During the Summer, us ladies frequent the gym, pumping iron and denying carbs before the prolific Marbs bikini catwalk. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that we do it to punish our bodies; we do it to look fabulous in our Summer wardrobe of skimpy shorts and low slung jeans. However, have you ever wondered what happens to this type of fair weather gym bunny? Where do these creature go to hibernate, and more importantly, what do they wear?!
This blog is here to shed some light on the mystery of the winter woman. We aren’t hiding, just enjoying life, curled slumped infront of Downton Abbey surrounded by foods with a high sugar/fat content. Anything from Haribos to Ben and Jerry’s will do as my boyfriend will attest to, just as long as it isn’t pretending to be healthy in any way.
When lounging in this manner, it is important to remember that style is still important. When we’re not prancing about in swimwear, instead it’s knitwear that’s the wardrobe essential for AW of any season, but in particular 2014/15. In case you haven’t already heard the news, this season rugs are in. Yep you heard it, rugs. So when you’re sprawled in front of the TV watching another rerun of Lewis, huddled under a gingham throw, you are still the height of fashion! That is the beauty of winter my friends.
Knitwear is the staple of any girls AW wardrobe. When it comes to knitwear the bolder the better, I like to choose knitwear in the same way a magpie would select items for its nest, sparkly, bright and easy to find when I’m getting ready of a dark winter morning.
In short, winter aint no picnic. Shorter days and colder temperatures can really get a gal down, but don't be disheartened, embrace the slob in you with co-ordinating snacks and entertainment but don't let your knit game slide- it's the only thing that separates you from your mum...
