ThriftMyStyle Favourite Trend- The Sweatshirt, Plus Some Carine Roitfeld x Uniqlo

Hi everyone! Its a lovely winters morning and with that in mind it brings me on to what my signature daytime style for this season is gravitating to. I've been finding of late that I have indeed adopted a 'style uniform' which my lovely blogger friend Michelle at My Fashionable 40s mentioned in her fabulous post on 'Wise Style Words' and certainly for me it's all about the sweatshirt, jeans, trainers and chosen winter coat or jacket on top.
  So my recent thrifting trips have seen me adding to my growing sweatshirt collection this week with a couple more finds as seen below:



I already had the black DRMTM sweatshirt (new from a couple of years ago) and the United Colors of Benetton one (recent thrift find), which are both firm favourites and worn regularly. The Swedish Cheap Monday sweatshirt was a find from the Cancer Research charity shop for just £4.20 and literally 10 minutes later I found the grey cropped style Gap sweatshirt in the British Heart Foundation charity shop for just £4.30!! 

The Cheap Monday sweat is ideal for wearing right now-a darker shade of grey for winter and I'm really loving logo tops as they work so effortlessly with jeans and trainers for a stylish, on the go outfit that is pretty comfortable too!! The light grey Gap sweatshirt is an ideal Spring/Summer one which I'm sure will be a regular wear.


A new sweatshirt which my lovely son got for me is this logo sweat by Nicce London- it has a lovely fleecy lining and is a crop style which works well with higher waisted jeans. 


Sweatshirts never date and fpr me are a real style essential- the Benetton I found last month is an original 90s one which has stood the test of time and I'll be on the look out for other retro sweatshirts or T-shirts this year on my thrifting trips!!

Onto some more style inspiration from the First Lady of Parisian Fashion-Carine Roitfeld who has brought a chic collab with Uniqlo- hooray!!

I'm lusting over the blouson jackets-the reversible ones are gorgeous and the camo pieces are also on my radar too!! 






A really stylish and amazing collection which is so chic, wearable and on point for this season- are you tempted to indulge in any of the pieces??

What is currently in your daytime wardrobe this season- do you have a signature style for daytime or do you like a different look every day? Thank you so much for stopping by to read and comment too- its so very much appreciated especially when my posts are quite sporadic and irregular- I'm hoping to post more in general so please do continue to "watch this space!!"

Uniforms make life SO easy (if a tad boring)....
I definitely have MINE - grey or black mid-calf length skirts topped with black or grey long-sleeve (winter) t-shirts. Since I use regular detergent with my blacks, some fading occurs over time, so my thrift store excursions always include a quick-over of the blacks. On Tuesday, I found myself a couple of pair of black flats (shoes) - also a part of my uniform!

Hi Rebecca- yes I tend to gravitate towards black too, I prefer to think of it being stylishly minimalistic lol!! Xx

Thank you for the lovely mention Sharon! I think there will be a few more additions of the sweatshirt variety in my wardrobe for Spring now that I've figured out my signature style! Slogan sweatshirts are perfect for my school run mum uniform!
How gorgeous is the Carine collection for Uniqlo, some really stunning pieces, I love the camo top....off to take a closer look! xx

Heart-stopping moment, that Carine collection. Such a stylish woman, but when you dissect what she wears you can do it without the designer price tag. But rather like some of these pieces. Wouldn't fit me, but I can still lust!!

Cute sweatshirts, so nice for the weekend. I do like a bit of marl grey. I've suddenly started buying shirts, having had a bit of luck with finally finding some that don't gape across my boobs!

At the moment I love patterned trousers and I always wear brightly coloured jumpers in the winter, I don't see the point is wearing dull drab colours in the cold seasons
