layers, spots and stripes

'Ello lovelies, hope this week is treating you well so far!
My goodness  it was cold today in work... i dont think it was much above 1 degree Celsius all day and forecast says down to minus 7 tonight! thermals and fleecy pj's are the order of the night for me!
So have i mentioned how cold my office is? my sis and me used to joke that the toilet was so cold you could pee icicles....lol!' its a  tin building thats freezing in winter and boiling in summer. Not the best for a happy work place i know!





Long sleeved striped top: new look
Blue short sleeved jumper & scarf & vest: Dorothy Perkins
Red Cords and Boots: Next


so this is what kept me quite warm for the day.. you may see me in this kind of outfit for the next few days as im just to chicken to face the cold in less clothes and the forecast is cold, cold, freezing and more cold :) im a moaning minnie when im cold so layers are the only way, that and thermals! you should see my socks under those boots... a hiker climbing Kilimanjaro would be proud!

Well lovely folks, i will love you and leave you. Hope you're staying warm!

  1. I love this outfit, all the colours work so well together. Our office at work is a nightmare too but even in winter it varies between freezing and boiling.....layers are certainly the way forward xxx

  6. I like that you treated the maroon pants as a neutral. Really pretty!

    Our office is opposite. Freezing in the summer, heat cranked in the winter. It makes for some very weird seasonal dressing. :)

  16. This outfit has so much interest to it! I love the way you put it together. I'd love if you came and linked this up at my Drab to Fab party on Friday. We celebrate turning normal clothes into fabulous outfits by using a little creativity or smarts to dress them up. (We also celebrate jazzed up recipes and DIY's). Anyway, I'd love to see you this Friday. Here's a link for all the info you need on the party!
