What a treat in store for me this week! After watching the Golden Globes live on Sunday it means I have Girls, Downton Abbey and some Real Housewives recorded for my viewing pleasure! In addition I’ve also picked up a new book at last – American Psycho. MM has been encouraging me to read it for some time now…I hope it’s as good as he says it is – we rarely enjoy the same books! It’s the perfect weather for staying in and curling up on the sofa with a good book – it’s wet, wet, wet here.
Braving the rain today I opted for a pair of my Frye’s. Don’t panic there are no leather soles here and all I’m doing is walking from the car to the office – not enough exposure to warrant the Hunters. These are the Veronica Slouch and they are a gorgeous dark, nutty brown – is that a good description? Maybe not. The jumper is one of my favorites from AllSaints – the Ellil in smoke. I love this jumper so much – the cut and drape are perfect and the buckle detail on the neck gives this knit a bit of edginess. I’m wearing it over an H&M vest dress for warmth – plus I find they keep some of the lumps and bumps at bay, working as a smoother or a shaper. The jeans are Hudson Collins. It’s five weeks since my last haircut and I’m desperate for one again – thank goodness I have an appointment on Friday – it’s feeling rather bouffant in this weather.
I found a photo of an outfit I wore last week that I forgot to post. I’m doing it now as it’s a rare photo of me in a skirt – the H&M Grey Concept skirt, worn with a Target belt and a Zara top. The fabulous Boden military jacket is from AW 2011. If you ever see one on eBay don’t miss out – it has the most beautiful fit and is lined with purple velvet. The boots are REALLY old Loft suede booties that I haven’t worn for years. It’s great to rediscovering items and now having easy access to them in my new closet!
