Last weekend found me adventuring in Whitstable. The day started off mild and sunny, so I optimistically threw on a cosy wrap and hoped that the heavens wouldn’t open. Which, luckily for me, they didn’t – yay! Unfortunately, it did decide to blow a gale – boo! On more than one occasion, this caused my wrap to take on the attributes of a Superwoman cape. Ah well, I am both a woman and super, so it was quite apt really 🙂
I have found myself making a number of wrap purchases recently. I find a cosy wrap incredibly versatile: snuggle into it when it’s cold, leave it open when it’s a bit warmer, keep one in the car to stave off drafts, or fold and throw it over your shoulder if it gets too warm. I have also used mine as a cushion for my still sore derrière!
I decided to style my cosy wrap with a statement bag and unusual gloves. I think the unusual accessories bring a touch of fun to an otherwise rather ‘grownup’ outfit. The boots I found in a seconds store. They were missing a number of studs and the buckles were broken. Enter Mr Chic who added new buckles and popped on clock faces in place of studs. Viola – new boots!
I wore this outfit to a recent blogger event, and it adapted perfectly to the different aspects of the day.
Cosy Warp – M & S / Necklace – M & S / Bag – Accessorise / Trousers – M & S / Gloves – Really old / Boots – Seconds store (no label) / Teal Jumper – M & S / Smell Of Fish – c/o the rather pungent lobster catchers!

It’s lucky I enjoyed this outfit as, judging by the unpredictable weather, I can see me reaching for this cosy wrap on many an adventure in the coming weeks!
