Brrr brrr brrr

It's absolutely freezing! According to the weather forecast it's 11 celsius today (51F) but it feels a couple of degrees above freezing in the shade. There was frost on the ground yesterday afternoon.. truly, it is Winter! In Dublin the Christmas lights have gone up on the main shopping streets in the past week, which is pretty exciting.
Penneys cardigan // Vero Moda shorts // Topshop tights

Apart from Christmas, the best part about Winter is obviously the opportunity to wear cosy knits and wool tights. I bought this Penneys* cardie last December for a trip to Berlin and it's fairly warm (although it couldn't withstand the -20 degree temperatures in Berlin - I've never been so cold in my life). When you can get proper wool knitwear in Penneys it's surprisingly good quality though.

*Penneys = Primark in the UK!
Accesorize ring // Tatty Devine brooch

And then I had to go back inside for some hot chocolate...!

Is it starting to get chilly where you are? If you're in the UK, are you looking forward to another "big snow".. or dreading it?

Your cardigan is super cute & admiring your Tatty Devine brooch!

I am very excited for the cold (ask me in a few weeks & I will probably have had enough!) xx

Oooh I love this outfit...it's really cute and cosy looking! I'm dreading the snow...we had enough of it the last two Irish winters to do us a lifetime and now I'm facing into a winter in Aberdeen....brrrrr!!

Gorgeous cardigan and tights, I really love all your outfits! And I'd totally wear it too, the broach and the ring are super cute accessories. And even though I don't live in England... I'm kind of looking forward to the cold but on the other hand not so much. I'm not sure, once it's cold it usually stays cold for a LONG time and I'm not looking forward to that.

Oh, you look very cute. I love your tights. In Poland -20 degree temperature is very normal in winter. I can't wait for snow!

Cute outfit, love the tights! Nah, it's not chilly here yet. It's been in the 70's still some days and you can't even wear a cardigan.

This is a really cute outfit - I love the cardy and the tights. I think I like winter fashion better than summer, but that said, I really don't like being cold! I love your brooch!

Such a nice outfit! Love the purples and pinks in it - and those tights are very nice, perfect for jazzing up the colder days! I really need some stripy tights!
And it's definitely getting colder in the west midlands - but I love layering up, so I'm looking forward to the snow! x
