Cold hands, adventurous heart

I have no rose tinted tales from the nineties for you today only an outfit...
Vintage 70s suede jacket , 60s dress, 50s booties, 90s lurex jumper, M&S tights, knitted mohair hat, soapstone & macrame earrings, a plethora of bangly things (all thrifted from car boot sales and markets)
We went for a quick stroll around the park earlier and it was VERY cold.
I forgot to bring my gloves, so by the time we got to the park I had what I would describe as "hypothermic hands".
Last time I felt like my hands were going to break clean off was in February last year when I was kneeling on a training platform at the bottom of Wraysbury lake.
The water was three degrees Celsius and my life was flashing in front of my eyes.
Still one of the best experiences I had in 2012.
I'm absolutely hankering to go diving again...hurry up spring!
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend :)
Lot's of love,
Jennie

What a cute little outfit and you look gorgeous in it. It looks a bit skating dress to me for some reason. Love the 50s booties, the little lurex jumper and the knitted hat.

I nearly bought a lovely fur muff the other week in a charity shop, but didn't and now, unlike Edith Piaf, I have regrets.xxx

I got to remember "jumper" means "sweater" in English. Stay warm!
