Another day, another cold weather outfit! At least this time it isn’t another tea dress and boots, I do like to surprise you all occasionally….
This is another outfit worn amid the chaos and panic that ensued upon the arrival of The Beast From The East! Holy cow, was it cold that week! I really had no choice but to wrap up as warm as possible (I obviously also wore a coat…), and this is one of the thickest, snuggliest jumpers I own. It certainly did the job – a little too well actually, because my office actually has a weird micro-climate all of it’s own and was strangely warm that day, except for the toilets which appeared to have an Arctic gale blowing down the corridor…. Anyhow, warm it might be, but it is basically just a wooly black jumper and not the most interesting or feminine pieces, so I felt like the ensemble needed something else to dress it up a bit and feel more ‘me’, especially since I also had to wear those flat boots again in case of a deluge of snow!
It felt a little too chunky to go with something floaty, so I went instead with this little mini skirt, gifted to me by my Sister last Christmas. It’s a lot shorter than I would normally wear to work, but given how bundled up I was I was confident I wasn’t flashing enough to be inappropriate! I also dug out this hat, which by some miracle was an exact match to the beige threads in the skirt, which was a happy coincidence really, as I only went looking for one to stay warm!
Anyway, it did the trick and I stayed snuggly warm all day, while still managing to feel a little girly at the same time!
How have you guys been faring with the cold?
