Flashback: A Post From the Archives

My blog was described as being obsessed with the weather last week.  And yes, the weather gets a lot of mentions.  But there's a good reason for that, as I wrote about back in 2006...

"Clothes, Shoes and the Weather
That’s how a friend described the contents of this blog the other day. And I suppose she’s right. But when you think about it, the three are inextricably linked. I have already posted about my method of how choice of footwear leads to the rest of my outfit, but surely weather also plays a part in the choices we all make everyday about what to wear. If it’s freezing cold outside, you wouldn’t go out in a summer dress without a coat, or go to work in strappy sandals without tights. Equally, on a hot summer’s day you wouldn’t wear your winter coat, thick sweater and boots. So I will expand my method of getting dressed to include the weather. As well as determining how far I need to walk in the day, I will also check whether it’s raining. Clearly, suede or open footwear will not be suitable for torrential rain, but neither will jeans with flat shoes which will allow the water to be soaked all the way up your legs (don’t you hate when that happens?!). So yes, I suppose it’s fair to say that this blog IS all about clothes, shoes and the weather."


  1. Got to agree, the weather in the UK is so unpredictable that it has a major impact on my outfits & choice of shoes.

  2. I live in Australia, and the weather impacts on what I wear as well. I always look at the forecast to decide what to wear, who doesn't?
