OOTD: A Cosy Jumper and Cold Ankles!

I usually don’t have time to take OOTD photos but my friend was delayed on the way to our coffee date this morning, so I had a few extra minutes before starting my walk down to the high street.

One of my new cold weather staples is this simple grey funnel neck jumper from Zara. It’s oversized – perfect for hiding warm layers underneath. I see so many ‘winter’ outfits which are just a loose-knit jumper with some jeans – I would freeze! Give me lots of layers any day.

Annoyingly, the neck is tiny (or maybe I have a large head) and the fabric doesn’t stretch much.  Every time I put it on I feel like I’m in danger of pulling hair out. But when it’s on, I love it. It will get lots of wear this winter!

Note to self: Don’t wear cropped jeans in winter. You will have very cold ankles. Ripped jeans probably weren’t the best idea either….#breezy

OOTD: Obsessed with the Denim Dress

I took advantage of the sunshine today and walked into town to have a browse around the shops. This denim pinafore dress was a flash sale steal from ASOS. I love it – I’ve already worn it 3 times since it arrived on Wednesday! It works equally well with a range of tops underneath but today I paired it with a simple white tee.

I forgot to get a picture of the back (this is what happens when you’re rushing to leave the house) but it’s cut away to waist level (imagine a demin skirt with braces!).

I think this dress is so versatile – for an even more casual summer or sporty look it would work with a bralette and trainers. For the colder months, or maybe as a more demure look for work, I’d team it with a polo neck jumper and tights. If I had to change anything, I would make the straps adjustable (t’s a tiny bit baggy at the top) – but I still think this dress is going to be a firm favourite of mine for a long time 🙂
