With each new season comes a wardrobe refresh so I headed to West Quay in Southampton to do just that. Your 5 is an event held in Hammerson shopping centres around the country in which you find your 5 key pieces for the upcoming season. You may have seen my Your 5 post in June where I heading into West Quay to find my key pieces for Summer and this time it was all about cosy knits, winter boots and the perfect coat.

I'd made an appointment for the morning so with a latte in hand, I headed in to find my favourites. Your 5 were concentrating on finding five key comfort pieces to inject into your wardrobe with the knits, coats, boots, wide leg trousers and skirts being the main show. I was talked through each of the pods and all my chosen items were collected on to their iPad so they could email all my favourite picks to me when we were done. There's always a mix of price points and I discovered some beautiful pieces from New Look, John Lewis and Karen Millen.
I always love taking part in the Your 5 events as it's a great way to discover styles and designers you wouldn't usually wear. It also gives me an excuse to add some new pieces to my wardrobe. I can't wait for the next Your 5 event to take place at West Quay.
