Cold and Wet

It has now been raining, constantly, in London for about 3 weeks straight. Seriously, it has not stopped, which means I have my boots out and am snuggling up in some warm knits. It also means that my hair doesn't look good for more than 10 minutes a day.

I wore this on a local errand run (it was raining so hard, that it literally was a run) and I wish I'd opted for jeans. 
I love the boots though. I bought them years and years ago, and have only worn them a handful of times. They look more worn than they are as I wore them to see Kings of Leon in Hyde Park last summer. I'm pretty excited about festival/outdoor music season coming round again. Although I won't be doing any of the major ones again, I'll definitely be out and about at the London ones (Lovebox and Hard Rock Calling for sure!)

(Clearly enjoying the rain a bit too much! Also, please ignore the whole in the tights.)

I don't know if you can see my lipstick colour, but it's a new favourite of mine. It's a coral shade from Volcom, which I picked up at a press day (sadly, they don't actually do make up - it was a one off). I never thought coral lips would suit me, but I really love the look of them. And it's less intense than red, so more wearable on a day to day basis.
Oh, and say Hi to yet another, gorgeous, new watch. This time it's from Guess, and I love the blue colour. I'm becoming more and more proud of my watch collection. Hopefully it'll soon be able to rival my shoe collection!

How do you protect yourself from the rain?

I love this dress! I try to wear brighter colours on rainy days to cheer things up but the weather at the moment is so terrible that I'm still wearing my winter clothes to work...at least I haven't spent too much on new summer clothes yet! x

Good ol' British weather! I'm actually craving some wet days right now - India is like a SAUNA. So hot I don't even want to step outside!

That dress is SO cute, and fits like it was made for you! It will be even better when the weather warms up! Love the lipstick shade and the funky watch, too :)
