Baby it’s cold outside….

Oh baby, it’s cold outside!⛄️❄️⛄️❄️

I’ve been doing some online browsing for warm coats and boots. It’s time to wrap up guys, it’s time to wrap up warm!

The cold doesn’t agree with me, it seems to make my pain much worse! So at this time of year, I become a little obsessed with finding a new coat. A coat that keeps me warm, covers my bum, looks good and looks stylish!

These days it’s all about rocking comfort with style!

As far as boots go, I had to pack away the heels a while ago now. I used to love a stiletto, I mourn my stilettos and refuse to get rid of them, even though they just sit in my cupboard looking pretty. It’s not all bad though, there are some pretty cool flat boots out there!

Flat boots are great for anyone and everyone, especially once the icy weather starts. Flat boots are a necessity for those of us that walk with a stick or crutches. However comfy doesn’t have to mean boring, you can still rock the flats, looking just as good, if not better!

So as a salute to all my Spoonie Sisters out there, mums on the school run, Christmas shoppers and anyone else that wants to opt for comfort, here is a selection of fashion friendly winter style to add to your winter wish list.

There are some absolute bargains and there are a few sale items included, so snap them up quick before they go back to full price!


How gorgeous is this Black Brooch Coat £115 from RIver Island?!  I love the length and am loving the casual t-shirt and black trousers to dress the coat down. This coat could be dressed up or dressed down, for either work or play.

These boots were made for walking and that’s just what they’ll do….Look at that chunky sole, looks like they have a good grip on them too. These cool Cleated Workman Boots are an absolute bargain! Reduced from £22.99 to £17.99 from Select Fashion.

I had to include a parka, we all love a faithful parka when the days get cold! I picked this Khaki Green Faux Fur Trim Parka  £115 from River Island because the faux fur looks really thick and soft, there’s nothing worse than sparse and scraggly furry bits!


Who likes there feet to feel warm and cosy? I know I do and these Khaki Faux Fur Trim Biker Boots from New Look are another total bargain, reduced from £32.99 to £19.79! These boots are perfect for the school run, theres nothing worse than the freezing playground stomp at this time of year!

Whilst we are on the subject of total bargains, check out these beauties below!!  These Tie Up Suedette Feather Boots from are… guessed it £5!! £5 people! It’s hard to buy a decent pair of socks for that in some shops, let alone boots!! If you’ve not checked out this bargain bonanza of a site yet, go have a look!

This wouldn’t be my blog post without a little bit of leopard print, I’m a sucker for faux fur, especially leopard! I love this Faux Fur Jacket £79.99 from H&M. Faux fur, especially leopard print adds a cool chic edge to any outfit. This jacket would look just as good dressed up as it would dressed down with a pair of vintage look skinny jeans and Converse.

I wear my leopard print on the school run! Life’s too short to keep clothes for best and it’s one of the warmest coats I’ve owned…..not waterproof though….and yes, I’ve been rained on, on more than one occasion, not such a good look, I must admit!
