Brrrr, it's still freezing here and I'm sick of spending my days in jeans, boots and thermals. I'm hankering for the days of spring, the sun shining and the birds singing and the opportunity to leave the house without wearing 12 layers! Until then I am doing my best to feel better by adopting the look I like to call 
'Granny Chic'...







The basic idea is to wrap up warm, while still looking effortlessly feminine.
Well done Keira, top of the class!



Still, I can't wait for the sun to start shining....

Most of Britain is under a thick blanket of snow at the moment. It looks beautiful but I must confess, I prefer to stay inside under these conditions. A cosy fire and a good book and I'm happy...
