#TheWinterProject Week 2 : Winter Accessories!



Christmas is getting closer my lovely bbloggers!!! I know some people think it's too early but I just couldn't resist! This week's #TheWinterProject theme is Winter Accessories! Now this one's a pretty broad theme, but I've decided to go all fashion on you ass's because I realised although I buy almost as much clothes as I do lipsticks, I rarely talk fashion and should do more fashion posts for you guys! 

Now, living in Leeds, the first thing that comes to mind when I think Winter (or any season for that matter) is RAIN! How does it rain so much here? I just don't understand. Anyways, it rains almost every day I'm sure and so a Mac is an essential. As a lover of all thing leopard, this Debenhams beauty * I thinks it's by Red Herring* was a must for me and has been seeing me through many a blustery walk lately!
Secondly, as it gets cold, my ears freeze up like crazy! I only wish they did these fluffy headbands for noses too. I also have leopard earmuffs, but as I bought a printed coat I didn't think I could really rock leopard ears with it. This fluffy number is from Miss Selfridge, although you can get them way cheaper if you look around...


It only makes sense that if it rains so much, I'm going to need wellies. Also, for some uncontrollable urge of mine, I like to buy more wellies all the time and they are the only flat boots I own. The Hunters are my faves and were a birthday treat last year, but the others are much more purse friendly. The burgundy pair are from George @ Asda, grab some quick!, and I picked up these leopard cuties just three days ago in Dorothy Perkins! I only have short wellies like these as I think you can get away with them every day. Plus, when you see everyone dodging puddles you can just storm right through like you're the queen or something (sad but wierdly satisfying, huh).


Lastly, a winter accessories post this season wouldn't be right without a spot of tartan, would it? I really hate giving in to trends, but as a big big tartan lover I couldn't resist this time. The crop top on the left is from Topshop, and while I paid £18 for this online it says £24 on the label, so shop online ladies if you like this! How cheeky of them! The dress on the right is a Dorothy Perkins number, and I fell for it straight away as I thought it was a bit different with its blue and yellowy colours, plus it's more subtle if that's what you fancy.

I could go on forever with all my winter essentials and recent purchases, but its 6 o'clock, you probably want your tea and also need to read all the other #thewinterproject posts! If you have one, link me it below, or please comment or tweet me letting me know what you think, I love to hear from you!
Have a lovely week bbloggers and bblogreaders, 
Love you lots,
