Latest Thrifted Winter Outfits

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!

Blue angora jumper top – £0.50 – Carboot sale, Upton

Black jodhpurs – £5 – Primark

Black suede boots – £2 – Waggy Tails charity shop, Poole

Faux Chanel – £15 – Thailand

Our adorable rescue dog – Paws2Rescue – highly recommended!

Cosy fur in London

I spent a weekend in London and it was absolutely FREEZING! Definitely called for some snug fabrics. You can see a ton of photos of this outfit on the shoot I did with Joy Ogude but for now here’s a snapshot…

Faux fur waistcoat – £10 – Oslo flea market

Grey turtleneck – £1 – Waggy Tails charity shop, Poole

Black cut jeans – £3 – carboot sale, Poole

White trainers – £22 – Sports Direct

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….

Blue mohair style coat (originally warehouse) – £5 – Fashion Carboot Sale

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

Faux Chanel – £15 – Thailand

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!

Paris!! The city of love…. And Instagrams Of course I had to dress as a princess for Disney

    I would NEVER have thought to cut opena childs dress like that! Very cool.

    I think I need to start setting myself a £5 limit for charity shops again, theyve all gone up in price but I still love the thrill of finding yourself a right bargain!

      Yeah I find the limit really helps a lot!! But of course I do break it sometimes 😉 All the money is going to charity after all #excusesexcuses
