Feeling Festive; Tartan Cape, Pussybow Blouse, Pointed Loafers


Hello all and Happy December!

It's no secret that I've had rather a thing for capes for years now, but, suddenly they have been deemed 'in' and this means there are capes-a-plenty across a huge variation of brands which I've been taking full advantage of. As well as that, it also means a lot of other people are now wearing them, which is obviously the nature of 'fashion' - things are 'in', then they're out, and I can't complain about that. I'm not someone who's often felt 'in' or 'cool' but in this instance I can't deny that I enjoy feeling somewhat smug that I was already on this bandwagon before it drove off. 

I've been more than a little lacklustre when it comes to posting outfits on my blog recently, so I'm kicking things off for winter with this rather festive ensemble, featuring a cape and pussy bow - what I'd call my 'signature look' (pause for vomit noises/cringing). I often feel a bit school-girlish in the way I dress and that's not at all intentional, I just enjoy dressing in a rather tailored, put-together manner somewhat reminiscent of a school uniform (my Granny often tells me I look 'smart'). Here I'm wearing an absolute new treasure of mine - this tartan cape, which has been my go-to colourful coat of the season. With it, I wore a pair of pointed black loafers with a 'pony hair' detail (not entirely sure I'm describing that accurately, but do we all know what I mean?) which I loved so much, I also bought the patterned version! I wore this outfit about a week ago whilst having a good old chinwag (pause for appreciation of the word 'chinwag) with Charlotte - who kindly took these photos for me in one of my favourite, most-frequented blog photo locations of all time. I just really enjoy the contrast in colours and crispness of this outfit - it's very much an eye catcher. 

Do you wear a lot of colour in the winter, or are you more of a black and white kind of person? Please let me know!

  3. I try to incorporate some colour into my outfits during the AW season but they're fairly dark as well (i.e. burgundy and forest green). Black is something I wear all year round :) X

  7. I always take much inspiration out of your outfits and this one is no exception! Also must compliment you for your writing... I like it.

    For me it really depends on the day or mostly week... I'm really feeling green these last couple of days (probably inspired by all the Christmas trees surrounding me).
