I started my 2018 well, with a trip to the high street to find some quick, easy jumpers that I can throw on during these bleak months, whilst still feeling like "myself". By "myself" I mean I've made an effort. I enjoy making an effort in the sartorial department on a daily basis. It makes me feel like "me", and I take a healthy dose of pride in it. During the winter though, you would think the struggle to look "nice" whilst remaining practical would be difficult, but actually I find it the easiest. I love texture, faux fur, and chunky statement pieces which is so easy to pile on. Buy a couple of pairs of fake leather trousers, and few statement coats, a healthy polo neck collection and you're good to go, if that's your thing. Summer is the real struggle. I hate showing skin. I hate being exposed. I don't enjoy wearing dresses, and the anxiety that comes along every time the wind blows. I don't want to be done for indecent exposure. I don't have a criminal record to date. Let's keep it that way shall we?

This look is so simple and comfortable, and yet makes me feel like a well-groomed 80s mum with a  modern twist. Get yourself a pair of chunky statement earrings if you want to look like you've really made an effort, even on the most laziest of days.
