"Boots, Jeans, Jumpers.......

shirts, tops, a black bag and anything wintery. Jeans must be skinny, preferably a more expensive brand that will last longer than the Tesco/New Look ones I end up buying loads of."

So that was the brief I was given by a reader. 34 years old and a size 8/10. I love choosing clothes for younger little people, but I have also taken the opportunity to add in some extra pieces and to encompass the floral trend with the jumper and the sweatshirt trend with a funky piece on sale from Jaeger. Both can be layered over a classic white shirt to give an extra dimension to the look. The designer jeans at a high street price have been fulfilled courtesy of The Outnet and I have chosen a suede effect bag which doesn't scream "cheap" as much as a PVC bag.  The faux leather trousers are a steal from Asos and will work for both day with tan wedge ankle boots and evening with the orange court shoes and leopard silk shirt. All the tops work with all the bottoms and the footwear can be mixed and matched to either dress up or dress down the outfits depending on the occasion.


Warehouse Floral Jumper £45 James Jeans were £145 now £75.40 at The Outnet. Sparrow Black Patent Boots £99.95 Moda In Pelle. Suede Slouch Bag £45 Oasis. Orange Court Shoes £95 Kurt Geiger. Animal Print Silk Shirt £55 Oasis. Vivienne Westwood for Lee faux leather jeans were £145 now £59 at Asos. Jaeger Leopard Face Sweat Was £60 now £45. Tan Wedge Boots £99.95 Moda In Pelle.

How big is your winter wishlist?

  2. It's certainly true that it makes sense to spend more on good quality jeans which look better for longer! All the items you have chosen will work well together to create a variety of looks. My winter wishlist gets longer by the day - I must stop buying magazines!

  3. Cow boy boots, they accommodate my bunions and are just the right height to compensate for my age related lordosis, (things that 34 year olds don't have to worry about!)

  10. Like your picks! As for a wish list, have just bought the M&S berry "ankle grazer" jeggings. My wish list is to now build a few stylish winter outfits based on these! They're fab!
