Happy 2018 my beautiful friends! As I write this, I’m curled up on the sofa in our fabulous hotel suite at the Grand Pavilion Hotel in Saratoga Springs. It’s actually much milder outside today at just –14˚C! I know, crazy right? It’s the coldest we’ve ever felt. Unfortunately, this has meant that all my plans for some fabulous outfit posts while on holiday have had to be put on hold. It’s just too darn cold to go out without my thermals, extra layers, hat, scarf, gloves, hood up, snow boots etc! If we’re connected on Instagram, you will probably already know what I’m talking about…
Happy New Year to all my wonderful friends! This is the reason I haven’t been able to do any style posts: at -19°C it’s just too cold to wear anything except this jacket, my thermals, thick scarf, hat and gloves…not to mention my hood up almost all the time! Hopefully it’ll warm up soon so I can photograph all the wonderful clothes / accessories gifted to me over the past month!! 😘😘
So here are some outfit photos from before my holiday in the US…
You might remember this gorgeous navy blue shift dress from the summer, when I wore it out to a lovely dinner with friends. When I bought it from Quebramar in Portugal, I had a feeling that I’d be able to wear it in the winter with thick tights and a polo neck, and I was right. I love the result!
I apologise about the quality of photos – since the winter set in, it’s become more and more difficult to take outfit photos outdoors so I had to resort to my en-suite bathroom! It’s a lovely backdrop though, don’t you think? 😉
But back to the outfit, I glammed it up a bit with a beautiful necklace that I bought about a year ago in the sales but it had a little problem that needed fixing and we didn’t get round to it until about 15 minutes before these photos were taken lol.
In the winter, I do love to wear boots and my tan suede Massimo Dutti pair were my footwear of choice for this outfit. I don’t wear them often enough though, probably because they’ve got heels and my poor bunions do suffer in heels!
I’m hoping that I’ll be able to share some outfit posts from my holiday here very soon. Fingers crossed that the weather warms up enough! I’ve got some gorgeous gifted items with me that I can’t wait to show you all!
But in the meantime, I hope you’re all thoroughly enjoying the new year. I have a feeling it’s going to be simply amazing. So do stay warm, be joyful and healthy. Happy 2018 my lovely friends!
