In the a/w’14 shows Cara, Suki and Jourdan sashayed down the catwalk in the beautiful monogrammed Burberry blanket wraps. Since then they have hit the shops by storm and now everywhere i go i see these wraps. I do love when a beautiful item gets filtered down to the High Street making them accessible and affordable for all to try, especially when it’s something i wasn’t 100% sure of. As much as they looked stunning on the super models and the likes of Olivia Palermo (who would look fabulous in a bin bag quite frankly), i just didn’t know if i could wear it and pull it off. All that i kept thinking of was “Will i look like Clint Eastwood in a spaghetti western?”
The best way to answer a question is to just go ahead and try it out, and i have to admit, at first i did feel like a bit i’d just walked off the set off ‘The Good the Bad and the Ugly’, but after a wee while i came to really like it! Wrapped around it felt comfy and warm and snuggly and then when simply draped it felt elegant. I wore this on my Birthday where I went out for lunch with hubby to our favourite local pub and i felt like it was the perfect outfit for lunch by the open fireplace.
Blanket Wrap & Navy Bag: Matalan
Turtle Neck Sweater: F&F
Boots: c/o Shoeqtiue
Necklace: one of my all time favourite Yosa necklaces; Purple Pleasures, no photos ever seem to do this beauty justice!
The gorgeous Friendship Bracelet is from Links of London, i absolutely adore it, it’s rose gold and so luxurious and pretty. My colleagues in work love Links of London and i can see why, the pieces make excellent presents with built in wow factor in every piece.
Have you tried the blanket wrap? If you have, how do you love to style yours? I would love some more inspiration!
And if you haven’t tried one, have i tempted you to give a blanket a go?
I have to say even when i’m not going out, mine is close by, just to wrap around and keep me snuggly and warm, making it a perfect winter purchase!
Ps THANK YOU to everyone who commented/tweeted/IG me with birthday wishes, you guys are like a huge extended family and i want to send you all BIG humongous hugs!
My birthday was wednesday but it’s kind of been a week long event (still on going in fact!) So i would love to write a blog post about it and share with you all next week!
30 so far is looking pretty swell!!
