Well, here we are nearly at the end of what has seemed like an interminable January. Then all of a sudden it snowed last weekend. At least it created a change of scenery. It was cold but I braved the chill to take some photos in the gardens in front of our house. What to wear? I thought that I would jazz up a pair of plain joggers with some bright colours. I am wearing a thermal vest and leggings under my outfit for extra warmth. You can see a selection that I recommend in a previous post here.
My joggers are from MeandEm. They are the flat-fronted style. They do come up a bit large so you might like to size down or if you are between sizes I would recommend that you order two sizes and send one back (they have free returns). Me&Em joggers are a bit pricey however they wear very well. I bought a pair at the beginning of Autumn. I have lost count of how many times I have washed them and they have kept their shape and still look good.
I wanted to brighten up the outfit so I have added my favourite colour pink. You could just as easily choose a bright red or whatever colour suits you best and helps to lift your spirits. Pink hoodie from Cos Reduced in the sale from £69 to £34.50 but only large size left.
One of the most useful items for layering, when the weather is cold, is a padded gilet. In my opinion the best ones come from Uniqlo . They pack really well and I have several colours.
I bought my lovely large leopard print shawl from St.Tropez market. Sadly not able to get there this year. My ankle boots are by Gabor (similar).
