I find that I wear skirts and dresses in the winter months a lot more than the summer months, because I'm big on tights and not so much on bare legs (eeek). This is my new wool skirt teamed with my favourite teal tights - if you're in the UK and looking for coloured tights that are thick enough for winter (well autumn anyway) but not woolly, then try Gap, I'm loving the colours and the fact that they're not too sheer.
We all managed to venture out briefly today, just so that Bella could get her face painted at Borders (she stunned everyone to begin with by asking for her face to be painted like a pig!!) and have a hot chocolate. We had planned to stay out for lunch but it became evident pretty quickly that no one had the energy or patience to really commit to it, so we cut it short and came back home instead for a day of tv watching, reading and sewing.
