Packing Away Winter?

Over the weekend I have been thinking that it is time to pack away thick coats, thick cardigans, boots, gloves and winter scarf. I mean it has been weeks since I brought summer clothing down from the attic. Not just because I went on holiday, but because it has been some really nice spring days. But over the weekend it was very varied weather and a couple of times I felt so cold that I had to put a coat on and my thick cardigans were my rescue at a cold football match. And I do remember my mums everyday advice growing up "put a warmer jacket on, the spring air is so deceiving". And I don't want to be sick so I try to be mindful of this.

So the other day when I went for a walk in the park I was wearing a coat I had forgotten I had. It's at least three if not four years old, but I bought it from Yours Clothing and it is lovely. It has embroidery all over and feels really luxurious. It's black so it goes with everything. I chose to team it with a white dress I got from a clothes swap I had with Leah earlier this year.

I had not worn this coat for at least two winters so it was a nice find. I'm almost sorry it is getting warmer so I can't wear it more in the time to come, but winter will be upon us soon enough so I will pack it away for now.

The dress I'm wearing is from F&F and is made of a quite thick fabric. It makes it so great for the cooler days of the spring so it is a good addition to my spring wardrobe.
The belt I'm wearing is one I bought in a charity shop last year. It's made of several rows of pearls on elastic with a quirky wood buckle. It's not the most secure belt I own, but it adds a bit of personal style to a plain dress.

Wearing ankle boots from Ebay that cost me £10!! They are lovely and soft and the colour is lovely. Ebay is my go to place for bargains.

My tights are from Tesco and are grey. I like Tesco tights as they are quite roomy. I wear a size 22 in bottoms and Tesco tights in XL are a great fit. I wouldn't say they are as good as Big Bloomers Tights, but a very cheap and good alternativ.

I will definitely start to pack away my coats, boots and hats/scarves/gloves, but I will keep my ticker cardigans for now. I do need the little extra warmth they give me. I just hope the summer will soon be here so I can go camping and wear my lovely summer dresses.

Have you packed the winter clothes away yet?
