 Coat - Ellos
Cardi - Mum's/Primark
Dress - New look
Hat - H&M
Shoes - Grandma's old

These are from a while ago, but not much has changed. It was snowing quite heavily and I thought it'd look pretty in photos, but, of course, the snowing slowed down as soon as I got outside with my camera and started again once I got in. What kind of witchcraft is that? And although these are from a month ago and it's technically spring now, we still definitely have at least this much snow. Instead of my usual moaning, I'm not bothered though. I'm off skiing later anyway!

I've had this winter coat in Finland for the last few years, so it hasn't been worn at all lately. It's almost like having a new coat (although I have the bottom button missing..)! While it has been the weather for a warm coat, it hasn't been one for hats like this.. But this was still in my pre-haircut days and I felt like a hat wasn't optional. Although, I do actually own proper winter hats that I could've worn, ha! I'm also wearing the very fashionable winter boots that were my grandmother's. None of my shoes are suitable for weather that is either from 0 to -10°C or below -20°C. Since that is most of the time, Ive been wearing these despite the fact they're about 4 sizes too big for me. They're warm and comfortable and fit a few woolly socks in them, though!

That's probably enough weather related chat, I'll see you soon! :-)

wow that's friggin' cold!! oh i love your winter look. i thought the brown coat was so stylishly cool, but i spoke too soon because the brown coat AND the chunky grey sweater is a dream winter combo.
