Fashion Forward: Dresses to Wear When the ‘Beast Of The East’ Leaves

As I look out of my window at the snow-covered streets of London, two thoughts come to mind.  The first is that the snow is beautiful and I am so happy the children get to experience snow play such as building snow men/women and snow ball fights.  My second thought is a polar opposite frustrated rant!  I can’t wait for this snow to disappear so that I can go back to pining for spring and walk around without looking like I am doing the moonwalk.

Weather reports tell us that by next week, the cold snap will be gone and we will return to normal weather patterns for this time of year. Today’s lookbook is a nod to the kind of outfits that I love wearing around this time of year.  Relaxed shaped dresses with long sleeves are perfect for gradually getting back in into the mind frame of wearing dresses again, after a long winter.  Their cut is also perfect for wearing fine and chunky knits underneath, thick tights below and coats above, as the weather still has a sharp cold bite that requires warm clothing.

I hope that you are enjoying the ‘beast of the east’s’ snow offerings and are making the most of it. On a side note, lots of the pieces I am wearing here are from Massimo Dutti. I am a big fan of their clothes and style aesthetic (their leather jackets are beautifully constructed like the green beauty I am wearing).  Their ‘mid season sale’ started yesterday so check out their website if you are planning on some retail therapy today.

Cheap and Cheerful: Supermarket Yellow Sweater Dress With a Black Leather Jacket

Hello lovely readers! It has become considerable colder in London during the course of this week and I have decided that the central heating in my house must remain functioning at all times.  My house is like a sauna, my family is wandering around minimally clothed and maximally annoyed but I am in a state of bliss!

Once cold weather arrives, sweater dresses are my favorite alternatives to jeans/trousers.  They are My Siteseasy to wear, keep me warm and there are a multitude of options to choose from. I picked up this solid mustard yellow dress at Sainsbury’s a few weeks ago and I love the pop of colour and sunshine vibes it brings to everyday winter dressing. I have paired it with black boots and a black leather jacket for a great day look.  The jacket is a hybrid leather jacket with a puffer style back and I love the versatility that the unusual style offers.

I went to Sainsbury’s yesterday and they are having a 25% off all Tu clothing (ends 5th December) at the moment. I cannot find this dress on their website anymore but I did see it in store at 50% off the original price making it a great purchase for a tenner!

I hope you enjoy the styling and have a lovely day.  As always, thank you so much for visiting my blog.
