All of a sudden it’s turned bitterly cold, looking back at these photos taken only a few days ago it’s hard to believe I felt so warm & snug in this few layers, especially when today even the thought of venturing out in anything less than a duvet is unbearable! I do love autumn & winter, but days like today when it’s been chucking it down all morning & so ridiculously windy too, make me want to just curl up inside with Nico, my big fluffy robe & lots of warm comfort food!

This AllSaints cardigan is one of my favourite pieces to wear when it’s chilly though, there’s nothing better than physically being able to wrap yourself up, it’s like a huge fluffy hug when it’s miserable outside. I love that there are so many options for wearing it too, it’s basically a long rectangle with sleeves, so you can wrap it & drape it around yourself however you like. I’m still finding new ways to wear it even now!

Eksempel is another brand I discovered thanks to ASOS. I’d never heard of it before, but saw this dress (heavily discounted!) in the sale & although it’s just a basic tank dress, the fabric really drew me to it & I ended up getting it. It’s another one of those pieces that’s quickly become a staple in my wardrobe, with lots of people complimenting it or having to have a feel of it! I love the way the leathery jersey transforms it from a boring black tank dress into something just that little bit more special.

    I actually thought the wrap part of your cardigan was a scarf. And i know what you mean, the weather can just turn so quickly – I’m lucky to be on the other receiving end of the weather, for us the weather has turned around to be so nice.

    Anyway, you look gorgeous in black, like usual!

    You actually have the best clothes ever, I’m in love with your wardrobe! Not fair. ;) I love how versatile the AllSaints cardigan is, and it looks so lovely and warm too! It’s definitely plummeted in temperature hasn’t it?! Nothing except five million layers will do now. Bleh! xx

    Eurgh yes I hate rainy weather! Snuggling indoors is the only option when it’s like that. Loveeeely and unique outfit as always, the material of your dress is so unusual. That cardi looks so warm and snug too, I went into All Saints the other day and wanted to steal everything haha xxx

      Hahah! I feel like that everytime I go in there, it makes my bank account sad everytime I buy something though! I’d love to have enough cash to just go in & be like ‘I’ll have that, that, that, that…’ ;)

    You look fantastic, you wear black so well! I love the shoes <3 I know what you mean the weather is so horrible! I just want to dive back under the duvet and hide until the sun comes back…!

    You have the best looks in black, you just know how to style black on black to perfection! I think of your style and is very All Saints, elegant, Gothic, minimal. You’d be perfect ambassador for this brand!

      Aww, shall we swap?! ;) I know what you mean though, in the Summer I was moaning it was too hot & sticky & now it’s Winter I’m complaining that it’s too cold! I wish it could just stay as Spring/Autumn forever, the weather is perfect for me then!

    Stephanie, I ADORE this outfit. Fierce! The cardigan wrap worked so well with the dress.

    loving that wrap cardi steph! i have something similar from BCBG but much much prefer the heavier gauge of your knit!

  18. Posted 27.11.2012 at 8:58 am | Permalink

    Great cardi! I thought it was a scarf at first haha :P And can I just say how envious I am of your hair? That’s exactly what I try to do most mornings, to little success.

    Such a cool cardigan! Your eyes look lovely!

    Did anyone notice the atrocious thumb?

      Yes, I have clubbed thumbs. They’re not the prettiest, but I hardly think they’re ‘atrocious’…
