WRAP UP FOR WINTER


It's around this time that I'm starting the hunt for a new winter warmer. My Carhartt Siberian Parka served me well last year. In fact, it's served me well right up until now throughout the unpredictable British weather. 

But, I'm moving on. I need to pop the tags on a new jacket thats going to keep me toasty on these bitter mornings and keep me dry when the rain turns to snow.

I've picked out my top 3 jackets that I've seen so far, so check them out and let me know what you think!

PENFIELD: "THE COLDEST DAY" LOOKBOOK


Massachusetts-based outerwear brand Penfield presents its 2013 Fall/Winter Lookbook titled “The Coldest Day.” As soon as I saw it, I wanted to show you a few of my favourites - plus how could I not with that gorgeous French Bulldog?!

"The Coldest Day" is a fitting title considering the Lookbook is compromised of layers upon layers of clothing. Beautifully styled and shot, the Lookbooks rich palette of colours on a grey and black base, makes for an extremely pleasing aesthetic. The collection features brand new styles like the Chinook and Naklin, as well as the Penfield classics we all know and love.



There is a large selection of warm, cosy looking jackets, the type you're going to want when the mornings start to get bitter and frosty again. Layered under the jackets, vests, overshirts, sweatshirts, as well as pants and socks.

Penfield are notorious for high-quality cold weather textiles, they've been a pioneering figure in the outwear industry since the early 1960s, and rightly so.



To finish off the collection, there is a selection of thick-knit scarves and woollen throws to add to those layers. 

Some of the items are already available to order through their website, but more items will be up online soon.
