Hannah-Rose from Capture the Castle loves the pairing of cosy sweaters, big scarves, and colourful bags. See what she singled out from The Corner Shop Paddington for her latest post.
One of the best things about this in-between weather is the way you can rug up in your warm woollen pieces but not have to put on a coat or a jacket. I've been defiantly wearing sweaters and scarves and all of that good stuff recently instead of throwing on a coat - as I normally would - to take advantage of that beautiful midday sunshine that cuts through that windy winter chill. Some of these sweaters are too perfect for words. Christopher Esber's deconstructed marle sweater has toggles at the neck and the hem to adjust the size, a beautiful, stiff round-neck collar and big sleeves you can roll up for extra effect.
And don't get me started on the cosiest knitted pieces from Purl Harbour and Nathan Smith... Add a warm scarf and an even warmer knitted beanie and you won't need anything else for winter. Even though I love my jackets sometimes it's much more fun to piece together an outfit from woolen separates. Adding these brightly coloured bags by Catherine Tran (fresh into the store when I popped in!) was a last minute touch but so perfect. The lovely - and obliging! - Katrina clutched them with both hands and looked ready to take on anything winter threw her way.
