But why onions?
Layers! Layers that are mainly shades of grey so you can understand my dilemma now, I hope!
The weather is so darn changeable that what might start as a cold & frosty morning, morphs into a wet & mild afternoon and by the evening it's nippy-norman again - so, layers can be mighty useful as you can remove and replace as the day progresses.
First up is my coat from Topshop. I adore the shape, it's roomy, warm and the bouclé texture makes it that little bit more exciting on the eye. Also, if it bobbles with age - who can tell?
This jumper isn't, for whatever reason, on the H&M website (grr again!) but if you click on the picture it will take you to the brown version of it. Yes, a bit disappointing I know, but at least I'm directing you to the same style jumper and not some totally random 'substitute' á la online grocery shopping!
OK, now for the tights and if I zoom in....
I departed with my much loved, seen better days, denim mini skirt last year and have been on the lookout for a replacement since. There were lots of them around in the summer, but they were either too distressed and/or way too short, i.e. my jumpers would have been longer! I'd seen some great denim pencil skirts in the shops but I knew I wanted something shorter and more casual. Inspiration hit me this week and so I paid Fat Face a visit and... bingo! Exactly what I was looking for. It's also available in black.
Until then, I'll leave you with a photo of my friend Joey doing the layer thang....
