Snow! Snow! SNOWWWW!!! IT'S SO PRETTY AND WHITE AND SPARKLY AND IMPOSSIBLE!!!
And I bloody well hate it.
So the weekend, right? Amazing. I went to two great birthday celebrations on Saturday night, the second of which was Amy's birthday party where I shouted myself hoarse at karaoke (I don't SING at karaoke, for goodness sake) and had Fiona-cuddles then I got out the pub and THERE WAS SNOW. And it was lovely! I had a hat, a snood, two pairs of tights and sensible boots, I was equipped. And SMUG. I got to my station - the trains were running fine, with just enough time for me to get a Starbucks. "What's everyone moaning about?" I muttered, checking Twitter. "It's just a bit of SNOW."
And then I tried to get a cab. Um. And then I tried to get another cab. And then I tried that two more times. And then I called Sha and begged to stay on her sofa. Scientific proof that smugness causes PROBLEMS. It was fine, though - I am just flipping grateful I have nice friends within walking distance of the station who don't mind lending me a pair of polka dot pyjamas at 2am.
I got home in the end, and ended up sleeping til midday. Sunday = LOST. Right? Wrong! I did two loads of washing! I made brownies! I finished THREE Powerpoint presentations for work! And even BRUSHED MY HAIR.
So, in honour of that and STILL haven't daylight left, I took some photos. Of me! Wearing a dress! It's kind of a boring dress. It's kind of like the dress I featured last week. But this time - THIS TIME - I did layering. This little blouse has, lately, become my go-to item to make high-necked dresses more interesting. In fact, the other day, I wore it with a red sleeveless dress, and then was fearful that I looked like a little girl in a pinafore on her first day of nursery. Apparently I didn't. Damn.
Dress - Closet at A|Wear
Belt c/o Matalan
Blouse - Matalan
Hat & Boots - New Look
Tights - Pretty Polly
It actually wasn't THAT cold. I mean, LAYERING. And for some of the photos, I wore this big ugly cardigan which I love because it's SO warm although ultimately too ugly to let it be featured in an outfit post but when I took it off, it was okay!
Maybe the hat was magical.
