Being loaded with cold, depressed by the rain and after a few bouts of bad luck; this weekend has left me wanting to curl up underneath the covers and hide. When things aren't going your way and you're feeling a little under the weather, it's hard to find the motivation to drag yourself out of the house. Let alone put together a nice outfit for a shopping trip! Since we're now in May, I've started to brave getting my legs out. And even on days where the weather isn't cooperating, I'm refusing to go back into tights until there's at least snow on the ground. Because it rained most of yesterday, I decided to compromise with a pair of cropped trousers. Bretons with black trousers and jeans are pretty much obligatory uniform for when I'm not in the mood to figure out what to wear. In an attempt to perk myself up a little (and distract from my swollen eyes and the redness of my nose), I decided to add to my little Parisian ensemble with some bright red ballet pumps and lipstick. There is a slight difference though: Paris is beautiful in the rain, Newcastle not so much.
