let it snow.

as it has been for the past week or so. the snow keeps falling off our roof so we have to pretty much climb over a wall of snow to get from our front door to the path... sigh.
i started out wearing lots of layers with my fur coat and being far too hot (i know, wtf), and gradually wore less and less layers underneath it until I was literally only wearing a dress and the coat (and tights and 3 pairs of socks and wellies, but still).
still too hot.

so today, my next thickest winter coat, plus scarf, plus earmuffs (my ears get significantly colder than any part of me by A LONG WAY.), then lots of layers again.
STILL. TOO. HOT.
at least, on the way to uni and during the day; layers much appreciated walking home at 7pm...

coat + wellies from ebay//charity shop shirt//zara jumper//vintage shorts//
ear muffs were either a present from my friend or i borrowed them from her in college and never gave them back. let's call them stolen?//
h&m mittens//asos hand...thing

oh yeah, the hand thing...


literally the first time i've ever seen something on a blog (the blog in question would be 5 inch & up) and exclaimed out loud to no one in particular "WHERE CAN I GET THAT?!? I MUST HAVE IT NOW! IT'S ONLY 12 QUID! I DON'T THINK I CAN AFFORD THAT BUT I DON'T CARE"

thank you ASOS - the S/M appears to be sold out, but note the gaps in the middle/index finger bands; i had to make them myself. all three rings are the same size... i ask you, who the hell has the same size index, middle and ring fingers? the M/L would've been far too big for my ring finger, but the S/M was too small for the other two. not to be beaten, i brought out the scissors (yes, really) and sorted that bad boy out.
thought the slits might get on my nerves by the end of the day, but this slightly less cumbersome than my other (vintage, silver) hand thing and now i have hand things in two colours, so i may be encumbered by hand adornments on pretty much any occasion.

score.

Is there a name for said "Hand Thing"? It sounds a bit meh. What about hand chain? Or hand bracelet? Hmm?
