I got dressed this morning as follows:

Topshop navy silk shorts

Fine-knit Primark cherry crewneck cardigan, buttoned up &tucked into shorts

Black wide belt with gold detail

Black opaques

Black patent brogues

Zara leopard-print scarf

But now the house is FREEZING and instead of turning on the heating I am taking shelter under an emerald wool jumper from Carraig Donn

I look ridiculous, the jumper smells like the sheep it came from, but I am so warm!

First day back at work after maternity leave. The weather is a bad omen, I feel... sad

My nicely thought through and easy to manage outfit of lovely black Mango jersey dress, bright red cardi and electric blue ballet pumps was rather ruined this morning by the need the wear the hideous and only previously seen when walking the screaming baby in a downpour green Trespass rain coat.
