Ginger Mum Column: Biker boots and cosy cardigans

Our resident lifestyle blogger Amanda, aka Ginger Mum, has found some of the best fashion items to help you adapt your wardrobe for the colder weather…

Hello pumpkins! I’ve been scouring the shops of MK this month and wanted to share a few gems with you because, like it or not, the nights are drawing in and our wardrobes need to adapt.

School runs call for sturdy boots, food shops require a cosy cardie and last month I brought you my fave faux fur coats but I’ve found a few other crackers which need to be shared.

Like them or loathe them, it’s wall to wall biker boots across the high street this autumn so if you are buying in to the trend, these are my fave picks.

Everyone from Zara to M&S have a version, whether you go for the hardcore studs and chains look or a softer more feminine take, the options are endless. These from Kurt Geiger & M&S are great options and built to last.

Cosy wise, I’m loving this jumper from the John Lewis exclusive brand, Fenn Wright & Manson. Teamed with a pleated midi skirt, it’s an easy wear combination.

While I’m on the subject of that brand, they have the most stunning party dresses for Christmas nights out at the moment, one especially from their Amanda Holden range. Just look at this!

River Island have a great take on frill polos and longer length cardi cover ups, these are in my basket right now. And as for coats, this on trend dogtooth number would be a great addition to any wardrobe.

A little tip for any of you booking your Christmas night out this month, we went to Scandinavia Events, the Nordic tepee wonderland, for the first time last year and absolutely loved it.

It was a breath of fresh air for us after going to another local outdoor venue for years and becoming increasingly disillusioned with it. Check them out on Instagram or Facebook for all the booking details but be quick!

See you in November guys!
