OOTD: Blanket Wrap




Blanket Wrap: New Look (similar)| Jumper: Primark | Jeans: River Island | Boots: Dune | Bag: Storksak Elizabeth 

Hi guys, so I thought it was about time I wrote an outfit of the day post, and I decided to wear one of my most recent purchases the other day: this black and white checked blanket wrap (which looks grey from a distance) from New Look. I only bought it a few weeks ago but I can’t find it online so I linked a similar striped one above which I also love. This blanket wrap is great for these Autumn days that aren’t quite cold enough for a winter coat but you need more than a cardigan. It’s perfect for short walks and other times when you’re outside for a short time and it’s just so easy to throw on over a shirt, poloneck or jumper.

Blanket wraps aren’t to everyone’s taste but I think they look so stylish. You can wear them just loose as a kind of cape like I did, or throw one side over a shoulder, or with a belt, which I might try next. You can wear a shoulder bag with a blanket wrap, as shown in my second photo (I wasn’t sure I’d be able to before I tried mine on!) if you’re interested you can read my ‘What’s in my Storksak bag’ post here.

My outfit was super casual but I can imagine wearing my blanket wrap for a date night with heeled boots and a black poloneck jumper – we’re planning on going to see Spectre soon, I can’t wait!

I’d love to read your thoughts on my look, what do you think of blanket wraps? Thanks for stopping by! XO

Mint Jumper Dress

imageimageimageHi everyone!  I love jumper dresses, they’re so easy to throw on with leggings or tights and boots and that’s it – just add a couple of accessories and you’re good to go!  It was a lovely sunny afternoon when these pictures were taken, but it was so cold.  I wanted to include my daughter in this post and she also had a jumper dress on, but it wouldn’t have been wise to take her coat off – she would have frozen and I didn’t want to risk her catching a cold. Her little nose was all red bless her!


I included the photo above because it shows my hairstyle a bit better, you can’t really tell but it was quite windy and I struggled to keep my hair under control!  I curled the ends with a hair straightener, it’s so quick and easy to do.  The photo below is what I posted on my Instagram and shows a close-up of my necklace and lipstick.



What I Wore

Mint green jumper dress: Primark – only cost £8! I really like this grey one| Coat: Old | Boots: ASOS – I like these suede ones| Leggings: H&M| Bag: Louis Vuitton Eva Clutch – I purchased this a couple of years ago before I had a child and when I had a bit more disposable income! (It has increased in price now.)  Can’t wait to get more use out of this cute bag | Vintage pearl necklace: Birthday gift from husband – I love classic pearl necklaces and earrings, they’re so timeless and elegant | Lipliner: Rimmel Red Diva |Lipstick: Revlon matte Really Red – lasts ages and would suit anyone.

Thanks so much for reading!
