Layers

There has been some sunshine today, but, oh, the bitter chill, because there was also snow and gale-force winds. It was extremely unpleasant to venture out of doors. I am wearing several layers of clothing in order to be warm.
So it is a button up to the chin cardigan from French Connection underneath a mohair mix jumper from Warehouse. Both are ancient, both are cozy! The jumper is feather light and very shapeless
and my mirror needs a clean!
For Patti's Visible Monday at Not Dead Yet Style.
It was Mothering Sunday yesterday and I had a present to open.
I admired the box and ribbon before looking to see what was inside.
Lovely, a set of candles
for all occasions.
(Not for being 'arty', the 'p' hasn't shown up in the photo.)
Who's that talking to James Dean?
I wonder what she's telling him?

    1. The pussy willows I love. The outfit is lumpy and I'm so tired of being muffled up.

  3. The outfit is lovely. Soon it will be warm and the layers can come off. It won't be long now.

    1. "won't be long now' - I can tell that you're an optimist!

  4. Love your delicate layers with your cozy boots to ground the whole! Little 'Uggs" get such a bad rap, when they are a woman's best friend in chilly, nasty cold weather.
    Cute. Completely cute and admirable.

    1. I don't wander out in these boots, Jan, I just slob about in them at home - they are toasty warm!

  5. The woman speaking to James Dean is actress Ursula Andress. She was a one-time girlfriend of James Dean and became known as one of the early "Bond Girls". She was married to John Derek (before Bo) and had a long affair with actor Harry Hamblin. She must have been quite young in that picture because she was born in 1936 and James Dean died in 1955. I love how Google can find anything!
