The weather has turned - the air is a little cooler - I can hear the rain falling outside. Yippee! I can wear a jumper!
Primark Cream Tape Yarn JumperAnd jeans.
New Look Slim Boyfriend Jeans (2 years old)
I feel like me again. Scruffy me. But that's me. To a tee.
Office Namesake BootsSo no more dresses for the time being. I'm all dressed out. You spend half your time wishing it was warmer so you can wear something lighter and summery like a dress and then you spend half your time thinking - when can I wear jeans again? And a jumper.
I ran through Primark the other day with the sole intention of doing a return. But no one really runs through Primark blinkered do they? I always have a quick scan of the scarves - no new interesting oversized ones at the mo - any funky jeans - too many funky jeans actually - how about a nice jumper which doesn't look like it's going to go "pooouff" as soon as you are anywhere near a naked flame? And lo and behold - I found one. I found a jumper that is - but it probably should carry some naked flame warning but I liked it.
It's just a nice tape yarn jumper which suits me fine as it's light and airy enough for the temperatures we are having at the moment - it's unlikely to pill (I have a real bugbear about pilling) and it would have probably cost about £35-45 in somewhere like Topshop but it cost me £12 so I'm as happy as a happy person who got a bargain £12 jumper. I can wear any colour top I like underneath it to funk it up. I've gone for for a strange flourescent violet/pink tee but I couldn't resist the colour.
Cheap and colourful.
So I've not totally bowed to the weather and gone for my usual grey blue grunge tones - I chose to have a little colour today to cheer the soul and keep up the spirits. And because it is raining as I type, I smile because I don't have to water the geraniums I potted yesterday.
What are you wearing on this wet dreary day?
