Blizzard Wind

Quest for a Functional Wardrobe - Blizzard Wind

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.

I’m wearing the same scarf as yesterday. It 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.

I didn’t realise until I went to write up today’s post that my outfit is incredibly similar to one I’ve worn before. Shock, horror!

Can I Be Of Assistance?

September 2012

The first time I wore this outfit was towards the end of my first month of blogging, so it’s interesting note what has changed since then:

* Stripes with spots – I don’t think that had crossed my mind as a possibility back then
* I’ve discovered some more interesting ways to tie scarves
* I’m a little less awkward in photos
* It’s still hard to look dignified in windy weather
* I’m more likely to have one blazer cuff rolled up and the other down and not even notice. For hours. Whoops.

Quest for a Functional Wardrobe - Wonder Woman Dare

Today’s style dare: Wonder Woman. That’s a tough one! I went for a wonder woman colour scheme, red and blue (with some specks of yellow through my scarf in lieu of gold). And I did feel a bit Wonder-Womanish earlier today – after working until midnight last night I was managing to exercise a lot of patience with a highly emotional Little Miss H. Alas, after returning from a visit to the local park there appeared a distinctly un-Wonder-Womanish twinge in my back, leaving me sore and moving gingerly the rest of the day. Here’s hoping it wakes up fine tomorrow morning!
