Over the weekend, I went shopping with my best friend and blogger Sarah of Nifty Thrifts. I had a lovely day and we spent the day thrifting at charity shops, eating at little cafés and visiting the most expertly decorated vintage boutiques. We visited a café called Home Sweet Home, (where we ate freshly baked home made cookies with a glass of milk), as well as the usual staple visit: Oklahoma Café, if any of you happen to stop buy at Manchester, then I strongly urge you to visit some of Manchester’s finest cafés! We visited the infamous Pop Boutique, where I purchased a retro-style pinafore dress (you will be seeing it on my blog very soon!). Along the way, I also bought some incense to burn in my room; Sarah recently introduced me to the wonders of incense! At the end of the day, we were sure to take a trip to Magma, my all-time favourite magazine store!

I firmly believe that the key to staying warm in the cooler seasons is by layering, and that for me, means layering with numerous pairs of leggings. The generic belief is to slip on a pair of skinny jeans, however, with this outfit, I wanted to convey different ways in which you can wrap up warm for winter. The maxi skirt I am wearing here in this post has made an appearance before on my blog, but in summer! Here you see the very same skirt, but this time worn over numerous pairs of leggings, which in fact, is an extremely effective way to keep warm.

I also just wanted to take a moment to draw your attention to Sarah’s blog, Nifty Thrifts. I love Sarah’s blog, she has the most perfect sense of style and I am always in utter awe at her outfit posts. Do take a moment to check out her blog, I assure that you will not be disappointed!

Love from,

Miss Iffa
