Hellooo. Hope all goes well with you, my ether friends.
I've been out enjoying our sunny start to Spring. Just a couple of days after our Siberian freeze, I was out on the beach enjoying temps that had moved from -5c to 7c. Who would have thought? But it was still chilly at 7c.
So I wrapped up warmly and headed for the beach.
Look who's got old lady eyes!
This was a good opportunity to show you a success from my Last Chance Salon (See HERE)
I was considering dumping this jumper, then gave it the Last Chance Salon treatment (See HERE).
Well, the good news is that I've worn this jumper at least once every week throughout the whole winter. Turns out it's a go-to for jumper and jeans days (and there are many!), so it's not a dumper jumper after all. Success!
It was a bit blowy on the headland but this infinity scarf kept snuggly in place.
The scarf was thoughtfully knitted for me by a dear friend.
The grey jeans are from the M&S sale, £8. I didn't like them because they felt thick and clumpy on the back of my thighs. Claustrophic. I think they are what Anna of Mutton Style describes as Farmers' Jeans. You know, thick work-wear rigid denim that you struggle to move in.
I washed them but that didn't affect the thickness and that feeling of being hemmed in.
Too thick for our winters thought I (not knowing what was lurking in the east ...).
But hey, only £8 and too much faff to return to M&S so I kept them even though I suspected they'd end up as dumpers.
Then last week, when it was really cold and warmth around the legs was suddenly a pleasing thought, I gave them their LCS opportunity.
Well, I've worn them 3 times in the last week and I don't know if it's the wear the fabric is getting or it's me not bothering about them so much, but you know, I'm starting to like them.
So I really do recommend taking a LCS approach to items of clothing you are feeling iffy about. Give them that last chance.
So tell me, has your snow disappeared? From the Northern Hemisphere's readers' comments I think this transitional period is all over the place, with temperatures swinging 10-15 degrees within a few days. It's still snowing heavily in parts of northern Britain, yet here we're about to hit 12c.
Oh, enough of this weather talk, Pout!
I'll let you lovely readers go about your busy days/evenings.
I'm working on some outfit posts
so please pop back and check out what I'm wearing now that Spring is popping in on Chez Pout, and hear about some of my plans for this exciting season.
A la perchoine.
