The Edwardian Paradise.
Last year, I had the opportunity to explore the idyllic Forest of Dean and see the true beauty of the British countryside. From hiking to camping, being in nature triggers my thought processes and forces answers to questions like: “what is the meaning of my life?” or “how can I make things work better for me?” – questions I struggle to answer when stuck in my daily routine.
As a savvy adventurer, I often pick up my Oyster card and go as far as it can take me. So, several weeks ago, I decided to visit Hampstead and see what else this area has to offer. I stumbled across this breathtaking Georgian arbour and terrace in the Hill Garden (pictured above). It was surprisingly quiet and empty for a Saturday afternoon. *probably because it was raining, d’uh* But that didn’t stop me from scouting around for hours and catching up with my blogger mate Ollie.
I was wearing my favourite parka from TOG24. The rugged waterproof fabric, teamed with a snug Sherpa-and-quilted lining and sandwiched with a layer of synthetic insulation which keeps out the chills. Therefore, this parka is ideal for long walks during winter months. *brrr*
It seems like low temperatures are going to stay in England for another month. *cries inside* So, I had no other choice but to upgrade my winter wardrobe once again with layers that can weather the cold. I usually go for a leather jacket or a thick sweater but I think it’s time to get some serious winter gear.
The other day, I popped onto TOG24 website to pick up a few pieces to keep me warm and cosy until mid-March. *because it might be the coldest one in years, yikes* Luckily, I found some pretty cool pieces. I paired up this puffy red jacket (pictured above) with my favourite denim and black boots. The jacket itself is a great long-term investment because it costs less than most comparable jackets in the market (under £100).
The textures play so well together and the way the bright jacket boosts the overall outfit is just amazing. So, if you’re looking to upgrade your wardrobe – definitely check TOG24 and indulge yourself in an extensive collection of winter clothes!
