In this post, I wanted to show you guys a typical outfit I would wear to work in the wintertime. As you can see, there's lots of black going on, as well as LOTS of layers! I find that mixing textures is a great way to make an all-black outfit look that bit more exciting, and here I have layered one of my favourite faux-fur gilets over a tweed-effect coat to give me that extra warmth that I need in the cold weather. Turtlenecks are also key for staying cosy, I have been living in them all winter!
Of course, no all-black ensemble would be complete without a little bit of leather, and this new bag I got from Misstella certainly ticks that box. I was kindly asked to pick an item of my choosing from their website recently, and when I spotted this gorgeous minimal tote, I knew it would make for the perfect everyday bag a girl-on-the-go like myself. The material is a buttery soft soft imitation leather, and this particular tote actually comes as part of a set of three pieces, so you really do get a lot for your money. After using the bag everyday at work for about a week or so, I can happily say that it is becoming an essential in my accessories arsenal, also it reminds me so much of the Céline black shopper-tote!
As Spring is finally here (yaaaaay!) I plan on taking lots more outfit posts for the blog (weather providing) as I have so many new pieces to share with you all! Also, you may have spotted on my facebook or instagram yesterday that I will be collaborating with Boohoo.com on some fun outfit projects for their new #OWNIT campaign soon, so be sure to stay tuned for that!
I hope you're all having a lovely relaxing Sunday,
