The Silk Cami


I am the worst blogger, I had all intentions of this going up last weekend, but I never got round to writing it up and by the time I remembered it was way past acceptable to post a post on a Sunday, so it's been scheduled for now. This week has been an exciting one for me. I've had a few brands get in contact to work with me which is amazing because it shows people are liking my content and I won a competition for kiehl's products which I am so totally over the moon with as I've been wanting to try their products forever! So I will keep you lovely lot updated with how I get on with everything

I also went iceskating yesterday, which has kicked of Christmas for definite for me now so I am in full Christmas mode, Christmas songs and Christmas cheer galore until January 1st, if not longer. There is nothing better than ice skating with friends and then getting a few nibbles and drinks after it's just such a great activity and so festive! Now I just need to start that Christmas present shopping!

Now on to the outfit. Yes it has been freezing and yes my arms are out and yes that is a blogger cliche starbucks christmas cup in my hand as a prop (it was a delicious toffee nut latte may I add) But nonetheless I love this outfit. I am your average tee, jeans, jacket, boot/trainer kinda a gal with a skirt or dress thrown in when I want be extra jazzy, but that's nothing new I'm sure I mention that every time I write an outfit post. But what I wanted more than anything recently was to add more tops that aren't just stripes or plain to my wardrobe, so I can go out feeling a little put together and 'special' now and again. 

So along came this cami -  well ok my sisters cami - because whats the point in having a sister if you can't share her clothes?! Firstly let me apologise for the fact it may have been lying on my floor for a while and so there is a lovely line right now the middle of it. But if we look past that we can see it's a gorgeous cream colour, the material is gorgeous and it has a little lace detail. Although my hair has hidden that detail well. I just love this. I can wear it casually like I have done here or I could dress it up with a skirt and maybe even a red lip for the evening. It's a win win really and so simple.

Aww the baker boy. Who hasn't seen these circling the blogosphere? I just really feel they are perfect for this season though! They may not keep your ears warm but they sure do keep your hair under wraps with the wind. Not to mention perfect for a bad hair day and you still look good! I love the plaited detail, buttons and leather like cap detail on this one and it was such a bargain! You really can pick up some gems in H&M.

Lastly boots, the winter staple of all winter staples. I think I get a new black pair every season. But that is because I can never find the right pair. Until now! (call me up on this if I buy a new pair next year and say the exact same thing) But they have the perfect sized heel and they are the sock style and they do actually fit my ankles perfectly! There is no bag or anything, I love them! The best thing is, they don't hurt your feet after wearing them for hours! Can you get any better than that??

What's your winter staple??
