New-ish Winter Wardrobe Purchases

This is just a wee post about some of the clothes I have bought recently.

I had been on the look out for a snood that could be wrapped around tight for a while. I have a lovely red furry one from Topshop which I love but it's stitched in place and hangs quite low. I saw this one in River Island when I was Christmas shopping and had to get it since it fitted the bill perfectly. It's so cosy, a nice neutral colour, can be wrapped around tightly and wasn't too expensive...£15 I think. I've worn it almost everyday since I bought it, definitely a good purchase.

I finally decided on a winter coat! I bought this navy wool overcoat from Zara. (I did try to take my own photo but had to steal the website one since it looked a bit better here!) I am the worst person at decision making but somehow my friends managed to put up with my half an hour debate over whether to buy it or not and convince me to go for it. I'm really glad I did, I'd tried on lots of coats over the past few months and you might have seen my blog post about a month or so ago about which coat to buy. As the worst decision maker in the world I still wasn't 100% sure about it even once I had it at home. It did hang on a hanger on the front of my wardrobe for a week or so before I wore it! However now that I have worn it I'm very happy with this purchase!

I bought this wee H&M number for a date! ;) And I've worn it a few times since then for 'casual drinks' kind of nights out. It was only £14.99 which I think is pretty good going. I often get drawn towards anything with cream and navy/black stripes, it's a look that I really like. I'll hopefully get lots more wears out of this one...possibly tomorrow night to a gig I'm going to.

I'm not usually a fan of Primark but I do have to admit that I love their basic clothes. I live in their plain black tee's when I'm at work and this jumper was only £5. I have a lack of jumpers so this filled a space in my wardrobe. They have so many different colours but I chose this one in deep red! My favourite colour...and so Christmassy! I do keep venturing back into Primark for basic clothes. I bought a plain teal coloured t-shirt a few days ago and a pack of coloured socks for wearing with my ankle boots, needed some nice socks for when you can see the socks at the top of the boots.

I haven't really bought much more than this recently, I'm wearing the same dress I got for a wedding in September to my work's Christmas night out on Saturday but I'm thinking depending on my bank balance in a few weeks I'll have a little look out for a nice outfit to wear on Christmas day. I saw a few velvety playsuits on a website somewhere so might look into that! But for just now my money is primarily for Christmas presents and socialising! :)
