We are deep into winter now here in the UK and I've been feeling the cold a lot recently, since I've been working on average 40 - 50 hours a week I've just not had the time to go shopping and update the wardrobe with new winter wear but I decided to check out Lovedrobe and picked up a few items. Initially I was looking at Lovedrobe's dresses as I always buy a new dress for Christmas and New Years Eve but I had to keep reminding myself that I need new tops, jumpers and jackets not dress, leggings or jeans (all of which are overtaking my super tiny walk in wardrobe.)
So I ended up picking up four items which totalled to £70.20 and all four items were actually in the sale and would have cost £117. I am so happy with everything I got and I've already worn three of the items.
Koko Diamond Knit Jumper: £21 (was £35)
I do love a good chunky knit jumper and I was so excited when ordering this one. I did think it wouldn't keep me very warm as it has some holes but damn I was wrong, this jumper is near on perfect, it's so cozy and I was very toasted in it. Only downside is the fact the jumper comes come up small. I opted for a size bigger and it's a little tight on my bust but fine everywhere else, ideally it would fit better but I love it so much I won't bother returning it. The jumper is very soft, not itchy in the slightest and it's pretty flattering with its dip hem and round neck.
I actually wore my jumper today with my New Look jeans and Timberlands, I had a chilled day as it's my last day off before Christmas Day so I wanted to be comfy and warm, I had my hair up, basic make-up and I was ready to roll.
Koko Floral Print Bomber Jacket: £16.20 (was £27)
I know bomber jackets are so summer autumn but I just couldn't help myself, I've wanted one but I'd never pay full price so when I spotted this at £16.20 I just had to grab it before it sold out. The jacket itself is pretty good quality and a lot warmer than you'd think whilst seeing it online, it's also a lot prettier and so flattering. My only issue with the bomber is the fact it doesn't have pockets, this would actually be the most amazing jacket ever if it had pockets. This bomber is great for a dress down or dressing up look. I was rocking it yesterday with boots, a pair of skinnies and my blouse, I know I'll also be rocking it with my uniform when the weather picks up a little bit because I love it so much!

Lovedrobe Crochet Collar Blouse: £27 (was £45)
The second I spotted this blouse online I just fell in love with the crochet collar, it's something I've not actually seen before and thought it was pretty awesome. I actually have a thing for collars and statement necklaces at the moment and this crochet collar is perfect for that look. When I first saw it online I wasn't sure what colour it was but it's like a creamy/beige colour and goes really well with the floral bomber jacket. The one thing that I wasn't too sure about was the price - at £27 this is out of my normal price range but it is pretty high quality, it's a thick polyester material and unlike many of my cheaper alternatives it keeps you warm so it's perfect for summer/autumn and winter. I got normal shirt size which is a size up from my normal size (because we all know big boobs and shirts don't go) and it fits perfectly, it's pretty stretchy and very flattering. It was so flattering that I decided it would be perfect for my trip to Winter Wonderland yesterday, I just love the fact it covers my bottom and top of my thighs. This blouse is actually out of stock but they have loads of amazing tops and blouses.
Sourced Floral & Rings Print Tunic: £6 (was £10)
