This kind of outfit is what I’d call my winter wardrobe staple: Jeans, ankle boots, knitwear and of course my beloved Zara Acne-style jacket (I literally think I’ve worn it every day this winter!) Is it a bit boring? Maybe… But is it comfy? Absolutely yes. When it gets cold at this time, I really do become all about comfort. After Christmas I pretty much expect Spring to start straight away and I always find myself slightly surprised when it doesn’t. If anything, it’s been colder since January than it was before Christmas! I’ve been living in layers and cosy knits and to be honest I don’t even feel bad about it. Hopefully this staple look is classic rather than dull. And at least living in these kind of outfits every day makes me feel slightly less guilty about owning so many different varieties of grey knitwear and black boots!
This combo is my current fave. The oversized roll neck jumper is from Replay via Get the Label and it’s seriously warm! I love the boxy, baggy shape and the cosy mohair-wool blend. These boots, too, are my current faves and a new addition to my wardrobe from Daniel Footwear. They’re real leather and super comfy. I practically live in Black ankle boots and this pair goes with just about everything! The other new thing I can’t live without right now though is this Knomo bag. Being able to work from anywhere is great, but it does mean that you basically have to carry your life around with you! I’m forever lugging around my macbook, camera and a variety of stationery, as well as my makeup bag and other essentials. More often than not, I’ll have my yoga kit with me too in case I want to pop to a class while I’m out and about in London. Basically, I need as big a bag as possible to carry it all around with me easily! Before this Knomo beauty landed in my postbox, I was walking around like a bag lady with handbags and tote bags galore to stuff all my belongings in. Having one bag that fits it all is such a saviour! This Knomo bag (The Maddox) is beautiful too which makes it even better. It’s lovely soft leather and has got all sorts of compartments and pockets to stash your stuff in. Their collection is made especially to fit your technology in, so it’s the perfect size for my macbook and has a special compartment with protective padding, not to mention RFID blocking lining to protect your personal documents! Pretty clever for such a pretty bag! It’s a classic design and again goes with anything so it’s the perfect tote for me to grab when I’m working on the go!
