Meanwhile, as the gales blew and the rain chucked it down, I took out a couple of summer purchases that I have been gazing at and wondering if I'll ever get to wear.
So I sashayed around my bedroom in my summer outfit and dreamt of sunny days..
Tried a couple of different necklaces with this top to see which one worked best. On the left, it's my Primark bargain (£4-in stores right now - thanks to Lucy @ Suburban Style!), which I like because it's a bit edgier than the one on the right (a Christmas present from my 8 year old). I love how a necklace finishes off an outfit. Which do you prefer?
Off now to prepare for my Clothes Swap/Swishing Party tonight. I've got 14 friends coming with the clothes and accessories they no longer wear and I'm hoping we all find something lovely to swap them for. I'll share how the night went on tomorrow's blog!
In the meantime, don't forget to enter my competition to win some gorgeous Leighton Denny nail products - remember, a home manicure is a great way to spend a rainy night in!
