Honest Chat – Life Is Hard

Evening you lot, I’ve been wanting to write a post along these lines for a while now, but was a little unsure of how to do it and get it right.

The blogging/Instagram world is an overwhelmingly positive place. People support each other, follow each other’s lives, celebrate the highs and commiserate the lows, together (for the most part). Yet comparison is often inevitable, and when your feed is full of successful, beautiful people loving life, it can become a strange place when your own circumstances and feelings fail to mirror those staring back at you from your screen.

Winter is Coming

Winter is basically upon us. The first days of November have certainly felt icy to the touch. Drenching rain and icy winds that seem to attack every ounce of bare flesh it can find. Brrr. With that though, comes warm hugs in the form of chunky knitwear and failsafe boots.  This outfit is my take on dressing to suit the season.

Firstly, lets address the knitwear. Erm Hello jumper of dreams. This number from a great online site called He Official is perfect for keeping that wind at bay. The wide roll neck lets you feel wrapped up warm without feeling too tight and oppressive, its suuuper soft and the fit – its a one size only item – means its oversized enough for you to reach for it in the event of having to actually go outside – yuck – but fitting enough that it can be worn in a multitude of ways.

I’ve styled it with my Black plisse Culottes from Boohoo which I love as they can be styled up or down – for me its usually down – with minimal effort and they don’t fall too short, which is perfect when trying to keep the cold out.

I’ve adorned my feet with these, frankly, fabulous boots from Ego. They’re a dark brown velvet with this floral/brocade pattern covering the entire body and heel of the shoe. They have a small but chunky heel which is perfect for when you want to add something extra to a pretty simple outfit such as this, without you having to worry about going headfirst into the pavement thanks to all those soggy leaves!

To finish off I added my Monki cat eye sunglasses from Asos– as it was in fact sunny – if only for about 5 minutes. Sunglasses are a great way to style up a simple outfit and its something I’ve been trying to do more of lately  – to really finish off a look.

So there you have it, a pretty simple outfit perfect for getting used to these oh so chilly winter days. Add colour and flare to a plain/monochrome outfit and bam, You. Are. Set.
