My Winter Uniform (That Isn't Jeans...)






Hands up if you have a bit of a bad habit of sticking to wearing jeans and jumpers in the winter? Yes, I'm right there with you. Jeans, jumper, ankle boots and a coat - and that's how you'll usually see me until Spring time (where most likely I'll remove the jumper and wear the exact same formula but a T-shirt instead) But this year I've been trying to rely less on that and challenge myself to wearing other things that are stylish enough to make me feel my sassiest, but still comfortable. And I've found myself coming back to over the knee boots and jumper dresses.

Confession: in these baltic British winter conditions, I'll most likely wear tights as well (and a coat!!) But I'm happy to brave the outfit without tights just for the shot and to show off these sassy I Saw It First over the knee boots best. They're from the Cindy Kimberley collection. Does the name ring a bell? She may be better known on the gram as @wolfycindy aka the most gorgeous woman on this planet. Sadly, the boots didn't transform me into her, but they did inject a bit of added sass with the lace-up side details.





Then of course is the jumper dress. I have a lot of time for the person who first thought they'd create a hybrid between the sartorial safety blanket of a cosy jumper and the relatively flimsy femininity of a dress. What we have as a result is a winter wardrobe stalwart that looks stylish, feels cosy, and thanks to its usually oversized nature is perfect for layering over hidden thermals on those cold days AND hiding the fact we may have put on a few additional pounds (it is Christmas time after all guys!) This one comes in a whole host of colours, and with a price tag so affordable you can buy one for almost every day of the week.





See, I did say it's become my winter uniform!
