Today was working in the am and had a meeting with SLT in a school.

I wore,
claret textured tights, Plumo
Black jersey basics dress- H&M I rather live in these
Worn under, cashmere vest- Brora
Navy slouchy blazer- Zara
Black suede boots- Clarks originals
Huge Cashmere scarf wrapped around my neck.

Hair is in a bun, and I have a longish Claudia Winkleman style fringe, and today I have muted orange/peach nail polish on from Top Shop.

I felt quite nice, and I like the cold. What have you got on?

i'm feel fat and out of shape at the moment, been eating too much and not exercising due to stress.
Wearing a blue/green/black checked shirt underneath a Navy sweatshirt with a fox on it, skinny jeans and burgundy DMs. I would like to say i look androgynous geek chic with a hint of grunge but i think i just look like shit really.

Thanks, Nilby. Will check them out - I need something that isn't black in my wardrobe!

At work I was wearing:

Pale pink angora-mix jumper, Gok at Sainsburys
Wide leg trousers, Laura Ashley
Shoe boots, Clarks

The jumper is a gorgeous shape, but has little diamantes around each cuff, and loads of them fell off. It's the first time I'd worn the jumper. angry Good thing I'm handy with a needle and thread.

It's not that cold today.....this is just the beginning. I haven't had my gloves on yet.

Sorry, I went a bit crazy with the exclamations there.

remus the quality is ok! the jersey is quite thick! thicker than a t-shirt and had a lot of give in it. I size up so it's not too body con and with a jacket/blazer it looks great! I'm 5'3 and sits just above the knee.

Black Banana Republic trousers
Bright orange uniqlo merino v neck with muji cami
nine west shoe boots (with a much higher heel than I usually wear!)
Lovely red wool coat from jigsaw

despite the howling gales on the north east coast I have been snug as a bug

Thank you. Tbh I spent most of the day with my heels kicked under the desk and my hair all over the place.

I like your H&M dress - what's the quality/length like?

totally get you with your pic links!

carol yes the boots are wearing well, and are so so comfortable.

I really really want a cashmere cardigan, just not found the right shape yet.

Carolmillen Thu 10-Oct-13 18:39:17

Nilbyname, do your Clarks boots still look nice after a few wears? I'm always a bit dubious about keeping suede looking nice - although I love the style of the boot!

grey longline cashmere cardigan, grey skinny cords, black ankle boots and white sequin top

I love how everyone is all wrapped up, feels like autumn really kicked into today, need to find my mittens next.

I really like the sound of the ash trainers who wore them up thread ^^

Also, I NEED an ALLSAINTS leather jacket, father christmas if you are listening!

I must add that my daughter is wearing these

www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004ETL1XS/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

They arrived this morning before she went to schools and they are fabulous! I am thirty five years too old for them and they are not in keeping with my style but they look fantastic! The underneath of them has white bones!

My daughter looks like Boy George when he first appeared on Top of the Pops, multi coloured dreads, beads in her hair and bright blue patterned teeny tiny shorts worn over black tights, a rolling stone t shirt and one of my old coats, a kind of Navajo Indian affair! She looks fab!

Hot, sunny day in Swansea!

I am wearing black boots, black leggings, a long sleeve black t shirt, a denim dress as worn by Katherine jenkins and bought from h&m for around £6!, a yellow floral scarf which was sold as a hijab but I wear it as a large scarf. Took my coat off it was so warm and took my daughter to Sainsburys as she finished school early, and it was very warm indeed!
