Winter Comforts

I am all about comfort when it gets colder – fleece pajamas, woolly slippers, delicious mugs of Hot Chocolate, steaming hot baths, and candles with warm scents like cinnamon and pine – I do it all. That comfort extends to my Winter wardrobe too – if it’s woolly, fluffy or an oversized knit, then it is probably in my cupboard 🙂

How do you spoil yourself in Winter? We have a tradition in my family. Every year, my mom always buys us fleece pajamas from Woolworths. Yes I am almost 30 and have been married for nearly 4 years, but I still get pajamas from my mom once a year and I am not ashamed to admit it 🙂

Winter skirt

How was everyone’s weekend? Football Fever is still going strong in our household so basically my weekend was a blur of men running around on a green field 🙂

After a weekend of casual clothes and no make-up, it’s nice to wear something a little girly – a skirt. In Winter it is easy to shun skirts and dresses in favor of jeans and long pants, but I love the look of boots with a skirt – it is just so feminine and pretty. I got this skirt from YDE years ago and although I swelter in it if I am stupid enough to try wear it in summer (because of the thicker material), I revive it excitedly every winter. The thick material is perfect for cold days and high boots.

This is a super soft look, but if it is too girly for you, you could add a leather jacket and black boots to give it more of an edge.Skirt and boots

Blues and boots

The colder mornings we’ve been having lately have definitely made me reach for my boots. I love ankle boots because they aren’t as “high maintenance” as taller boots. With tall boots you have to faff around tucking your jeans in and making sure you socks are on snugly etc etc. But with ankle boots all you have to do is pop them on, zip them up, and voila. Plus, I think they just look really sleek and sophisticated in an understated way.

What do you think about ankle boots? Love them or do you usually reach for tall boots?
