Windy Weather

Just a quick outfit post for you today!

I wanted to start incorporating some of my cotton summer dresses into my outfits after a long and boring winter, but I picked a particularly bad day to do it. I don't really have enough slips or vests and today was cold, windy and, when we started taking these photos, drizzly to boot. I was cold. Still, I have been getting good use out of my trusty scarf/hood, and today was no exception. It's excellent fringe protection in windy weather!

However, I haven't given my recent haircut enough blog coverage yet so here I am without it too. Instead of going for the full Bettie bang effect, I have taken to combing it slightly to the side, Audrey Hepburn style. I promise it is meant to look like that, I'm not just pretending because the wind ruined it. ;)

In between every photo, the wind whipped my scarf over to the front.

I'm showing off my slip in all of these. 

Jacket : Heyday
Dress: vintage Swirl
Boots: old, horrible and ready for the bin
Bag: The Leather Satchel Co - full blog review very soon! 

We only spent about 3 minutes taking these pictures but just as we finished an ice-cream van drove past... it was way too cold for ice-cream but here's a little outtake showing my reaction. Haha! 

Cannot WAIT until the day I can stop wearing tights (and eat ice-cream outside without hypothermia)!

  1. love your "ice cream face" :D
    despite the nasty weather you look lovely!

  2. Love your reaction!! :) Still managing to look classy despite the horrific weather (you're making the rest of us look bad!)

  3. the perfect outfit for windy weather :)

  4. I'm so in love with your blog right now! x

  5. you always look lovely Fleur, i really like your fringe too. Yup roll on Spring proper i say!!! :-) x

  6. After studying these pics I know why I love your fringe this time: your hair is darker! Did you color it more black? It looks awsome!! xxx

    1. I have! Only semi-permanent, but I think I'll keep it up for a while :)

  7. Here, here I quite agree. In the Mid-West its still very snowy and cold out,I have been sporting fleeced lined leggings to ware under my skirts and dresses. Oh my! what a huge difference fleeced lined leggings make, every out fit is now ten times more warmer then with tights. Which has made the cold wintery weather much more enjoyable.

    1. I need to get me some of those!

    2. I found my pair at my local Walgreens not sure there are any Walgreen stores on your side of the pond. Here is a review someone worte about the leggings I've come to adore

      I also pair them half slips and cotton rib knit short pants over my leggings never under.
      and vests for extra layers. I noticed when paired together like this it looks just like a vintage union suit.I am so warm without looking like I am waring a lot of clothing, too. Which allows me to ware all the skirts and dress I like. For socks I also like to ware knee highs in plain colors, fun prints, and strips are my favorite. My most worn knee highs I got are from the web site sock dreams and they say COOKIES on the sides :)

  8. What a wonderfully lovely Swirl dress! One tends to picture them in their minds (or at least I do) in shades of blue, pink, yellow, purple, green and white in particular. It's a pleasant change of pace to see one rocking red and black like this.

  9. Loving your jacket and the print of the dress <3!
    You look great!
