ACCESSORY APPRECIATION

Hello again,

We are all pretty quick to complain about winter, aren’t we? The drastically low temperatures, the long, dark evenings, that bitter wind… But, winter doesn’t always have to strictly be all negative. There are many positives about winter, just like all seasons – the beautiful frost in the sunshine, the festivities, and if we’re talking fashion… You can accessorise to your hearts desire…

Prior to this post, I’ve expressed my enthusiasm for an autumn/winter palette; I adore the shades of rusty orange, beige, greys, you name it. But the best thing about it is taken your desired palette and combining a sublime arrangement of accessories. It could be a scarf, it could be a bag, it could be a pair of gloves or perhaps even the colour of your socks… The beauty of it is, that the cold temperatures allow you to experiment all you like. I’m an avid fan of berets this season – as are most blogger gals – I often get self conscious that a hat fails to suit me, but with a range of colours out there fit to cater for any outfit you cook up in your head, your inhibitions soon fade and what you’re left with is an ensemble to be proud of.

For me, there’s nothing quite like a big old scarf to hide behind when you’re battling those harsh winter winds. I bought this oversized beast a few years ago while I was in college, and I pretty much lived in it during the cold months of early lessons and dark mornings. A classmate used to often tease me whenever I had it on…

“Got your blanket on today then?!”

You bet I have, mate.

As much as I adore the warmer months, you don’t get the same sort of security as you do when sporting your favourite oversized winter coat. Of course, there are endless arrays of accessories to be worn in the summer, but a beret combined with a near-matching scarf is one of my new favourite combinations to date. Having said that, I am eagerly excited to see some blossom burst through the trees!
