Blogmas: Day fifteen | Knitted winter wishlist

I have found some various knitted items around the shops recently that I am in love with! So I thought I would throw together a winter wishlist which might spark inspiration for your wardrobe to.


This jumper just looks like the cosiest of things. I can imagine sitting in this in January, writing up my essays feeling all snug. For me at the moment, my fashion sense is quite baggy and over-sized. I just think this jumper looks quite laid back, but also very stylish. Something you can throw on without having too much to think about, however still look like you’ve made the effort. You can purchase it from TopShop here.



I love this little roll neck. I think it is ideal for the winter months and can be put on on its own, under a jumper or dungarees. It is something that can be layer but is also a stand out piece on its own and I feel like every wardrobe needs an item of clothing like this. Again, it is from TopShop and you can purchase it here.



I think this top is just adorable. It is a knitted Tshirt which is something you don’t see that often and I think it is gorgeous. I love the colour and neck line. It’s something for those warmer days but still thick enough to keep you toasty throughout Winter. It’s such a cute piece! You can purchase it at River Island here.

There’s a lot more winter warmers which I think are so beautiful at the moment in store, but these are my current top three! Let me know what you’re wrapping up in this winter in the comments below.

Vintage and Collars


I visited my sister in Leeds at the weekend and in true Gillibrand sister style, we decided to do some vintage shopping. I wasn’t really searching for anything in particular, though if something caught my eye I wasn’t going to say no.

We went into a little church that was putting on one of those £15 per Kilo vintage fair. I was rummaging around and after finding a gorgeous red checkered coat and a slouchy blue shirt I came across this knitted piece. I’ve never really seen anything like it before, but it is really gorgeous. It’s kind of like a short sleeved crocheted jumper in the colours of beige, purple and yellow. The shoulders are slightly gathered which gives them that 80s poof-y look. I had no idea what to wear it with but it was so comfy and cosy that I instantly fell in love and couldn’t leave it behind.

Since returning back to Manchester, I have been routing through my cupboard to see what I could pair it with and decided that it looks really good with an off white shirt underneath.

I have been absolutely loving this look recently. Wearing something knitted with a little shirt collar poking out – I just think it looks adorable. I feel like this winter, my style is going to be all about layering. You can’t really go wrong with throwing on a shirt, jumper and scarf. It looks awesome and it’s extra toasty at the same time!

Let me know what you think of my vintage find. I’d love to hear your thoughts x
