First Snow





Saturday morning I awoke to a thin layer of icing sugar on the ground. I promptly set off to the closest photo opportunity and arrived in time before it thawed. Actually I felt frozen myself by the time I reached a suitable spot.





I always love Rebecca's animated GIFs and recently Maria posted a sweet one as well, so when the wind freshened up while my camera was snapping away I was pleased as punch. Well, I would have been even more pleased if I could've felt my toes and my legs hadn't been burning so badly. At this point I had turned into a frost bite hypochondriac anticipating gangrene and leg amputation to follow this shoot :D



A couple of strategically placed hot water bottles, a big mug of coffee and hot cross buns was all the medicine it took to cure my frosty limbs but I think next time I'll try and make my leg wear a tad more temperature appropriate (Monday, when I actually wore this, was A LOT warmer). Brrrr.

  1. Aw, you look so fabulous in your beautiful tangerine outfit! :D I love your earmuffs too, I think, but I can't seem them so well.

    Also, I swear the other day I had the exact same hypochondriac sentiment! Even though my legwear was fairly warm, my thighs were icecold and after an hour long walk I was strangely scared my legs would fall off and I just knew that my thighs had secretly already gone purple beyond repair, haha!

  2. I think only fashion bloggers respond to sub-zero temperatures with "oh good, I'll go stand outside for half an hour!?

  9. I am glad I am not the only one who does the blog freeze :D

    Vicky: Yep, I did :) but the snow still looks sparse in the shots! With that yellow sky out there I am sure I'll get another chance soon :) You're in Cambridge too, right?

  20. ps: how did you make the animated gif?

  21. What a lovely setting you have to work with here! The .gif is wonderful and worth the frost-bite you risked to get it!

    The collar on the blouse is wonderful and the rick-rack on the skirt is a touch I have not seen in so long, although I have been searching for an apron with it.

  26. I'm thinking of you in the cold. My uncle in-law said the handbrake on his car had frozen the other morning bbbrrrr now that is cold.

    Ear muffs are the way to go, they look so warm and cute.

    I meant to mention that I like looking out for your subtle changes in your title images - love your current dress, well suited to drinking tea (or coffee).

    ^U^

  27. You selected a lovely spot to take these photos! So idyllic. I love those little dustings of snow. To me, that's when snow looks the most magical.

    I couldn't make up my mind on that H&M cardi when it was in stores (now I wish I bought it), so I will have to live vicariously through you! It looks great with that skirt.

  30. Stef it's Vicky aka Born too Late. Yes I am in the Cambs too. I am posting this as after I deleted my blog and changed my account it affected some of my comments and I didn't want you to think I was an oddball! I sent you a message on facebook as I want to relaunch my blog after my exams when I have completed my final year at uni :-)
