08.01 so over it

I’m so over this cold weather. I hate how frumpy wearing so many layers makes me feel, and how painful being outside is.
I envy the kids off school, who are laughing, screaming and building snowmen whilst I’m stuck shivering and dreading have to go outside.

Still, no sign of it letting up for a while, so better get used to it. Here are a couple more outfits that are put together out of warmth, and layering potential rather than what I’d actually like to be wearing.






As much as I love my pretty wellies I hate how cumbersome they are to walk in and I’m finding myself lusting over high heels and summer sandals more so than ever before!

I hope everyone is staying safe and warm, what are your weekend plans?

  1. The cold is arriving here to Spain too, Daisy, yaw!!
    I love both outfits, specially the first one, that sweater is gorgeous!! And the necklace is so sweet :D!

    Take care, dear!

  2. I hope the weather warms up for you πŸ™‚ That cupcake necklace is soo adorable!

  3. that necklace is cute hun, did ya make it ??
    and i love the dress outfit, and also your wellies..im sure the snow will be over soon xx

  4. I ventured out in the cold yesterday and had to layer to an unfathomable degree! But today I fully intend on staying indoors, again bundled up in many layers…I really hate the cold. I’m supposed to be back at uni on Monday but if the snow doesn’t clear I won’t be able to get there…Blizzard Britain’s a bit of a nightmare really!

    As for this weekend, if it’s cold I’ll probably stay in and become completely self-absorbed (whilst editing my dissertation), otherwise I’d really like to get in to town to visit the shops!

    Stay warm,

  5. Great mix the second one! I’ll try to relax this week end..I’m very tired.

  6. I’m sorry you’re so miserable luv! I love your gray cardi tho, really cute! & that cupcake looks edible πŸ™‚
    …This weekend I’m going back to school!

  7. Oh I don’t like the cold either! If I can, I stay inside all day with a big cup of tea πŸ™‚

    Beautiful jumper!

    Have a great weekend dear Daisy, cheers: Evi

  8. Lovely outfits!What a pretty cupcake necklace too!

  9. love love love the second outfit..so bright!

  10. I hope the cold will soon be over for you… x
    the first outfit looks sooo comfy and very casual. Love it!

  11. hey sweetie, I am layering too. it’s so cold esp in the mornings when I have to get up early for work. Love the necklace by the way. Oh and I noticed the Save Luella sticker on the side of your blog. Seems the problem is getting solved. Me and my bf went to the London shop and they were positive. My bf got me a gorgeous dress and bag from there just to help Luella along πŸ˜‰ will post photos of them.

    hope you are having a good day. thinking of you

  12. you have such cute style. i love how you rock the green leggings!

  13. Love the fist cowl sweater!

    P.S.: β™₯Please don’t forget to join the Miss C. Alexandria giveaway!β™₯

    Good luck!


  14. That grey cardie is adorable.

    I was so over the snow before it even started. Blah!


  15. the novelty of the snow has definitely worn off. love the necklace though!

    weekend plans = packing and coffee dates!

  16. I HATE winter too! πŸ™ I’ve been dreaming of the spring sunshine quite a lot lately! xoxo

  17. love a cozy sweater-but I agree it’s so much harder to want to look cute when it’s freezing xo

  18. I think the kids are the only ones enjoying this weather. Its fine to look at out of the window but really not when your trying to get anywhere. Luckily today has been my day off, which is rather good timing as I sit here watching the blizzard like snow fall from the sky yet again! Hopefully i’ll make it into work tomorrow and miss the next onset of snow with having Sunday and Monday off! I live in hope! Keep warm!

  19. As much as you hate layering you are really good at it! I love that poncho!

  20. Hello dear:)
    Thank you for always reading my blog, i really appreciate it.
    And i am so glad that you like my little stories and photographs.
    I love your outfit.The necklace is adorable , and the dress has such a beautiful pattern.And it has purple all over it, which is one of my fav colours:)
    I don’t wanna complain, just suggest something: i would love to see your photographs bigger, as the outfits are amazing.I’ve just discovered Windows Live Writer and i am in love with the fact that i can post bigger photos:))
    Take care and have a lovely weekend:)

  21. That slouchy 70s style in the first picture really works for you. I like it!! You should wear pants/jeans more often πŸ™‚

  22. That cupcake necklace is beyond precious! I wanted it to get cold her for long and boy did I get my wish. High of 36 tomorrow in FLORIDA!

  23. ohhh love the first jumper! we still have snow in Liverpool too! it hasnt snowed since Tuesday but it’s -7!

    For all things fashion:

  24. Hello’s hun happy new year I’ve still got your little gift to post.
    How are you? How was your Christmas?x
    I’ve had no computer and am dreading checking my emails LOL because I just know the volume of spam is going to be high!

    This very white weather is shit eh? I too am sick of winter wear. Enough already, come on Spring roll on!
    peace & hugs
    prettyneons XxX πŸ˜‰

  25. I know what you mean, it’s so cold outside and I want to wear heels but that’s impossible with snow..

    Nice looks, love that bootcut jeans on you!

  26. Jen

    Oh, it just sucks at the moment, doesn’t it? I’m so bored of looking outside and seeing white everywhere. I want to wear a dress and pumps and my leather jacket, rather than jeans and boots and my massive parka. Rubbish!

    You still look wondrous, however. πŸ™‚

  27. Pia

    can’t wait for warm weather too! and your cupcake necklace is just precious!!

  28. Love both outfits, esp. the second one! So many great colours!

  29. I’d love to share some sun with you… here is summer and it’s very hot…
    I really like ur sweater but ur second outfit it’s my favorite!
    greetings from Peru

  30. Love the first outfit especially that jumper πŸ™‚ I really like the purple dress with the green tights they really go πŸ™‚
    I got a little frustrated cos I wanted to be one of the kids that had a day off school and go sledging but instead I had to move all my stuff and clean the flat πŸ™
    I love how pretty the snow makes everything but I really hate how deadly the ice is at the moment

  31. you should wear jeans more, you look so great in them. love that necklace, too.
    have a lovely weekend, darling Laura.

  32. love your sweater. and yeah, i’m with you about the weather.

  48. I love that big sweater and your boots. πŸ™‚

  49. i really wish it was spring too πŸ™ i can’t wait to not have to wear my gloves all the time and millions of layers!

  50. Love the sweater in the first set and the tights in the second!

  51. Kb

    I agree, it’s tricky to layer, but you managed it well. I think you have to rely on tights to keep an outfit interesting, I love the green. Hope you have a great weekend planned, mine will be filled with shopping and exploring!

  52. this is my mvie weekend ^.^

  53. very cute necklace πŸ™‚
    my weekend plans are to attempt to stay warm too haha

  54. in love with that big turtle neck sweater!!!

  55. I definitely agree… it’s ok for a few days but I’ve had enough of the bizarre cold weather. It’s so annoying having to layer up before you leave the house…

    but I do love that chunky knit sweater you’re wearing!

  56. Snow has taken its toll on me… grrrrr and brrrrr πŸ™

  57. Aw dear, I wish you could fly away, every winter, to some lovely, warm island so you don’t have to suffer through the bitter cold!

    I actually like cold weather sometimes, but right now my hands are numb (and I can’t type well, with gloves on…I’ve tried! :P), and I wouldn’t mind jetting off to a warm climate myself!

    Anyway, hope you’re doing well, dear, I miss you! And thanks for your sweet comment! β™₯

  59. MJ
