..so it’s what I wore
Geometric print tunic – Boden, black leggings – Topshop, classic short chestnut boots – Ugg, watch – Michael Kors
This is one of my favourite I’m-not-leaving-the-house outfits! The snow is still quite bad here so I’m (happily) housebound this week. We had some snow over the weekend but not that much then on Sunday night, it really came down and it doesn’t look to be leaving any time soon! Mr Mostly is working from home so he is taking care of the school run for me which is absolute BLISS! I am happy to ooh and ahh over the prettiness of the snow from behind my double glazed windows in my central heated house thankyouverymuch!
This Boden tunic isn’t new, in fact I can’t remember if I bought it last year or the year before. I love this print, so much so that I actually have a coat in the same pattern but a different colour. It is definitely tunic and not dress length though so I feel much ‘safer’ pairing it with leggings rather than tights. And of course leggings are much warmer too.
This is about as scruffy as I get. Love them or hate them (and I know most of you fall into the latter category) but I’m sorry, Ugg boots are the comfiest things EVER. I defy anyone to try them on and not love them. Mine don’t leave the house, strictly worn indoors as slippers I promise. I’m normally a bare foot girl but when it’s -7 outside like it is today, even I can’t resist the lure of toasty toes. And they really are very very toasty.
I must admit that I’m never going to be that girl who slobs around the house in holey joggy bottoms and a big old baggy sweatshirt, not that there is anything wrong with that of course but it’s just not me. Even if I’m not leaving the house, I will still straighten my hair and slap on a bit of make-up. I think when you are at home, it’s even more important to make a bit of an effort because it’s too easy not to. Finding those ten, maybe fifteen minutes every morning to make that small effort can do wonders for my self-esteem and I’m ready to face the day looking at least half human, even if nobody but the cat is around to admire my efforts. There is no question that it makes me feel more confident. You probably think I’m mad and terribly shallow (and I probably am) but that’s just me!
