I am a strange creature - I dislike warmer weather, but am almost as grumpy when it's very cold. I reason however, that when it's cold you can at least dress up warm and jump up and down like a loony to raise the body temperature - whereas in warmer weather there's little option (for me) but to melt and perspire (and growl). My ideal weather is a mild autumn day.
Anyway, enough of the seasons / weather. My award for most useful / most worn / most enjoyed and best value on a cost per wear (or any!) basis this winter has been..............................
the Pure Collection biscuit coloured snood.
It's so soft, warm and comfortable and the shade is perfect for me. I have been wearing it as a kind of unattached polo neck over all manner of items, and it hasn't precluded the wearing of a finer/ drapy scarf on top - good news for me as I have so many to get my wear out of!
Now that I am a bona fide Pure Collection customer I have received a lovely 'bound' catalogue from them, which is pure temptation. It sets out one beautiful item per page and I already have a few of them on my wish list for spring - top of the list is this cobalt blue fine gauge sweater.
It would look good with these navy blue paisley print skinny jeans from Zara (purchased a couple of days ago) which have already had compliments - pics of me wearing them to follow.
|Not a great photo... what else have you come to expect ;-) - but I can't see them on the website.|

Oh.... and PS
What's all this nonsense about 'boyfriend jeans'? (a) they look awful on (they really do) and (b) they are just any old jeans turned up as far as I can see / tell... How is the fit different?
Call me a simpleton but is this not a case of 'Emperor's New Clothes' if ever there was one....?!
