Boyfriend Jeans and Thick Knits

Blazer: Zara (similar)
Jumper: Mango
Jeans: COS
Loafers: Zara (similar)

You can tell it's winter when your outfit pictures consist of pale skin, thick jumpers and windswept hair but being able to bundle up is one of my favourite things about this time of year. This Mango jumper has become one of my staples this season, with its loose shape and soft grey colour making it really versatile. This is a look I go to for real ease; those big boyfriend-style jeans, comfy loafers and thick jumper  acting as one big comfort blanket.

Slimline Blazer and Oversized Culottes

Blazer: Zara (similar)
Dress: Theory
Trousers: COS (similar)
Shoes: ASOS 

This time of year is really busy for me (as it is for most people). Working in ecommerce means my weeks are filled with Black Friday/Cyber Monday and Christmas, while weekends are spent getting ready for the festive period and various social activities. I'm not complaining but it is a bit non-stop, so when it comes to style I like to keep things as simple (and comfortable) as possible. 

At the moment I'm all about volume and creating new shapes, balancing big pieces like these COS trousers with slimline dresses and blazers. Paired with my new slipper-like shoes from ASOS, this outfit ticks all of my sartorial boxes.

What to Buy this Black Friday

Black Friday is back; the phenomenon that has pretty much dominated the retail calendar over the past few years in the UK. I'm not complaining - new season pieces at a discount? Great - plus it's the perfect opportunity to stock up on Christmas presents. The thing with Black Friday is it's easy to get carried away (I'll be the first to admit I've been getting Black Friday panic) and buy things just because they're on offer and you don't want to miss out. To get around this problem I've put together a curated list of wardrobe staples that will give me the best deals this year.

Chunky Knits and Kitten Heels

Jumper: Mango
Necklace: c/o Felice Dahl
Jeans: ASOS
Shoes: Mango

The kitten heel was a style I never thought I'd really buy into but this season I've been drawn to them more and more - especially when I saw this pair from Mango was only £35.99. I love the shape, the slightly elevated height and the fact that the colour adds a pop to my otherwise dark outfit. This jumper has become a new staple for me too, with a looser fit yet much-needed warmth for this time of year - plus it becomes that little bit more special when worn with this chunky gold necklace from Scandi brand Felice Dahl.

Styling Layers on Layers

Blazer: Gap
Dress: COS
Trousers: COS
Shoes: Zara 

I feel like the contents of my wardrobe are gradually getting looser and looser, and my outfits are gradually taking on more and more variations of layering. Take this outfit, consisting of a COS dress (although possibly too short to actually wear it as its original function), relaxed COS chinos, masculine wool blazer and what can only be described as outdoor slippers. I'm not complaining though, it's comfortable and warm and is essentially the next best thing to wearing pyjamas in the office.
