The weather has been all over the place recently: snow, rain, sunshine… OK, the last one has been in short supply… But when the sun does make a rare appearance, there’s not a moment to waste. If we want to get somewhat decent photos for the blog, I mean.
Thus, these photos were taken half an hour before sunset (which would be around 3.30 pm. Yeah, really…), on the way to a Christmas Market and then to dinner at a restaurant with hubby.
Because of the fickle (= wet, cold, disgusting) weather, I’ve been living in cashmere knits paired with jeans or cords lately, and I’m getting a bit tired of that. No, let’s rephrase that: I’m beginning to forget what it’s like to wear nice clothes. And by nice I mean a dress, or a skirt. Something stylish.
So, a day with a bit of sunshine for change was just the incentive I needed…
Oh, and as I like to be prepared for anything Mother Nature might throw at us, I’m wearing both sunglasses and wellies (or rubber boots for my American readers).
Aren’t these ankle boots just the coolest thing ever? They’re also very comfortable (as far as anything made of rubber can be comfortable), and they keep my feet dry.
Yes, I might be dying to wear a bit more stylish outfits for change, but that doesn’t mean compromising on comfort. And that means footwear has to be both functional (= in sync with the fickle weather) and fit for the occasion.

How do you dress for the weather?
