Ah the dreaded snow has arrived. You can blame that for the dark pictures - these were taken about 3pm! I wore this for my sister in laws 21st birthday meal at the weekend. I wanted to wear something a bit dressy but also weather appropriate. I think I just about managed it. I brought this amazing cape with my birthday money last week. My boyfriend has quipped that I look like Gandalf the Great but i'm ok with that. At least i'll be cosy in the cold! I always feel like i've taken a step back into yesteryear with this hat on. Just not too keen on the hat hair afterwards.

How have you been coping in the snow? I personally can't wait until it all melts away and everything ccan go back to normal. Getting to work is a complete nightmare!
