Looking out of the window all I can see is big snow flakes falling onto very wet ground. The weather has been so cold and wet this weekend I've only left the flat to walk Bernard and even he wasn't that impressed with this cold snap! It has been one of those weekends full of box sets and eating comfort food, whilst trying to stay warm as our boiler has broken. If I'm honest I've been chilling in my snuggly furry two piece that Joe’s mum bought me for Christmas and not really felt like taking any photos of outfits.

I'm not going to lie this cold weather doesn't really float my boat. I find myself in a typical uniform of jeans and jumpers paired with trainers or heeled boots when I'm feeling adventurous. When I get home it's a whole other story with fleecy PJ's and my super soft dressing gown for coziness. While I love my uniformed look from day to day I needed a break from the usual. Leaving the denim and grey jumpers behind and adding some much needed colour to brighten up my daily look.

To encourage myself out of my daily uniform I purchased a couple of new tops from Mango. The first being the white sweater from my last blog post and this seventies inspired stripe top. For this one I felt inspired to re style an old outfit from nearly a year ago that I wore whilst out in Majorca. Taking out the grey t-shirt and adding in this top created a whole new look. No-one has tonnes of money to be buying loads of new clothes at this time of year. Instead I opted for this top to inject some newness into my looks. What I didn't realise until after I bought this top is that it goes with anything in my wardrobe, which is always I lovely surprise. Here I have gone for a full seventies look, digging out my beloved red suede boots and my number purchase one this winter, the teddy bear coat.

If you are feeling bored or tired of your wardrobe I encourage you to add in small details as it creates a whole new look. I’d have picked out some pieces below, to hopefully inspire you guys.
