Wool cape/Blouse; Thrifted. Gloves; Jay Jays. Booties; Unknown. Shorts; Paradisco
It's official we have come full circle. When I first started this blog just over a year ago it was just starting to get cold, we then lasted all the way through Winter, Spring and Summer together and now we're back to where we started. Bring on the beanies and knits I say! As much as I love a good little sundress my true passion really lies with winter dressing, I adore layers and matching separates and wool and all the other good things that come with dressing for colder climates. Because let's face it, the more layers you can wear at the same time, the more interesting an outfit is going to be. Take a leaf from Leandra Medine AKA The Master of Layers book and make the catchphrase 'More is Best' your new friend. But being completely honest here even though I love layers, I've never been very good at layers. I can never get the balance between 'chic and snug' and 'abominable snowman' right and always end up either freezing cold with not enough layers or barely discernible beneath a mountain of clothes. So this winter I am making it my mission to own layering, I will become its master, it will bow down before me and bring me lavish gifts.
My first attempt was this wool cape which hides a lot underneath its fluffy goodness, combined with these pleated micro shorts and some amazing multi-coloured gloves you've got a look that is worthy of the winter chill. but doesn't leave you being chased by the villagers with flaming torches. Perfect balance.
