Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring! | 7 Favourite Winter Looks.

My 7 favourite Winter outfits

Winter is slowly loosening its grip on Scotland.
Plants are emerging.
The daffodils are beginning to unfurl.
It has finally stopped raining!
{For the moment}
The sun is shining and I am full of optimistic energy.

This is the perfect time to look forward to Spring, and back on some of my favourite Winter outfits.

Do you agree with my choices?

My Winter Favourites:

1. How to wear leggings.

This outfit was inspired by my love of comfort (and layering).
However, it did spark lots of thought on the subject of leggings as trousers.
And, lead to a post about the problem with leggings, and how to wear them without looking (too) sloppy!

Read the original post to find out how to choose the perfect top and shoes to wear with your leggings.

2. White coat! In Winter?

This statement coat made me feel like I should have been an extra, in Dr Zhivago.
So even snowed for the occasion!

Read the original post to find out how I got this coat (for next to nothing) and where I went that night.
I bet you can't guess!

3. Multicoloured faux fur and peep toes.

This outfit was inspired by my (sometimes) narrow minded attitude to shopping.
I found this coat (and these boots) in unexpected places, for me anyway.

Read the original post to find out how I got this amazing fur coat and why we all need to keep an open mind when buying new clothes.

4. Trying a new colour.

This look started with a totally alien colour for me!
I decided it was high time I tried something out of my usual colour spectrum.

I also realised the joy (and importance) of "bookending"....find out what on earth I am on about, in the original post!

5. Too old for a floral jumpsuit?

Are we ever "Too old"?
Can we dress "Too young"?

This slightly OTT floral jumpsuit made me wonder....Should I be wearing a jumpsuit, over 40?

Read the original post to find out what prompted these questions and what I think about the issue.

6. Wearing vintage....with attitude!

This post started off talking about wearing vintage in a modern way...until I realised how 'OLD' everything in this outfit was.

Read the original post to find out how I wore vintage in a not-so modern way....with my old clothes.
And, why we all need a little attitude!

7. Welly Weather!

During the early Winter months we had a seriously prolonged period of torrential rain.
OOTD posts were on hold and I was getting pretty down about it.

I finally persuaded my hubby to come outside with me to shot what I like to wear in miserable weather.
He hid behind the building (protecting my camera) to take this shot.
