Winter coat, you are defunct. I can no longer recognise you. I will skip around in my nautical mac, even if there is a thick layer of frost on the ground, I can see my breath and my fingers (and knees) are numb before I’m halfway to school. (It wasn't so bad yesterday, but Thursday morning was minus-something!)
Cute, innit? Good old Primark!
Speaking of summery jackets, I would like some suggestions of how to wear this birdies blazer from H&M:
I've been wearing it like this, with jeans and a tight, white t-shirt sticking out. (Also pictured: beer stain on my tummy after some frau bumped into me and caused drink-spillage - this photo was taken after I got home last night!) But how else to wear it, viewers? I can see it as a cardi-alternative in the summer, open, over a sundress, but it's not going to get warm enough in Newcastle for that any time soon, even if I DO wear summer coats and flowers in my hair and blithely ignore the frost. All suggestions welcome. 'Elp!
Also, very impressed with the staying power of the Clinique lipstick I got free with Glamour magazine this month - it lasts for hours! Shame I don't actually like the colour.
Overheard at school
SMALL GIRL: [brandishing a wicker basket she found somewhere] Oh Grandma, what big teef you have! Oh no, it's a wolf! Where is the woodcutter?!
MISS HAMER: Are you being Little Red Riding Hood?
SMALL GIRL: Miss Hamer, shush. You sit there on that table and don't make any noise while I'm acting.
I don't remember her being this... theatrical before I started working with her...!
