Outfit: And Winter Came




LK Bennett Shilo

Greetings from the Frozen North! Winter has arrived with a vengeance this morning – it was white over with frost and the temperature as I drove to work hovered around 0 and 1°C. I was glad I’d layered up!


And Winter Came is also the title of an album by Enya that I’ve been listening to a lot recently. It’s too early for Christmas tunes yet but this album is quite a good stop-gap: it is festive and wintery without being explicitly Christmassy. Think candlelight, cosy fires and snow, rather than Santa, Rudolph and Baby Jesus. I really like it.

  1. Hi, did you get that skirt recently? I am in the market for a leopard print skirt and haven't been able to find one!

  2. I got it last spring I think, they had a load of different printed stretchy pencil skirts at the time.

  3. So adorable and I usually do not like the animal prints. You did a great job here, I think it looks great. I'm sort of jealous of your weather - it's been 90 degrees here all week, and that's just too warm for the fall.

    Have a great week!
