clovember 10-23 -"Winter Is Coming"

smiley
This latest installment of Clovember is brought to you by the fact that for once everyone has gone to bed and fallen asleep without

a) arguing with me
b) petitioning for water/cuddles/philosophical debate/one more cartoon
c) my day and subsequent functioning was much improved by a long afternoon nap

Now for

clovember 10

My long-suffering beloved winter skirt, that manages to be both light and warm. Still holding on despite the Great Moth Apocalypse of 2013. The belt was my first ever present from Z.

clovember 11

Dress is Phase Eight via ebay (I have managed to score a number of them for under £10), and awesome fabric belt from some random shop many years ago.

clovember 12

Multiple layered summer t-shirts + yellow cord trousers = pretending it is not in fact November.

clovember 13

Work Clos, followed by bonus shot of Matei and I on our monthly date-night. I finished work early enough to pick him up from school and we went for dinner and a movie (I endured Turbo by sleeping through about a 1/3 of it). I am pleased to say that Matei is an excellent date, but I look forward to the time when he starts paying for dinner.

clovember 14

The picture does not do justice to the awesomeness of this Per Una skirt which looks immaculate despite being 11 years old. Its bottom half contains black tulle and flounces- as though a demure garment ran into a flamenco dancer's outfit.

clovember 15

This dress is from some random internet catalogue thing (isme? freemans? something that no longer exists?) and remains one of the most flattering and comfortable things I have ever purchased.

clovember 16

Shades of blue

clovember 17

There is a little shop on Flask walk (tiny street off Rosslyn HIll in Hampstead) that sells awesome things for relatively few £. I bought this necklace for £12 and saw the same one in John Lewis for £60. Curvy jeans from GAP, jumper from H&M.

clovember 18

Teal tights and shoes, grey everything else and bonus cat cameo.

clovember 19

Miss Selfridge t-shirt, Gap cardy, wideleg Wallis jeans.

clovember 20

I am wearing awesome fleece tights, which are doing a wonderful job of keeping blood flow in my extremeties.

clovember 21

I am totally pro long cardigans.

clovember 22

It was very gratifying to find my love of pencil dresses and stripes united in one garment.

clovember 23

Bead necklaces for <£5 are the latest thing I am grateful to ebay for.

Thank you :)

My relationship to clothes and my body has changed a lot in the last ten years - it has been lovely to buy and wear things that give me pleasure.

You have lovely clothes!

I have the same skirt as your work skirt (date night) - my aunt bought it for me in a sale. I am very grateful that she did!

It's an ace skirt! Monsoon sales always test my resolution to Not Buy Any More Clothes.

Thank you. :)

Now that my children have graduated from inveterate necklace-pullers/jewellery destroyers to decent human beings it has been really nice to start wearing accessories again. :)
