Winter Fashion Buys

It’s been a while since I shared some fashion content and although i’m not about to get in front of my tripod in this freezing weather to share some outfit shots, I do want to share a few recent purchases that i’ve added into my winter wardrobe that i’ve been getting so much wear out of over the past few weeks!

When it comes to dressing I have and always will be fairly casual and i’m very lucky that with my job I can wear trainers and jeans if I please, but there are days where I do make a little more of an effort with my appearance. Recently i’ve been shopping quite a bit in Primark as I just love their value for money but i’ve also added a few staples into my wardrobe from Topshop of who i’ve shopped at on and off for years, but I do find their quality to be amazing even if they are a little pricey.

My favourite purchase of late has been this Topshop Zebra Mix Jumper (£39) which of course has to be sold out online, but I think it’ll still be available in store. I first saw Lily Melrose wearing this but it wasn’t until I saw it in person that I knew I just had to have it! I’ve been loving anything leopard print recently and I really liked the monochrome look to this jumper. It’s such a snuggly jumper and i’ve been pairing this with a simple black pair of jeans and either my vans for a casual look, or a pair of black boots for a slightly more dressy approach.

Another recent buy from Topshop that i’ve been wearing to death is their Faux Fur Lined Puffa Jacket (£69) of which I ordered and returned because they very kindly reduced it by £20 just after i’d ordered (don’t you just hate when they do that?!). I purchased a puffa jacket from Topshop in the sale last year and I absolutely love it, so I thought it was about time I added a new one into my collection and I bloody love this coat. It has faux fur around the hood and it’s also lined down the back which makes it extra extra cosy and has been keeping me so warm since the cold front surprised us a few weeks ago! (P.s if you’re thinking of ordering this, order your normal top size because it’s hella oversized fit wise and you don’t need to size up. You’re welcome!)

Finally, my last purchase from Topshop was their Boxy Striped Tee (£12) which I purchased whilst I was in London a few weeks ago and I already own the grey version, and love it so I just had to buy the black and white version. I love slightly boxy cropped fits these days as I find them so flattering and these are so easy to style with a pair of jeans for a casual look.

The last item I wanted to share with you is a recent buy from Primark of which i’m not sure if it’s available anymore, but I couldn’t not talk about this Button Front Corduroy Skirt of which i’ve been wearing to death. Style this with a simple long sleeve turtleneck top, tights and boots, and you’re good to go!
