New In: New Look, H&M and Primark13:09
Today I thought I'd share with you a little winter shopping I did recently whilst on the hunt for a new winter coat. As you'll be able to tell I'm loving New Look's winter collection at the moment, they have some really nice pieces.
Coat, £54.99 - New Look
There are so many nice checked coats around at the moment and I have browsed many online as well as tried several on in store. Now if I'm being honest, I remember seeing this coat online and it never really caught my attention, however when I saw it in store I fell in love with it instantly. It is a lovely soft wool and so cosy, and I love the navy and green tartan for winter. If you were to get this coat though I'd definitely suggest down-sizing as it is very oversized, even in a smaller size it is quite big on me but I quite like the oversized look. Must be fairly popular though, as it seems that it is already sold out online.
Sandals, £22.99 - New Look
Sticking with the tartan theme I also bought this lovely black and white brushed wool effect skirt. I think it'll look great for winter with a turtle neck, thick tights and boots. Now I know it's a little cold for sandals but if there's one thing that was missing from my wardrobe it's a pair of simple black sandals. I like that these have a thicker strap and a chunkier heel than your typical pair of strappy black sandals. I have not had them long and have already worn them several times as they go with everything, so I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of these.
After getting over my fear of pink in this post I thought I'd a little bit of colour to my wardrobe this winter, as pastel pinks and blues are everywhere this season. I love this little fluffy jumper, with it's embellished neckline it is great for jazzing up a simple pair of jeans or trousers. I also like that it has short sleeves because I find that I can get a little too hot in long sleeved jumpers sometimes, even though I love how cosy they are when everywhere has heaters on it can be just a little too warm and uncomfortable sometimes.
Dress, £14.99 - H&M
I love this simple black and white checked dress, it is quite thin for winter but add a pair of tights and a nice big cosy cardigan it is just perfect for throwing on with little effort.
The second item I got from H&M was these faux leather trousers. The first thing that drew me to them was the colour. I'm loving this deep burgundy colour for winter and will make a nice change from black leather. As far as leather trousers go they are pretty comfy and seem pretty good quality for the price.
Boots, £15 - Primark
Finally I bought myself a new pair of boots. If I had my way, and the budget, I'd have a wardrobe full of boots. They are one of my favourite things to shop for. I love this grey suede pair from Primark, not only are they really comfy but an absolute bargain too.
What have you been buying for the winter season?
