Let's Button Up

6.12.10

Currently, everything around me appears to me moving in slow motion. I blame the light flurries and the fact that for the first time in a long time, I'm home on a Monday morning cozied up in a blanket sipping copious amounts of earl grey tea. It's the little things. I'm watching Runaway Bride with one eye and typing this post with the other. I apologise in advance if nothing is coherent. Trying to figure out why a lady keeps planning, but ends up fleeing from her wedding is taking up a bigger chunk of my brain than necessary.

I 've fancied the idea of a buttoned up shirt for quite some time and decided to give it a go at the risk of blocking my wind pipes. As if it wasn't hard enough to breath with all the frozen air out there. And because there's nothing like a bit of colour to kick start the day, I paired it with vibrant blue leggings.

Say, where can a girl find a decent pair of winter boots around here? I have a feeling the upcoming months are not going to be too kind to me. 

Happy Monday everybody! See you soon.
Bisous, 
Abi

@Amalie: Hehehe. Surprisingly, when the snow is falling, I find it to be a bit milder. But of course, I couldn't have survived more than a few minutes without freezing my tush off. This was just right outside my flat.

I always button my blouses to the top and I love the dash of blue! It's, well, dashing.

Re: boots
I would say The Bay. But if you can, I would wait until after Christmas, because they'll probably be on sale. They probably won't be cutting-edge glamourous, but last year anyway they had some perfectly nice ones, my sister got a pair.

I really adore the white shirt popping out at the end of the sleeves and the collar. Good luck with finding winter boots. I haven't a clue as I'm pretty much in the same boat as you!

Adore the black/gray/navy color scheme. It always feels so fresh and modern to me. I never tire of it!
