The cold spell has reached us here in the UK and it has been as low as -5 degrees Celsius. I’ll be completely honest with you and say, when temperatures get this low all i want to do is wear my dressing gown all day, rap myself in my duvet and hibernate. But life demands that we dress each day and doesn’t deem my dressing gown as getting dressed. To say I’m a wimp in cold weather would be an understatement, and skimpy clothes are pretty much retired until warmer weather returns (or for special events only, like the wedding I’ll be attending tomorrow!).
So it’s knitwear all round for me.
Knitwear can however still be dressed up just as much as a dress. I bought this cold shoulder knit for my Winter Capsule as i love how it adds just a little bit of ‘fancy’ to an other wise jumper and jeans outfit. A week in and i’ve already worn this jumper 3 times as its perfect for those occasions when you do want to make an effort, but still need something cosy( and no if you’re wondering my shoulders didn’t get cold.. surprisingly!)
I had lunch plans last Sunday so i threw on my jeans, the cold shoulder jumper and jazzed it up with some red heels. It was perfect for a casual but lovely lunch date. Later i switched back in to my cosy boots (I actually keep them in my car)for warmth and comfort, but it was nice to feel smart and still warm whilst I was out.
Come winter do you still dress fashionably or for warmth?
