Wrapping up for the cold - teenage style not mutton!

Oh baby, it's cold out here! Thankfully for Christmas I was given a couple of gorgeous scarves, including this fabulous scarf/blanket that I am wearing almost every day now!  It was a gift from my mother-in-law, and comes from the White Company - I LOVE it!

Last year Mr.G presented me with a pair of gorgeous Jimmy Choo tangerine Abel stiletto courts - love!  I was about to start a new job, so the shoes fit the bill!  This year, he went for Nike Air Max - weirdly, I've never owned a pair, and don't ask what came over me over the last couple of months, but I've really been wanting some - although of course, not for exercise!




Being petite, I usually rock heels, the higher the better, and love love love my wedges.  If I ever do wear flats, I'm in Dune Ballerinas or else Converse, but this is not the weather for such things - it's time for these bad boys.  And I have been wearing them with everything!  It must be contagious, as I just read Not Another Mummy Blog's post about her New Balance kicks.  Teenage style is about to be taken over!

    1. Oh phew, as long as it's not mutton dressed as lamb! I love this look, quite different for me too - goes to show an old dog can learn new tricks!

  2. Your Nike Air Max look fab! I have a huge looped scarf too - and a smaller handbag similar to that laptop case. Good taste ;) #AllAboutYou

  4. You look great, I love my trainers, school runs would not be the same with heels on :) I wanted some Jimmy Choos for years but I finally got to wear some in a photo shoot last year, I couldn't walk in them to well, they had to hold me up to get into them,haha :)

    1. Funny how different brands feel so different according to each individual - I think that I could run for a bus in my Jimmy Choos, almost as well as in the trainers! Thanks so much for stopping by Claire!

  6. LOL, I agree that it's definitely not teenage style. It's urban chic! Love that super chunky scarf and your moto jacket. Thanks so much for linking up with Manic Monday!

  9. You look ¨casually¨ gorgeous! I think trainers are not exclusive for teenagers anymore or for going to the gym. ;)
