    January Fashion Wishlist

    Regular readers of this blog know how much I love sharing fashion outfit ideas and a few ootd’s. Though I do not share a lot of ootd posts with me in them, I still love trying and sharing. For me fashion is not defined or constrained to what we see in magazines, or the models in the media. Fashion to be is about putting on an outfit that makes me happy, a comfortable yet stylish outfit. I do not dress in designer clothes, one can dream but that shouldn’t limit anyone when it comes to Fashion.

    When I was creating this January Fashion Wishlist, I looked into my closet and thought; what do I need. I am not a fan of layering but with the current weather conditions, I have learnt to Embrace the season. It has certainly not been easy but one must learn to adapt or learn to change when necessary. There are times when it is best to change some old habits and adopt new ones.

    Embrace the season

    Whilst embracing the season, my first order of business was to purchase a long belted coat from New Look. I have another one in the closet but I needed a second pair in another colour. Until recently I felt inclined to add another long-belted coat to my wishlist. The weather has been particularly nasty lately and as someone who isn’t a fan of tights, my toes have been freezing. I added thick socks to as well as some gloves and a new beanie to replace the one I lost.

    Now I don’t know about you but for me my bedroom is my sanctuary. Every night I praise the gods when I lay down for the night for the miracle that is my mattress. I can not go without is my favourite and warm pajamas which are the best bedroom fashion ever. When I am packing for my trips the first item I pack is my pajama set then my passport . You can tell I have my priorities straight up!!

    Another item that I need in my wardrobe are jumpers, I have no clue what happened to them. I used to have a collection of them and now I am only left with two. One I bought from Zara,and its the warmest I own then a second from primark and it’s cute.  Jumpers are always the best layering items one can pose in their closet. When you wear a jumper in winter, then your coat not much layering is required a good thing for me. And that’s how my January Fashion Wishlist took shape and now I am thinking of adding more.

    Stay Safe

    And the items mentioned above, made my January Fashion Wishlist and now I need hot chocolate. I don’t know about where you are but Oxfordshire is definitely colder this January than any other time. Stay safe in such adverse weather conditions, snow is forecasted for this weekend so stock up on food and water.

      Thick socks are a must! And I always have a scarf but I really need to get myself a hat! I love the style of the one you picked, that’s exactly what I’d want!

      • January 14, 2017 / 1:41 pm

      Comfortable pyjamas are my absolute weakness. Sometimes I prefer PJ shopping to actual clothes shopping!

      • January 14, 2017 / 1:38 pm

        Oh I know that feeling only too well and I am the same too

    11. January 13, 2017 / 9:21 am

      Love the cute socks in your wishlist. I always have to layer up as I never have anything warm enough on it’s own x

      • January 14, 2017 / 1:38 pm

        Thanks Rhian, I know the feeling as that’s me all over

    12. January 13, 2017 / 8:05 am

      Thank you Crissy, it can be difficult to embrace this season sometimes but little victories like warm PJ’s even hot chocolate can help

      I love the slippers and the white hat with the furry pom pom. They both look so warm and cozy on this chilly day of only 28 degrees in Chicago!

      • January 13, 2017 / 7:56 am

        Definitely warm & cozy I can guarantee it

    14. January 12, 2017 / 7:48 pm

      I think you definitely made the right choice to embrace layering even though you don’t really care for it. I love your choice of coat and those slippers look so very warm and cosy x

      • January 13, 2017 / 7:55 am

        Thank you so much, I am definitely embracing the season

      We were cold for the last few days but, it has warmed up quite nicely now! I still enjoy a good cup of hot chocolate! I like all things warm so another pair of cozy pj’s, the beanie wI’ll be fine. I don’t even have a long belted coat because I think I’m too short.

      • January 13, 2017 / 7:55 am

        It is still freezing here and doesnt seem to be warming up any time soon but good thing I have this awesome coat

    16. January 12, 2017 / 4:20 pm

      Love those slippers and in need of some new ones so may just have to treat myself – I love this season for warmth and snuggle items

      • January 13, 2017 / 7:54 am

        Though I am not a fun of this season I do love it for extra snuggles

      • January 13, 2017 / 7:48 am

        To remedy that, I bought an eletric blanket

    21. January 12, 2017 / 1:53 pm

      A coat is a must have for me and I get cold so easily! I love the look of that gorgeous grey belted coat!

      • January 13, 2017 / 7:47 am

      I’ve just bought a bobble hat just like that! Nice selection of clothes in neutrals; looking at them it makes me feel all warm and snugly! Hot chocolate sounds like a good idea too!
