What I Wore: Leftover Snow

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

I'm sure you all know that I feel pretty strongly about snow, in fact I am usually pretty crazy about it (the dogs' reactions are always fantastically funny). Snow in March though, that I am not so sure about. This unexpected flurry started on Sunday but has already close to disappeared. I'm kind of relieved, I was really happy to see the first Spring flowers at the end of February, I'm slightly worried they will have died with the cold temperatures. I have got a couple of daffodils on our kitchen table at the moment. Did you know that daffodils can actually survive the frost? Hopefully in a couple of weeks there will be a flurry of yellow in gardens around the city. 

I mentioned a few weeks ago that me and Le French are both going through some changes at work, he's actually starting a new job tomorrow and for the past week and a half I have been working from the office. An entirely new experience for me. It's only temporary, but it is causing me all sorts of outfit conundrums. I just don't have enough office appropriate dresses. To fix that problem I did a quick trip to Primark last Thursday and bought a couple of dresses that were on sale. 

This one was £10 and I'm absolutely crazy about it. The material is lovely and thick and it has the most lovely royal blue lining. I probably won't be able to wear it for too much longer this year, but I'm sure I will still love it this Autumn. I switched my coat for a black cardigan and snow boots for some black pumps when I got in there, but I definitely felt very grown-up (isn't it ridiculous for a 25 year old to say that - but, as I said, office work is kind of new to me). Anyway, I'm off to curl up with my lovely man and watch a film. We're planning on getting an early night so we are both fresh and sparkly tomorrow morning. Hope you are all well!

  1. I'm definitely going to have to take a trip to Primark...that dress is gorgeous. I find the stock in Primark can vary so much from one store to another - with one turning up some gems and the other a little barren. I've just started a new job this week and my general pattern is to start semi formal and then gradually wind it down to my usual more casual style and hope I get away with it :)

  2. Hey I love your coat! Primark is ace sometimes :) xoxo
