Topshop Winter '16 Haul

I've been a bit MIA recently thanks to starting a new job recently. If you follow me on Instagram then you will already be well aware of this (and I might do a little post about my career change and how I managed to land my dream job in the space of 9 months).

Working for Topshop/Topman means that come every new season you need to be representing the brand as 'fashion with authority'. Here are just a few of my picks for this Winter '16:

Clockwise: Metallic Jumper by Boutique, Fine Stripe Mensy Fit Trousers by Boutique, Oversized Funnel Neck Jumper, Boiled Wool Skirt by Boutique, Tiny Pleat Top by Boutique, Magnificent Ankle Sock Boots.

It's probably clear that from my selection...I adore Topshop Boutique. It's description for the season of bringing 'inimitable cool to the holiday season with pyjama tailoring and decadent dresses' sums it up perfectly. 

I'm never usually a glittery sparkles Christmas kinda gal, but I couldn't resist this Metallic Jumper for £60 because it's not only eye catching but the shape is tailored to perfection. I'm a huge fan of tailoring especially on a good trouser which is why I think I was drawn to the Mensy Trousers at £85. The beauty of these is that they are high waister AND comfortable. I've often found that high waisted tailored trousers can fit everywhere else well apart from my waist and then I'm stuck in the limbo of do I go for a size bigger and loose the shape or just not eat or sit in them. Practicality is always more important in my books though. 

Now, this Oversized Funnel Neck Jumper (£39) I have basically lived in since I bought it. The collar is effortlessly chic and the boxy shape makes it the warmest, slouchy jumper I own. I've been wearing it so far without a shirt on underneath and have still been warm...I have a fair bit of doubt though that it will last like this over the next few months what with this Arctic weather we're having right now. 

I had my eye on the Boiled Wool Skirt for quite a while, always seeing it styled differently in store on the mannequin and every time making me want it more after seeing just how versatile it is. The tailoring on it is so much more than your average Topshop skirt and with the £80 price tag plus being made in Britain you would expect that. 

Next is the the Tiny Pleat Top, if I'm honest I bought a slightly different one to this which wasn't part of the Boutique range and definitely cheaper than £35. Unfortunately I couldn't find it listed on the site still and this was the closest example I could find to it! I bought the same on in white last season and love the top, mainly because of the cut of it and how it falls when on thanks to the pleats. 

Last but not least, the Magnificent Ankle Sock Boots which for the first time in a long while I squealed like a little girl over. They look gorgeous off and gorgeous on your feet too. I think several of us girls at work ended up going for them because we all just couldn't say no haha. They come in at £79 but are well worth it if you are looking to invest in a good, durable boot for the Winter season. I've worn these with basically everything e.g. skirts, culottes, jeans, trousers....you name it. As lame as it sounds, I really do recommend these.
