Keep warm, stay chic
This week I've been layering to the max. Mostly Uniqlo Heattech underneath lightweight jumpers, but I've got my eye on this HotSquash thermal, keyhole top. Quite a neat way to keep warm and still look like you've got a waistline, don't you think? And I do love a knee-length sock, when it's chilly. Cashmere if poss. Eric Bompard and Johnstons of Elgin both do a top-notch stripy version. Brilliant when wearing (as I have been most of the week) skinny jeans tucked into knee boots. I know, how very Kate Middleton. I've been rocking around, quite literally, on my Rockport wedges. Much higher than I normally go - but incredibly comfortable. All. Day. Long.
As it's snowing quite heavily in London, I plan to stay indoors, a lot, this weekend. If only I had one of these cellular blankets from Scarlet and Argent. A lifestyle brand founded by Hainsworth, luxury fabric supplier to the Queen, whose cloth is made in a Yorkshire mill and used by Brit designers such as Paul Smith and Christopher Raeburn. I could totally channel Care Home Chic with this draped over my legs. But then, That Is My Age.
How will you be keeping warm this weekend?
