Winter Dream Or Winter Scream?

As you can see there is still some determined snow clinging to the rocks and sand down by the ocean. With strong wind and grey skies sometimes it seems as if winter holds us in a vice-like grip and will never abate...I'm being dramatic, but I'm a warm weather person. It's far too early to be contemplating, but I'm already eagerly envisioning summer nights spent lying in the parade field looking at the stars. Instead, for now I'm watching the snow slowly melt and bundling myself up.

Outfit details:
H&M hat
vintage shoes
Clinque red red red lipstick



  1. Ankle socks with tights are so essential in the winter, for me. Or, in my case, knee high or thigh high socks with tights. Even under pants.

    I love the red lipstick, it lights your face ablaze.

  4. Lovely. Thaoutfit looks so nice and warm, especially the gloves. And what a great place for the photos! x

  5. Im looking forward to summer too! althou i prefer my winter wardrobe :) xo

  6. I have been pairing knitted tights with thick socks during the winter too. Even that can be warmer than wearing pants!

  7. ohh I love your yellow hat. I love bright winter accessories. They really pop on grey days.

    I also love that you're by the ocean in these photos. You're very brave!

  10. Oo, your gloves are really nice. ^.^
    I must get myself a pair of those, they look all snuggly. hehe :)


  11. Aaah, this is a major classic! That dress fits perfectly, and I love that everything is balanced out with different colours... yellow hat, brown shoes, grey gloves. Perfect and simple.

    And I must agree with the person who says ankle socks are a necessity at this time of year. I'm pleased that socks are somehow "cool" again so it can look deliberate. ; )
