ice cream protection

Winter would not be winter, unless you had those days where as your alarm goes off in the morning, you pretend that you are simply dreaming and pull the covers over your head, as you just do not want to go outside and freeze to your bones. 

The positive to come out of this is that you get to purchase all kinds of headgear to keep you warm, as I need not remind you that you lose a third (don't quote me) of your body heat through your head. Does that mean, theoretically, if you wore trousers and no hat or a hat and no trousers, you would feel the same amount of coldness? No idea, answers on a postcard please.

I always find that nothing quite goes with a hat, as do boots. The ones featured here are a great pair I picked up from Zara. Now I know that boots are supposed to be oversized and chunky, but I also enjoy the more sophisticated and sleek looking cousin as well. Also, as I was quite rightly told, with boots, always roll the trousers up to finish off the look; I have to say I am a fan of this. The only problem is though, you suddenly get a cold draft between the boot and the trouser. The remedy - add some colourful (thick, football) socks to bring some life to the season (and body to the look).

Welcome, as many of you may have already been introduced, to the MCPEM ("most comfortable pants (trousers) ever made") aka dropped crotch. These pants can do it all, wear them down and feel super comfortable as though you're walking around in your duvet. Equally, dress them up and feel that you are making an effort without making an effort; the only way to do it.

If I could, I would have a pair in every colour (which by the way I am trying to desperately do as you read). However, I have been flagged as a sufferer of obsessive compulsive disorder, but as the pills are having no effect whatsoever, I think I will simply succumb to my needs, or is that wants?

garden green

So, as it is coming up to (if not already) winter, either I use profuse amounts of lawn feed or these pictures have been sat on my memory card for a while. As you may have guessed, it is indeed the latter. 

If I recall correctly, I think I took these pictures one Sunday where I felt as though I hadn't exploited the contents of my wardrobe enough that past week, and so I grabbed my shoes and camera and I was off.

These are most probably, definitely, maybe, for sure my extra most favourite shoes. I am seriously addicted, the only problem is that they are slightly too wide for my feet and so have a tendency to fall off. Oh well, nothing like a challenge.
