I have a few outfits that I wore on my recent trip to Edinburgh coming up (and a post with some pretty Scottish landscapes next!), this being one of them. The weather wasn't terrible but it was quite chilly so I decided to take these in our hotel room as the light was rather lovely. 

I really like this velvet shirt but it's rather large and fits a little bit weirdly which makes the collar go wonky a lot but I think it works rather well with this dress, which happens to be one of my very favourite Black Milk pieces - I like maps a lot.

I was half way though eating my breakfast when we took these photos which is why there aren't many - half of them are me pulling funny eating faces haha.

Winter Layers Wishlist from ModCloth

Styling Layers for Winter

Dressing warmly and fashionably during the colder months can be a bit of a challenge but with a couple of staple pieces it can become as easy as dressing for any other season. I've chosen some key pieces from the Modcloth website and put together a couple of outfit combinations that I think would be fabulous.

The dress in this outfit collection is the main feature, with the scarf neckline it would look super cute poking out from under a knitted jumper like this grey cable knit with the skirt flaring out to match the silhouette of the coat. Deep colours like the maroon of the dress and the brown of the boots are perfect for matching to the leaves on the ground. I would add a pair of plain black tights for added warmth and perhaps some cute socks to peek out over the top of the boots and these adorable gold bow hair pins would add an elegant detail. I must admit I've been re-watching a lot of Gossip Girl lately and Blair's style has influenced me more towards hair accessories.

I thought this pastel pink jumper would be great for getting ready for spring, during the winter it can be worn with a plain white tee underneath and a cosy waterfall cardigan (both from the fabulous sweater section of the site, check out the cardigans too) over the top but will also be perfect by itself when the warmer months eventually come around. Pairing these items with some plain black skinny trousers ties them together and evens out the mix of colour and pattern on top. I added in this super cool necklace that I absolutely love, who doesn't love a good map?

You can also make wishlists of your favourite things on the ModCloth site, see my wishlist here. Let me know if you make one! I really love sites that have this ability, I might start doing more wishlist posts so that I can collate things I like from places that don't have their own.

Who doesn't love some cosy knitwear on a Winter's day? I doubled up with a chunky knitted scarf and a cable knit jumper for this outfit to keep extra snug as it was pretty chilly in the wind. Neutral toned knitwear is a must have as it goes with everything!

 I've had these leggings for probably around two years now and this is the first time I've actually worn them. I intended for them to be a summer legging but I think white can actually work better in the winter, it gives that frosty snowy vibe.

What do you wear on chilly days? I'd love to see different outfits!
