It's cold, drizzly and dark at 5pm so it's time to up the comfort factor with these must-have items for days indoors.
You can’t get much comfier than this cardigan/robe hybrid from The White Company – it’s basically a blanket with arms. Stylish and minimal design with dropped shoulders and deep pockets, it features a dash of luxurious alpaca wool for added warmth.
Treat your toes to a pair of these hand-dyed bed socks from Thread Tales. Available in four colours, they’re made from 100% recycled cashmere, plus there’s the option to personalise with initials – a lovely touch for a luxe Christmas gift.
Light it up
Cold, dark evenings call for candles – and lots of them. We love this calming English lavender scent from Long Barn in Winchester, made with essential oils from their own lavender farm.
It’s prime time to add a little Nordic style to your winter wardrobe, and this Gatsy pullover from Isabel Marant is perfect for lounging as well as going out out. Pick yours up from Lymington boutique Stanwells.
Sheepskin slippers are an A/W staple and this year we’re coveting this slip-on pair from Southampton boutique W. J. French & Son. Made from premium suede lined with Australian sheepskin, they’re super-soft, stylish and come in four pretty colours.
Coffee, tea, hot chocolate (with lashings of marshmallows and cream, of course) – whatever your drink of choice, look damn stylish sipping it with this glazed stoneware mug, exclusive to Anthropologie.
