Yep. it's winter alright. Time for uncool, padded jackets. I have my Uniqlo puffa on standby to wear under everything I own, but also bought this in a panic buy before I went away - I was looking for an alternative to the ubiquitous parka, and this fits the bill.

And I don't think we even need to sing the praises of the fluffy poloneck - it's basically the only jumper I want to wear all winter.
The jeans are M.i.h 'Bridge' jeans, I've never been one for a designer skinny jean but this high-waisted pair are everything. I feel so pulled in and I keep reaching for them over my Topshop ones and they don't lose their fit after a few wears. They really make a difference.
I also think it's time to have a jeans and boots talk. Up until now I've managed to get away with it, but let's face it - skinny jeans look better with a bit of flesh on show. A slither between jeans and boots or a touch of bare ankle.
I'm not sure I can get away with it for much longer. But I'm just not convinced skinny jeans look good tucked into ankle boots and definitely not over the top...so perhaps it's flares for me, or skirts and tights - any ideas, keep me posted. Until then, I shall keep freezing my little ankles off.
