Snow Day!!!!

Today it snowed and it was FUN!!




 We've had a fair bit of snow around this time for the past 3 years and this time has been the most fun! We took Neo out on a sledge and had an epic snowball fight (which Paul won hands down... i throw like such a girl!) and then we built a little snow teddy bear. I'm exhausted now!

 I put layered outfit together this morning and then changed for snow play this afternoon. I didn't realise when i put it together that there's actually 3 types of pattern going on (stars, check and animal)  but i kinda loved all the different pieces together! Plus super layers meant warmth. The tights i have on are fleece lined and are the best invention ever! To go play in the snow i put my jeans on over them and my   Lands' End coat which is unbelievable warm. I had the hood up and took it down as my head felt so warm! That was until Paul got me in the face with a snow ball... ugh!! It's his birthday today so i shall let him off!!


Looking at this photo i look like im phony laughing which im totally not,(although i am actually rather good at fake laughing and fake enthusiasm .. its a skill!) I had literally slipped and then slipped again and could not compose my balance at all. I do love these boots but they have ZERO grip. Best kept for non snowy slippy days me thinks.

  1. I think this is my favorite outfit of yours! I love the plaid under the star print, especially with the little tie at the neck! Glad you had a wonderful snow day! Happy Friday!

  6. I love this outfit and it sounds like you had such a fun day. I want to see the snow teddybear!! We have had lots of snow but my work forced us all in (I work in local government, they would make me go in if I was dead I think haha) but it was fine I guess, I still have the whole weekend of snow to enjoy :)

    I prefer to watch the snow from inside my cosy living room all snuggled up reading a magazine with a hot drink. But I do like sledging and walks in the snow when all wrapped up too :)

  8. We had snow today and it was wonderfully fun too. I didn't manage to pull it off as stylishly as you did though. Where on earth do you get fleece lined tights, please?

  9. Fleece lined tights are the best thing ever! I love this outfit, that jumper is amazing! We've been promised snow for days now but so far we've only had a small sprinkling, I really hope it gets thicker so I can take the puppies out to play in it (Mania has never seen proper snow before) xo
