I Glove Them!
As a general rule I either have really cold or really sweaty hands. As it’s winter, they are currently constantly cold so I have been searching for some mittens to keep them super warm and cosy. I have seen the perfect ones from Ugg.
|Ugg Mittens, £100|
Just like the boots, made from real sheepskin which makes them extra warm, these gloves are stylish as well as practical. Although you won’t be able to use your fingers individually! £100 is a bit steep for mittens that you can only really wear for three months at the most, however, they are well made and ooze quality so just like the boots they should last for years, I’ve had my chesnut long Uggs for 4 years and still wear them regularly.
However, if your winter budget just won’t stretch to those (I know mine won’t what with Christmas parties/meals coming up and spoiling my boyf with presents) there are plenty of cheaper alternatives.
|Soul Cal @ Republic, £12|
I’ve recently become a big fan of Republic since they decided to ditch their chavvy image (think Henleys and G-Star, brands seen only on lads with gold chains and shaved heads) and become more bohemian (patterned leggings? Check. Oversized knits? Check. Faux feathers and fur? Check.). These mittens are faux sheepskin but they look just as snuggly and I actually prefer the lighter colour. Plus they are over £80 cheaper, and think what you could buy with those savings! And right now at http://www.republic.co.uk/ there is 25% off everything, just enter XMAS25 at the checkout.
But I’ve done even better than those penny saving mittens by hopping into my pocket’s favourite place, Primark. I bought almost identical gloves in a slightly lighter colour for only £3! They are very cosy and although they probably won’t last too long, that just gives me a perfect excuse to buy a new pair next year!
