For lots of people, January means a fresh start, a time for organisation and new exercise regimes, but for me it means becoming some sort of slug creature and only leaving the house when absolutely necessary. For the last few weeks pretty much all I’ve worn is pyjamas, and clothes seem to be a bit of a distant memory by now. I’m going to have to head back into the real world next week once uni starts again, but I will be attempting to wear things as close to pyjamas as possible. Lots of slouchy jumpers and leggings and absolutely nothing with a belt. This wishlist might as well be called “things which are mega unflattering” as, no doubt, they will all make me look like a sack of potatoes. At the moment, however, I just DO. NOT. CARE.

The Topshop dress is probably the thing I’m most likely to buy from this wishlist. It’s made of sweatshirt material so would be really comfy, but it has a nipped in waist and fitted top half to make it look like I’ve actually made some effort. I really like the pattern on it, but I’m slightly worried the colour of it would be too close to my ghostly pale skin! I think it would look great teamed with a deep coloured snood and a pair of chunky boots. I was very close to ordering these boots the other day, but I think I want to go and try them on in the shop first. Who knew UGG did such nice boots?

I quite fancy a slouchy army style jacket as my winter jacket is quite formal looking. I really like this navy one from River Island but I’m concerned that it might be a) hideously unflattering on me and b) not warm enough for Scottish winters.

I have been wanting a pair of joggers for ages but haven’t got round to buying any yet. These H&M ones seem pretty good and cheap, so I’m sure they’d do the job nicely. I wouldn’t wear them outside, OBVS, but they would be great for lounging round the flat. If I’m not going out I won’t bother getting dressed just to sit around the house (why do people do this? PYJAMAS RULE.) and usually as soon as I get home I change into a hoody and leggings. I think joggers (or sweatpants if we’re being posh) would be a bit warmer and marginally more presentable than leggings, maybe?

What’s on your wishlist at the moment?

    I love that Topshop jumper! Might hunt it out while I'm in town tomorrow and give it a try 🙂

  • Kirsty M says:

    Eeep I love the jacket! But you're probably right about it enduring the Scottish weather. I had a similar one last winter which became sandblasted against my body after ten minutes in the Edinburgh rain. Excellent. Love the dress too!xx

  • Yasmine says:

    I have those sweatpants from h&m and they're really soft but they like, get bigger every time I wear them!

  • Love the Topshop dress – even more so now you've mentioned it's made of sweater material! It has sleeves as well, which is something I love in a dress.

  • Maria Fallon says:

    Absolutely nothing wrong with being a slug! I try to when I get to chance, just be lazy and enjoy myself. I LOVE love love the sweater and scarf! On my wish list is just more knit hats and sweaters and boots. xx

  • Amy says:

    I really love that dress, it's my favourite dress-shape too! 🙂
    I'm the same about pjs, if I'm not leaving the house, I always just wear my pjs – they're super comfy! Much more so than most clothes. I'm after some joggers to laze around the house in too!

    Finally. Someone who UNDERSTANDS! Jammy days do not make us lazy! My mum always moans at me if I don't get dressed (or if I shower then just pop on fresh jammies) but really, what is the point in dirtying clothes if you're not going anywhere? It's just more laundry. And I have enough laundry as it is thanks. That topshop dress is gorgeous, but I can see what you mean about the colour – maybe a few choice accessories (or a bright cardi?) could counter this? Xo

  • Milly says:

    I adore the dress! I love being snug and warm in the winter – I love blankets so much, I even have one in my office! x

    I love the boots and Topshop jumper 🙂

    Most things on my wish list at the moment are beauty related, there are quite a few things I really want to try this year including Laura Mercier's tinted moisturiser! xx

  • Lauren says:

    The dress is lovely. I'm with you on not getting dressed just to sit around the house, I like to be completely comfortable, also if I have been out I get changed as soon as I get in! xx
