Morning ladies & happy Boxing Day!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas Day & ready for either more festivities or a day of just kicking back & chilling with their loved ones.

So today I want to talk thermals & underwear, after all good fitting underwear that doesn't have any VPLs are the foundations of any good outfit & of course come this time of year we're all looking for ways of keeping warm without necessarily having to bulk up in terms of thickness of clothes.  

I'm sharing some of my favourite buys from Uniqlo, a brand that since moving to France I have been buying underwear for the whole family from.  I have to admit I'm incredibly impressed with the quality & how well the underwear washes & lasts.  Not to mention the fact that their bras have the padding & uplift I love but without the underwiring & are incredibly comfortable to wear, not to mention the all important no VPL.  As well as my bras & pants I've also been getting all our thermal tops from them.  What I love is that there are different necklines to suit all tops, as well as different degrees of thermals to suit the varying warmth that you require.  

My final top tip is these ultra light down compact vests.  I own a couple & love the fact that they fold up to a really small size in the storage bag provided, so this time of year I always place one in my handbag to have with me incase temperatures dip.  Also living in an old large stone house they're perfect for wearing under a sweater without bulking you out & also allow me to wear my blazers & thinner coats all year round by wearing one of these underneath.

As always I've popped together my top picks above & for more details just click on any of the individual images.  In terms of sizing I find their products generally fit true to size.

Back to today & it's a simple look for a lazy Boxing Day at home consisting of films, fires & of course leftover bubble & squeak.
