Three AW10 trends: Parka, Over-the-knee, knitted socks, Aviator-style, Shearling boots.

The Parka is Topshop, but thrifted for €5 (yeah, true!); the socks are really warm and for once, don’t dig in to my legs and give that charming, thigh-muffin-top look.  I wanted to keep the dress simple with all the different elements of the  outfit. The chunky gold chain was also thrifted and adds a bit of bling to an otherwise pretty grungy outfit.

The clocks go forward tomorrow; wait… (spring forward / fall back… yeah, right, cool). So 8 o’clock tomorrow will still be light outside. It’s a great time of year and today the weather was celebrating; it was sunny, warmer than 10 degrees and I’m afraid I got a little carried away with the sunshine. Pulling on the sunniest, brightest skirt I have, with a sheer thrifted blouse and bare legs (aargh) I went for a bit of a walk. And squinted quite a lot while I was at it; which reminds me, must dig out my shades.
