Wednesday Winners

Hey Everyone

It hardly seems a week since we were last picking out our Wednesday Winners - where does the time go?! We hope you've all been enjoying our picks and that you aren't suffering too much from the same fate as we have: RSS - Repetitive Shopping Syndrome, from all the clicking and inputting of card details online!!

Chelsea's Picks

This week I've picked out some more wintry items - ironic since I am picking these on what is actually a really sunny day (but unfortunately, the sceptic in me knows this won't last and so it's best to be prepared!)

1. Zara Cable Knit Sweater with Zip (£38.99)
I love this jumper. I really like knitwear, especially cable knit and I love the traditional colour of this Aaron-like jumper. The zip at the back adds a modern twist too.

2. Sam Edelman Kendrix Buckle High Ankle Boots @ mywardrobe (£180)
For a pair of designer boots, £180 isn't too bad (who am I trying to convince?) I think this pair have a Mulberry look about them with all of the straps. I like the tough look and would definitely wear these with a pair of skinny jeans and the Zara jumper!

3. Miss Selfridge Green Lace Insert Tee (£28)
I was really trying my best not to mention collars this week on the blog as I know Naomi will mock my obsession! However, I am willing to sacrafice Naomi having a laugh at my expense to bring you this super cute t-shirt. I love the pale green (although it is equally cute in the cream) and the lace inserts make it slightly more pretty and dressy.

4. George High Waisted Denim Spot Shorts (£14)
Whilst saving for my wedding I got a little bit addicted to finding supermarket bargains! George is my favourite supermarket range and I'm not ashamed to admit that I don't mind picking up a pair of cute shorts with my bread and apples! I think this polka dot high-waisted pair are very Jess from New Girl.

5. Oasis Parka with Leopard Fur Lining at ASOS (£88)
This coat is my favourite of this week's picks. I love a good parka and this traditional khaki one looks so cosy with the leopard lining and hood. It's definitely on the top of my birthday purchases list!

Naomi's Picks:

Zara has absolutely floated my boat this week.  I could have picked all five winners from Zara alone, but I didn't want to look like I hadn't put any effort in! 

Please note: You need to click on the links for all five of the winners to get a good zoom and appreciate their design and beauty.

1. Zara Jacquard Loom Trousers £39.99
I like the tailored and cropped style of these trousers, but most of all I like the Jacquard design and colours. They are perfect for a smart casual evening look, but could also be dressed down with a chunky knit. 

2. Next Check Dress £55
Tartan is sweeping the stores at the moment but the colours of this dress offer you a glam not in-your-face tartan.  For taller girls it can be hard to find knee-length dresses and skirts but this one looks like it will keep you work appropriate.  The rouched side and capped sleeves turn this dress into a designer look-a-like.

3. Zara Three Quarter Length Puffer Jacket £89.99
I feel guilty announcing this... but I absolutely love puffer jackets. I know that they are not the most fashionable of items but wearing a puffer is like being wrapped in a duvet and quite frankly there is nothing I want more than to be wrapped in a duvet whilst standing on a train platform in winter. I was delighted to see this Zara puffer as I feel it has taken the puffer to a new level of fashionable. The navy and gold colours add sophistication and the zipped collar, gold edged tassels and two sprung belt add style. These features, combined with 30% feather and 70% grey duck down (aka a duvet), scream "buy me now".  I really need this in my life. 

4. River Island @ ASOS Chelsea Girl Dobby Spot Blouse £25
I think subconsciously I have chosen this blouse in homage of Chelsea - her name and her love for collars, and not to mention my love for lace. I also really love the keyhole detailing at the back of the shirt.  Again, I think this could be worn with a pair of jeans or a pair of smart trousers - take your pick!  

5. Zara Embroidered Fantasy Skirt £79.99
I must admit I wasn't initially taken aback by this skirt but then I clicked on the zoomed-in image and thought 'wow!'.  The pearls and quilted embroidered pattern are unique but also reminded me of a Chanel design. I think this skirt is totally classic chic.  

That's it for another Wednesday Winners, thank you for reading! Are there any of these items that you will be purchasing this week? Or do you have your eye on any other items out there? Also, what do you think about purchasing a winter coat already?! We love to hear from you - so please add a comment or send us a tweet!
