What do you get when you cross a lamb with a sailor? That’s right! YOU GET MCQUEEN

Having been born and raised barefoot on a sunny beach far, far away winters in London always get me down. It’s not just the cold, and the rain, and the wind, and the darkness, and the grey and the glumness, it’s….well, it actually IS all of that that gets me down.

BUT all the warm winter coats and cosy jumpers perk me right back up, and if there is one thing I invest some serious CHA-CHING on is a good winter coat.

If could have ANY COAT IN THE WORLD, I would have this particularly exquisite McQueen number:

This twill and shearling number is not only stylish, but it is also super warm, perfect for the harsh London winters.

It is also SO FUN! Part sailor, part darling little lamb; now there’s a look that can’t go wrong!

Dress it down with jeans and Chelsea Boots, throw in a nice flannel shirt and you are all set! Or dress it up with a vintage printed dress, particularly in cream/off-white palette with high-heel ankle booties for a night out.

How would you wear it?

Wish list: LEATHER

Because it’s Monday, and it’s about to get really friggin’ cold in London, I decided to compile a list of warm leather pieces that will not only keep you warm; they will keep you DRY!

Since moving from the tropics to The Big Smoke, leather has been my best friend, helping me keep the wind and the rain from my ill-accustomed bones.  So, lucky me, it’s a SUPER TREND right now!

Leather doesn’t get any better than All Saints, and this oxblood shrunken biker is ULTRA! It costs as much as rent, but is so worth it! £398 from allsaints.com

This Oasis quilted leather mini is RYCH. Just retro enough to keep a girl happy, but edgy enough to join a biker gang. Love. £80, available from Oasis

Markus Lupfer’s merino (LUSH) jumper with the sequined lips on it will make any leather look a million times cooler. And any reference to Rocky Horror Picture Show is alright with me. £315, from net-a-porter

Acne is my latest obsession, they are simply too cool for school. This bag comes in two sizes, the the tiny one is just simply darling, non? It’s a snip at £500 from shop.acnestudios.com/

And those red leather biker pants, from The H&M Collaboration That Shall Not Be Named…my one true love. As the poet Cher once said: “If I could turn back time…”…I would certainly make this my priority in that crazy rush sale!
