With the Winter months a lot of us can be so busy treating others that we can forget to treat ourselves and I’m here to put a stop to this. It’s time to normalise treating ourselves! At least, that’s what I tell myself as I order myself a new lipstick along with a Christmas present for my mum! However, it seems that after covid a lot of people have changed their idea of treating themselves and opt for splashing out on an experience rather than a physical gift, which is why it now feels like everyone on our Instagram feed is off on a weekend break! And whether it’s a city break or a spa weekend, we’ve got you covered!
The best part of any weekend away is exploring the area, and we’ve got the perfect coat for those morning walks. Puffer jackets are having a real moment right now and this one from Glamorous is one our current favourites with an on trend brown tone that gives us major 70’s vibes. The puffer style is an absolute must when it comes to comfort and believe me when I say that you won’t want to take this coat off! This one could be best with fitted jeans and a slim fitting tip to avoid too much bulk in the outfit and to allow the coat to be the statement piece!
We knew when planning our Christmas stock that these hat and scarf bundles were a must, and this one just might find its way into my handbag this week! Complete with a taupe scarf and a cream bobble hat with matching gloves, the neutral tones of this one mean that it will pair perfectly with almost any outfit. This will really help you nail the whole “cute, but also comfortable, but cute too” off duty look. And the best part is that the gloves have a touch function on the thumb and index fingers, so gone are the days of getting a phone call and furiously tapping the screen trying to answer it before giving up and scrambling to take off your gloves!
We’re big believers that you can never go wrong with a mini dress as it’s always the perfect option when looking for something to take you from day to night and we’re loving this one from Ivy Lane to add the perfect splash of colour. The puff sleeve and elasticated cuff make for a slimming style with maximum comfort while the frill hem adds volume to the bottom half of the body and creates the illusion of curves here. The volume created by the fill hem and puff sleeves is contrasted really well by the tie detail at the waistline. This defines the waist and adds shape to the dress to give us that hourglass silhouette. This could be worn during the day with trainers before being swapped for heels to complete the perfect evening look.
Comfortable shoes are an absolute must have, which is exactly why we’ve been loving this pair from Only! The light grey is a welcome change from the white trainers that we’re used to, but is still neutral enough to go with almost any outfit and looks amazing with a fresh tan! The rose gold foil detailing at the back adds the perfect detail to give the outfit interest without overpowering the rest of the look.
As much as we love our day dresses, they’re not always the most practical option, especially when it comes to our girls that prefer to spend the weekends exploring (we know you’re out there) which is where our Bali leggings come in! Here at GTT we’re big fans of our leggings and each style is well tested by our team, from Yvonne who has been likened to Dora the Explorer on more than one occasion, to Anne who spent the summer hunting for the perfect leggings for her daily walks, to me who enjoys the odd stroll to the fridge on occasion, and we don’t want to be biased but we think we might have hit the nail on the head with this pair! The thick material of this one means that they’re completely squat proof, as well as being high waisted which will visually lift the waist to elongate the body and are reinforced with an increased blend of spandex for a non slip effect!
