Back to Basics

Hey all,
Yesterday i promised i would be back soon with a post and here i am. Today i got dressed in proper clothes and everything! I gotta say though, i went to my wardrobe and i felt like i'd completely forgotten how to dress myself. I was seriously lacking in the idea department even with all the lovely new additions. 
So what does a girl do when she forgets all her skills? Go back to basics and by that i mean school basics.. knickers and socks help for a start. And then primary colours...


Red, Yellow, Blue


Hubby's handy work on all the photos


Blowing a gale here (again or should i say still!!)

Rain break of 2 minutes is over

Time to take cover




the bits and bobs

le shoes and socks




Back inside in the nice warm

These photos make me laugh. They all look like the "outakes" rather than the keep and use type. 
I was literally just popping to the shops to get medicines for coughing hubby and a few bits and pieces. The weather is horrendous, we haven't had a day with out consistent rain in so long and the wind is ridiculous!! So this did just fiiinne. Tomorrow hopefully i'll have gotten my dressing mojo back and who knows maybe it won't rain... ahh who am i kidding!


Just a side note, skinny jeans and me arent the best of friends, my big ole pear shape(big booty  and thunder thighs, lol) doesnt tend to agree with skinnies, and my athletic(read chunky) calves struggle and feel restricted. Im more of a flares gal, but in this rainy weather my flares drag around and end up soaking. Skinnies are a bit more practical and these Next ones are surprisingly comfy!
Do you ever wear something and think hmm maybe it doesnt look like the waif skinny models but im gunna wear 'em anyway?!! i just did :D And d'you know what i was quite happy doing so too, hee hee!
Living on the wild side me, as always! lol..


going to finish off my spanish pork casserole and glass of cider!

Lots Of Love

  14. cute look with superb color combo dress. your everything is matching perfect to each other. Your socks color and doted pattern is too much beautiful and I love that you have matched your socks with purse, airing and ring. This is really a new trend. I will definitely try this very soon.
