For anyone living in the UK at the moment, I don’t really need to explain this one. We had nothing over Christmas and then this last week the big freeze started, and all of a sudden we’re living in a winter bloody wonderland. And I’ve also come to the realisation that I don’t actually have anything in my wardrobe which is suitable for temperatures below freezing. In the interest of survival, I’ve spent the entire day snuggled up in the house (too cold to go outside), pouring over pinterest and some of my favourite blogs in the hopes of gaining some snow-proof sartorial inspiration, or snowspiration if you will.
The first set of images come from Atlantic-Pacific. Bee is one of those people who just seems to look effortlessly glamourous in every single situation. Even when she’s dressed down, she always looks chic. These were taken from her Tahoe post in 2011, and the thing I love about the outfits here is her layering. One of the main issues I have about this time of year is how to get layering right without looking as though you’ve gained twice your body weight, and whilst retaining proper use of your arms and be able to bend them properly. The other photos are from the Plumo. Although everything from them is on the pricey side, I love looking through Plumo (online or their gorgeous catalogues) for inspiration. The pieces are always beautifully crafted and their photography is lovely. After today’s extensive research, I’ve come to the conclusion that I need a thicker Barbour, a pair of tall matte red Hunters, and a nice plaid scarf. How are you surviving the cold?
Sign me up to the list for a thicker barbour and a pair of red tartan hunters too! I wore 5 layers out yesterday, not even kidding 😐 Totally know what you mean though, I went to get my eyebrows threaded and when she asked me to hold my brow I had to take off my coat cause between my top, shirt, cardigan, jacket AND coat (yep, a jacket and a coat!) I couldn't actually get my arms round the back of my head to hold it properly, so if you figure out how to layer without that being an issue please share your knowledge 😉
Such chic winter layering!
Awe, these are beautiful! I always feel so bulky when I dress for the cold; never this cute. Thanks for the inspiration. I love your blog. I'm now following you.
Bee always looks fabulous! It's unfair haha! xx
Love all of these outfits – I am definitely craving super warm and snuggly clothing! xxx
Great inspiration photographs 🙂
