Jazz hands...

Before this year I was never a big fan of jumpers. I was always warm and jumpers were just not convenient when I was frantically shedding layers when I came in from the cold. This year though, I have been drawn to them and I have steadily amassed a rather cosy collection. Paired with these oh so versatile shorts from good old H&M, I had a slightly warmer version of this outfit... 

Jumper: Primark, shorts: H&M, lace socks: Topshop, brogues: Marks & Spencer, necklace: Accessorize,  bag: vintage.
Paired with my oh so snuggly coat from Miss Selfridge, I was on to a winner! I saw this coat online when I was looking for a thin, warm, rainproof coat and the gold zip and faux fur convinced me that this was a worthy addition to my coat collection... 


For someone who was once completely scared by brogues, I have added another pair to my wardrobe very quickly! The glittery accent and muted metallic colour makes these the perfect party shoes, especially as I can dance in them all night! Originally I was going to wear the brogues without the socks but I thought they brought in the colour of the jumper and made the outfit look more 'fashiony'. It also had the added benefit of pushing me out of my comfort zone, which is no bad thing!


My favourite chunky necklace and my favourite rings , I simply can't get enough of gold jewellery at the moment, it looks so nice with all the rich warm colours around at this time of year!


You can't have sparkly 'jazz shoes' without some sparkly jazz hands to match! 


Would you wear sparkly brogues? Do you try to make your outfits more 'fashionable'?

I never used to be a fan of jumpers either, but this winter I can't seem to stop buying them!
Those shoes are AMAZING. In my opinion, you can never have too many pairs of sparkly shoes!

Have I mentioned how awesome you are lately? *JAZZHANDS* Ahem...

Snyway, looking fabulous my dear, I have a long time love for jumpers, because I get COLD at the moment, and although last year I struggled to aclimatise, the year before I was living in Germany- no central heating and -18C. Jumpers became very important. Preferably multiples!

I have to ask, are you BARE LEGGED? And if so, are you mad girl? It's COLD out there!

Yes! I once feared the brogue too but I've now embraced it. Yours are amazing! And I mention hair in pretty much every blog comment I ever make but yours looks so pretty here, oh to have hair that isn't lank. Is yours naturally that curly? JEL.
