This black gilet caught my eye in an advert for Next in a few magazines i’ve bought this last month. Infact the whole outfit is inspired(copied) straight off the advert. Sometimes i just can’t help but copy-cat a good outfit. And this one was so comfy and warm and snuggly I’m so glad i did. Plus the purchase of the gilet has given me lots and lots of outfit inspiration for the coming months.
Before buying a gilet I did wonder how practical it would really be, i mean, it’s got no sleeves, won’t i be cold?
But in reality, when i’m running from car to shops (who have their heating on super high!!) it turns out to be the perfect layering piece. When I wear a coat and a thick sweater, it can often induce a hot flush when you’re diving in and out of the shops who have their heaters on full thrust. Gilets seem to be the answer! Warm but not sweat-fest! Perfect if you ask me. So in answer to my own question, yes Gilets are useful and practical.. perhaps just not when it’s raining;)
Do you own a gilet? And have you found it useful?
PS please excuse my rather bloated tummy in this clingy skirt.. i had just over indulged in a lethal Mcdonalds.. and seeing as i usually don’t binge eat fast food or eat bread, my stomach momentarily appreciated it aaannd then decided to bloat to twice the size.. lesson learnt.
Don’t eat rubbish food whilst wearing a clingy skirt, LOL! (but for that moment, it was totally worth it;)
After loosing 3 stone i am quite the regulated healthy eater, but sometimes, on those long rough weeks (like this one has been) Junk food is just what you need.
