For the past few weeks I’ve been back home in the UK so thought you guys might like a quick outfit run down! It’s not often I wear Winter clothes these days and I had such fun styling all the layers and cosy fabrics. Our next stop is Santiago, Chile, so expect plenty more sunny outfits soon!
Layering obsessed in Paris
I absolutely love jumpsuits right now, but this one was more on the “cat suit” side so I have only managed to wear it out to nightclubs. But… it’s super comfy and great for hiding thick layered tights in cold old Europe! I had the brainwave (if I may say so myself) of layering it over a turtleneck to give a chic retro feel that was still really comfortable and effortless. I actually wore it on the plane too and it was like wearing PJs but looking super fashionable! Winning…
Grey turtleneck – £1.25 – Waggy Tails charity shop
Black jumpsuit – £4.95 – eBay
Ankle boots – £2 – Primark sale
Fluffy brights on the beach
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t crack out some bright colours! This jumper is actually DKNY and is a kind of fluffy angora feel. I thrifted it from a carboot sale mound and knew we’d be firm friends. It’s got a wide and low turtleneck that gives it that little modern twist too.
It’s hard to see in this picture but I also scored some knee high suede black boots from my favourite charity shop too. I wanted over knee but they’re super hard to find second hand right now, but these paired with black trousers give the same effect. Thrilled!

Cosy fur in London

Dusky blue in Waitrose!
When you’ve only got a few weeks to wear your Winter Wardrobe you have to bring your A Game to the supermarket too! haha. I love this dusky blue coat which I got from a big upmarket sample/carboot sale in Central London organised by the Fashion Council. I paired it with some printed trousers, and the Helen Moore faux fur scarf that I treated myself to at Christmas. I’ve literally worn it every single day….

Red printed trousers (originally H&M) – £2.99 – Crossroads thrift, America

Helen Moore faux fur scarf – £38 – House of Fraser sale
Princess style in Disney
And finally – my non stop pre-wedding honeymoon involved a little half day in Disney! Of course I had to dress the part (although apparently that’s not what people do as everyone else was just wrapped up in black coats #snore). This big ballerina skirt is actually a princess costume dress for a 6 year old but I cut open the shoulders on the lycra top to make it into a skirt. I also had short leggings on underneath the battle the freezing winter, and several pairs of tan tights. My Feyonce top was a very awesome and generous gift from one of my lovely Bridesmaids, Cathi. It’s been a serious everyday staple since I got it!
Feyonce sweatshirt – gift
Yellow Princess skirt (child’s dress) – £4 – Lewis Manning Hospice charity shop
