winter warmers

8 January 2010

I think by now we all know the deal, it's snowing pretty much all over the uk. &yes we're excited! Though it seems the excitement is fading and now the country is beginning to panic.. we're running out of grit, we're running out of food. C'mon uk.. grow a back bone!


Anywho.. :) In my attempt to embrace the snow and icy conditions I have been layering and wrapping up warm to take 'trecherous' and unnecessary walks outside! Shocking I know.. I feel totally rebellious.......... :P


Here are a few of the things that have got me through this pretty nippy weather..


My hat has been my staple accessory this year. I wear it all the time and love how it keeps the rest of my body a little warmer too. My hate is not the one shown above but a cream chunky oversized cable knit beanie that I bought from h&m a couple of months ago. It goes with every ouitfit and is quite possibly my favourite hat of all that I own! :)


I bought a hoody from new look mens section last year with fur on the inside and love the feeling of it being oversized, snuggly and warm! It may need replacing soon and I have my eye on this Jacamo one.. but doubt I will get my hands on it due to the price tag


I live in these dorothy perkins jumpers! I pair them with leggings, skinny jeans, ug boots, cowboy boots or a pair of my many other boots.. :) They're pretty chunky and keep me nice and snug! :) love them!


Knee high socks &leg warmers under my boots! They're warm & they look great partially showing out of the top of my boots.


Ug boots have been keeping my toesies warm this winter! Mine arn't real ofcourse.. I have the river island rip off :)


A nice big chunky scarf! I'm ashamed to say that I ventured into primark this winter hunting for a chunky cheap scarf. I found a mink coloured one and where it most days as it seems to work with most of the things I wear.. plus it's reeeeally warm! :)


Not a huge fan of wearing gloves mainly because I find it impossible to text from my tocco or use my ipod. But with temparatures like -4 i'm so glad a bought these gloves from accessorize! Pretty and practical :):)


So that's it for my winter necessities.. What are your winter warmer essentials right now?
