Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it SNOW!


I L.O.V.E. snow, buuuuuuuut not when it affects me going to work (or out of my house in general), what I can and can't wear (I live in ballet pumps, and some people say this isn't practical in snow), or if I get cold, wet, ill or in one case in Germany when my hair literally froze (crispy hair is not a good look and damages hair cuticles).

But snow does have excellent pros too; snowmen, snowball fights, wrapping up in approximately 9 layers of clothing, getting rosy cheeks, when you're older you can play in the snow all day without your mum telling you to come in and stop sledging before you get pneumonia (unless she finds out what you've been doing on facebook - busted!).

Work/schools/shops and pretty much everything closes so it's freedom for everyone with all the streets being eerily quiet (remember Oxford Street this year, ghost town!), it makes even the most grotesque places look like a pretty winter wonderland (it can make Great Yarmouth look magical!), but most of all it's FUN!
 
But if your still weighing up the pros and con of all the snow coming our way, just think of all the fun layering you can now do, especially if you do it with Etsy. Etsy is the site for home-made goods (you can buy and sell) and I'm in love with all the cosy knitwear from Yokoo (made and modelled by her). A knitted bow will keep my head warm, right?

Or maybe this gorgeous grey scarf from warehouse which is plaited and bobbled with a chunky knit - looks like the perfect thing to wrap up in. Love the colour too.

Also try this gor-ge-ous Paul Smith Mohair cardigan that just screams 'put me on, and snuggle up!' so you can either play outside or curl up on the sofa. Available at paulsmith.co.uk.

Leather leggings from Helmut Lang at net-a-porter will keep you warm, stylish, and they're water proof! Win! Bring on the snowball fight!
And if we really must wear 'sensible' footwear, I'm not doing it unless I'm wearing these Vivienne Westwood Anglomania patent ankle boots from asos. They make wellies look good! Love the buttons and there's loads of style and colours to choose from!

Ok snow, bring it on!!!
