One walk, three outfits and a touch of pneumonia: How to style a winter walk

One walk, three outfits and a touch of pneumonia: How to style a winter walk

There is no greater happiness to my wonderful mum than a child who is warm and fed. Amidst, I quote, "pumping me full of whipped cream" (she hates having two skinny children), my mum has wrapped me up in multiple layers of extraordinarily unsightly winter wear for the past twenty-two years. I'm talking fluorescent-pink-lined anoraks, ghastly TKMaxx ski jumpers and bank-robber balaclavas; all in the name of the warmth. This penchant for warmth has stuck...until now. 

Sick and tired of turning up to my annual New Years walk looking like a ten tonne blob, I set myself the challenge of styling a more fashionable winter ensemble. Here is one walk, three outfits and a touch of pneumonia!

1) The pneumonia-inducing-beige-coat-open-chest look 

The details:
- Slouchy beige coat - Marks & Spencer
- Top - Glamourous @ ASOS
- Bag - Mulberry Bayswater
- Sunglasses - Rayban Clubmaster Round
- Biker boots - Next

2) "Add a hat and lose a bag for increased mobility" (my boyfriend's suggestion for the name of this look)

The details:
- Slouchy beige coat - Marks & Spencer
- Hat - H&M
- Top - Glamourous @ ASOS
- Sunglasses - Rayban Clubmaster Round
- Biker boots - Next

3) The outfit my mum will be proud of

The details:
- Puffer Jacket - ZARA
- Jumper - Topshop
- Wellies - Hunter

After putting aside my thermal undergarments and lumpy winter jumpers, it's safe to say I enjoyed looking a bit more stylish than normal. However, I don't think I'll be sacrificing my deeply engrained love for warmth in favour of some skimpy blogger-friendly outfits anytime soon!

Style over comfort? What do you think? Let me know in the comments!
