Now I know its technically classed as Autumn right now, but as you probably know, I am Scottish and so you may be able to guess what our Autumn is like. As someone said to me once “You’ve not experienced Scottish weather until you experience all four seasons in one day”!
I made this wishlist around a week ago, so some shopping may have occurred since. oops.
One; Primark- This is last years collection but a lady who lived in my building in my old house had it, and I lusted after it all last year. I even went to two of the Glasgow Primarks but couldn’t find it. Finally after checking ebay at least once a week for the last two months, I finally found one in my size (I hope, Primark’s sizing is very hit or miss). I don’t know how much it was in store, but I paid £22 plus P&P. If anyone knows how much it was originally I’d love to know.
Two; Cream knitted bobble hat – New look- £4.99. I love these slouch style hats. I actually tried a grey version of this on last time I was in New Look but decided I would wait until my coat came so I can see if the cream version will look right with it.
Three; Ebay- Faux suede flat, over-knee boots-£29.99. I love these, I’ve lusted over knee high boots for years, but never found any I liked as I have a slight fear of buying shoes online. My used feet sit between two sizes so I never really know which size I am, but recently they’ve grown a little bit so I think I’m more towards the larger size (I have elephant feet it seems!) so I feel a bit more confident now to fork out £30 for something I can’t try on, plus their returns policy seems alright.
Four; H&M –Gloves (with bows)-£7.99. These are a cotton with ‘pleather’ bows, however I found faux suede ones in Primark for £7 and figured they would match the boots I plan on buying (when SAAS finally pay me). I love the wee bow detail. They’re cute but sophisticated, will look lovely with pretty much anything I think!
Five; Over the knee socks (from anywhere). I’ve seen a few OFOTD using over the knee socks layered and so I fancy experimenting with them. I got a pair from Primark (as you can probably tell, I’ve spent a lot more time in Primark than I should have recently)they were around the £2 mark if not less. an OFOTD with them to come maybe?
Six; Matalan- Falmer Reindeer Cardigan-£30.00. This just screams Christmas to me! There’s lots of Reindeer pattern and Fairisle style jumpers coming onto the market. I love the style and I’m fortunate enough to be engaged to a Shetlander, so I may try to get some real Fairisle items next time I’m visiting my lovely in-laws (or ask one of the talented ladies in his family to knit me some as a Christmas present).
Seven; Topshop- Heart Bag-£22. I just think this is so cute! I’m not sure I’d use it for anything other than nights out or quick trips into town as its quite small and I tend to carry around a big purse, my camera and a water bottle amongst a plethora of other things. Definitely a big bag person.
So that’s what I’m lusting after to keep me warm and feeling good through the next few winter months. Expect an “I love my coat” post sometime in the next month, I get attached to coats quite easily.
You like my choices? What are you planning for the cold, winter days?
