Snow More

 Snow, snow and more snow.. Its been snowing again last night and this morning and now its turned to that crappy slushy stuff with more forecast for tonight! I'm getting cabin fever from being in so much. My eye- concealer is completely emptytoo and i can't get to the shops to get it, so its au natural on the eye-bags front, lol, sorry about that!
Neo has been a bit poorly too today so its been cuddles on the sofa with extra TV time and lots of movies... we've had Cars, Fox and the Hound and i introduced him to my personal favourite; The Little mermaid, He tells me off though whenever i sing along (the little mermaid has the best sing a long songs..ever!!) apparently even at 2 and a half he thinks his mother is embarrassing.... not cool.

After all your comments from you lovely concerned readers on my last post in heels i thought i'd show you some wellies! These are my MEL wellies that i've had a year or so, just sat in the bottom of the abyss that is the shoe chest in my house. I completely forgot about them! so thanks to you lovely lot it made me remember them and pull them out of  storage. I'm sure, being British and all, they will get a lot of wear!!

 I am really loving purple and red, a combo i wouldn't have thought of if it wasn't for blogging. That's the good thing about the blogasphere, inspiration is all around. Its truly wonderful! And of course the fleeced lined amazing tights were back on today...oh yes ladies.. best invention ever!! (British ladies, these are from Primark for a few quid)

Holly REALLY likes the white slushy stuff!
Dress: Dorothy Perkins
Cardi & Scarf: Tesco
Tights: Primark
MEL Wellies: Very
All really old

 Head to tippee toe another really old outfit. I had this dress when i was pregnant 3 years ago and all the other bits are from years gone by. This cabin fever of being stuck in doors with the snow is making me wanna shop and break my no spend...:-/ Seriously want a little fix hahaha! So instead of breaking my no spend i have been thinking of potential forthcoming events ie. valentines day and my anniversary. Now for a 3rd wedding anniversary tradition says to give leather. But i'm not one for strict traditions (or a big leather type person) but it did get me thinking along the lines of a nice bag... (you see where im going with this,haha!)  I stumbled across this beautiful blue bag that is a great size and colour. I'm trying to weed out a lot of my crappy bags as i have a lot, and replace and keep just 3-4 really nice practical bags. The blue Ted Baker ticks all the boxes for me. But then this impractical but stunningly sweet little bag struck a big cord in my bag  loving heart.
 But the million dollar question ladies is: 
Practical and pretty bag or cute small bag? 
(yes i have waaay to much time on my hands thanks to this snow!)

Think i'll be sending links to Hubby with a message in the Subject line of: URGENT! haha! Gentle hints, yer know, gently gently catchy monkey (or bag as the case may be;-)
 So me and my wellies are off for now.... Hope you're staying safe and warm this week lovelies!
 Ciao for now!

  1. Ssssuper cute!


  2. Nice tactic for getting the bag : ) This Christmas I left a Benefit catalogue lying around in the kitchen and ended up finding some in my stocking on Christmas day - result!

  3. Loving your eyeliner, sassy.

    check us out? follow us back?

  4. I would say get the practical bag - that way, you can use it more often!

    Really like this colour combination, I wouldn't have though of it myself either, maybe I'll have a look into my closet to see whether I have something nice in these colours, too!


  5. Wow your boots are amazing! Love your bun.

    If you get a sec, check out my latest post... Chic in Valentino.



  6. I love those boots. I've been thinking about getting some but the grips don't look great. The Little Mermaid is amazing! I'm a primary school teacher and introduced my class to it at Christmas, apparently a teacher singing along is also very uncool to five year olds! x

  7. I'm preetty sure I'm older than you- I'm 31, you said you were turning 30, or 28 or something (hoping senile mind of 31 year old has not made that up!)
    Yes, footwear much more sensible, well done! Er, would that have been old lady moi who prompted that- hee heee?!!!
    Also glad to hear I am not the only one with a shoe chest (Ikea Hol) Alas, it is not big enough!!!

  8. Eek! Dress twin and now shoe twin! I have those boots! It looks beautiful in your neck of the woods!

  9. Your right about the red and purple it is a fab combo and your scarf and lipstick, fab

  10. I always swear by those thermal tights from Primark. I have about a million pairs in all the colours. Far warmer than trousers (which I never wear). Love the wellies too!

    1. That dress is lovely and has a print on it that is so similar to a print that was used on Project Runway!

      Ali of:


  11. You'r3 so pretty! I love the color coordination.

  12. Your such a beaut! Adorable outfit too. Hope the weather wasn't too cold for you!

    Lindsey. x

  13. It's actually illegal to watch the Little Mermaid and not sing along. 100% true fact. I love the print on your dress, and vaguely jealous you have snow - I have some wellies that aren't as stylish as your boots but they do have polka dots and bows on the back. Damn British weather!

  14. This outfit is beyond adorable and Molly is so cute! I love your little snow boots :). You may be sick of the snow but I wish I had some over here!

  15. Lovely in the snow.
    Loving your booties.

  16. This is simply gorgeous! The winged eyeliner and red lipstick really complement and pull the look together <3

  17. I love those wellies, especially the bow on them. And yey for fleece lined tights, Primark must be making a fortune on these right now, they are such a genius invention :) I hope Neo feels a bit better soon, I laughed when you said he asked you not to sing, I could imagine you singing along to 'the girl who has everything' haha. I love blogging for inspiration on how to wear things too, although my bank balance probably doesn't like it though. Like you, I am trying to do the spending ban but it is not going very well so far, oh well I have spent less than I usually do so that is good enough for now. The outfit you have on today is lovely, I hope digging out cute dresses like this from your wardrobe is taking the edge off the not spending for you?

  18. This outfit is the perfect one to feel cheerful with all that snow and cold!! :-)

    I think we just might have to have a movie day today. I'm feeling cold just looking outside the window.

  19. Love this outfit, your wellies are so cute!

  20. oh my goodness. I love this outfit! And your boots. oh my. Amazing! I am so glad that I found your blog through the WWIW link party!


  21. I love how this outfit is wintery and cheerful at the same time. The colors look lovely on you. And great hair too, miss!

  22. I love all the shorter cute rainboots that we've seen in recent years. I love tall ones, but shorter ones are much lighter and easier to style.



  23. You look lovely! I'm jealous of your hair. I love the red and purple combo, too! And I've heard good things about these fleece-lined tights - might have to check some out. :)

  24. Gorgeous! From head to toe. I love every single aspect about this outfit and I adore your hair!

  25. So jealous of the snow, I know it's getting all slushy and nasty now, but the new snow should cover that up! I live in TX where we rarely get snow, but when we do we all freak out! Absolutely love those boots with the bow! So stinkin cute!

    New Follower!

  26. Your wellies are adorable with the little bow detail! Holly is so cute! I have a pit too :) I usually carry around a big handbag for work so I can put all my junk in it and use smaller handbags on the weekends. Thanks for linking up!

  27. OMG I love the wellies! You look so cute in these shots.

    Found you through the "LWIG" Link party (I figure it needs an acronym)

  28. My husband and I also follow the traditional anniversary gifts. For our third last year, he gave me a leather purse and I gave him a leather watch and a leather belt.

    You look terrific and I adore your wellies!

  29. As much as I dislike the snow and cold, I could really use a snuggly snow day. I love the floral dress against the snowy backdrop. Thanks for linking up!

  30. Love that outfit and those wellies are gorgeous. I really wanted some wellies x

  31. Thats why I hate winter: I will never be brave enough to wear something less than layers and layers of thick wool in the snow.. so in the end I just feel clumsy and ugly.. :(

  32. adorable! like a flower in winter! Love your dress, hair and shoes! And the setting is pretty, too :-)

  33. Your little rain boots are adorable! I really love the mix of color in this outfit too. Your red scarf and purple cardigan look fantastic paired together. Your eyes really pop in these pictures too! I think the red scarf up near your face is super flattering with your skin and blue eyes.


I love to hear your thoughts! Thank you for commenting :)
