I spend most of my 'fashion' money during winter as I prefer to buy jumpers and jackets instead of crop tops and shorts. As I live in a country that is cold pretty much 80% of the year, it's no surprise that my closet is mainly made up of knitwear and any sort of warm, oversized piece of clothing you can get. Shopping for those items can be very expensive though, as some of the nicer jumpers out there can cost well above £30 and who can afford to buy a load of them each year? Not this gal.
I love shopping in the sales and also finding sites that stock current lines at a cheaper price. I have featured MandM Direct on my blog before and this time I picked a few more items to show you how easy it can be to find great pieces for all sort of occasions and different types of people. Maybe if you're looking for some presents this could work out as a great site to check out. Thought I'd show you my little haul that I'm doing in collaboration with them in case you wanted to see some inspo for winter fashion picks. I hope you like the bits I got and let me know if you find anything on their site you may have your eye on!
For the Knit Lovers
Can a person have too many cream cable jumpers*? Nope. I added a new one with the classic ribbed collar, cuffs and hem that keep me extra warm and add a nice detail. There's a navy version online too but I have been into white and cream lately as you may have noticed from previous posts. The jumper fits true to size but if you like a looser fit definitely go a size up.
For the Outwear Lovers
The last time I got a parka* was ages ago, so this year I decided it was time to finally get a new one. I'm happy to spend money on outwear as I really get the cost per wear but this number by Firetrap was a bargain. From £119.99 down to £54.99. I suggest going bigger size-wise if you own some really chunky jumpers and you intend to wear them underneath this.
For the Boots Lovers
I have a thing for boots, especially black pairs. They're always useful, easy to style and I wear them almost all year round hence my collection is always growing at an alarming rate. This new pair by Firetrap* is perfect for rainy days as the oily suede is not delicate and can be worn even with the roughest weather outside.
For the Gym Buddies
I needed to get a fresh pair of New Balance trainers*, of course all monochrome, as recently I bought some gym clothes. I feel like new workout pieces help me stay motivated to exercise during winter even though I have been lacking a little recently as I hurt my foot wearing heels on a night out. The disaster.
This pair is so comfortable and easy to run with as well as it feels like it pushes your feet right in the air. Honestly impressed as I tend to stick with Nike but they can be quite expensive and £34.99 is a good price for me.
For the Party People
This gorgeous jumpsuit* from the brand Only is the bomb. From £49.99 down to £14.99, it's a gorgeous addition to the closet and it's classic. Personally I'm not much into dresses and I feel way more comfortable wearing jumpsuits like this one as it's simple, timeless and comfortable. Since it's winter I like to pair it up with some sleek sock boots but of course it can work just as well with stilettos. If you like to jazz up your outifits I can see a nice belt being added as an extra statement piece.
