When It’s Too Windy To Leave The House

So, you know how a lot of bloggers stand outside people’s houses to take their outfit photos? Well, today it’s so windy I’m taking my photos outside my own house. Not because my tiles are clean (their not!) nor because I’ve swept the leaves (I’ve not!), but because it’s so damned windy, I’m not going anywhere! Although as luck would have it, the blue of the door perfectly matches the blue in my dress. So let’s pretend it’s all perfectly planned shall we? BTW, one day I will invite you all in, it’s just a bit of a building site right now as the kitchen is being fitted. That’s right my friends, I’m getting a flippin’ kitchen! For the first time in two years, I’m gonna be able to buy milk and put it in a fridge!

That Dress Though

I think this might be one of my favourite dresses Boden have EVER made! I freakin’ love it; The mix of pink and red, the flowing skirt, the long sheer sleeves, the empire waist… it’s just all good! Seriously, Boden are KILLING it right now, if you don’t stalk their website on a daily basis like I do, I’m not sure we can even be friends! Actually, that’s not true, we’ll always be buddies, but seriously, I LOVE this dress! PS. It’s currently on sale if you wanna match with me, they also offer free shipping and returns so if you don’t love it, you can send it back. No biggie! Oh and I highly suggest you order the Boden ‘Lana’ Boots whilst you are there, they are so comfortable and I’ve worn mine loads already this winter! Aren’t they beautiful?!

    I can’t wait to see your kitchen when it’s done! And if I had a gorgeous porch like that to hang out on you better believe I would take tonnes of snaps!

    Here in West Virginia (USA) we have had < 10F temps and 20 mph winds for 2 days. Best fashion statement is a cap that covers one's ears! On the other hand, we have home made turkety soup on the range. Enjoy your kitchen. -Oscar
