The snow where we live has been a bit pathetic really. After a mad looking Friday night blizzard, we got our hopes up but Saturday dawned bright and it’s been thawing since. But we got to bum sledge down the hills in the park before the thaw set in and you’ve guessed what I wore…good old Merrell & wellies!
As you’d expect, it’s all about the layers. I’ve got a full thermal base layer under my Still knitted cowl neck dress (last seen here) and Gok for TU at Sainsburys perfect skinnies in navy. Karrimor wellies, wellie socks from TK Maxx and my M&S sale bargain scarf (seen here) finish the outfit. Glad I got these photos before the sliding began as I was covered in snow and muck by the end of it. Turns out the 8 year old has a deadly aim!
We got a late call babysitting offer so decided to go to see Les Miserables in the cinema. Mr SGS had already seen it with his sister & mum as I wasn’t keen but he enjoyed it so much, he wanted to watch it again and talked me into going.
The snow was totally gone by then and it wasn’t actually that cold so I gave my River Island boucle biker (from my sales haul – link here) a first wear. Photos are sepia as no matter what setting I tried, the jacket looked black and my (black) jumper looked bright blue – weird!

will do a separate post on these – a fab Christmas present from husband!
Of course, I did wear a big warm black scarf, hat and gloves for extra warmth factor. And my verdict on the movie – amazing. I thought the singing throughout would be weird but it was perfect and epic and sad and wonderful. What amazing actors! If you’re wavering as I was, I urge you to give it a try.
Hope you had a great weekend…I’ve some shopping confessions to make on the blog this week. It appears giving up shopping AND wine for all of January was too much. And shopping is better for you than wine, isn’t it?! I’ll fill you in when it arrives…
