winter warmers for your wedding day
After our tropical October, winter is now taking it’s rightful place as Christmas approaches. I’m secretly really pleased because it means I can finally wear my lovely new faux fur collared coat without breaking into a sweat on the way to the station in the morning!
I love a bit of faux fur; pretty much every coat I have bought over the years has some incorporated somewhere. It is warm, of course, but also a little bit glam which is always fun, and super flattering too.
As you might know from reading the posts about our wedding day, we got married in the summer (in small part because it coincided with a trip my sister, who lives in Australia, was already making to the UK, but mainly because my birthday is at Christmas and I wanted to spread out the important dates – and presents – a little). Anything furry would have been mighty uncomfortable in July, but had we had a winter wonderland wedding I would have loved to have gone all out with a beautiful snow white stole and long gloves.
