2015 was a year of many highlights for me, the greatest part being in September when I moved to London. Over the past few weeks, I have spent time at home for Christmas break which I really enjoyed; the quietness of my neighbourhood gave me a lot of time to relax. Though after settling into 2016, I was massively excited to return to London yesterday. Ironically, the typical frosty weather that one anticipates for Christmas didn’t occur, and instead I’ve found the temperature to be dropping more and more each day into the new year! Nothing suits cold and frosty weather more than grey and white colours, and so it is the month of January which inspired this weeks look for me.
I loved the summer trend of sleeveless waistcoats, so opted to wear one despite the cold weather! As long as it is paired with warm layers underneath, I think a long waistcoat is really suited to winter. Raf Simons’s Dior Vinyl boots were the statement shoe on the runway last year, and so I was thrilled to find a similar pair for myself as they are so different to any other boots that shops are selling at the moment. I find that fitted boots compliment wide legged trousers really well, and I was so happy with how they looked here as they really emphasised the culotte shape of the jumpsuit I paired them with.
I loved wearing this look on my last day at home as I visited my local park and also carried out some much needed retail therapy. Revision for my exams (which are next week, oh my gosh) has taken over the week for me, so the break was certainly needed! Let me know what you think of the look, and I hope you’re all enjoying the new year!
