I'm going to be blunt - mornings are hard for me. Waking up to the sound of an alarm is one of my least favourite things in the world and I really, really don't enjoy extracting myself from the fluffy warm comfort of bed. Inevitably though life has to go on, deadlines need to be met and the day has to be started and over the years of trying desperately to become a morning person there are a few little tricks I've picked up that really help to make a difference.
There's no denying that its absolutely freezing outside at the moment, and the fact that I'm sans jacket in these photos is either a near miracle or bordering on stupidity. I'll go with the former. As much as I love Autumn/Winter style; layering, dark colours and a whole lot of knitwear, it gets to this time of year where I start to miss putting together an outfit without having to consider which coat I'll be paring it with. Wearing lighter shades is also something I've been missing a lot and although, lets face it, I'd be more than happy wearing an all black outfit 99% of the year, I still like to dabble in the occasional pop or colour.
