Winter Casual

Hey Leggy Lovelies,

8 more sleeps til Christmas! I trust you are all on the naughty list 😉

Getting another little person ready (and often, ready again) before leaving the house can mean that I’m lucky if I get to put a bit of slap on or a chance to blast myself with dry shampoo. So usually an easy-to-put-together outfit is in order.

Here’s one I wore earlier…

Cape, Topshop £35: Occasionally I wear this belted too; it’s a great piece to layer over chunky jumpers and cardis as an alternative to a coat.

Jeans: Asos £32. I cannot go on enough about how bloody brilliant ASOS Ridley jeans are. They’re my favourite Tall jeans on the market right now; stretchy but more jean-like than the Topshop Leigh variety. The high waist also puts an end to the builder’s bum issues we all suffer. (Right?)

T-Shirt: Burton £9.60. I’m loving the trend for Chanel-esque black-on-white typography tops and jumpers right now. This is actually a men’s tee from Burton, hence the length. I’m wearing the Large and I’ve layered it over an old ASOS jersey top.

Bag: Primark, £12. I’ve never in my life travelled light, but having a baby has taken the whole handbag-meets-luggage thing to a new level. This snake-effect Primarni number has all the compartments I need for nappies/ muslins, etc.

Boots: Topshop, £45. These are cute black Chelsea boots with a bit of a twist. The leather is also super soft and supple, so expect it to stretch a little — mine did. Available up to a roomy Euro 42.

Has anyone purchased a pretty cape? Or found some fab winter boots? I keep getting questions about the knee-length variety (they need to be long in the leg AND in the foot), so it’d be fab if you have any leads…

  1. Looking gorgeous laura! I have a pair of knee high lace ups from Timberland I adore. They’re a bit crazy cat lady on a hike, but that’s pretty much my vibe, anyway!

    These blue Ted Baker boots are my current fave – check them out for shoes with an edge!

    If this is you with minimal effort then be very chuffed with yourself! Xx

  2. I’m in comfort mode myself today: leggings, a long bum-length slouchy cardigan and a t shirt.

    A number of recent trends (long cardigans, joggers, maxi skirts) have been comfortable, functional and flattering. What’s wrong with this picture? 🙂

  3. Fab! I love it all!

    Looking up the asos jeans now 😉 x

  4. Can’t believe you managed a blog post with a small baby. AND you washed your hair? I refuse to believe it’s possible. Well done!
