A shade for winterMonday, January 11, 2016
I bought this dark burgundy fine knit tank a while ago and have worn it a couple of times, though I'm fairly sure it's never made it as far as the blog. My favourite shirt to layer underneath it is this wonderful rugged checked, button-through, long sleeved one. It's a thick, almost rough fabric with elbow patches. What more could you ask for? The colours are definitely of the sombrer edge of my wardrobe's spectrum and ones I would almost certainly reserve for autumn and winter only. Winter deserves it's fair measure of murky shades.
There was such a strong, relentless breeze blowing that my hair was going everywhere! Three quarters of the pictures we took were of me trying not hold my hair off my face. I was thankful when my coat (and hat and gloves) were safely back on. Brrrr!
These Mango skinny jeans are one of the precious few pairs that are still a reasonably comfortable fit. A good level of elastane in the mix makes for a much happier Sophie. Magnum boots for a good level of ankle support on the beach. Most of the going was firm sand, but that awful stuff you sink right into can be a right nuisance to walk through.
