Seriously Cold Winter's Day Garb

Winter dressing
Brown riding boots

Red hair & ear muffs
You may or may not have seen that I mentioned in this post that some days sometimes it's just too cold for anything other than making like a yeti on a day trip to the South Pole: this was one of those days. I'm one of those people in the winter who'll wear woolly tights under jeans, three pairs of thick socks and about four tops under a thick sweater... and still be cold. In fact over the weekend I counted how many pairs of gloves I had in my bag: Four and a half. Gloves for all occasions.

This parka hasn't made an appearance on the blog before, but I've had it for three winters now and it's the warmest, cosiest coat I own and I wear it A LOT. I guess I've never thought it blog-worthy before, but why not show it at least once? This may not be the most colourful outfit I've photographed before, nor the most flattering for my figure... but at least I was warm. And it's been really cold in Blighty the past couple of weeks or so.

Has everyone got nice weekend plans...? Enjoy it, whatever you may be doing: I'm having a long weekend in London (I've scheduled posts for that time) - can't wait!

  4. Brrrr, too cold for this socal gal! Love your ear muffs though :-)


  5. Is it wrong that I think parkas are fashionable? I think they have really come a long way and have made some really flattering ones for women. With that said, I love yours! The color is neutral and I bet it would look cute with lots of other things. And I love your GIF. That is so cute! Have a great long weekend! <3


  6. Your GIFS are soooo cute!!!
    Groovy winter-wear.


  7. Well I love your parka and I love this look, perfect for staying chic in the freezing cold! I sooo love your furry trimmed gloves! :)

    Take care and enjoy your weekend,

  11. Why not show off that beautiful coat? It's really lovely and I love the gif! Yes, you've convinced me it's very, very cold, but you look oh so toasty:). Have a fantastic time in London and drive safely OK? xoxo

  12. Love your lovely coat and boots. Love that color.

  13. This was exactly my complaint today when it was snowing. How can I be stylish when I have to wear very unflattering things like stupid boots that can withstand slush? You do manage however to still look nice. Well done. Have a wonderful time in London.

  14. You look great in the parka! Denmark is even colder than England, so I'm considering getting a fur coat!

  15. you look so warm and cozy and i seriously love the mittens even though i know they are a huge pain LOL

    And just as pretty.

  32. Love those mittens and ear muffs. You look so gorgeous and cosy. You know you are gorgeous in everything though right? Love the polka dots too
