In the summer I often say, ‘ it’s too warm’ or ‘roll on winter’, because I just love my winter clothes. I have so many woollen jumpers, cardigans, hats, scarves and gloves all waiting for the colder weather. But really, I shouldn’t wish away the summer weather, as I forget that winter isn’t all blue skies, and sun shining on leaves and trees, and sparkling on a frosted pathway. Nope, here in the UK it’s often grey and glum, with a lot of rain and not even all that cold. In fact, it’s rather too warm for the time of year, which is verging on the alarming.
But rapidly moving away from this being another political post (I shall have that debate on climate on my other blog) for this post, which I’m sharing on Judith Boyd’s Hat Attack, I’ve got out a superb warm, and somewhat romantic winter hat.
The hat was bought last year at a vintage fair in Brighton for about £25, and I think it’s real fur, not sure what. At the fair I also bought this amazing faux fur coat.
Of course, it’s far too warm to wear these items now, but I live in hope, not for that awful damp cold that we often get in the UK. No, what I’d love are some sharp frosts, and a significant drop in the temperature. If at the same time we could have some blue skies and just a bit of sunshine that would be lovely! Here I am at the beginning of this year in a well-known spot not far from where I live – and the sun is shining! It’s ages since we had anything like the blue skies shown in the pic – deep sigh!
Hope you’re all keeping warm and well.

P.S. As I post this, for the first time for yonks, we’ve got blue skies – yippee!!
P.P.S I’m also linking this post with Catherine Summer’s #iwillwearwhatilike weekly share The theme is faux fur, which made me think of this lovely winter ensemble – thank you Catherine for your prompt!
