Winter Blues

Despite preparing for this my whole life I still have no idea how to dress for the Winter. I can count the amount of jumpers I own on one hand (excluding novelty festive ones and even then I don't scrape double digits) and you know what? Last season culottes seamed like a great investment. And they are. But maybe not the most practical for January, at least, not without a good 80dernier on your side.

Jumper - Topshop
T-shirt - Cheap Monday
Shorts - H&M
Tights - Wolford
Shoes - Debenhams

Dressing for the colder months aside, trying to get good outfit snaps has been treacherous. The idea of taking off my jacket? The worst. The fact it gets dark by around 3? Not too great either. I know, I know, it's not my first rodeo and I really should know better (I do) and I truly thought I'd come back January guns blazing (I did) but then came weather and work and the snow and other rubbish excuses the length of both my arms.  That said, I think I've finally got the hang of this whole frosty thing, and as I remind myself every year, it just involved layers and sensible shoes. So not that big a standard deviation from my usual look.

I'm hardly traffic friendly in my Winter "brights" (read: bruise inspired palette) but that's changing slowly but surely. I went to BLOW yesterday to begin what's going to be a lengthy but well worthwhile transformation. For now though I've got myself a cheeky bleach fade and mint locks. That'll just about do.

How are you handling your January blues?



  1. I so love your blog and your style! And I feel for you - I can't handle myself in the cold and am always freezing. Right now I firmly believe that winter'll never go away and I will end up as an Ice Queen.
    Can't wait to see the new hair :).
    By the way: I love to travel to Glasgow whenever I have the chance and when I see your pictures with my favourite city in the background I feel like home :D. Unfortunately it isn't easy to find a job in journalism or PR for a german girl so I have to dream about moving for another while...

  2. It might seem that snow hockey will be too challenging to master as a grown-up but starting as a possible adult is very doable and also starting as a possible adult also has the advantages. Ice dance shoes is more difficult to understand than almost every other team sporting activities because you must learn the way to skate one which just learn the way to play snow hockey.

  3. Your costume is wonderful, very stylish, very nice
