Anyone else live in jeans in winter - skirt/dress/tunic ideas needed.

In the summer I wear so many pretty skirts and dresses but come winter I live in jeans. I have got a couple of wrap dresses from Boden about 4 years ago and a denim skirt but most of my skirts are really formal Christmas day Coast style. I've got some fab treggings from M&S and an amazing array of boots ranging from my newly aquired black MOL fly ones to smart Russell and Bromley and LK Bennett ones in black and brown, suede and leather but they don't get the use!

I think because I used to wear so many skirts for work I would kick back in jeans but now I'm a SAHM I'm lacking.

Ideas for new additions for tunics, skirts and dresses.

I'm the same as I work mainly from home and always wear trousers.

This year I have bought the denim pencil skirt from Boden and the 60s mini skirt in grey- they can look casual or a bit more dressy.

The only winter dresse I have is again from Boden and it's a knitted one, and I don't wear it often.

What kind of fit is the pencil skirt? I'm 5.7 and a size 10 but a classic pear shape so have always avoided pencil skirts but I do love the idea of a pencil skirt - rather chic!

Will go look at them now - thanks!

It IS out of stock for ages...
I found it not too pencilly at all- almost straight in fact with just a slight inward curve at hem. The denim one has stretch (other might have too) and I found it fine- not tight at all- in fact I wanted it a bit tighter ( tart )

Try Uniqlo for dresses and knits. Also Esprit have got some fab tunics/dresses. Just been to Paris and seen them in the flesh - some really nice stuff. Couldn't afford to buy any due to the price of the vin rouge!
