Belted Puffy Jacket

Although my past foray into fake fur wasn’t exactly a success (hello, Woolly mammoth…) this jacket was too warm and comfy to pass up! Plus, I love how the belt makes it more figure flattering. Remember, with puffy jackets, the trick is to look for more fitted ones or ones that tuck in at the waist so you don’t look like a marshmallow 🙂

I’ll keep it short and sweet today because it is the Weekeeeeennnnddd Baaaabbbyyy (Anyone else miss hearing that on Gareth Cliff’s show??) I can’t help but add a ridiculously long “Baaaabbbbbyyyy!” whenever someone says, “It’s the weekend.”

Have a wonderful weekend whatever you’re doing 🙂

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 🙂

My no-effort required outfit

I have been sick for the past week and it has not been a pretty sight. The last few days have been spent in bed with no make-up on, layered up like an Eskimo because I have flu and our house is freezing. For some inexplicable reason D and I have no heater (or apparently the inclination to buy one either, because at least twice a day we comment to one another how we really need to get one but, alas, still no heater …).

Although I took  a couple days off work to try get better, I had to go back eventually. On days where I feel sick, or just don’t feel like putting in any effort, my military jacket is my go-to “No effort required” outfit. It requires minimal fuss, is super comfy and is one of those pieces that is just really easy to wear and adds an extra element to an outfit that otherwise might look a bit plain. My favorite way to wear it is with a striped top and a chunky necklace as seen in the photos.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Statement coat

I love colorful coats! In Winter, people tend to hibernate their bright colors and wear a lot of gray, brown and black. While those colors are fabulous for boots, it can get kind of depressing if you look like that all winter. So I love adding bright pops of color into my winter wardrobe. I love this green coat from Zara because it’s fun, bright and makes me happy while keeping me warm.

If you aren’t really the kind of girl who wants to wear a jacket that practically screams “Look at me!” you can also wear a brightly colored scarf, handbag or even nail polish or lipstick to add some color into a gray day.

How do you like to add color on dreary winter days?
