Transition Dress Winter to Spring

Do you have a dress or two in your wardrobe that literally is perfect for almost any occasion or season? This is one of mine, and I love it. It's super comfortable, but also a thicker material so perfect for colder days. The best part is it's super stretchy and flattering no matter how many pies you had for dinner. I'm pretty sure Reiss is my new favourite place to shop, but I do tend to restrict it to Sale season. 

This weekend we had perfect weather, and all the buttercups were out in the fields. If you're in the British countryside you will also have likely spotted lots of lambs, which just makes any walk that much more special. This week I'm back on night shifts, so that's always my least favourite time but it has the potential to be quiet and sometimes I can get lots done. Other times not. 

I'm really looking forward to the days continuing to warm up, and getting to spend more time outdoors. Who knew I would become such a lover of the country life?! Not me.

You may know by now that last year I truly discovered cashmere jumpers, and have been obsessed ever since. They are I investment pieces, but keep you so warm in the winter it allows for less layers (and I'm very much a 'cold' person). A couple months ago I found a UK company that specialises in repurposing cashmere, so you can find great pieces at a lower cost and have the added bonus of reducing your carbon footprint. It's called Nearly New Cashmere and I would highly recommend it. Every piece is unique, so if you like something in your size don't sit on it too long. 


This weekend is beautiful, and I'm typing this from my lounge chair in the courtyard during my study break. Exam is just weeks away! Excited to be done with studying for a little while again, and very much looking forward to Summer. Hoping to post some travel content (fingers and toes crossed!).

Grey Winter Dress

I used to wear only trousers in Winter, but I love a good dress. Last year I started purchasing some comfortable and warmer dresses for the season. Wearing them with over the knee boots works so well, and this one in particular is wool so super warm. I actually got it in a light grey too. When you love something, buy it in 2 colours right?! Also, who else loves lounging at home in a pretty outfit? 


My first month of being an intern has flown by, and I think I may slowly be getting the hang of things. I've chosen my specialty (diagnostic imaging/radiology) which is really exciting, and the whole reason I chose to do a rotating internship. I'm also still studying for my NAVLE which is proving challenging with everything else on my to do list, but once it's done hopefully it will be easier to focus on just one thing at a time. 


I hope you are all having a lovely start to your week.

So Christmas and January were a blur (a good blur), but now I'm typing this post from the intern house. Quick recap. Christmas was great, lots of time with family along with a few days in Austria prior. January I started to really focus on studying again (sitting my NAVLE in April - send help) and I finished working in general practice. My rotating internship started 2 weeks ago now. You can see more of what I'm up to on my Youtube channel, where I'm also trying to post whenever I get a chance. 

So back to this fabulous outfit. If you've been here a while, you may remember this coat from here. It's a really good piece for Autumn or even UK Winter (on occasion) and immediately elevates an outfit. Don't you just LOVE the faux fur sleeves?! Also, don't do what I did and put your cashmere scarf in the washing machine (on a normal setting).... 

I also love an over the knee boot, but I can't say I'd purchase these again. This particular pair involve a lot of pulling the boots up and tying them so tight you cut off your circulation. Not ideal, so I would avoid the tie up ones in the future and go for a different style (like the alternative linked). However, they are a fabulous and comfortable boot otherwise, so the brand I would recommend if you are on the hunt for a new pair of boots. 

I hope you are having a lovely day. Chat soon.
