Hello lovelies! Hope you all had a smashing Christmas yesterday with your families and have now fully recovered from the food coma that undoubtedly ensued after a day full of eating and drinking – no other way to do it!
SO, for today’s post I was aiming to throw together a look mostly using items that I had purchased last season & making them work in our current winter weather..
I feel like it’s too easy to throw your hands up at the start of a season and go “Right, time for a whole new wardrobe”. We’ve all done it – heck, I know I certainly have.
With so many trends being recycled over seasons in the last couple of years, I was determined to try and be a little bit more savvy with my clothes this winter and get more wear out of some of the pieces I had purchased in the summer..
I loved the colour combination for this look – the tan trousers with the grey, white & blue tones really made the outfit pop on a crisp winter day.
I teamed up a pair of cropped tan trousers I had purchased from Topshop with a blue collared shirt from H&M and a gorgeous grey knitted wool jumper from the Debranded Outlet (If you follow me on instagram, you’ll already know that I have been raving about the place!). I slipped on a pair of white pointed heels from New Look & accessorised with a camel coloured fedora from Rag & Bone, Ray Ban Wayfarers and a stunning shoulder bag from DVF.
To me, this outfit was practical and cosy for current weather while still being chic and stylish – and it’s all old season!
If you fancy having a dabble in reworking some amazing pieces from previous seasons into your current wardrobe, then I would definitely recommend heading down to Debranded. Located inside the Observatory in Slough High Street in Berkshire (35 min train journey from Central London) and situated directly opposite the TOPSHOP outlet, Debranded is a GOLD MINE for any bargain hunter. I’m not allowed to name the brands they house for various reasons but they are BIG. Any keen shopper will be able to spot the original retailer from some tell tale hints on the tags… Think of the big three on the high street – yup, all there and then some! In fact, there are even a couple of high end brands in there.. I can’t say much more than that I’m afraid! All you need to know that items are on sale with up to 75% off and Debranded refreshes it’s stock on a daily basis. When I ‘popped in’ for a quick visit and a chat with the brains behind the brand, I was totally blown away and left with a fair few bags! (Keep an eye out for a haul video..)
If you’re ever in the area, make sure you pay them a visit and let me know what bargains you pick up!
So, did you guys like today’s look? Have you been reworking some of your summer clothes into your winter wardrobe?
Thanks for reading my loves!
Until the next post
