First off, the basics: essentially a jumper and jeans. Admittedly this is a spectacular 'cold shoulder' jumper from last winter that I rediscovered in a quest through my wardrobe for ANYTHING WITH SLEEVES to wear to work in a permanently arctic office. Obvious point to mention: having large holes, intentional or otherwise, in one's clothes does not aid warmth.
|Already feeling cool. And chilly.|
|Cold shoulders, yep. And inevitable windswept hair.|
Now let's look at my new boots. These are so awesome and surprisingly comfortable. I agonised for ages as to whether I should get them in black or brown and briefly dallied with the idea of getting both as they're ONLY £35 (!!) from Runway Shoes. Thankfully for my bank account, common sense kicked in just before I clicked past the button of no return and I got only the brown pair. I take solace knowing the black pair still await me.
It was a cold day both inside and outside the office so I took the opportunity to dig out two other items from years past, each of which instantly up the cool factor: my goes-with-everything beloved furry coat and MOST FABULOUS cloche hat. I'm obsessed with cloches, they really ring my bell! *Hangs head in shame at terrible pun*.
|Too specsy for this coat|
So there we have it. I feel like I could viably hang with the cool kids in Dalston and not look out of place! Do I want to do that? Not especially...
P.S. I also have to mention my nails: a glorious ultra-dark black cherry hue from Nails Inc. A happy coincidence that coordinated particularly well with this get-up.

OK, I realise that 14 photos is a little over the top for one blog post, but considering I don't plan on ever leaving my desk whilst wearing my glasses, I thought I should share as many pictures of them as possible as a one-time-only opportunity for you to have a butchers. They may never feature again!
P.S. Again. I've been playing around with the design and layout of my blog recently and have added some new features. See that Google Friend Connect button towards the top on the right... just give it a little click... go on, it won't hurt.
