A White Winter

Finally; it snowed! I have been crossing my fingers for weeks that Christchurch would snow this winter. It came true at eleven o’clock last night. I had my nose pressed up against the window before bedtime, and at six o’clock the next morning I was fully dressed and ready  for a winter frolic! We made actual snow cones, went for a huge walk, and built a tiny snowman which we soon knocked over during snowball ‘target practice’.

I kept warm in a Carly Harris button down cape which I paired with jockey style ASOS suede patch leggings. On my feet I wore waterproof vintage boots which belonged to my mum in the 1980s. I stopped the chills on my neck by wearing a faux fur ASOS buckle scarf, which was supremely warm! And when the cameras weren’t looking, I popped on a pair of rainbow coloured vintage mittens to keep my hands warm as I prepared for snowball fights galore!

  6. Jo,
    First I must say that you look beautiful in your winter outfit!!! Here in the States it is Summer and seems so hard to think about the cold on the other side of the world. I do love the peacefulness that the Winter snow seems to bring. Stay warm dear friend. Thanks you for sharing♥

  8. Love what you’re wearing for the snowy day! It’s so odd seeing the snow, when it’s sooo hot here. I can’t wait for it to cool down.

  9. You look so cute! I love your stole! And everything looks so beautiful! But surreal too – as it’s the hottest summer here. And, no, I so don’t want snow for a very, very long time! :))

  10. You look GORGEOUS in red! I love that cape. And I can’t wait until it’s winter here. I miss snow! Of course, it usually just rains and rains… but still. I miss the cold weather where I can layer things.

  12. I live somewhere with oh-so-snowy winters…. so snowy that I’ve basically ended up loathing snow, but it’s so hot right now… I actually find myself wishing for snow! Especially if I could wear a wonderful red cape like yours.

    I didn’t know you were in New Zealand! I’ve been reading for 2 months, apparently I don’t read very well.

    I hope all the snow from Dunedin falls gently in Christchurch instead for you…. I hate snow so much.

  20. You look so beautiful and elegant! I love, love, love your outfit. The very first snowfall during winter is magical, isn’t it? England had a very snowy winter last December and I couldn’t keep warm enough while I was living there. I hope you are drinking some hot chocolate with marshmallows!

  23. Congrats on getting snow. I’d willingly send you some of ours if our winters aligned because we get too much here in the Midwest of the United States. Love your leggings!
