School Run Style – Winter Fashion

November 13, 2015

As unpredictable the British weather is I am quite thankful to live somewhere that has such distinct seasons. As much as I loved making my summer style wishlist when Autumn and Winter roll around I am ready to cosy up in comfy knits and warm trousers. I love searching out the perfect bobble hat and the warmest scarf, new stylish winter boots and the perfect coat to see me through the colder months. Being a stay at home mum means that quite often I can get lazy about my wardrobe, thinking that no one will see me other than maybe the postman means it is easy to be tempted to wear my favourite pyjama bottoms all day. However, since Lucas has started school I do have to leave the house twice a day so it gives me a good excuse to look presentable, even though we do walk to school in all weathers.

Here are some of my top picks for winter school run style – I’ve tried to go for a mix of practical and fashionable. I must admit that there are days on the walk to school when only a massive waterproof coat and wellies will do but then there are those perfect, sunny, winter days when you want to look stylish while being wrapped up warm from head to toe.

School Run Style Winter Fashion

1. Metallic Bobble Snood – Accessorize £22.00

2. Navy Zip Pocket Tunic – New Look £24.99

3. Black Leather Look Sleeve Coat – New Look £54.99

4. Clarks Fianna Holly Ankle Boots – Brantano £60.00

5. Grey Cable Knit Tights – New Look £6.99

6. Red Skinny Jeans – Zara £25.99

7. Black Knitted Jumper – H&M £14.99

As I get older I am trying to keep the words ‘capsule wardrobe’ in my head whenever I shop. I am always on the look out for clothes and shoes that can make a few different outfits. I’d rather pay a little more for something that is good quality and will go with everything.

A scarf is top of my list as the colder weather comes around, I buy a new one (or two) each year as I think you can never have too many. The navy tunic from New Look is such a lovely colour and would go great with the grey tights just as well as it would with leggings or jeggings. The big winter coat from New Look and the leather boots from Brantano are my practical picks – I love the style of the coat and this fact it has a big hood for those days I’m caught in a freak rain shower. The boots are just perfect for me, I would wear them with dresses, trousers, leggings, jeans and they look like they would serve me well in all weathers – I hate having cold feet! I just had to add a bit of colour with the red skinny jeans from Zara alongside the knitted jumper from H&M that could be dressed up or down.

What about you, what do you love about winter fashion?

    Love the boots and coat! I am a massive fan of beanie and bobble hats and big chunky scarves, as you say you can never have too many! X

      I know, some days it is just too much effort isn’t it when you have to get the little ones ready too. New Coat and boots always spruce it up a bit though 🙂 xx

    I can definitely relate, and the school run weather has been grim this week. I absolutely love those boots! X

    Hayley I love bobble hats and snuggly scarfs so I am totally with you there, and I love my winter wardrobe, snuggly and warm and comfortable. I think it is important to feel good as it gives you confidence and you always look fab x

      I would love to say I look amazing but I walk to school so I mostly look windswept! Some mums really do look fantastic but I love that there is a whole range of parents at the school gates. I love the red trousers too, would brighten up those cold winter days! xx
