Cherries in the Snow


Did I mention I love snow? It was coming down steadily all day Sunday, and I couldn't resist going out for a little promenade in the swirling flurries of snowflakes. There's just something so, so fun about crunching through freshly fallen, powdery snow. It was cold though - colder than the previous day - and I can tell you I was glad of my layers of cashmere and wool.


We wandered to one of the two nearby Victorian cemeteries, which was so wonderfully serene covered in a soft, sparkling layer of white. We strolled around a while, enjoying the peaceful stillness of the place and the quiet beauty of carved Victorian memorials under the still-falling snow.

Sadly the snow has all since melted, but fingers crossed it might snow again before the winter is over - snowy outfit posts are fun!

  1. I like those crochet tights! I have recently started buying mine from TK Maxx (Greenford) - they cost about the same as New Look but are more upmarket brands so last longer.

  3. How lovely!!! :) I especially adore the cape! Someone recently gifted me a big, heavy wool cape, and I so wish I had gotten it cleaned before it really turned cold here (it's full of dust right now! ;) ). But like you said: we still have plenty of winter left! hehe!

  4. Love this outfit! I must hunt down that fabulous umbrella. I have a black and white dogtooth wool cape that I haven't worn yet because I'm too scared to wear it in public.

  5. And here I thought your post might be about the Revlon lipstick of the same name. lol!

    I love this outfit! Such a bright spot with all the snow behind you. All the black/gray/red is delightful and that cape is just amazing!

    1. Haha I wondered if anyone would spot the connection! I would like to say I was wearing the lipstick too, but sadly I wasn't :)

  7. You are so endlessly stylish but I swear you excel in the winter.

    Also, any Doctor Who fans will be seriously creeped out by this post ;)

  10. Haha, my first thought was lipstick, too! You look very dashing. I love looking round old graveyards, always fascinating. I am absolutely as cross as anything, we haven't had so much as a flake, now it's back to damn rain, it is soooo unfair!

  12. Don't Blink! (sorry I watch too much Doctor Who)
    I am so jelous of your hair. If I was out in the snow it would be flat and lifeless after 5 seconds.
