Winter feels like life is permanently on pause. Or maybe its just me. Nothing really happens at this time of year. We’re in a perpetual state of looking forward. Or again, maybe thats just me. I spend half my time daydreaming of beach escapes or riding an elephant in Bhutan and the rest of time, I can’t even muster up the energy to get myself off the sofa from in front of the fire. So surfing my trusty stash of online favourites is an over-regular activity, if you can call finger tapping a keyboard that.
I’ve never been one for wearing socks – only desperate times call for socks which isn’t that often. I’d rather wear a beautiful pair of shoes than a pair of socks and boots, but I’ve never been the most practically minded. It makes so much more sense to throw on a huge teddy-bear coat like this camel version from Atterley Road. Its belted, which is always a requirement for me – it makes for the most nonchalant look, especially when paired up with this AG Skirt which embodies all amounts of 60’s perfection imaginable. Throw on a crisp and classic striped shirt (this one is a staple – the stripes are just right) and these truly epic suede lace up flats to top it all off, and there you have the most sensible transitional outfit I can muster.
Now its time to defrost my credit card in the back of the freezer…
