December was upon us and for a casual Friday outfit I had to pull out my Coca Cola t shirt. I got more opportunity to wear it last year as my old office was casual dress all the time, but this year I’ll get little chance to wear it as is usually the case. I smartened up the basic jeans and t shirt look with a blazer and heels and added some chunky beads for another flash of red.

Same sweater, different dress and boots! It was far warmer than the previous day so the thinner dress I had picked out was perfect with my slouchy cardi over it (I sized up for a slouchier fit and for sleeve length as this one isn’t a Tall size).

I am loving the oversize trend this year – it’s so comfy and big sweaters feel so cosy when it’s chilly out. I think with this look the key is to balance out volume on your top half with something fitted on the bottom. So an oversize sweater with skinny jeans, or with a loose fitting dress keep the skirt length short to show off your legs in leggings or tights.

This wasn’t the dress I was intending to wear on Wednesday, but when I got up and saw the heavy frost outside I hastily switched to this wool knit one, figuring I could keep the thinner dress for the following day (which is just what I did – check back tomorrow for that post). Leggings, OTK boots and a soft knit cardi kept me warm and toasty all day.

Deichmann faux suede wedge boots


I forgot just how comfy these boots are! They have a faux-sheepskin lining so they only get worn on the coldest of days. I’m not sure they were the best option with this outfit (my tan ankle boots probably would have worked better) but once I had one on my foot I looked out of the window at the frost and there was no way I was taking them off. They are so cosy.

I am a little bit obsessed with the outfits on the Putting Me Together (puttingmetogether.com) blog right now, and this look is an homage to that. Audrey lives in San Diego which is clearly way warmer than England, so I had to layer up a bit more but the idea is there. I should wear this plaid shirt more often than I do anyway – it’s a lovely soft flannel which is perfect for this time of year. I plan to wear it with a burgundy sweater nearer Christmas too.

So the final few days of November were upon us and the temperatures dipped again. Monday morning I wasn’t feeling the best as my cold had developed over the weekend. I bundled up in a cosy cashmere sweater and a scarf and hoped for the best.

Saturday morning we had managed to take a trip to Fountain's Abbey though, to make the most of the winter sunshine and to get some further use out of our National Trust membership. And we were rewarded with clear blue skies, frost and autumn colours.

Friday morning I felt like I was coming down with a cold so I bundled up in a cosy sweater and scarf in an attempt to stave it off. I hate being ill, especially the cold kind of ill where you don’t feel 100% but you’re not that bad and you’d feel a bit of a fraud skipping work for it.
