It has been a little while since I’ve written a fashion post, so I thought it was about time I stepped up my blogging game and hit the keyboard. You see, I don’t know if you’ve noticed – there has been a little bit of a change here on the blog. A new look, a fresh approach to how I present all my little loves to you. A colour scheme that makes me smile and a layout which I have been longing for but has taken me a little while to figure out. As most of you know – Life As Our Little Family is a family, lifestyle and style blog, a place where I document our family life, adventures and little loves. I love fashion & photography and finally I feel like I have a place to share all of that with you.
I’ve tried to be super organised and have everything categorised so that you can find it without digging deep – also so that I stay focussed on these three areas. I often lose myself to one and there’s so much more that I would like to share with you and for the most part that is my love for fashion and so today, on a rather cold day in November is the beginning of me sharing more of my style loves with you.
And so I give you the pink coat, my biggest love in my wardrobe. I’ve never really been one to follow a certain trend, follow fashion rules – I go with the attitude of if it feels great then wear it, however when this pink coat hit the shops I couldn’t help but invest. I knew it would go quickly, and when you know, you know right?
I spotted it before I really needed it but you know that feeling of, this is the one. It was everything I needed in a new winter coat. And it’s pink, because lets face it every girl needs a pink coat! I was drawn to it as it is oversized – I am always guilty of picking out tailored coats which I struggle to fit big cosy knits under and well lets face it stay warm in at this time of the year. So, this year I vowed to not make that mistake again. It may not be the most flattering of coats that I have, nonetheless it is my favourite. I have so much love for this coat, does it show?
Finding your own way, wearing what you like and feel good in is so important. I love to embrace the change in seasons, and really is there anything better than that cosy feeling on a bright autumn day? My love for midi dress and mini skirts stays with me throughout winter and this coat is perfect for that, its so warm and toasty that I soon forget my ankles freezing. Really, I do. And best of all I am not left feeling like the Michelin man when layered with my second love, a big cosy knit.
I had hoped to link both the coat and jumper for you but it would seem both have disappeared off their accompanying websites. I have seen them in the shops recently though so do have a snoop if you like them. And so let’s go back to the old traditional ways – the coat is Topshop, £85 although I have seen it recently at 30% off. There’s also a brown, blue and natural version, the blue is lovely.
The cosy knit is from Next, £35. It’s super comfy, a gorgeous material and unusually for a roll neck it isn’t too tight around the neck. I’d been looking for a cream knit for a while and this is definitely a firm favourite. I have to say Next have nailed it with their winter fashion this year.
So talk to me about your wardrobe favourites at this time of year?
