Cuffed


So winter is definitely here. Last week I was shivering in my boots as I stepped out of my house and throwing on more layers than was possible to look cute in. 

I mean, I like playing around with clothes and looks but who actually looks bomb in 4 layers of mis-matched colours, topped off with a scarf? Luckily when I shot this look, it wasn't sub-zero outside. I've tried to adapt but let's be honest, I'm made for warmer climates. This top is great because it reminds me of the sun (can you tell I'm trying to add more colour to my wardrobe?) but ironically, black clothing keeps you warmer. In any case, you can cop one from New Look in more colours - also it was less than £10! 



Get The Look:
Top - New Look // Trousers - New Look // Boots - New Look  (similar) // Jacket - Bershka (similar, similar)

Speaking of keeping warm, I know we are also welllll into cuffing season right now. For those who don't know what that is, I shall explain. 'Tis the time of year when the leaves start to fall, the days get shorter and people long to find themselves coupled, paired up, tied down - "cuffed". Has anyone noticed this apparent trend happening this year or is anyone cuffed? Let me know in the comments.

Personally, I will not be partaking in this for a number of reasons - some of which I will share:

1. Winter is the time of year that I actually get productive. I don't why - maybe it has to do with the new year and trying to maintain resolutions but I feel as though partaking in cuffing season would slow down  this process. Focusing on a love life means focusing some of your time and energy on another person and I find myself scrambling for both all too often. 


2. "Single people have more fun" - Honestly, I'm not sure this is true in general. I know people that thrive in relationships and people who are having a blast out of them. As for me, currently, this is a fact. Has anyone seen "She's Gotta Have It"? The new Netflix tv show adapted from the Indie film. The protagonist describes herself as a "sex positive, polyamorous, pansexual" - she doesn't want to be tied down, owned or possessed. Basically, she knows what she wants and is having a great time. I would definitely not describe myself as that but I know that I am happy not being tied down, not dating and instead, focusing on finding out what I want out of life and pursuing my goals (sorry mum, no potential husband in the picture for a whileeee).


3. The winter really is a silly reason for getting "cuffed". If you're cold, invest in a cute ass coat instead of a whole ass boyfriend (or girlfriend) - although there are fun couple-y things to do in winter - like ice skating.


All in all, I'm rambling. I might get cuffed a month or two months from now and regret this post. For now though, I'm good haha. 

P.S. If you're wondering why my boots are so muddy, that's another story, involving a messy but fun festival.
