Who Let The Dogs Out?


Now that Christmas is over, I can get back to writing about fluffy inconsequential things like my outfits.

I love dogs. One of my favourite things is going for a nice dog walk. Feeling the dog’s excitement as it tugs on the lead, the palpable sense of euphoria as you release it, watching it run around in joy. Love it.

The only problem is I don’t have a dog.

Never one to let circumstance get in the way, I tagged along with some friends. And I thought I’d kill two birds with one stone and do a little outfit post too.

This patterned sweater is from Gap. It’s not explicitly a Christmas jumper but has something of a festive pattern to it, meaning that I can wear it all year long . Because I cannot be wasting money on jumpers that only be worn one month a year. That’s just a bad investment.

I’ve gone for some dark indigo jeans from Topman and I borrowed those boots from my friend.

This is my favourite coat. I got it from H&M a couple years ago. It’s got leather lapels but I’ve got a detachable faux fur collar which you can attach to any coat. I find that things in life are generally made better by draping them in fur. Like a dog for example.

Then I’ve topped it off with this cable-knit hat. A navy blue flecked wool cherry on top.

Woof woof.



Baby, It’s Cold Outside


So I managed to leave all my coats at my mother’s house over summer, which in hindsight, no longer seems like a great idea seeing that it’s now December and that winter has no chill. Or rather, has too much chill.

Anyway, I went home last week to pick up some warmer clothes, and also to see my family and stuff. Revelling in my newfound warmth, I thought I’d put an outfit together.

I’ve gone for a rather simple, understated look, which is fine because I have nothing to prove to you people. That said, I’ve tried spice it up a little with some interesting patterns and textures. You’re welcome.

This cream cableknit jumper has a bit of a preppy look to it, which is something I’m not always able to pull off, so I quite like this one. I got it from Gap last Christmas and when I wear it, people always ask me if I’m just off to play some cricket. The answer is always no.

The coat is from Primark, which I got in the Christmas sales last year. I really smashed it last Christmas, to be honest.

I’ve gone for some dark jeans, once again, keeping it simple. And finally I chucked on these old sneakers which I really like but are absolutely falling to pieces, not unlike my life.
