Cosy Style In Winter

I've been spoilt this Christmas with lots of woolly and cosy items for my wardrobe. Working from home in winter can easily tempt me into wearing my onesie and slippers all day. But, as much as I want to be warm and comfy when I'm working I still feel you have to have a routine of getting dressed...
