Either I ate too much chocolate over the holidays, or these jeans are super unflattering...? That's right, I'm wearing jeans. I find denim neither comfortable nor elegant, but the recent bombardment of heavy snow across England meant I needed something a bit more durable to go and play outside in. If I'm going to be in jeans, they have to be skinny fit, preferably with a high waist. I got this high-waisted pair from H&M a few months ago for the grand sum of £10. They hardly get worn though as I feel a bit odd in jeans.... and I don't know whether its the thicker material, but as I mentioned at the start of this post, I just feel kind of chunky in them.
The earrings I'm wearing are a Victorian seed pearl pair I got for Christmas. I was a bit worried they'd look huge and garish on me, but they're actually a nice size with just the right amount of dangle. They seem to have some sort of crescent moon/foliage wreath thing going on... certainly a more unusual pair of antique earrings. I also got the fur hat for Christmas. It is brown, but in some shots it just melds in with my hair and makes me look like I have a hair helmet* on. But unlike my other hats, it actually keeps my ears warm and toasty.
