The 'When did it get so cold?' Winter Wishlist

The 'When did it get so cold?' Winter wishlist

Is it just me or has it got exceptionally cold in, like, an exceptionally short amount of time? Just a week or two ago I was revelling in the fact that I could still get my legs out and not catch a chill...fast forward to now and my thought process has evolved into 'just how many layers can I fit under this lightweight trench before I have to invest in an actual seasonal coat?!'  The winter chill has crept up so fast that I feel a little taken off guard and unprepared clothing wise. However, in all honesty, when you're job hunting and on intern-rates, money for shopping splurges can run a little dry. For this reason, I have promised myself not to go crazy this winter and to pick out some key pieces I aim to hunt down (however, true to form, the pieces I've pulled are not the thriftiest of choices so it's not exactly win-win). 

On to the pieces:

1. An oversized long line camel coat like this Topshop one, as well as this gorgeous Asos Cocoon version. 

2. A new leather jacket (my current one was bought about 6 years ago and is well and truly battered beyond repair). I like this Zara real leather jacket, or this cheaper faux Topshop option. 

3. Lots of faux fur accessories- scarves to keep me warm and clutches just because...Black scarf here, cream scarf here (this bag sold out I think- lots of options on Asos or Topshop though!). 

4. A pair of over-the-knee heeled booties, I love this Topshop pair in black and grey

5. Roll necks, roll necks, roll necks: wear alone, layer underneath things; the choices are endless. Roll necks are a great way to turn your summer dresses into early winter transitional pieces. I love these Gap Merino wool jumpers

6. A colourful suited co-ord like these Asos beauties (green here & here and grey here & here). 

What's on your wishlist for this season? 


  1. Love the topshop camel coat! I'm would love to try the thigh high boots trend this season but not sure where I'd start with styling them!
