A Cosy Snow Day Outfit
Out of nowhere, it snowed the past weekend. I thought Spring had finally come as it was warming up, hitting temperatures of 12 and Storm Emma was long gone, but then everything took a turn for the worst, became sub zero and coated us all in heavy snow for the weekend. No sooner had it came, it left, melting pretty quickly and leaving no trace of it behind. I think this last year is the most I have spoken about the weather in all my blogging years, and coming from someone who is British, that’s a pretty big deal since it’s all we usually discuss. Total madness! Luckily this time, Adam was here, so we managed to get a couple of photo shoots done in the snow!
For this look, it was a spur of the moment outfit as I wasn’t prepared for anything, but I quite like how cosy it turned out to be. I opted for my Zara Aviator Coat (which you’ve seen 4 times now!) and layered it with my James Jeans Black Skinny Jeans, which I then tucked into my Ted & Muffy Blade Over The Knee Boots (seen here). I finished it off with a Topshop Grey Scarf and an Urban Outfitters Beanie, topped off with a red lip. I will say that the hat and scarf are new here, but I purchased them for a steal in the sale! The scarf was £6.50 and the hat was £5, so that’s a bargain! Everything else is re-worn and I’m still enjoying styling the items I have in my wardrobe.
Even though it’s really cold and bitter, there’s something about the snow that’s so peaceful and magical. Everything usually goes really quiet, there’s no cars on the road… it’s just very relaxing. Of course when snow covers everything it lands on, it ends up looking beautiful too, anything that was dirty or tatty to begin with is now covered with crystals so it just shines. There’s one thing I like doing though and that’s looking out the window at night because even though it’s pitch black, it’s bright and you can see everywhere, even out to the horizon because the snow lights it up. It’s a really special thing, and I love it for short periods of time, so I’m glad it cleared up quickly. Anyway, what do you think of the outfit and the snow photo shoot? These might be some of my favourite photos of 2018 so far! Lorna xx.
