Hello little loves! Fancy seeing you here!? Yesterday was a cold, long day of town and city hopping, coupled with celebrating my Granny’s birthday (it’s tomorrow!) and balancing real life with everything else. For the fanciful occasion, I chose this ensemble from the depths of my wardrobe but er, didn’t end up wearing up it on account of -7°C weather. One of these weeks, I’ll manage to stray away from layering up like I’m dressing for the North Pole, but erm, what is up with the British weather at the moment? Of course I shot these photos before the snow arrived. There’s nothing prettier and more peaceful than watching the snow fall from the comfort of your own home with candles and blankets aplenty. It’s been a little shock to the system with my commute to and from London in tow, along with broken heating in the office, and I’ve spent much of this week working from home, bundled in a duvet with a fever for company.
Hinting at the ever-reigning blazer-under-coat debate, yesterday I opted for one of my favourite Ever Ours dresses paired with the newest addition to my jacket collection. Meet my pretty blazer from River Island! I picked this up in the RI sale after dithering for a week, and fell in love with the cropped sleeves, loose fit and slightly 80’s feel to it. Perfect for making my polka dot and pleats dress choice ‘work’, just about, in the cold snap, along with boots (swapping these flats up for heeled boots in the evenin’) and my current everyday bag.
Right, I’m going to head off, finish my lunch-at-my-desk and indulge in a Friday afternoon Starbucks! What are you up to this evening? x
