I feel like l haven’t done an outfit post for ages! My blog has definitely been taken over by the Topshop Freedom Jewellery Advent Calendar. It’s one of the most useful advent calendars I’ve ever bought actually, because unlike the chocolate or picture ones, this has some use after Advent! I have to say I can't wait to get wearing all the jewellery. I thought I would do days five and six of the calendar tomorrow though, and today get back to a bit of focus on some clothes!

I’m determined to get as much use out of this fur stole from Zara as possible, but at the same time, because it’s white, I’m really nervous about getting dirt all over it…I should probably have factored that in before I bought it, but what can you do. Being faux fur, it’s really soft and warm so all you want to do is wrap it up around your neck in this arctic weather, but I don’t want to get make up all over it so I spend my time craning my neck like an ostrich so make-up and fur don’t meet…might just have to get on and except it’s going to get dirty!

On reflection, this probably wasn’t one of the warmest outfits I could have put together. Whilst I’ve got the warm fur stole and knee boots (my KG bargain favourites) – I didn’t actually think about a coat. Clever. I think I need to finally realise that just because I’m wearing faux fur, doesn’t mean I’m going to be warm all over. On the plus side, this jumper from Warehouse has been one of my best buys of the year and is one of those styles which hides a multitude of sins; if you just want to cover up but don’t want to look like a bag lady, then these baggy but detailed jumpers are ideal. Warehouse have the most amazing selection, and whilst they can be a little pricey, they always have bits in the sale on their website, and they’re actually quite petite-friendly.

I'm feeling pretty excited at the moment because I have some amazing plans and collaborations coming up on the blog, so I can't wait to share it all with you. 2014 is going to be a really exciting year, 2013 hasn't really been that great to be honest, so I feel that 2014 is going to be so much better. After a pretty awful couple of weeks, it's really nice to be getting back to normal and finally I'm starting to get into the Christmas spirit!
