Pulling the curtain in the morning to reveal yet another day of blanket cloud clad sky is really starting to have a zapping effect.
The cold and damp air stealthily sneaks its way into the house though numerous gaps in the window frames and my fingers go numb as I am tapping on the keyboard.
I've taken to keeping my hat on indoors in a vain attempt to stave off the creeping chills.
For the past three years, we've always been getting ready to go away on holiday around and about now, escaping the dreichness for a few weeks in the sun and returning just in time for spring kick off .
We went on our magical mystery tour much earlier this year and as a result this winter has felt painfully drawn out. I can't wait for spring and I'm sure I'm not the only one?!
Whilst I was sifting through a couple of bags yesterday, to find stock for this Saturday's market, I came across the tiger stripe mini skirt that goes with my 'rockstar coat'.
I also unearthed a mystery vintage leather coat, that I can't even remember buying...
maybe I was sleep-thrifting at some point, who knows?!
Here is today's ensemble:
|Vintage 70s leather coat, 00s tiger stripe mini skirt, 90s floral lace leotard (twice this week), 70s shirt, 90s velvet platform boots, 70s velvet artists beret, stocking style tights & amber look pendant necklace.|
I know that wearing a mini skirt is probably not the cleverest move when it's Baltic outside (and indoors) but I was just so chuffed to find that it still fits me that I simply had to put it on ;)
Thank goodness there's music like this to keep me warm...
For raising body temperature and shifting a gloomy mood, nothing beats dancing around the room like an unhinged madwoman for half an hour, I highly recommend it :)
What is your top tip for bashing the winter blues into submission?
Lot's of love,
