Warm and snuggly.

Some people (Sue I’m looking at you) like to keep new clothes, stash them away, then surprise us all with things they bought, quite literally, ages ago.  I on the other hand want to wear my new things immediately.  They need to earn their keep as soon as they come out of the box.

Boots – Rag & Bone Newbury charcoal suede // Trousers – Zara pleather leggings // Jumper – Boden Off Duty sweater (on sale now) // Gilet – Verna gilet AllSaints (sale – all sizes now available!)

Okay my Husband asked me why I was wearing the bathroom mat – my sides were splitting – funny guy – but I LOVE my Verna gilet.  The texture adds a great dimension to an otherwise basic outfit, plus it is so soft, warm and snuggly.

Yesterday I was lazy, only because I had the luxury of working from home.  Minimal makeup and air dried hair resulted in this.

Boots – Rag & Bone grey nubuck Newbury boots (canvas version for Spring here) // Trousers – JCrew velvet toothpick jeans // Sweater – Boden Westbourne jumper (some colors just $29.40 in the sale!)

I haven’t a clue what to wear today and I’ve just driven the kids to school in pyjamas much to their horror.  To be fair they do look more like sweatpants – but I wonder is that really any better?  I may have scarred them for life.

        Of course I will – ‘heroine’ – careful I might think you’re being sarcastic 😉 xx

      I don’t know you should try it – I’ve actually exchanged mine for the S/M as I felt a bit swamped in the M/L – their knitwear always seems to fit big! I quite like it as it is a longer length – it’ll work great with heels too over a simple black dress.

      It’s a bit too wavy right now – I need some relaxant in it I think! Or some extra length to weigh it down…

    That’s all I want to do too, dress warm and snuggly. Love the long line gilet and the R&B grey Newburys. I keep asking our local Daniel Footwear to stock R&B.

    Hey how come your hair isn’t all frizzy if you left it to dry naturally. I look like a chimney brush if I do that x

      I still put some keratin balm in it – it’s magic – keeps my hair lovely and smooth – or try the B&B hair oil.

    Gorgeous gilet Joanna. Love the colour teamed with black & loving your honesty of dropping the kids off to school in your pjs….surely the only thing to do is get back into bed 😉 Jane xx

      Oh but I love yours short – but you know I have surprised myself how much I like the longer locks – I do feel quite feminine for a change – it helps given the piercings I now have:) I got a second helix over Xmas!

    Hi Joanna – I had to laugh at your comment about Sue because I am exactly the same – make-up I will crack open and use almost immediately but clothing gets stashed away for a while! I really like your ‘bathroom mat’ gilet and love those pleather leggings – I’m after some! It has to be warm and snuggly over here at this time of year! 🙂

      I would forget about it if I stashed it away! I’m bad enough at forgetting what I have hidden on the racks of my closet! My resolution is to wear more of my clothes this year – but sadly it still only has 365 days 🙂

      The pleather leggings are nice and warm – but I wish they had a bit more stretch – they have a tendency to wrinkle around the knees! I love your blog by the way – looking forward to catching up on a tonne of posts – looks like you love music as much as I do too:) xx

      It is great now I can leave it to air dry – short hair really does take more styling! My Husband can be pretty constructive too but I still tend to ignore his comments 🙂 xx

    I wondered what I’d done then! Phew – but yes I’m guilty of said crime. I still have innumerable pieces stashed away. I can’t help it. The more I like something, the less likely I am to wear it immediately.

    But your husband is hilarious. Like mine. (not). Right now, I’d love to be hibernating in something so cosy but I would need arms. I need arm coverage!

    I was just thinking of all those clothes you have and you chose to wear pyjamas. That’s the way it rolls sometimes. I would if I could get away with it too :o)

      Oh but I have lovely pjs – they are Eberjey and really lovely cotton:) At least I am sitting in the car in the dark – I wear my uggs with them too – Helen would cry 😉

      Love your blog! We have quite a few items in common like that great H&M coatigan! Not sure I could cope with all that snow but it’s raining so hard here now I can’t see out of the windows! xx

        Thank you!! It is actually raining here right now. A quick thaw before we get a bunch more snow.

        Can’t wait to see you you style “our clothes” 😉

      Thank you Michelle – I love a nice stand out piece like this – I think it will be great over a sleeveless dress too. My Newburys are a bit of a passion of mine – I like to wear them year long – but I’m enjoying wearing my OTK Stuart Weitzmans too this year! xx

    Oh I’m with you, I sometimes have the labels ripped off as soon as I get in the car! Jealous of your flash of summer colour, ready for my S/S wardrobe;)
