Melt Away, Winter Cold

Last night I tried to style an outfit around this pretty floral jacket I thrifted at Value Village a couple of months ago and then never wore. I had fun following my boyfriend's silly posing orders. The one shown here was a result of "pretend you're a melting clock!" Probably inspired by the Dali print in the background. Even though it isn't The Persistence of Memory... That ironing board is a hideous relic from the 90s, but Kevin insisted I take photos with it. Oh well, the 90s are having a comeback right?




The weather has decided to be especially cruel last night and this morning, with a short bout of snow and cold winds after what has been a relatively nice couple of weeks. That means that, for the meantime at least, my hopes of breaking out some lighter fabrics have been dashed again. Today I went off to school wearing my Topshop jodhpurs and two layers of sweaters. I did try to brighten things up by mixing lime green and lemon yellow though! I haven't really been posting many of my school outfits on the blog since, to be honest, they're dreadfully boring and super casual.

I'm ready for summer to come now. Please?

The floral jacket definitely comes alive on you...I'm not quite sure what to make of it if I just saw you on a hanger.
Dali's my favourite Surrealist...and those clocks have nothing on you ;)

That jacket, is to die for. I'm seriously in amazement by looking at it. I can't believe you got it at a thrift store.

I love the first picture. I wish I had a photographer to boss me around. I feel like I've used up all my poses.

That jacket is incredible. It looks great with the texture of the skirt.

Very beautiful jacket. I've never seen anything like it! The pink Joe blouse on acupofvogue.blogspot.com is from two seasons ago, I believe. I bought it on sale in September! But I have still seen a few random ones hiding in their racks!
