blackout

...kinda.

I don't know about you but in this miserable weather, I just want to wear black. I'm in mourning for the summer! As much as I love the cosiness of winter - the snuggling up at home and the zero-guilt comfort food - I'm sorta over it. Once Christmas is done with and the weather gets even colder, I just crave the summer. Bring me the warm days and light evenings!

So in these last couple of months of chilly, gloomy weather (it'll be done by Easter, right?) I will be mostly embracing this dark hue, whilst it's still acceptable. As they say, I'll stop wearing black when they invent a darker colour.

Oversized Cardigan Esprit
Ankle Boots H&M

I bought this River Island roll neck jumper on a whim just before Christmas, it's jersey material unlike the other knitted roll necks I own which means its super versatile. I love wearing it under dresses and other jumpers, adding another layer of warmth! Everything looks better with a roll neck. This oversized cardi is great for injecting a little bit of variation on the black theme. I'm still trying to figure out if I'm on board with oversize cardigans making a come back - I loved a cardi back in the day, but not sure if they've had their day. This, this and this are tempting me, though!
