Now it’s December it means we are officially in Winter. Sigh. For a sun worshipper like me, Winter is my least favourite season of them all. I hate the cold. During the colder months I find myself stocking up on sweaters and knits and wearing multiple layers for the duration to keep myself warm.
As much as I complain about the change in weather, it’s not all bad; the change in season means a change in wardrobe and the chance to build on your winter staples.
Black Friday is the perfect time to add to your winter wardrobe as there’s so many deals about. If your not able to make it to the stores, there’s also a wide variety of deals available online to be had. So what did I purchase?
The first item wasn’t in the sale but I have wanted it since the Mr Porter x COS collection was first released. The Textured Alpaca-Blend Scarf is one of my favourite purchases this year. The quality is unbelievable; It’s made from alpaca-blend yarns in an insulating basketweave texture, it looks good and keeps me warm. I was on the look out for a ‘smart’ scarf for a while and this grey number fits the description perfectly. Another item I had been after for a while is a pair of skinny/slim cropped trousers in navy blue. After the trouble I had finding a pair of black ones a couple of months ago, I knew I had my work cut out finding a similar pair. Having purchased my other pair from ASOS, that was my first port of call. While I couldn’t find an exact match, these Navy Slim Fit Cropped Chinos in the sale from River Island (via ASOS) are the second best option.
My final purchase were these new adidas Stan Smith Gore-Tex Shoes. Stan Smiths are classics. Over the years I have owned multiple pairs of the classic silhouette and with my last pair looking like they’ve seen better days I thought it was time to treat myself to some new ones, and at 20% off I couldn’t say no. Unlike tradition Stan Smiths these ones are designed for all elements and are lined with GORE-TEX, making them completely waterproof, breathable and perfect for all weather come rain or shine. I also love this colour option with the vintage off white soles and faded green heel branding, much like the vintage Stan Smiths.
So there you have it; my new season finds, what do you think?
