Wishlist – Winter Clothes for the School Run

Brrrr, it’s bitterly cold as I’m writing this, and I have just returned from a very windy and wet school run. My feet are wet because I, stupidly, wore trainers and trod in a massive puddle as I was getting out of the car. Oh, woe is me. I am currently hugging a mug of tea and thinking about the lack of suitable winter clothes in my wardrobe, and how I really should buy some sooner rather than later.

What I really need is a decent pair of jeans of the non-skinny legged variety. I made a point of wearing them last year, trying them out, as they are not my usual style. But I’m still not keen on them. I’m a top heavy lady, and I fear that wearing skinny jeans makes me look even more so.

I also need a really good pair of boots that I can wear in the rain with no worries of damaging them. I have a gorgeous pair of Chelsea boots from Hotter Shoes that I adore, but I wouldn’t want to wear them in this weather.

So, having a bit of a look on t’web I’ve picked a few bits that I think would be ideal for the school run / daytime in the winter:

    Great boots! I too need a new pair, but just cannot find what I am looking for, I want something a little shorter than these ones otherwise I might well give them a go. Hope you find what you are looking for.

    I’m liking that classic duffel coat! My boys have them so we’d all be matchy… I’m too scared to wear anything but skinnies as I’ve got so used to them. They’re not actually very flattering on me (pear shaped) though so I really ought to try something different too!
