A Woman And Her Seal Take A Stroll Through The Snow

The woman is me.  The seal is Mr. Seal of Approval.  And we are taking a stroll through some lovely woods in Cragg Vale in West Yorkshire, England -- a site that at the moment is the closest thing to a winter wonderland I've ever seen.

The outfit I'm wearing is a combination of items from my wardrobe that at first glance don't seem to go together at all -- but somehow they actually work, or at least I think they do.  The mish-mash is meant to be emblematic of my personality I suppose.  If you think of each item as an ingredient, and then you think of mixing all the ingredients, you'd think the final product would be absolutely awful.  But in fact, each is quite essential to the overall recipe.

It was my boyfriend/photographer who came up with the outfit -- and at the start I thought he was mildly insane.  But it goes to show that sometimes mixing and matching and experimenting with different things can create something quite unique.  It goes to show that putting a silly looking woman and her stuffed seal in the snow to take a stroll can lead to something really fun and quirky.

  1. I'll admit that I would never think to pair these clothing items together, and I probably never will because I am a very strict "no polka dots and stripes together" person lol. You pull them off perfectly though. Very bold and very beautiful.

  2. Thank you so much! I will admit it makes me sad to think you won't wear polka dots and stripes though, I'm actually not wearing any polka dots here but I think the two can go together nicely with the right items.

  3. Lol, maybe one day I will be so bold. Last week, I wore leggings for the first time and I received several compliments. So I guess I never know until I try.
