Guys, I’m struggling. I keep going on about it, but I just can’t hack winter this year. It. Has. Not. Stopped. Being. Grey. Usually with rain and wind and temperatures under 5 degrees. It’s not only horrible conditions to take photos for this here blog, but also doesn’t really make me feel like getting dressed nice either. Or at all, really – who’d want to leave the house in this? I struggle every year with the cold months but this has definitely been one of the worst I remember (although also for other reasons I’ll go into in another post soon).
So this outfit is a rare example recently where I actually tried, and again it’s thanks to Karina Dresses for sending me another pretty to review. And yes, it also helps that these dresses are mega comfortable. Red is always one of my feel-good colours, which is why it was one of the main colours at my wedding (and if you’re a new reader, I’ve put all of my wedding posts in one handy place for you). In the summer, there’s not much some red lippy can’t fix… but it’s not quite enough in the winter! This dress gave it a good go at cheering me up – and I do think the pattern is a bit different but totally cute. This particular style is sleeveless though, and that certainly wasn’t happening! I actually wore this dress on Christmas day, which is how I first tested the you-can-eat-all-the-food-in-Karina-dresses theory.
As I type this, one of my favourite summer songs, The Beach Boys’ Kokomo has come on the radio. Is it to remind me that better days are ahead…? Or to answer the question in my head I was just asking about whether I should post up a honeymoon look I never got round to sharing while it’s still freezing out?? I’d like to think it might be both! Like so many things, this funk is just temporary and I’m sure the sun is round the corner…
