Is it too arrogant to tell you that I'm really enjoying my outfit today? Because, well, I am. I feel I've been a bit uninspired on the outfit front of late which is pretty unfortunate given that I'm in the early days of blogging. I'm not promising to throw on something Vogue-worthy every day (or ever, in fact) but I can assure you that the unaccessorised jeans and jumper days are over. Hallelujah.
I feel like I'm channeling a bit of a 70s school teacher look today. You know, the one who's just settled down after their heady Woodstock youth. I think it's the beads, the exposed cuffs, the printed corduroy. Whatever it is though, I'm certainly not complaining. I've also just realised that as I type this, I'm listening to Bread very loudly which fits the whole vibe very well indeed.
I bought these shorts in River Island last September so they're in their second winter now and I still love them. You can't quite see here, but they're quite flared which I really like. It counteracts the pretty short length somewhat making them more daytime appropriate. (It also means that there's plenty of room underneath for the two pairs of tights I'm wearing but shh, let's keep that between you and me.) I added my current go-to blouse and a warm cardigan because I thought I should at least pretend to acknowledge today's -14º thermometer reading. I quite liked today's colour combination too because, to me, it feels suitably seasonal without being overly dark.
It's Friday which marks the beginning of the penultimate weekend of the semester. This is quite sad because I'm the only one out of my friends in Sweden who's staying the entire academic year so I have a few goodbyes to come in the next week or so. We're beginning the farewell celebrations this evening with a Christmas gathering for one of my classes which should be nice. I plan to cook up some mince pies to inject a little British festivity into the occasion.
Have a lovely weekend,
