As the temperature drops, the days get shorter and the mornings get so much harder to handle, I personally find it very difficult to make myself look half decent… never mind putting a killer outfit together.
Every time my 6.30am alarm went off through winter last year, I found it nearly impossible to do anything other than chuck on a pair of stretchy pants, a thick jumper and the most ugly and comfortable shoes I could find. It was rare that I would even bother with make-up and I would usually just scrape my hair up into a scruffy bun. I know what you’re thinking, a sexy look right? No. Definitely not.
I had never really been the type of person who would just roll out of bed and throw on the first thing I could find but after leaving uni and beginning my life as a working adult, sadly, style was no longer a priority.
However, now that I am beginning to adapt to this lifestyle change I have decided to make more of an effort through winter this year. I know that a lot of people would think, why even bother? Is it worth it? Well, I have to say for me it is. When I am wearing an outfit I adore it makes me feel so much happier and even a little bit sassy, which gives me the confidence to tackle any problems the day throws at me. The power of a good outfit is very strong.

It can be difficult to find the balance between keeping warm and stylish through the colder seasons but I have found the best way to tackle this challenge is to purchase a beautiful faux fur coat. When I stumbled across this little number I am sporting in these pictures, I knew I needed it in my life. This statement coat is a perfect example of how I dream of clothes, I just couldn’t stop thinking about it. The subtle sage colour is so dreamy and it is super soft and cozy (not to mention very warm). After several days of questioning whether I could justify ANOTHER new purchase I decided to just go for it. I knew I would regret it if I didn’t. This item will immediately jazz up any outfit and keep you toasty during winter.
I decided to pair this beauty with a simple black jersey jumpsuit. This is a very comfortable item that you can pretty much wear with anything and it basically feels like you are wearing a giant legging (AW YEAH). The mesh top gives the impression that you have made an effort but in reality, you have not.
Despite wearing such a flashy coat I didn’t stop there. I also wore it with these stunning red leopard print heels, which are just incredible and will definitely make you feel like you can take on the world. I put it together with fishnet ankle socks to make the outfit pop even more and I also accessorised this look with some large silver hoop earrings (which always make me feel badass) and my go-to black bag.
This outfit is what dreams are made of (or at least mine) and the fact that it will keep you warm is an added bonus. I can’t wait to show off all of my wonderful winter wardrobe this year. WHO’S WITH ME?
