Hello loves! I hope you are all having a great week!
My week has been super amazing so far the reasons why will all will be revealed in another post later this week. Alfie has also had the week off work so it has been really lovely spending more time with him.
This week I would like rewind to yesterday which was pretty crazy weather wise. I know I was harping on in Sunday’s post about how beautiful the weather, but it has suddenly gone all grey with random spurts of heavy rain and then rays of sunshine early evening. I wish it would make up it’s mind as working out what to wear becomes very difficult as I found out yesterday.
OOTD: Cable knit jumper, Mango, white shirt, H&M, skirt, Zara, tights, House of Fraser, boots, Dune.
After almost roasting in this outfit I later changed into something less wintery and more appropriate for the sunnier temperatures.
Grey tank top, grey, navy skinnies, H&M, blue flip fops, Asda
It felt so great to get out of those heavier clothes, only for it to turn grey again so out came a hoodie. Don’t you just love the British weather.
Now on to this weeks WIAW food porn…
After my workout at the gym I got my day started with a huge mug of earl grey in my brand new Russian doll mug. I love how cute it is!
I then had to try the whole pretzels in the oats thing for breakfast and boy was I not disappointed. I made a bowl of simple oats using water and almond milk and topped it with blueberries, salted pretzels and some mighty maple PB. This was incredible, still love the sweet salty combo!
Later for lunch I made a mega salad which included mixed leaves, spinach, leftover roasted sweet potato and butternut squash, a left over bean salad, 2 boiled eggs, tomatoes and some mango, chilli and apple chutney. Yum!
In the afternoon I snacked on 2 apples to help get me through a mountain of data analysis.
For dinner I fancied a gigantic stir fry. I added mushrooms, green beans, mange tout, onion, sweet corn, and 5 spice tofu with mirin, soy sauce, ume plum vinegar and sesame seed oil. On the side I had some brown rice cooked in coconut milk which made it go almost like rice pudding. This was so good!
The sun was still shining quite late into the evening so for dessert I thought I would get all summery with a bowl of pineapple and strawberries, which really hit the spot.
Then later into the night it got a little chilly so I in need of something warm and comforting like a hot chocolate to help keep the cold at bay.
As you can see it was quite a mixed bag of eats from wintery comfort foods and summery lighter foods. Even my outfits complemented the change it weather conditions throughout the day.
I know I have probably asked this before, but what do you prefer to eat when the weather is hot or cold?
How you dress when the weather is unpredictable throughout the day?
