The build up to winter

   









Working in an office in the winter is usually a nightmare for me when it comes to dressing. I find it hard to dress right so that I'm not too hot or cold inside, then warm enough for outside. So I thought I'd show the various layers that I build up to create enough warmth for winter temperatures, yet at the same time stay chic enough for the office.

The faux fur scarf has been an absolute godsend - it's one of my best purchases (another impulse buy) this winter. I love it to death; it can make the plainest coat or blazer look fabulous, and looks good even with another thinner scarf at the neck (rather than thick wool). I recommend a faux fur scarf for every girl's wardrobe - you can buy the same H&M one here.

(You will notice I am allowed to wear double denim at the office... we have a very relaxed dress code. I still can't go without the jewellery and heels though.)

  4. I love the progression of photos, Catherine - so creative! You look fab in double denim + pink. And sad to say, we can't order H and M online in the US, b/c that scarf is so cool.

    Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday, and have a wonderful day.
