The real Inklund

Apologies if posting has been a bit slow lately, but I am sick as a dog.  There has been a sudden cold snap here and I went down like a fly.  (Apparently last Sunday was the coldest in 117 years.  YEAH.  Thanks a lot.)

I'm so congested that my whole face hurts and I can't smell a thing, which is really annoying me.  I mean, what is the point of doing the smell test on my clothes if they all smell void?

Anyroad, here are some pictures from an outfit earlier in the week, when the temperature first dipped into the minuses. 

Dress - Primark.  Sweater - Esprit.  Coat - Tesco.
Socks - Marks and Sparks.  Sheer tights - H and M.  
Oxfords - New Look.  Earmuffs - Accessorise.  Earrings - Present!

Estimated temperature: -1.  Not kidding.

I bought this woolly sort of dress from Primark when I first got here, knowing I would probably have to break it out for winter, although I was not expecting the dead of winter to hit in November.  Nonetheless, it's warm and looks cute and though I find wool a little scratchy, it's nothing an inner layer won't solve.

I've been on a big knee-high socks kick recently and I love just how fabulous they look with all kinds of shoes and tights or leggings.  They really bring an element of playfulness to the outfit, which I love!

These cute studs are from a set that Shriya and Anjuly bought me for my birthday from Claire's which is a cross between sweetie-pie and rock 'n' roll looks.  They look great mixed and matched!

And, if you're wondering what mobility is like in an all wool dress, well, just look what I can do with it!

If you've never tried a double-decked piggy back, DON'T.  It's treacherous!  We nearly fell on our faces three times!

Super funky earrings! I've been thinking of just buying all the coats/clothes I need for when I'm in London in spring so I don't need to drag around a huge suitcase. Is this a wise choice if I just buy 'em in Primark?

@ Candy Apples - Thank you! I intend to stay as warm as possible!

@ Priii - Aww thanks! It's loads of fun!

@ Jenny - Thanks Jenny! :)

@ Arnique - Thanks! Okay so, Primark is ridiculously cheap, so yeah I think it's safe to buy most of the stuff in Primark. They have everything from thermals and sweater type shirts to coats. The only issue I would have is that their coats are not THAT warm depending on when you're coming to London.

So you might want to splurge a bit on one coat which is a little bit warmer, or buy a Primark coat in a slightly bigger size so you can layer more underneath. Hope that helps!
