Will you be shopping the high street?

The shops officially open today – 15th June 2020, here in the UK for non-essential shopping. Will you be shopping on the high street? I am not one to window shop so this question is very easy for me to answer. I won’t be shopping the high street but will carry on with my online shopping as usual. Going to the shops is always a drag for me, especially with the kiddies. I rather just shop online conveniently from the comfort of my home and online shopping is even more appealing in times like this when we are dealing with a pandemic.

The new COVID-19 guidelines for the shops opening have been announced. High street shops are expected to implement relevant hygiene and social distancing measures to protect customers and staff. Shops like Marks & Spencer and Ikea will be imposing restrictions on the number of customers in the stores, which is good to know. Clothes fitting and make-up section will not be available to customers, which is understandable. I never liked trying on clothes in stores, so I won’t miss that bit at all, but I know a good number of people will struggle with the fact that these facilities are no longer available for now.

Will it work?

It will be interesting to see how the first week of non-essential shopping goes. Will people go shopping or not? I wonder if the social distancing and relevant hygiene measures will be adhered to in the shops. This is all brand new and you never know how it will all look like in practice. I also wonder how the actual shopping will go. Will customers be allowed to touch the goods or not? I will be keeping my eyes open on social media to catch up on the news on that. Twitter is my favourite social media platform for anything newsworthy.

 

 

Outfit post: A Winter Coat

Hey fashion lovers! How is the cold treating you? The weather has been painfully cold here in the last few days. It has been so hard getting out of the house in the morning run. But thanks to my amazing Helly Hensen coat, the school runs have been a lot warmer. This beautiful winter coat is made to withstand the chilly winter season and it does just that. I love the simple design and the camouflage colour is a beauty. This is now my favourite winter coat.

I like to have a few coats/jackets for the different seasons. For winter, I like my coats a little heavier to withstand the cold weather. Having hoods on a few are ideal, plus they usually need to be waterproof for when I have to be out and about in the rain. I like to spend a bit more on my outerwear because they have to be great quality to withstand the harsh weather conditions. And quality usually means more money, which I am happy to spend  as long as it is good value for money.

This Helly Hensen Svelbard Parka is good value for me. It is my second winter coat from the brand and I know their coats are top quality pieces that usually last for years.

Outfit Post – Wearing Hoodlum Lamorna Faux Fur Hood

I wrote about this Hoodlum Lamorna Faux Fur Hood last week and how it would make a great gift this Christmas. Well, I finally got the opportunity to wear mine the other day and I am so glad I did. The hood is so pretty. It is great for the very cold winter days and nights ahead. The design is amazing and it is great quality. This Lamorna Faux Fur Hood by Hoodlum Clothing is from the limited Winter Lux Collection. It is designed to combat colder weather. The lovely handmade cosy hood is lined with luxury faux fur that locks in warmth, which makes it the perfect addition to my winter wardrobe.

Here is a brief description of the luxury faux fur hood from Hoodlum Clothing Brand

Superior Grey Husky Faux Fur with Natural Herringbone Harris Tweed

This herringbone has a subtle combination of nature tones that evoke the wilds of the Cornish countryside. The Grey Husky faux fur perfectly colour matches the earth colours of the tweed with its multi-tonal greys and black flecks. This is would look great on a man as well as a women.

A handcrafted hardwood button fastens the hood.

Will sit as a shawl when worn down.

Did you know?

The natural Herringbone Harris Tweed on this hood is a limited edition. Made by an independent weaver on the Isle of Harris they only create small runs of each design.
