Baby, it's cold outside...

I don't think it'll come as a surprise to anyone when I say that I'm not just a beauty junkie I have other cravings too. It almost goes without saying that I'm completely addicted to fashion, clothes, shoes, bags, accessories and jewellery as well - I guess you could say that I'm an equal opportunist when it comes to beauty and fashion. For a while now I have been thinking about introducing more fashion related posts every now and then, and when I asked you guys about it on Twitter I got some very nice and encouraging messages back from many of you. So this is a first for me, an outfit post and I hope you'll enjoy it!
 
 Jacket: Sainsbury's // Sequin jumper & Shorts & Shoe boots: H&M // Fleece leggings: Primark // Baker Boy hat & Owl necklace: Accessorize // Gem fingerless gloves: Dorothy Perkins // Bag: Jimmy Choo

"Baby it's cold outside...." yes, but it's still not that cold so if you wear a warm enough jumper, then even at the beginning of December you only need a thin parka or barbour type jacket like this khaki colored belted one from Sainsburys - a right bargain, and perfect for those not so sure days since it can easily be folded up into nothing and put away in a bag. Under the jacket I'm wearing a long sleeved white knitted harlequin patterned jumper with scattered white sequins. It's a great everyday top with a little extra something, and I think it works really well to pair it down with these checked shorts in cinnamon brown, black and taupe and I've added my cute owl necklace for a bit of personality. To keep warm I've got the best black cozy leggings ever since they are fleeced on the inside - a must have if you want to show off your pins in winter time. The shoe boots are so comfy because of the chunky high heel, and they work both for casual and more dressy styles. I'm keeping warm with my beloved knitted Baker Boy hat, cute cream colored fingerless gloves with little sparkles on them - perfect for days when you're out taking photographs. Since I usually have my camera with me everywhere, it fits perfectly with everything else I need in my black Jimmy Choo bag, an amazing gift from Him Indoors on our first wedding anniversary.  

As you know, your comments are really important to me, so please let know what you think of this first attempt at an outfit post, and if this is something you would like to see more of in 2014. Have a wonderful day everyone! Xx

  23. I love your outfit - it is so cute. Your photography is stunning as well. I wanted to but a necklace like the one you are wearing when I shopped yesterday, but it was so high and I'm in a wheelchair. I bought the lower things instead ;-)
