Long Cardis, Prima Denim Skinny Jeans and Scarves

Two more outfits I wore for the Winter Style File style challenge. It's nice that the winter weather has arrived and I can wear my ankle boots again! My prima denim skinny jeans, Chelsea leather ankle boots, tees and cosy cardis make easy SAHM winter outfits!

What I wore:

Oscar's Law graphic tee Jeanswest prima skinny jeans grey cardi SAHM winter style | Away From Blue

Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | AwayFromTheBlue
ScarfMarc by Marc Jacobs bright blue stole
TeeOscar's Law 'Break the puppy trade' tee
JeansJeanswest Bindi skinny 7/8 jeans in indigo luxe
ShoesAsos leather Chelsea boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

The style challenge for the day was 'put a scarf on it'. Easy to do with the cold weather making me want to layer!

I thought this was going to be a quiet and relaxing day, but after getting home in the morning and settling down to feed baby boy I checked my phone as I knew I had a doctor's appointment coming up that week. Only to find that my appointment was in 15 minutes! Thankfully the traffic lights were in my favour and we were only 5 minutes late for my appointment, and as the doctor was running a little late I was able to sit there in the waiting room and feed the now very cranky baby boy.


Last worn: grey cardigan, cobalt scarfgraphic tee, Prima skinny jeans, Chelsea boots, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC.

JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
ShoesAsos leather Chelsea boots in tan
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Another cosy cardi, skinny jeans, ankle boots and scarf outfit! Needed something simple as we had to stop by the shops on our way to playgroup that morning and I was in a bit of a rush. While the tan ankle boots don't look too bad I think black ones would have been better.

The style challenge for the day was to wear your favourite coat. I wore this a lot last winter, although this was it's first wearing this year. It's a "coatigan" which is a word that makes me giggle ever since I first heard it. A cosy cardi that's thick and warm enough to be a coat! It came in helpful as it was such a windy day.


Last worn: black and white cardigan, star print scarf, maroon tee, black prima skinny jeans, Chelsea ankle boots (above), Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC (above).

Other ways to wearblack and white cardigan and a maxi skirt, star print scarf and floral tank, maroon tee and metallic gold jeans, black prima skinny jeans and a printed cami, Chelsea ankle boots and a blue dress, aquamarine mini MAC bag and red jeans.

  11. Your skinny jeans and boots have me beckoning UK winter already - I miss teaming those two together, they always look so chic. I've also chuckle at the 'coatigan' name - it is an amazing idea though! x

  13. I have OTK boots and normal height boots but no ankle boots. I use to have one pair but I find it to look funny on me and I gave it away. I adore that stripe cardigan in the second outfit, actually I'm a huge fan of stripe anything!

  33. I love the comfy, long cardigan style! I always wonder how winters in australia is like; my cousins live there and it's so strange when we meet up in Hong Kong in December and they just came from summer and I come from winter!
