Yes, February is almost over, but there is still time for another instalment of my "Fashion Calendar" which I started in January, apparently quite to the liking of you, my precious readers - it was, by the way, the post that got me the nomination for the "Fascination Award" (see previous two posts for more info about that).
Roughly speaking, the concept behind my "Fashion Calendar" posts is to present new additions to my wardrobe, preferably in line with the season or some special occasion of the month. This does neither mean that there will be one such post for each month, nor that they will all necessarily feature something new, but I think you get the idea.
This time, I am indeed going to show you two new items I bought this month, these two nighties from H&M:
Now, if you are familiar with H&M, you'll know that nothing that comes from there is ever expensive, and the two nighties were no exception - for both of them together I paid less than 20 Euros (and for reasons of decency, I only model the more modest one and show you the baby doll one only on the hanger - yes, even I know where to draw the line... sometimes!!). Not bad, eh?
My "one in - one out" rule applied, and I got rid of some old frazzled pajamas in exchange for the new nighties. Of course, with it still being a long way to go until those balmy late spring and summer nights, I won't be wearing any of these anytime soon, but that does not matter - at the moment, they sit there in my nightwear-and-sportswear-drawer, and I can look at them and look forward to warmer days (or, rather, nights)!
After the bitterly cold period we've had, the days are now much milder, there has not been any more snow, and this afternoon, for the first time in months, I sat on my window sill with a mug of coffee, soaking up the sun for a blissful five minutes. Or ten.
Yesterday, it was grey and looked as if it was going to rain any minute, so when I went out for lunch, I chose the most sensible footwear for that occasion. But grey skies does not mean a dull outfit - on the contrary, I like to bring some colour into such a day, and wore the very comfortable red plush zip-up I got for Christmas:It did not rain while I was out, but nobody would have been better prepared than I! And isn't it wonderful that spring is now well and truly on its way? There are snowdrops and the pretty tiny yellow flowers called Winterling in German out in people's front gardens, the twigs of the cherry tree in front of my kitchen window have grown some tiny buds already, and I've even heard and seen two buzzards flying across the gardens the other day (with a bunch of crows hot on their heels, but I think the buzzards got away without injury).
