We seem to be sheltered from the worst of the snow and freezing temperatures but did enjoy a brief little flutter which quickly turned to hail then very ordinary rain. I hope you’re safe and warm!Time for the Jaeger vintage tweed skirt also here, Gap men cashmere jumper, Hermès Coup de Fouet scarf also here, Lanvin suede knee boots also here and the Céline bowling bag with canvas Evelyne strap. Topped off by the vintage Eastex coat. I love wearing skirts and knee boots in Winter. The thick tights and wool skirt combination is warmer than trousers for me. I prefer to have no gaps between the hem and top of the boots, I think it looks much neater for my short legs. And the V neck on men’s jumpers tend to be higher so it’s cosy warm with a scarf tucked in. This particular colour way in the Coup de Fouet is magical for me, toning and complimenting most everything I wear. I have a lot of vintage Jaeger from over the years, some found in charity shops and others on *bay. These pieces have stood the test of time due to their classic style and quality of material and construction. This skirt was much longer and the lining had been allowed to wear out but it was well worth fixing. I especially love the detail of the perfectly matched patch pockets. For me, buying vintage is not for its own sake for a retro look but to work with my normal everyday wear.
