I really didn't think that I would be posting today, I was up against the elements, a hastily packed and ill thought out suitcase and a power cut.
This weekend we went to Tyne and Wear and given the weather we weren't going to take any pictures but when we drove into Alnwick and stopped at The Tree House it was just too pretty not to. We arrived just as it started to snow and everywhere looked just like Narnia. Huge icicles were hanging from the tree house's eaves, the tree branches were bowing under the weight of all the snow and the snow was so deep in places that it nearly flooded my boots. It was a world away from the last time we visited.
With Narnia in mind, I started to seriously crave Turkish Delight but had to make do with my rose lip salve.
You must forgive me the major faux pas of posting about the same dress twice but I really can't stop wearing it. I've taken to wearing it with this sweater . I love the key detail and how the colours perfectly match the plaid. I wore them with my TBA coat and leather riding boots. I'm not really fond of wearing boots but in conditions such as this, I wasn't left with much choice. It is always a challenge to say warm and look nice, especially when you refuse to wear trousers. I'm still searching for the perfect thick winter tights... any suggestions?
The snow was so hard packed and icy in places that walking was pretty precarious. Thankfully I didn't actually fall but Ad managed to shoot this one as I was slipping and sliding all over the place.
I owe a huge thank you to him for shooting in the freezing cold! You can see some more photographs from today on his flickr
I also want to say thank you for your lovely comments and feedback last week about my dress. The response was so positive that I've decided to go ahead and start selling some pieces. Hopefully I'll have more to show you very soon.
What have you been wearing to keep warm in the snow?
