For: More snow. Yes, I wore open toes in the snow. So sue me.
Zara’s January sale was the only one I was really bothered about. I adore Zara clothing – the designs are a perfect mix of Urban Outfitters cool and Gap casual. My wardrobe is steadily becoming a shrine to their sweet tea dresses and chunky knit cardigans.
When I nipped in I had the Mr in tow, so was very single minded. I picked up a black leather belt, the spotty dress seen here (the cardigan is also Zara, but sadly belongs to my sister) and made my way to the till, looking dead ahead and ignoring the rails either side of me. The queue was long and winding so as I waited patiently I allowed my eyes to roam, just a little, to the table of shoes next to me. And there they were, sitting in all their leather glory, my size, and only £14.99. A sign, I think you’ll agree? I snatched them up straightaway.
Mornings have been grim up north since work started again. Exceptionally dark, wet and dreary, they don’t allow for outdoor photography so I’ve resorted to my living room and some fairy lights. Hurry up spring!
