My Essential Winter Accessories

If there's something I don't talk about very often on my blog it's accessories (and a whole host of other things actually but that's besides the point). So I thought I'd talk about the accessories I've been loving the most throughout winter and style them with an outfit (which wasn't hard seeing as I've been styling them with pretty much every outfit I've been wearing anyway). There aren't actually very many - it would seem I skimp on the accessories front during winter. I think that's just because I tend to be wrapped up in big jumpers that would cover up any jewellery and also, let's face it, I'd probably rather spend an extra few minutes cosied up in my warm bed than accessorising. Anyway, here are the few I've been obsessing over lately:



A blanket scarf | Wearing one of these is basically as close as I can get to going outside wrapped up in a blanket, which is what I'd really like to do in winter if it were at all practical/socially acceptable. This is actually the only one of these that I own and I'd really like to add to my collection (if you can call one a collection) because I do wear this all the time. Fun anecdote (a.k.a. not an interesting story at all) - I accidentally left it in a fish and chip shop when it was quite new and actually nearly cried, but IT'S OK GUYS it was still there when we went back.




Little leather backpack | These seem to be everywhere at the moment and I absolutely love them, especially mine. It's a little bit like a Mary Poppins bag because it fits a deceivingly large amount of stuff in it even though it looks quite petite. It's also just so darn pretty and also practical - backpacks are seriously underrated because they leave both of your hands free and don't even hurt your shoulders like the evil that are one shoulder bags. Winning.


Sleeper earrings | Are they still even called sleeper earrings? They were when I got my first pair about age eleven when it was a pretty exciting concept because not only could you just leave them in and comfortably sleep in them, but they were the only kind of hoop earring allowed at school. I've worn these a lot over winter because they go with everything, they look cute and you really can just leave them in forever and ever without thinking about it. The lazy girl's dream. Fun fact though, when someone is taking a photo of them in macro mode on your camera your ear hole looks kinda gross. Soz.

What accessories have you been loving recently?

  13. Those earrings are super cute! I actually struggle a lot to find earrings that I can wear all the time as sleeping in them is seriously uncomfortable, so I really need to invest in a pair like yours! I left my favourite scarf in my university's faculty building the other day and RAN LIKE THE WIND back there when I realised, I was so upset at the thought of it being lost! Thankfully, like your blanket scarf, it was still there waiting for me though! Phew! Thanks for sharing, m'lovely! Great post as ever! I feel like your personality really shines through in this post!

  14. I love accessories and I loved your blanket scarf, very nice colour! So good that you got it back, it's so bad when we forget something we really like! Loved your backpack as well, it's very practical, keeping hands free! And sleeper earrings are so nice! Yes, I am careful when taking earrings pictures :) You look lovely in every picture! Hope you have a very nice weekend!

  18. I'm so with you on a lack of accessories during the colder months! I live in a scarf and always have a nice bag with me. I don't have my ears pierced so if I'm feeling fancy, I'll put on a statement necklace instead! Such a great post again!

  22. I love your look so much and that bright scarf goes so well with your skintone and hair! Those cosy scarves are most definitely my favourite winter detail, I literally wear them every single day and I'd also love to expand my tiny collection (I only own two blanket scarves) but that's something I'll think about next winter because right now all I can think of is spring, spring, spring! :D Have a great weekend! xx
