Getting to work yesterday was a disaster. The weather was awful – the strong wind meant the rain was sweeping across in horizontal waves (umbrella quickly consigned to Argyll Street’s infamous brolly cemetery) and by the time I got to the office I was soaked through. A cab home and back (£15 down – grrrr) and I was at my desk more suitably dressed for winter.
This is my new favourite jumper, which I think I’ll be living in for the next 6 months. Bought at the weekend, reduced from £38 to £15 in the River Island sale. I like the colours and the ever-so-slightly swingy shape:
While in River Island I found a few other things to add to the wishlist. This grey jumper would be a good basic for wearing with black jeans or shorts:
On the subject of shorts, this tailored pair would come in useful as they’re slightly dressier than the ones I already have. These could be worn over different types of woolly, coloured and ribbed tights, which means I wouldn’t get bored with them:
I really want a pair of Chelsea boots and the heel on these would save my trousers from trailing on wet pavements. Yesterday I realised that I have too many suede/impractical boots and shoes, so buying these would be totally justified!
How do you cope with getting to work on horrible rainy days (or are you lucky enough to have a car – swoon!).
