As you know I just hate the cold and so I am still in denial that winter is really on its way. But the heating went on this week and the Birkenstocks were put away until summer 2010.
I really work with my winter coats and add loads of different accessories as I feel a little drab in them and never that comfortable. I can wear the same coat over and over but I just change the look with my accessories. I love my gloves and scarves and choose boots and bags to match. They never tend to match in fabric but all co-ordinate in a design way.
My scarves have to be either a little chic or completely the other way with a very on-trend feel. I have three huge boxes with windows on top of my wardrobe filled with gloves, scarves and throws to get me through the winter.
Here are some of my favourites this year at QVC and I've already made one purchase from the adorable and ever-so-chic Beth Terrell range.
I couldn't resist this Beth Terrell scarf (left) as I have boots to match. So kitch and I wear both with my dark brown leather full length coat. I have kept the coat simple in design as the boots and scarf scream animal print. I love it, so soft and so warm.
My black coat comes just under my bottom and has a big collar with double breasted big buttons. I wear it with black skinnie jeans, black knee-length flat suede boots, a black soft cap and black suede gloves from Beth Terrell in black (right).
In the evening I'm not really a big coat girl so I live in warm luxury shawls over my outfit or over a light coat. I have my eye on this Dreamkeeper beaded ruffle wrap (left) as it is very glamorous with black velvet ruffles and an elegant floral design. It's perfect Over that little black dress with velvet black shoes at Christmas or even to pick out some of the colours in the floral design looks stunning.
Let me know your favourites and winter choices as I love to hear them.
p.s: I've got lots to tell you soon about my trip down memory lane with my husband after 16 years of marriage, my visit to the vet with Scruncher (what an experience!) and also my trip to the Isle of Wight and going into the Liz Earle store on Union St.
