Blizzard Bombshell?

Two words: snow day. While everyone from other, colder parts of the world will be rolling her eyes at my one foot of snow, I was literally shrieking with excitement when I woke up to find that Sunday's snow had stayed, and that been covered by fresh sprinklings of snow that fell during the night and all through the rest of the day. My sixth form closed and all the roads snowed off, I spent the day with one of my best friends, photography student and future Annie Leibovitz to be, Ellie, hanging out in a local field turned winter wonderland. I fell down a snow mini snow drift, got my butt covered in snow, watched little kids sledging and Ellie's sister throw snow dive, before running back into the warm for delicious Cadbury's hot chocolate and the sounds of MGMT.
Coat: Jane Norman
Scarf: Primark
Hat: Millets, because I'm a trepid explorer really
Not to be forgotten, here's my beautiful little Bichon Frise, wrapped up in a coat and venturing in the garden in the snow. At one point at the snow was so deep that it came up to his nose, he later fell down a snow drift and had to be rescued ... but he actually loved it, and later cried at the front door for me to take him on a mini walk in the snow.

I woke up with snow too, but in here it's just basics, for first it's great but after a month or two you just get really bored!

I like the whole look. I would give it a skirt though (but again, I would give a skirt to every single look on Earth):)
