more skirts during the day rather than on very special occasions and trying to look less like a student who has just rolled out of bed. - Does this mean that I am getting old! 

So, I recently bought an A Line corduroy skirt. Now Corduroy has always reminded me of my childhood as I had pair of pink corduroy trousers and one of those baker boy hats - yes, I know you remember them. I'm finding more and more outfits to make with this skirt, and I am absolutely loving it. My usual outfit is either a striped jumper or a plain turtleneck.

The Tartan scarf has been in my wardrobe since the beginning of October and I love it. Mine is only from Primark, but I get so many comments on it. However, I find that the Primark ones aren't as long as I wish they would be, but you win some you loose some.

I also picked up a coat very similar to this one from H&M last weekend for... wait for it.... £10. TEN POUNDS, how ridiculous! (I'm thinking about trying to do a fashion post with it, but we'll see!). I couldn't find the exact one online, but I don't think I have ever been so happy in the sales section of a shop before!

Shoe wise, I am loving Chelsea boots. I got a pair for Christmas and they just make ever outfit a little bit more put together. They are so comfortable and east as I can't be dealing with laces in the morning! These are great with skirts and skinny jeans which is just perfect. And for the days where I am feeling a little bit more relaxed, I go for my trusty Converse which definitely do not look as white any more!

What are some of your winter wardrobe staples? 




  1. A coat for £10 is such a major bargain!! I absolutely love wrapping up in a tartan scarf in winter such a classic.

  2. Love all of these! I have those white converse too and I have worn them constantly. Mine aren't white anymore either lol

  3. Lovely staples! I'm really into turtle necks at the moment & striped tops will always be one of my favourites!
