Winter Solstice

Finally we have met the shortest day of the year, so now each afternoon there will be a *little* more light -each day a little brighter! In the last few moments of glorious sun yesterday, Ian and I ventured out into the cold for a few photos. This is an outfit I wear frequently, so it is a bit odd that it hadn't made it to the blog till now. This skirt and jumper are both pieces I bought on a whim, but that have remained in high rotation in my wardrobe. They were not expensive and when I bought them I really didn't think they would be very special. But I end up wearing them almost once a week! It always seems to be the unexpected things that end up being major staples in my wardrobe, and not the things I spend a tonne of money on, or desperately covet. What about you? Can you predict whether something will become a treasured favorite before you take it home?

Thank you for all your well wishes on my last post, I am feeling much better and my knitting has progressed in leaps and bounds!

    And I agree with Maria. The days are longer, and hotter and brighter, and then for you the snow is rapidly approaching. It's crazy to think about. :)
