For those of you who don’t live in West Yorkshire, let me tell you – we’ve had rather a lot of snow up here the past couple of days!
Where we live is sooooo beautiful and it looks amazing in the snow…however, it isn’t very practical or pleasant when you’re trying to get out and about to do things!!
Today’s diary was jam-packed but unfortunately my studio (which is 700ft up and currently resembles a large ice cube/igloo) is snowed in! So admin/catch-up day for me, which includes writing some posts for the blog which has been a little neglected of late.
Often during Winter months I feel like all I see is grey skies, grey clothes, grey everything – there just doesn’t seem to be much colour around at this time of year. Over the past few years though I’ve consistently worn colour whatever the time of year or weather situation, it makes me feel (and look) so much better and definitely lifts my mood.
This beautiful Samsoe & Samsoe jumper has been on heavy rotation recently – it’s warm and cosy but also such a gorgeous bright colour that you’d normally expect to see worn during warmer months. I’ve been layering it over long-sleeved vests, my denim shirt and under heavy knits too.
The Winter sales are still going and before they finish to make way for the new Spring/Summer collections I have a little ‘style challenge’ for you all. Go along and hunt out a piece of knitwear in a bright, bold, fun colour that you don’t already have in your wardrobe. Whether it’s a jumper, scarf, hat or just some accessories, injecting a little colour into your wardrobe will brighten even the darkest of Winter days! Make sure you report back and share pictures on my Facebook page of your bright and beautiful Winter ensembles!
