As the nights are drawing in and there is a definite chill in the air, I’m on the hunt for some cosy woollies which I can snuggle up in whilst sipping hot chocolate in front of the fire. And it may be because it’s Halloween next week or it may be because the ultimate twinkly time of year – Christmas – is just around the corner, but I’m being drawn to winter warmers of the star variety…
I’m going to start with my favourite of the lot, this Etoile jumper. It doesn’t have a star motif but it DOES bear the French word for star across it (why is everything prettier in French?). I also want this Hush scarf. Yes, I know it’s seventy five quid. I still want it. It’s 100% wool! Just look how happy the model in the picture is to be wearing it.
Judging by the Miss Selfridge and Zara websites, berets are making a comeback. Who knew? This Miss Selfridge one is ultra cute and is in the sale now. I reckon it would make the perfect stocking filler…
Our editor Lauren is one of the most stylish ladies I know. She also has a great eye for a bargain. Apparently, when she wore the jumper in the header to a recent meeting, Rock My Wedding editor Fern thought it was from Hush. But no, it’s actually from New Look. As is this ultra-versatile black-and-white star print jumper.
Another one for my Christmas wish list is this ‘falling star intarsia jumper’ from John Lewis in charcoal. I’ve been good this year Santa. Honest.
The easiest way to wear a star motif is on a scarf. This camel-coloured shawl with its subtle gold star detailing is so so chic. And it’s nearly half price at the moment…
Adding a flash of colour to proceedings is this super-soft sweater from Oasis. I’m loving the contrast between the red stars and the candy striped ladder detailing down the back.
And if you are looking to sprinkle some star(dust) prettiness across your abode – it is nearly Christmas after all – then head over to Cox and Cox. I need this brass star mirror in my life. And if you’ve got a little one, Lottie is talking star print fashion and interiors over on Rock My Family today. Or if you’re after some party inspiration of the starry variety then check out the epic-ness that was Mabel’s first Birthday party.
Now just to get that ‘Starry Eyed Surprise’ song out of my head…
