my favourite winter colour

Today was a perfect opportunity to wear this coat I picked up in the January sales. A lovely sunny Sunday but with a chilly wind. We wanted to make the most of this glorious day so we had a wander round a beautiful gallery not too far from us. 

I have a wardrobe full of maroon; it is my go to colour choice over the winter months. I paired it with a blue lace dress and my comfy and warm maroon boots. Lace dresses are a big favourite of mine, I find them very versatile and perfect for many occasions. If you read my blog you will know I have quite a selection! What other outfits do you think would work with this coat? I would love to hear your ideas. 

After a lovely visit to the gallery we were feeling a little peckish and there is only one place I wanted to go and that was Marmadukes. This is one of my favourite little cafes to eat in and I would highly recommend it.

It is so quaint and funky inside and the sandwiches are just heaven! I can't wait to go back and try their eggs benedict. They even have blankets so you can sit outside when it is chilly. I love it!

Linking up with Elena at Monday Bloom, Doranda at Watch What I'm Wearing and Lauren at Style Elixir.

Have a great Monday!

rainy sunday

What to do with myself on a rainy Sunday?

I love to pass the time reading in one of my favourite places in the house; our bedroom window seat. From here I read, daydream, plan ideas for blog posts and people watch. The book I am reading at the moment is 'A Year in High Heels.' I love this book, it is a twelve month guide to year round fabulousness!

Experimenting with new recipes is another favourite hobby of mine, I have more time to cook or bake something a little more elaborate. Tonight S and I are cooking a meal together, he will usually concentrate on the main and I will prepare the dessert.

As I am sat here watching the world go by, the rain has turned to snow so I think its time for a hot chocolate with a dash of Baileys Irish Cream (a small touch for St Patrick's Day.)

What do you do on rainy Sundays?
