Dressing for Winter with Buffalo Plaid & Sorel Boots (& #Passion4Fashion Linkup)

A few posts ago i mentioned that come winter I'm a complete wimp when it comes to cold temperatures. So can you imagine how happy i am in this snuggly outfit. Its so cosy, a bit festive and i just generally want to live in it.
For years I've searched for the perfect Buffalo plaid piece but to no avail, well until this winter and my perfect fit and style shirt practically fell in to my lap.
I absolutely love wearing it, and within the week I'd worn it 3 times over, each slightly differently styled (with black jeans and then with a black faux leather skirt and back to with my trusty Levi's)
The brushed cotton fabric feels so warm and cosy for this time of year, but I also love that even though its warm, i still can dress it to make it look like I'm not hibernating for the winter. To me it brings a bit of an edgy vibe to an outfit, which i do lean towards come winter (boho in summer, rock-edgy in winter.. I use both those terms loosely of course, as we all know I have an ever changing sense of style direction)
So with my buffalo check/plaid shirt I've been pairing it with my new favourite faux Sherling coat which was a gift from my parentals. My dad actually chose it, which makes me love it all the more.

And then finished off with my Sorel boots.. These have become a complete winter staple. They're so much more comfortable and warmer than wellies, and yet are fully waterproof too. A total worthy investment

  6. The jacket is so pretty and it seems so cosy as well! I only own one plaid shirt that I got recently and I can't wait to use it in a blog post but it's been so cold here I can't get myself to wear it...

  7. Nothing like a pair of boots that are cute AND functional! I love Sorel brand. This background is absolutely gorgeous, too! xo


  8. I don't own a buffalo plaid shirt, but I've always wanted one. For some reason I have two black/white plaid shirts, and I am therefore holding off buying any more plaid shirts...

    I really like your outfit! And how special that your dad picked the jacket!

    Thanks for the link up & have a wonderful weekend!

  17. Shrunk my favourite plaid dress from ASOS so replaced it with a plaid shirt like yours from American Eagle.
