  Oh, these are nice, more see-through than the photo shows, there's a solid short with a mesh trouser leg and the pretty broderie trim.  H&M Wide Broderie-trim Trousers, were £34.99, down to £15.  The new blues on the nails are from H&M too, Moonchild and Lapis Lazuli, £3.99 each.


  H&M have recently been pressured into relabeling/resizing their women's garments in a vanity-sizing type way, that along with my recent return to mere-slip-of-a-girl status and the fact that their sizing was always a bit all-over-the-place anyway, has led to much consternation and faffing about with ordering multiple sizes of same garments.  I'm currently an Extra Small in some of their stuff, a 6 in tops, a 6 in trousers but a 10 in their frocks, to accommodate my still impressive breasts, though they fit in the size 6 tops.  Their sizing is not uniform.  Here are my picks for Summer tops/coverups.  The Tie-hem Viscose Blouse £12.99.  Cotton Shirt in black check £12.99.  Tie-front V-neck Blouse in the snake print, £14.99.  Broderie Anglaise Blouse in white, £14.99.  Crêpe Blouse, was £17.99, down to £8.  Loose-knit Cardigan £8.99.  Strappy Top £12.99.  All obtained with a healthy 15% discount code.


  From ASOS, I love this Petite Cardigan in Crop with Loop Stitch, was £50, down to £25, beautiful blue colour.  And the Pretty Little Thing Basic V Neck T-Shirt Dress in black, £8.


  Staying cozy with a Boohoo Petite Fluffy Knit Jumper £13.50, down from £18.  A light Hooded Jacket from H&M for dog walking in the better weather later in the year, £19.99.


  More about the dog walking.  Warm socks.  These "5 Pairs Womens Socks Wool Thermal Warm Knitting Ladies Socks for Winter" from Amazon, £8.99, are comfy, cozy and wash well, I like them.  As well as an ankle sock I wear an over-the-knee sock over the top of my jeggings.  I've tried a load of the long socks, but found the best Winter warm ones on eBay, being sold by someone by the name of light_hm.  Really thick cable, really thigh-high long, I got the dark grey and the black, £4.33 a pair.  Search for "Extra Long Thigh High Socks Over The Knee OTK Women School Girl Boot Cable LH".


  (Nearly) all about the dog walking, keeping warm and dry.  The Swell Ezra Windbreaker Jacket is rain and wind proof, was £54.99, down to £21.99 at Surfdome.  The Tog24 Craven Waterproof Packaway Jacket, £30, down from £75.  H&M Fleece Outdoor Jacket, £24.99.  The Forclaz Travel 500 Women's Wool Long-Sleeved T-Shirt, made from Marino Wool, £19.99 at Decathlon.  However, it's not all about the dog walking, to celebrate the tremendous return to slip-of-a-girl status there's the H&M Slip Dress, £14.99.  H&M Crepe Blouse £12.99.  Forever 21 Sheer-Trim Woven Top, £14.  Forever 21 Sheer Combo Top, £17.  Forever 21 Round Neck Ts, £6 each.  The H&M Izzy Bizu Quilted Jacket with a hood, was £29.99, down to £12.
