FASHION | Stepping into winter with JD Williams

In light of my first LOTW in like, ten years (okay, I lie, a few years!), I must admit I’ve slowly gotten back into blogging about fashion. So when JD Williams got in touch to ask me if I wanted to review a few of their items, I was pleased as punch!

I’ve definitely gotten more into fashion again since working at H&M again too, choosing to style and mix up my outfits more instead of just choosing clothes based on comfort.

It didn’t take me long to decide what I wanted from JD Williams; two cute jumpers for winter and a gorgeous feminine pair of winter boots. I only really have ‘biker’ boots or my Converse to wear during winter, so I knew a more durable but stylish pair of ankle boots would go down well.

I’ve wanted a pair of boots like this for a while but could never find a pair quite right and I was always worried they’d end up being uncomfortable. These ones are a dream though; they’re really warm and comfy on the inside, keeping my toes nice and toasty. They’re super versatile too and you barely notice the heel. My feet only started to ache a little after a long day walking around Waddesdon Manor, which is a feat for me as usually any form of heel has my feet in pain within the hour!

I also chose this sweet Oasis embroidered jumper. I bought a lot of thick and oversized jumpers for work recently so I thought it would be wise to pick a lighter and more stylish jumper for days out or when the weather isn’t too cold. Floral embroidery is really in right now so not only is this jumper really versatile but it’s bang on trend too. It has a sweet bow detail at the back and I also love the ruffle cuffs; so simple but sweet.

As well as the black floral jumper, I also chose a looser light blue one with similar cuffs. This one is really soft and girly which I like and it’s so simple but stylish that I wish I’d ordered it in a few other colours too! It’s a really comfy fit and although it looks bright in the photos, in reality it’s not so harsh on the eyes and is more like a versatile icy blue – perfect for winter.

Overall, I’m really pleased with my picks. They’re good quality timeless pieces and I’ll certainly be getting a lot of wear out of them this winter. I think JD Williams are fast becoming one of my new favourite brands too – especially for footwear!
