COMPLETE HIGH STREET GUIDE TO A/W 2014'S WARDROBE...


coats
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12

I've been putting together a guide of high street key items this winter. It's my favourite coats, knits, leather trousers, shoes, shirts, skirts, trousers and ankle boots. After being a mum I've changed my style and I'm starting to build a new wardrobe. I bought myself all the coats that I'll need this winter (1- 3- 4 & 9) - I'm also crushing over no. 2, but I might have bought one to many coats already...

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12

In winter you just can't get around knitted sweaters - and this year's trend is the bigger the better, and I'm loving the trend. I've been buying my sweaters a size or two bigger than I normally would. I bought a few of these ones already ( 2 ,3, 10, 11, 12) - but when sales start I'll be going after 5, 6, 8 & 9 - these are all classics that you can use next year too and some even into spring and summer - I'm all about classics.

trousers
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8

A pair of leather or faux leather trousers are also a must during winter - they are both warm and goes with everything - and I like the more edgy look. They look amazing both with a big knit and a shirt. My favourite must be nr 5 - the fit will suit most bodies.

Shoes...I believe everyone should own a pair of loafers, a pair of slip ons, a pair of pointed flats and a pair of sneakers. I'm actually in need of one of each pair, as I don't own any... My favourites are 3, 5, 10, 13 & 14.

When it comes to shirts I like a mix of oversized and fitted ones. I added one that's not high street (5), but it's just so beautiful. I now own almost half of these, but I'm still on the look for the oversized striped H&M shirt in the last row. Again my choices are classics and most can be used in spring even summer too.

As I've showed before, I'm totally fallen for knitted trousers and I do believe everyone should own a pair - even if just to run around in at home. They are so comfy. I also love knitted skirts - I would love one in wool and cashmere, but haven't seen any around that are affordable, so found all these at Zara and they are super comfy. Wide legged trousers are also something you can't get around this year - but they won't fit everyone - I've tried some, but they just don't suit my curvy body - they will look best on thinner girls with long legs - to fit me they must me high-waisted like the last pair as they will make the legs look longer.

shoes

Ankle boots...I bought my first pair last week - I always thought they weren't for me, but as my style has changed I now love them. I bought a pair from Jones Bootmaker (nr 7) and they are really comfy. Since I practically never wear heels I got a flat pair, but if I had to get a pair of heeled ankle boots it would be the ones from Topshop in the last row.

A pair of over the knee boots are also something that I believe every woman should have in her shoe collection in winter. - Super easy to throw on and looks beautiful with leggings and a oversized knit. I prefer the flat kind, as the high heeled ones can be a little too much in my opinion. 

Hope that you are inspired to get your winter wardrobe together - xx

THIS WEEK'S OUTFIT...


wish list

Cecilie Copenhagen shirt / Zara skirt / Jane Konig necklace / Balenciaga city / Mango shoes

I'm totally in love with Cecilie Copenhagen's designs made from Keffiyeh scarves and this colour is just so beautiful. Would wear it with leather trousers or a maxi skirt like this one. I'm still wishing for a Balenciaga city or velo and that Jane Konig necklace engraved with an A for Adam. The pointy flats from Mango has been sold out for a while, but still hoping they will come back in stock.

THE BABYLONIA BB-SLING...

This review is long overdue, but better late than never... Before the review I want to let you know that this is my honest opinion and I wouldn't do a review on something I don't love. I was given a BB-sling in Grey Violet by Babylonia, but loved the sling so much that we bought the Black Beans ourselves too, which fit almost all my outfits - and we still want to look cute, when babywearing...

The sling is made from 100% organic cotton made in a fair trade project in India. The fabric is soft yet gives optimal support, when carrying your baby. We've only been wearing Adam in the Cradle and Heart to Heart position with his legs tugged into the fabric, but we're soon going to do the heart to heart with his legs outside, the Hip and the Buddha, where he faces the world. The sling really is versatile and we really love ours. You can be babywearing until baby is 3-4 years old, and I can't wait to be babywearing Adam next spring and summer, since I mostly use it at home now that it's colder out.

We have been using our BB-sling since Adam was born (I even brought him home from hospital in it), and we could now not live without it. When he is upset or fussy or if he can't fall asleep, we'll be wearing him and he literally falls asleep within minutes. I also always bring it, when I go for walks with him in his pushchair, in case he gets fussy or just want to be near me, and it has been helpful loads of times, when we go shopping. It's also perfect for travelling and we're definitely bringing ours with us, when we are going to Denmark on holiday next month. 

If you are thinking about babywearing then you should go for it. We really love it and I've never heard of anyone, who didn't. I especially like this one, since it's

- Easy to bring in your bag as it doesn't take up more room than a big scarf
- Baby will calm down within minutes, since he feels close to you
- Baby is sitting in a M position, which stimulates development of baby's hips
- It's made from 100 % organic cotton 
- You can wear your baby in many different positions 
- It's a cute little accessory 
- You'll get super many aww's, when you are out and about (I sure have)

Babylonia also produces other kinds of slings like the Tricot-slen, which I'm thinking about trying out too.  They are each €65 online and you'll also find them in John Lewis at £55. Visit Babylonia HERE

THIS WEEK'S OUTFIT..


wishlist
Top Zara / Scarf LaLa Berlin / Skirt Zara / Watch Michael Kors / Bracelet Claire Anastasia / Sneakers Adidas

A couple of days ago I posted about, which sneakers to get and one of my favourite (affordable) pair were these grey suede adidas. I'd love to wear them with a ladylike outfit like this to keep it casual but still chic. There's a watch on this week's wish list too - I really need one soon, but I might need some help deciding, so will put all my favourites in a post soon. I'm still also really loving grey - it's just such a beautiful colour.
