Today was a windy day, as you can probably tell! Cold isn’t too bad – as long as they’re kept to short bursts mini shoots are manageable – but wind is just the ultimate pain in the arse. Frizz and flyaways are persistent in my hair at the best of time, so I really have no chance in a battle of good hair vs. wind. I think I maybe misjudged and dressed more autumn appropriate than winter, but oh well. Mustard is a fairly in-your-face colour that I thought may fall out of fashion a little back when I bought this cardigan, but I’m still seeing plenty mustard turning up in new-in sections so I think I’m good for now!
Seeing as I have my mock exams coming up, I thought today would be a good time to write up a schedule of sorts for everything going on here there and everywhere. When I’ll revise, when I’ll blog (or do bloggy stuff) when I’ll do christmassy things etc. is all on there. Filling in my iPod calendar just doesn’t have the same effect: funny how putting pen to paper and physically seeing what I need to has made me feel a lot more in control! Yep, control freak right here. 😉 As long as I know what I’m doing and when at busy times, I’m happy. Although occasionally I find myself focusing far more on planning than actually doing! That’s a trap I need to avoid falling into.
Anyone who’s been following JoliHouse for quite some time now may possibly recognise this Altounyan cowl, which did a pretty good job insulating my neck considering the foul weather! Built in knitted dimples help it keep it’s shape (and therefore not just drape like a necklace) and I like how they add a subtle texture too. Pattern is downloadable for free here, and I promise you’d have time to whip one up before Christmas!
On a final note, what do you guys think of this as a christmas party dress? My thinking is that if I buy a non-sparkly dress, then I can always sparkle it up with accessories, and it’ll be easier to re-style and layer than a full on glitzy number. In theory anyway 😉
Have a lovely week people! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
