Quest for a Functional Wardrobe - Blizzard Wind

Blizzard wind. The breeze was a little icy today, but that’s not what I’m referring to. Rather, it’s the name of the paint colour we are using for our garage interior walls – the first coat going on as I type. It’s nothing fancy, just a really pale grey that is not far off white. It fascinates me how there are so many paint colours in existence and they all have individual names, particularly around the white spectrum. How fun would that job be, naming the new paint colours!

I’d love to be helping paint tonight, but unfortunately I have to notch up some hours at work before the weekend so that’s my priority. There’ll be another one or two coats after this though, so I should definitely get the chance to do my bit.

It’s that time of year – we’ve had a taste of warmer weather but it’s settled back into the cool again. In the meantime I really feel like I’m running out of ideas, so this outfit is a slight variation on a couple of others. Which kind of feels like cheating, but at the same time it’s what creating a functional wardrobe is about!

Quest for a Functional Wardrobe - Spring In The Air

The air was decidedly warmer today with next week’s forecast looking glorious indeed. Spring is in the air! I celebrated by ditching the socks for the first time in months.

This was an outfit that came together accidentally and I loved how it turned out. I consider this top to be purple – albeit a rather blueish purple – but it blended really well with this blue and red scarf. Close enough to belong, yet not so close as to be really “matchy”.

This is one of my favourite scarves – it’s generously sized but with a soft drape so it doesn’t feel overwhelming. I love the proportions of large scarf with short-sleeved top – one I’m sure I’ll be repeating as the warmer weather continues to creep in.

I’m wearing the same scarf as yesterday.┬áIt wasn’t my plan, but my outfit was missing something and this scarf filled the gap nicely. One thing I’m definitely going to miss about winter is my scarves – my favourite accessory by far! Less fussy and delicate than jewellery, so very practical when spending your day with little kids.
