Frock Fridays - Friday's Fancies

I recently found about Long Distance Loving's Friday's Fancies series from the lovely Joelle, and I thought it would be fun to join up this week!  I usually like doing my own thing for Frock Fridays, but it's nice to have some structure sometimes, isn't it?  Besides, I hope that you'll discover some great new blogs through the link-up; make sure to check it out.

The theme for this week is winter wonderland... here goes!  (And yes, I realize that there is no frock to be found on this post.  It's fine.  Go with it.)

My idea of a winter wonderland on this green and pleasant island is a weekend in Suffolk: walks on the heath with the family, pints at the pub with friends, and evenings by the fire with the cats.  It hasn't snowed yet in London or by the coast, but it is cold and has rained and frosted quite a bit - such is winter in the south-east of England.  Wellies, therefore, are necessary, and these Hunter Vintage Union Jack boots are adorable.  You've got to keep your toes warm, so chunky socks are also a must, and these Isabel Marant jeans are the best skinny-but-not-skintight pair for tucking into your boots.  I love the asymmetric zipper of this Paul & Joe Sister knit cardigan, which would be perfect over a basic white tank.  The high fashion (well, in my world!) piece of this ensemble is the J Crew cape - classic!

(And yes, I am now even more obsessed with Polyvore having learned the extent of what it can do!)
