Or to give them their latin name, Impatiens Walleriana, the familiar, colourful perennial flower that the print on this H&M dress reminds me of.
I get to this time of year and desperately miss blossoming flowers and warmth, light evenings and sitting outside. I'm trying to focus on mulled drinks, cosy evenings in slippers and blankets and pub quizzes next to a roaring fire but I always find winter hard.
I bought this dress in an attempt to wear more summery prints and colours, to try and actively push away the cold, dark days with a shop-bought busy print that reminds me of spring's garden borders.
I own two of these jersey H&M dresses now and if they release them in more colours, I'll buy more. They are £14.99, not too short, just warm enough and the easiest option to chuck on for work in the early, early mornings.
How are you coping with this weather? Or are you suffering like me? I'd love some cold-weather tips because I currently feel like hibernating for the next four months!
