Yes, snow requires capitals and three exclamation marks: It's that exciting. It also requires an appropriately snow-bunny outfit.
I've previously extolled the virtues of skirts and dresses for cold weather, and I stand by it all 100% - for weeks now I've been rotating various wool pencil skirts, my two vintage quilted skirts and my me-made London Calling circle skirt. A full skirt with insulating layers of petticoat underneath is excellent protection against the chill - add a pair of knee-high socks and I'm cosy-warm for a stroll in the snow.
I love the pink, grey and navy tones in this circle skirt, and I picked them up through the rest of the outfit. For a different way with a beret, I styled the front of my hair and wore the beret over the rest like a snood.
(secret tip: the lucite brooch and a few strategically placed safety pins kept the scarf draped 'casually' in place)

Although we live in London (we've got a proper London postcode and everything!), there's a surprisingly country village feel to this area. We're literally yards from the Grand Union canal, and just on the other side of this lies a large meadow which is a lovely place for a stroll. This is how we cross the canal - I'm sure you can just picture me in my heels, edging across that narrow, snow-covered lock gate, inches from the icy water, clutching my handbag in one hand and camera in the other!
But, on the other side...
