Style // Casual Winter Style

I've been in need of some major distraction this weekend and as usual, Pinterest has provided just that! Do you ever find yourself in a bit of a rut style wise? I'm bored of my clothes at the moment and haven't really got the extra cash to go out and splurge on a new wardrobe. Also I find it really difficult to shop since moving to the country. In Cardiff I was spoilt for choice and working and living in the city meant I was surrounded by fashion on a daily basis. So many stores to browse, high street, designer and individual boutiques in the Victorian arcades meant that that I could add a new piece relatively easily to update and give my outfit a new lease of life.  Here, there is definitely a shortage and everything takes more of an effort to get to. I've also found that not coming into contact with many people during a day has made me maybe a bit lazy and I seem to be reaching for the same combination of clothes regularly. I  miss my identity in the city!

So, from the comfort of my sofa I've been pinning away to my hearts content! For the most part I have these items in my wardrobe / crammed full chest of drawers, so these pins are just re-working pieces and giving me a kick up the backside to make a bit more effort in planning what I'm wearing. I may not be in the city anymore but that doesn't mean casual can't look together and smart.

It's been a long time since I posted weekly outfit posts but I'm considering bringing them back if only to keep myself accountable! In the mean time, you can view my style boards on my Pinterest.
Here's to a more fashionable week!


Linking up with City Country Life


  1. I love those little Arcades in Cardiff too, there are some really cool shops there. I feel the same Amy, since having kids I don't really get to browse the shops for outfit inspiration, so I feel like I'm stuck in a style rut! You should definitely bring back your outfit posts, I would love to see them!

  2. All of these pins look great! I live in a city but still find myself wearing the same thing all the time - it's just so much easier to grab something familiar than think about things! #CityCountryLife

  3. These pins are great Amy! I love style and it's only since I cleared out my wardrobe recently I realised how much I love colour blocking and stripes! Thanks for the inspiration. With spring just around the corner I'm looking forward to shopping for for warmer weather. Thank you so much for linking up to #CityCountryLife

  4. Love these pins - in fact, I'm sure I've pinned the second photo myself! I do miss working right next to the shops for all the lunchtime shopping I'd do. Mind you, I suspect my bank balance is healthier because of it! #CityCountryLife
