FALLING SHORT

with only one month of winter to go, I'm very much looking forward to the prospect of leaving the darkness and my warm winter jackets behind for another year. I can't believe I'm saying this but I've actually grown a bit tired of the "all black" aesthetic that has taken over my life, winter's dark enough as it is.

having said that, two of my favourite purchases this season are black. these

Reserved leather chelsea boots

and this

H&M black, fluffy jumper

are my go-to pieces this winter as they're ridiculously cozy, and what else do you need in winter?

  15. I know what you mean, wearing all black all the time can get too dreary after a while. I feel positively goth! Can't wait for some brights and pastels

    COOCOO FOR COCO

  16. I kinda get you, black is great to wear but it also makes everything EVEN MORE dark. But you're looking amazing anyhow!
