Blue Velvet

Top: Charity shop, Skirt: Topshop, Belt: Carboot, Necklace: H&M, Boots Carvela Kurt Geiger c/o Harrods, Tights: Topshop.

I think its officially autumn now, which means its officially time to start complaining about all the first world winter problems that British people encounter on a daily basis.

1: wishing you had bought a coat with a hood because you now look like a drowned rat.

2: The crotch part of your tights riding down to your knees forcing you to walk like a robot.

3: chapped lips, cold hands, numb toes.

4: fuzzy socks not being considered stylish.

5: Thinking its cold in the morning, so you wrap up in every woollen item you own only to overheat at about 3pm.

6: Having your cup of tea go cold within 5 minutes.

7: wishing it would get colder because you cant decide whether or not to crack out the humongous fur coat ala 'Thrift Shop'

8:Being on your second cold of the winter despite it only just being autumn.

9:Cherishing the two hours between hay fever ending and a cold beginning. 

10:Seeing the return of big coats and baggy jumpers as a green light to consume up to fifteen jacket potatoes per day.
