Snow Style

So the snow was momentarily back with a vengeance today, luckily I still had all of my apres-ski chic clothes out and raring to go!

Hopefully the snow will melt away to reveal a lush springtime filled with lots of sunshine and flowers- A girl can dream! The S/S 13 designer collections have been taunting me with their summery goodness since last autumn, and now the shops are filling with the first of the summer drops. I've had to hide my debit card lest I go into a midi dress induced frenzy. 

Until then I guess we'll just have to make do with our huge array of knitted goods and huge scarves atleast for the next few months. I am holding out to shop the summer collections for the mean time. That is until gladiator sandals hit the shops mid-march, and then god help me.. and my bank balance.

What I wore

~

-My aviator cum shearling jacket was brought from Lipsy 2 winters ago for £75, when they were all the rage. My one is more fur than shearling, and is a slightly darker fur on the inside, but the suede exterior is the same, as are the buckles! Although its a few years old, a good chic jacket such as this a wardrobe classic.

This jumper from H&M is total savior when you just want a simple thing to throw on. Since it was an absolute steal, I just had to buy it in 4 colours. Its a really light and loose knit, which is not only great for layering in wintry weather, but will be perfect to throw over a dress in the springtime. I brought mine last season, but since it proved to be such a good seller that its back in stores in new spring shades. 

Anyone who knows me will know I live in skinny jeans, especially in the winter months when my legs are certainly staying under wraps. These are my new favorites as they're a really flattering shade and fabric, but are still trend led with the acid wash details. I can't praise Miss Selfridge enough for their amazing jeans; if you're looking for a long wearing cheap pair then it really is the place to go. They seem to contain more elastic than other places, which makes them comfortable and means they retain the skinny fit. 

A good old pair of classic Converse All Stars low (Ox in Optical white) are a must for any wardrobe. Albeit a slightly generic choice as the world and his wife has a pair, their comfy allure is just to hard to resist. They look equally great with either jeans or a casual summer dress, so they are a complete crutch for me! I've set my peepers on a pair of poppy red high tops next for the summer.


This bag is my constant companion, its the perfect size and style to just grab and go. The iconic speedy 30 is an instant wardrobe updater, no matter how plain your outfit is, this little gem will take you from boring to chic in a jiffy. Although it is a tad pricy, just think of cost per wear, and like a Liberty print scarf or Burberry Trench, it is an item that will never date.
