Style Picks: Bad Snowmance

So, I am currently writing this from bed. It is absolutely MISERABLE outside & freezing to boot. Whilst the rest of the UK is enjoying lovely, magical, fluffy snow, in Northern Ireland we are being subjected to torrents of rain and half-hearted sleet- so cold and horribly wet. I am so sad becase I LOVE snow, but we never get it here in Ireland- two years ago we got a load of beautiful snow for about two weeks, for the first time in decades, certainly as long as I could remember, and we've never had it since. So here I am, in my bed with the electric blanket cranked up as high as it goes, dreaming of a snowy wonderland, and more importantly, the beautiful clothes to go with it. Here are my picks for 3 wintery outfits- inspiration to help you stay warm AND stylish!


This one is a bit 'blogger-cliche' but then that's probably why I love it. Vintage camera? Check! Whimsical forest animals? Check! Peter Pan collar? Check! The blogger trifecta is complete. I like this outfit because I like being able to bring a sunny colour into my winter wardrobe but by keeping the other colours muted & wintery, it still feels seasonally appropriate. Plus I will take any excuse to wear a hat with a pom pom.



This outfit is a bit more casual- and I love the warm colour palette. Also loving that big furry collar on the parka- how amazing would that be to snuggle up to in the cold? I really love ear cuffs at the moment too- I bought a pack a couple of weeks ago but haven't really worn them out yet! I don't think I'm cool enough to wear ear cuffs- but I will keep persevering anyway, maybe someday they will look right!


This outfit is probably the most 'me' out of the 3, so it is obviously my favorite. I love black & white with little pops of colour, studs & various bits of hardware, and leopard print nails! I also got a bottle of Flora by Gucci for Christmas & I'm a bit obsessed with it- I have been known to spray a little on even after I get into my pjs just so I still smell of it. Also, how amazing is that big moonface ring? I NEED.

    1. I make them on Polyvore and just screen cap & copy it into Photoshop and then it's just a matter of adding text, etc. Easy! X
