That cold north wind doth blow!




Hello again!




I've seen on the weather forecast that parts of the UK have been having snow over the past few days, brrrrrrrrr! Well, not here thank goodness, but we're still feeling that brisk north wind. So much so, that I've dug out a scarf to go with my latest outfit. I rarely wear scarves. I'm just not a scarf person. I struggle to make them part of my look; they seem to stick out at funny angles or just sit in a big lump under my chin in the most unflattering of ways. 




Yesterday however, as I was making a dash for the door, I thought I might get away with not wearing a coat if I topped things off with a cosy scarf. And hey-presto, this one seemed to work! After a bit of a jiggle and windy round thing and then a looping through thing it looked like this. Get me, with a scarf, eh? A bit of personal blogging history being made. I'd bought this colour co-ordinated gem in Primark a few years ago and of course, this is the first time I've worn it.




This is only the second time I've worn my Adidas corduroy trouser suit and I'm happy to report that I'm still in love with it. I love the colour - coral or blush or salmon pink - call it what you like. The fabric too is ace; soft and cuddly and best of all the trousers have a touch of stretch meaning that they don't bag at the knees after the first time you sit down.




I opted for black and white as my accent colours by way of this gingham blouse which ties in nicely with my white and black boots. The blouse is very old indeed, but came from Asda and has worn well. The sleeves are very feminine don't you think? My sunglasses are old faithfuls from Quay Australia.




My rings and leather belt are all pre-loved items. The handbag was a Christmas present from my son, as were the pink leather gloves in the first shot.




I love the ribbon go-faster stripes down the outside of the trouser legs. My boots of the moment are here again - white patent leather boots (by Besson) - cos they work well with this look.




And yes, the update on the camera situation is that I bought a replacement last week and here it is in action. Lora is back working with me for a couple of months and she was very happy to take my photos. I feel I may have to look into pricing up a heavy duty expanding tripod for those times when I have to go it alone. I've had an expensive month as my washing machine broke down and I had to buy a new one last week too. Sometimes life's just like that, eh?


Thanks for swinging by again. I'll be back on Monday!

  1. What a spectacular outfit, Anna, from the scarf (congrats on popping your scarf cherry, lol!) to the lovely gloves to that "I wants it!" bag. I adore that corduroy suit! Please send it to me, and don't forget to include the blouse, please and thank you.

    Yes, big things like that tend to happen in chunks, don't they??

  2. I'm not a scarf,,wearer,, either. Never know how to wear them although they are 1000s of options. But it does add something extra! Love the gingham blouse with the red. Hope to see you on my Fancy Friday link up party.

  3. Oh no re the washing machine! I have a more heavy duty tripod which my father in law gave me (in fact he gave me both!) and it is good though CBC did something to it to mess it up!

    I adore your pink trouser suit- the material looks soooo comfy!x
