We hope it's not too late to talk about some of our Christmas gifts, since we have both had such a busy time in recent weeks, we have struggled to schedule time to do our photo shoots!  Plus the weather in Yorkshire has been pretty miserable, though fortunately not as bad as in some parts of the UK and the USA.

Anne C is delighted with her Dune tote bag in a lovely shade of deep peach which was a gift from her daughter.  She is wearing it with plain black since it creates a fabulous pop of colour against the dark background.

Her black duster coat is from Canadian brand Joseph Ribkoff - of which she has a few pieces - and her black studded leggings are unknown, while her boots are from Faith a couple of years ago.  Her orange sweater ( just peaking out) was from H&M.

She can't even remember where the scarf came from, but she has similar ones in about half a dozen colours - she has a bit of a thing for scarves and probably has more than a hundred!

Anne H waas thrilled with this gift from her daughter, a fabulous soft cashmere jumper from The White Company.  She loves a simple elegant swing top that can be put on over a pair of jeans and particularly favours cashmere as it is so much warmer and cosier than wool.  You just have to get used to hand washing to ensure it keeps its shape and texture.  The White Company does cashmere so well and at an accessible price point, although never something you would class as a bargain price as that is just not what cashmere is about. This jumper is no longer available, but they do have a very similar one in a lovely porcelain tone that is still available to buy at £169.

The scarf, also a gift from her daughter, is from Jigsaw called their oversized typo modal scarf and is one that is back by popular demand.  In a lovely dusky pink tone with black and grey it will go with loads of outfits and is lightweight, so easy to wear as an accessory to dress a piece up rather than to just be practical and keep you warm. This item is still available and is in the sale at £40.

Her jeans are from John Lewis and are the Coco straight leg from the DL1961 range. These were something she gifted to herself having bought in the sale (we love doing that!).  They are no longer available in the sale but can be purchased in a different denim wash at the full price of £180... a bit steep for jeans but they are really comfy and easy to wear and will form a mainstay in her wardrobe.
