It's not even officially winter and the temperature has already dipped well below 0˚C. If I were a proper style blogger, I'd probably sacked myself ages ago. Looking chic is secondary to staying warm. At this present moment, with gusty cold wind nearly blowing my socks off and the rapidly plummeting temperature, the Michelin man is starting to look pretty attractive. You know the saying? If you're hungry, everything tastes good? Well, the same rule applies to being cold.
I've sprayed a light waterproof coating on my wedge trainers so that I can stomp away in the puddles. I'm relying on my heavyweight coat from Gloverall, a quintessential British company who has been making their trademark duffle design with buffalo horn toggle fastening since the 50s. They're one of the rare companies that still produce and make all their clothes here in England using Italian blend wool. Boden does an incredible version for little kids at a reduced and amazing price.
Lately, I can't seem to get enough of cable knit jumpers. I've managed to find a stash of them, all 100% cotton and surprisingly fantastic quality at no more than £30. Bargain. I've managed to convert my friend, Christy to Isabel Marant clothes. And A.P.C. And Maje. And Sandro....... We were fortunate enough to nab her an Etoile Isabel Marant parka just like mine from a sample sale. Lucky girl. Never said I was a good influence to the teens and young adults.
