Winter and the run up to Christmas is definitely my favourite time of year. I love coming out of work when it's dark and seeing all the beautiful Christmas lights lining the streets, as well as coming home to the smell of a real Christmas tree in the living room. Literally nothing beats it. Style wise, I love having a cosy coat, scarf and lots of layers, it's definitely my season, so I thought I'd share a few of the items that are currently gracing my wish list...
If my friends were to describe my style, they'd say I wore a lot of pinks, peaches and pastels (I'm very girly), so this coat has my name written all over it. Whilst I love the traditional colours of Christmas, I also love muted pastels for this season, as I think they're so pretty and have a really wintery feel. My main aim for this Winter is to get a lovely warm wool coat and this one from River Island is a strong contender.
I think this dress is stunning. It reminds me of an ice queen mixed with Great Gatsby, and I just think it's so elegant for the Christmas season. Since first making this wish list, I tried this dress on and nearly bought it, but the size was a little too big for me and I decided on something else. It's such a beautiful dress however and would be perfect for a Christmas party.
I love wearing collared shirts with pretty jumpers at this time of year, and I think big chunky collared necklaces can look really nice to spice up simple outfits. I think this necklace from Miss Selfridge is really pretty, it's pastel (so I love it) and it would look really cute poking out from under my collar.
There's nothing better than an oversized slouchy jumper at Christmas to keep you cosy, and I think this baby pink jumper from Topshop is adorable. It would look great with some black skinny jeans and boots and would be perfect for a casual Sunday lunch at the pub!
I've really liked the tartan trend that's around at the moment, but haven't actually bought into it as I think it's going to disappear as soon as it's started. However, I think this tartan scarf would be a great staple piece for the winter, because it's really classic, simple and timeless.
What do you think of my winter wish list?
