Another quick one I’m afraid, tumblr, on account of I have little to say other than I am so over this bleeding winter already! The above was taken in the World’s Most Delightful and Sweet Smelling Giftshop® just a couple of weeks ago, when I thought spring might actually be springing after quite the most relentless winter…but no.
My joy at being able to winterise a couple of summer skirts after an eternity of motheaten woollies, (for realz; the moths have been a scourge-and-a-half this past season), was short-lived and we had snow again this weekend. My heating bill promises to be stratospheric, and the low dose of amitriptylene I take for my fibro has failed for the first time ever to take the edge of my SAD.
But, hey, five minutes of vaguely spring-like weather is better than nothing I suppose, and I really liked this combo. The moment I tried this sweater on I knew I’d be wearing it with this skirt as soon as the opportunity presented itself as the neck detail picks up all the shades of coral and pink in the print.
In case you’re wondering about the variations in colour, I mistakenly took a load of pics with completely the wrong setting on my camera – so half the shots came out looking rather cold and clinical while the others were inexplicably bathed in soft-focused golden light. I suspect hue-wise the truth is somewhere in between.
By the way, this is the only picture I’ve ever seen of myself from the side that I genuinely like, though I couldn’t tell you why. Toodles, y’all. Back with knitwear again in due course.
