How to layer up and keep warm. It was a lovely sunny day when we took these photographs a few weeks ago but still chilly with a very cold wind. At the time I was wearing a thermal vest under my grey sweater. I also had a pair of leggings under my wide trousers. I am a great fan of thermal underwear. It means that you can continue wearing lighter fabrics for longer and still keep warm. JohnLewis&Partners have a very good selection as do MarksandSpencer.
We also lose a lot of heat from our heads so I like to wear berets and hats in the colder weather. I bought my pink pearl beret a few years ago from St. Tropez market. &Otherstories have a pretty lilac one. Etsy has an excellent selection.
My grey sweater is from HopeFashionuk from last years collection. I love their sweaters. They are made from excellent fabric and if washed carefully keep their shape well. They have a good selection this year in lovely Autumnal colours.
Sometimes a full-length puffa can seem too much when the sun is shining. I have worn this jacket a lot this year when I need to pop out to the shops or go for a quick stroll.
As usual most of my clothes are several seasons old as I try to ”shop my wardrobe’ as much as possible. If you like the look I have put together a selection of similar items below.

With regards to BLACK FRIDAY which seems to be well underway already this year, I will put a few links and ideas below. I intend to concentrate on items I have already included in this blog as I feel that we have enough stuff in our wardrobes. Having said that, if you have been watching an item such as an expensive coat or a pair of boots now might be the time. Sales can also be a good opportunity to buy gifts.

My favourite skincare and makeup brand LOOKFABULOUSFOREVER is currently offering 20% off all their products. A good time to stock up on products you love.

My blog schedule may be interrupted due to the fact that I lost my balance doing an exercise class last week, fell over and twisted my wrist badly. My arm is currently in a sling and I am writing this post with one finger.
