Have just seen a beige ( supposedly grey)fake fur coat that is not sexy but love it. It's cosy.

Am also partial to chunky knits and heritage fabrics. Anyone else?

Will not stretch to mum boots though!

I bow to no woman in my love of a slightly bootcut pair of black work trousers!

Cigarette pants bah humbug

Waterfall cardy for me too. The bit round the front is so long I can wrap it round me twice. So warm.
It's a bit a tatty so I've relegated it to my work cardy. I wish I could find another one the same.

Anything fairisle, arran cardigans - both in oversized fit though. My clarks originals - so practical and comfy!!!

I love a chunky cable knit and also a poncho would not be overlooked in this house!

2 days ago I bought a pair of thermal leggings from m and s on a whim. I was there to buy thick tights. Oh may days, they are the most comfortable thing ever.

Uggs, wraps, chunky cardis,

I can't tell if my style is frumpy or hipster. Afraid of the answer, but I like what I like!

When it's bitter outside and I'm staying in for the evening with the kiddies i put a onesie on. I don't care! It's so warm and comfy and it's my guilty pleasure blush

I wear a brown plaid knee length wool skirt a la granny chic. Oh yes.

Selks Tue 30-Dec-14 22:15:04

Tunic tops. A mainstay of my wardrobe.

PinkOboe Tue 30-Dec-14 22:23:13

I love chie mihara shoes. Decidedly orthopedic but lovely nonetheless

CoconutAmericano Tue 30-Dec-14 22:25:40

Oh i've another one. I live in saltwater sandals in the summer. They are the only sandals that don't shred my feet, in my defence.

Fishandjam Tue 30-Dec-14 22:30:35

I love it all and I don't care - tweed, plaid, corduroy and real wool especially. And Arran/Fair Isle/cable knits. And waterfall cardigans. And I'll know no shame in my adoration of tunic tops and flat shoes.

Not mum boots though. I do have some standards.

Corygal Tue 30-Dec-14 22:34:38

I do love a grandad cardigan, and have had one on the go since I was 17. The latest version is navy Ballantyne cashmere (TK Maxx). Nice horn buttons, little pockets, sensible V neck. Yum.

What are mum boots ( need to see if I have a pair)

BigfootFilesHisToesInYourTea Tue 30-Dec-14 22:44:37

I'm a mum. I wear boots. I don't wear heels I can't run in and at 5'10" I don't want added height.

I love mum boots. I don't care.

(That said, I draw the line at these:

BigfootFilesHisToesInYourTea Tue 30-Dec-14 22:46:38

Minimammoth, may I refer you to this thread

Karasea Tue 30-Dec-14 22:49:50

Ha I love Masai style dresses with funny shapes and irregular hems. I wear them with green sandals so am a lost cause entirely!

LaurieFairyCake Tue 30-Dec-14 22:53:17

I wore a brand new Onesie today.

Fair isle, fleece, horribly ugly - but I'm
So ill I just wanted a big snuggly babygro

(Reduced from £40 in M and S sale to £13)

I luffs it today.

Minimammoth Tue 30-Dec-14 22:57:21

Oh dear I am a century behind, as those descriptions pretty much cover all boots. Stuff it and wear what you like.

Skinheadmermaid Tue 30-Dec-14 23:02:35

Well, I have to walk the dog in something. hmm
