    Winter wear in Summer

    Winter Wear in Summer cover

    Ah, British Summertime! It’s nothing if not totally unpredictable. I guess that keeps us on our toes? We get to wear things that has previously been put to the back of the wardrobe ready for winter to come around again? I’m trying to put a positive spin on things here, I’m not really sure that it’s working.

    Retro Tuesday – Valentine’s Edition

    Valentine’s Day. Love it or not, it comes around every year, and it’s pretty much unavoidable. On social media, on the high street, on telly, it’s enforced romance and commercialism everywhere. To be fair, a lot of my friends have been advocating love in general, which is surely a good thing in the world today. I’m not a big fan of competitive romance, so I don’t really buy into the whole thing. I do like to nod to a trend in a small way though, so I’ve worn a red shirt and some rose quartz in honour of the schmaltz.

    Leopard and Red and Faux Fur again

    It’s sunny but it’s still cold, so I’ve grabbed my old, old tortoiseshell sunnies to go with my enormous faux fur coat. I wanted to go dancing today, unfortunately I didn’t get out of work in time but I still dressed the part!

    Faux Fur in the Cold

    The last time I wore this coat, it was a beautifully sunny day and I had a lunchtime stroll to Kensington Gardens to grab some shots for a blog post. Today was quite a different story – we had a couple of centimeters of snow last night which has melted now, but the wind is still bitter and temperatures are low.

    Faux Fur and Sunshine

    My favourite kind of winter day is when it’s crisp, cold and sunny. Today was exactly that kind of day, so I delved to the very back of my wardrobe to bring out my number one cold weather coat – this amazing chocolate brown vintage faux fur number.
