What I Wore // Winter Warmth

Cardigan - Primark
Jumper - Next
Skirt - Topshop
Socks - Primark
Bag - River Island
Necklace - Zara Taylor 
Ring - Thomas Sabo
Wellies - Hunter 'Shoreditch'

I can't believe how warm this cardigan is. I picked it up for around £15-£20, which could be considered expensive by Primarks standards, but its incredibly thick and cosy. The thing I hate most about cold weather is the inconsistency in temperature whenever you're planning to go somewhere. You could wrap up warm, prepared for the arctic, but then as soon as you step inside you're suddenly boiling, gasping for air! You don't take all of your layers off because its a lot of effort to carry them, then you start to sweat and wonder if you can really take your layers off at all now. Just me? 
Dan and I popped to the Centre:MK and this cardigan kept me warm enough for the short time we were outside and comfortable enough whilst browsing shops. Its nice to find a happy medium.

I spotted this bag in River Island and snapped it up, adding to my never ending pile of black handbags. Its simple, but it has so many compartments! I have an uncontrollable fear of losing things (probably due to the fact that my mum constantly went on about the importance of not losing my expensive hearing aids as a kid), so compartments are a must for me, as, with my hearing aids alone, the contents of my bag are worth thousands of pounds - Scary!
 I was the same when I was looking for a new car - If it didn't have lots of compartments and cup holders especially, I didn't want it. I know, I'm odd. Anyway, I've given up on the flimsy Accessorize bag and taken to this compartment-fest now. 

Also, if you've ever had any thoughts about buying Hunter wellies - Get them. They're everything that wellies aren't supposed to be. Comfortable, warm, and stylish. 

Stay warm!
