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.
