Snow Day Outfit


Hi everyone! As part of my new year blogging resolutions I said I would try and spend more time doing outfit posts so.. drum roll please, here is my first outfit post of the year! It was surprisingly alright jumping out in the snow to take some shots although I don't know about you guys, but it's made me realise I have no practical shoes to wear in this kind of weather at all - apart from wellies!

Faux Leather Quilted Biker Jacket // Topshop
Collared Crew Jumper // Oasis
Skater Dress // Topshop
Chelsea Boots // Miss Selfridge
Beanie // Topshop





I'm wearing my faux leather biker jacket from Topshop with a collared crew jumper from Oasis. Originally this jumper had an animal print collar (which I love) but I was given this unwanted leather collar from my Mum who has the cream version, so I decided to switch it for this outfit! The jumper is super soft and cosy and as I'm a sucker for collared tops, I love the fact you can switch the collars on it as they are detachable, or you can remove them completely to make a pretty versatile classic crew neck! It just means I'm now more tempted to get it in different colours!

Underneath I'm wearing a classic plain black skater dress which is last season Topshop. Although it's sleeveless it's pretty perfect when it comes to layering up in winter and my plum chunky knit beanie which is, guess what, also from Topshop always adds a bit of extra warmth!
- I've only just realised how much of this outfit is from there, ooops sorry guys, bit Topshop obsessed-  
It's been my favourite beanie to wear this winter not only because it keeps my head so snug but injects a bit of colour into lots of outfits! My little Chelsea boots are from Miss Selfridge - you've probably seen it my other outfit posts as they're my everyday go to boots and surprisingly they have quite a gripy sole!  

What have you all been wearing in the snow?

  1. Great little outfit Justine - I love your berry coloured bobble hat and I'm lusting after your leather collar. I have the exact same jumper from Oasis but only have the leopard print collar, I should of convinced my mum to buy one too!

  5. Love your beanie! I'm so addicted to that colour at the moment. The snow definitely made me realised I had no snow appropriate footwear as well!
