Layering Up: Over 40 Style


Layering Up: Over 40 Style

Layering Up: Over 40 Style

Hello Friends. Happy Friday. Any fun plans for the weekend? 

My Husband has the weekend off work so hopefully, we will be getting out and about somewhere fun!? I hope you are keeping nice and warm in this freezing cold weather? 

It has been so cold over the last few weeks. 

This week we have had light snow, heavy snow and now freezing snow {is there any other kind of snow!}. I love to see the snow at first. It looks beautiful when it is freshly fallen snow. Now it is freezing over and nothing worse for slipping and sliding on.

The snow is that bad that over the last few days the children have been off school as it has been closed due to the bad weather. It has been over 5 years since it was last closed with the snow. 

I thought it was cold last week but nothing like this.

Here I am layering up to keep nice and warm on or walk around the lake with my Husband, Daughter and Mollie The Collie a few weeks back.

We took a lovely Sunday afternoon stroll around and I was trying to keep warm and cosy. I took my glove off for a minute or two and my fingers went numb, brr!!!

What I Wore: 

Hat: Primark | Jumper: c/o ALDI | Cardigan: F&F Tesco | Leggings: Primark | Boots: Hunters | Bag: Cath Kidston.

A nice long walk in the fresh air really does blow the cobwebs away. A nice long walk that kept us moving very quickly before or we started to freeze too! I also got the chance to wear my new red Hunter wellies that my Husband got me for Christmas.

I was saving them for best; but why!? 

We have snow now and they are made for snow.

Do you have snow too? 

Hopefully not long now to warmer weather. 

Spring is just around the corner.

How have you been keeping warm over the last few weeks?

Have you been layering up too?

Do you save new things for best?

  6. I love your red cardigan and Hunter wellies! I was wearing wellies the other day when the wind chill factor was supposed to be about -11C and my toes went numb after 5 minutes - even with two pairs of socks on!

  18. I do tend to save new things for best but thats more to do with the kids than anything since they are still really little. Most of the clothes I buy now are pretty practical, once Kipper is out of the toddler stage I may start buying things which dont need to be quite so hard wearing! x
