High Neck and High Boots – Keeping Warm for Winter

Firstly, I must apologise for the slight change in appearance during this blog, the wind was so gusty I ended up taking my hair down as I couldn’t get a decent shot without getting swept away. My question is how do you make a dog lead look sexy? Well, my dog lead is fluorescent yellow so it can be a tad tricky. Unintentionally it became my accessory on a dog walk with my pup Oscar, along with some high knee boots and a red Osprey bag. This warm aesthetic is the way forward.

I’m totally into the fashion necks this season, winter is the BEST for the funky sleeves and high roll necks. H&M have brought out this adorable funnel neck jumper dress this season and although I’ve trailed their website it was nowhere to be found. Thank you ASOS for featuring something similar (and in plus). If you go in any shop at the moment the in trend seems to be polo neck, roll neck, funnel neck or high neck to keep our lovely little necks warm in the chill of winter. Side note, if you find any delicious places for more jumper dresses like this please leave me a note below… I want to stock up.

These cleated over the knee boots were found in Matalan for the total price of £35. I suggest you get yourself some ordered. Not only are they super stylish, but they’re lined with a fur trim. This keeps your legs nice and toasty when, like me, you’re wearing tights and it’s -5 out. I particularly like the heel and the back detailing of these. They only have a little heel, just supporting your feet properly and meaning you can walk a long way without a blister. The back has a slight elastic on at the stop and a stud detailing that just adds a look of ‘expensive’ to it.

P.s. doesn’t Oscar the mini schnauzer look adorable catwalking with me? No Shrinking Violet

The knitted jumper dress with funnel detailing, beside from the funnel neck I’ve oogled over is lush material. Not at all itchy and really cosy and warm. I’m wearing it over tights for this post but they could easily be swapped out for leggings/jeans/leather pants. What’s more is this creamy white colour is a classic, it will not go out of style and as it is just off white you won’t be worrying about it looking dirty in a year or so after too many washes.

Queue the hair change: No Shrinking Violet

I suppose this can only add to my blog, but you can style this look two ways with your hair. Hair up to fully expose the neck of this gorgeous jumper, or hair down to add to the cosy imagery.

I paired it with my Red Osprey bag just to add a splash of colour to the image. I’m definitely a huge lover of muted tones and warm browns but what the heck, let’s throw a red bag into the mix and see what’s occurin’.

What jumpers are you lusting over for Winter?
