I really should be working on building my new page but instead I’m taking pictures in the rain and posting here, because it’s what I know and it’s become so familiar now! We’re only 2 weeks into 2017 though, so there’s still plenty of time. It was a miserable and wet Monday, so I’ve gone with my trusty calf length leather DMs (that don’t look like DMs!) and a super old snuggly brown coat with raw seams and Teddy style collar detail.
The British spring is an incredibly strange season. It’s sunny, it snows, it’s windy, it rains, it’s dry, it’s humid. One day it feels bitterly cold, the next you’re sweltering on public transport and longing for a cool breeze. I’ve got so many ideas for summer styles but the season is just not ready for them yet, so here is today’s winter outfit on a spring day. I bought this jumper on a whim just before Christmas last year. I owned precisely one Christmas style jumper before this. It’s very tasteful, with a grey and white sequinned reindeer design. One Christmas jumper is not enough though, so when I saw this one in the sales in H&M for £10 it was a no brainer. The Fair Isle design is a timeless (albeit wintery) classic, and the black and blue colours go with pretty much everything.
