Most of my updated winter clothes have been from supermarkets this winter, just sneakily picked up whilst shopping as if they don't count, (because I don't even have the time to make it to a shopping centre recently). I find George's knitwear in particular to be superior to the likes of Topshop, whose offerings are usually mishapen after one wash, as fashionable as they may be. This whole range is bloomin' fantastic, and here I am sharing a couple of ways to wear both a grey cape, AKA portable blanket, and a cosy cowl neck jumper.

As someone who too often falls into the ease of jeans and a jumper, I find it helps to pull a few key items to the forefront of my wardrobe, and base everything around those pieces for a while. Really, my new years resolution should be to downsize to a capsule wardrobe, but this works for now. Most recently, I've been reaching for this knitted skirt, also from a supermarket, and the Clarks biker boots as pictured, from Shoetique. You may not be able to tell from the photos, but they're actually fur lined. Practical, comfortable, and they look pretty badass, too. I find it hard to find more than two of those three options in a pair of shoes and particularly boots, and so always shell out for a pair of Clarks in winter (though these ones are in the sale now). I would say its worth it as they last years, but I do always manage to find an excuse to buy another pair the next year anyway! My point still stands!

Have you tried knitwear from George?
What about a portable blanket? ;)
