Baby, its cold outside…

Being British, I’m obsessed with the weather. I love to check a weather app.

The Beast from the East. Snow. Cold, cold and more cold it would appear is what we have to look forward to for the foreseeable future. And in the words of the most marvellous Tom Jones and Cerys Matthews ‘Baby, it’s cold outside’. And I’m done with it. I don’t like being cold. Officially. I’m over it.

I was wanting to look at all things spring – perhaps just some pretty things that even if we can only dream of right them right now, they would give us hope. But… but… as the weather is distracting me I seemingly can’t possibly comprehend spring-ish things at this point in time.

Therefore I’m left asking, what do we need right now? Thermals. Oh be still my beating heart. I didn’t think that there would be much to get excited about, but I’ve sort of been proven wrong. The possibilities of thermals have become a little more interesting since the days of just Damart Catalogues.

M&S as we would hope and expect – seriously upped the game… boom – love this print, £16 with Heatgen technology. (Heatgen = special fibres to keep super warm + they are lightweight.)

Now (almost) back to where I was meaning to get to… which was all things spring and hopeful and shocker, colourful… this Heatgen thermal long sleeve top, M&S £16  worn under a jumper or sweatshirt with sleeves pulled up slightly for a pop of spring time joy…  lovely.
