Style – Beating the Winter Blues with LOTD

I’ve been stuck in a bit of a style rut for a while. Although I’ve been wanting some new clothes for some time now, I tend to restock the kids’ wardrobes before my own.

When Manchester based clothing company LOTD (Look of the Day) contacted me asking if I would be interested in collaborating on a post, I headed straight onto their site to see what I would like to get.

As a mum, sometimes I feel like I no longer have my own identity. With the sleepless nights, seemingly endless school runs and the fact that Benjamin is still breastfeeding, I am desperately in need of a wardrobe update to regain a bit of my own personality.

To give myself some inspiration on what clothes to pick out, I headed to Pinterest. I find it really interesting seeing how other people style their outfits, and I soon picked out a few looks I loved.

Back on the LOTD site, I was pleasantly surprised to see that their prices were really reasonable, and at the time they also had a sale on with 50% off so I was able to pick out not one but two new outfits along with a coat.

Delivery was extremely fast, and I was really impressed with the quality of the clothes for the price.

The first outfit I picked out I would describe as girly with a cosy vibe (thats not the technical term I’m sure). I wanted something that I could sling on everyday for the school run, without looking like I hadn’t made any effort.

The two pair of boots I own have seen better days, and my favourite pair are in desperate need of reheeling so I picked out these cute stone colour boots to go with the dusky pink jumper and hat and I love them.

Usually I go for knee high over ankle boots but these ones look nice and practical whilst still being stylish.

I think my favourite part of the outfit is the hat. I am a huge fan of the humble bobble hat at the moment and it’s a total saviour for those mornings when you haven’t had time to wash your hair. The colour of this one is so cute, and it really goes well with the jumper.

When buying clothing online, there’s always the risk that something won’t suit or fit you. Unfortunately the jeans I ordered were a little too big for me as I am an 8-10 and it depends on the fit of the jeans.

I cannot fault LOTD on their hassle free returns process. Simply fill in the included returns form, pop the freepost label on and head to your local post office for an exchange or return.

For my second outfit I went for a mix of dressy and casual with this black body, velvet skirt and oversized wine coloured grandad cardigan.

Originally I had picked out the skirt in the wine colour, but they were out of stock in my size. I actually really like it in black and I like the contrast between the cardigan and the rest of the outfit.

I think this outfit will be brilliant for over the Christmas break, when you can get away with being a little more dressed up, but still want to keep warm.

I will also be pulling this cardigan on over pretty much every outfit in my wardrobe for a good few months as it’s so warm and comfortable.

Finally, the coat I picked out is completely different to any style of coat I have ever owned before, but I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone a bit and I have seen similar styles on other bloggers and loved the look.

I’m not 100% I can pull it off, but its nice and cosy, and again, I think the quality for the price is incredible (even at full price it is only £20).

If one of your 2018 goals is to refresh your wardrobe, or you’re just in the mood for treating yourself to some new clothes, have a look on LOTD’s website. They have a huge range of clothing, footwear, coats and accessories all at very reasonable prices.

I will definitely be taking another look before our honeymoon next year to pick up some summery pieces and bikinis.

I was sent the clothes featured in this post for the purpose of this review, however all photos and opinions are my own.
