Sunday Morning rain is falling



Happy New year again all! Hope you brought it in with a bang, ours was more a puff than a bang. With kiddies its always a calm event. But we saw it in and i didnt fall asleep! We were watching Absolutely Fabulous and i suddenly heard fireworks, sure enough it was midnight, lol!
Ive got the dreaded feeling, in the pit of my stomach, the feeling that you know work is just round the corner and your free time has gone as if it never had been. I hate that feeling....

Blouse: Peacocks on sale
Skirt: Gap On sale
Cardi: Primark
Necklace: Old
Boots: New Look
Umbrella:Vintage


The birds are back, another animal piece of clothing added to the collection!!!



"im spinnniiinnng in the rain";)



'me new lovely boots that arent really made for the stoopid rain, being lovely suede.

I Super loved this easy going, easy wearing outfit. I felt really comfy and like i had made an effort. Always a winner with me. Plus this skirt runs really big, i bought my usual size, and its huge!! It literally cost me a tenner on sale which i was well chuffed with, and came in well handy with the after christmas binge weight gain. I didn't think i was gunna go mad this year, but ive put on half a stone!! Half a bloody stone!! Grrrr! Well, guess you know what my 1st 2012 goal is!
I do have some other "goals" (im not keen on "resolutions" the pressure is too much, least goals i can aim and hope for the best, and theyre more a guide than a persistent nagging in my mind)
I'll tell you what my plans are next blog, i'm still putting a bit of thought in to it.


Lovely people i need your help. I bought this beautiful vintage 1970's, wool skirt recently for £4 on ebay. Its a beauty, but the christmas colouring of it is making me wonder how the hell im gunna wear this now christmas is done for a whole year!
Any suggestions??? I really would like it to be less festive more winter wear. Im thinking maybe adding the above mustard type blouse to add another colour to take away from the obvious. What d'you think?
All advice gratefully received!! 


Well lovelies, you take care and i'll be back shortly!
See you Soon
Rachel

  6. looking fab as always! I really love your cardi - looks very warm and snuggly! I agree with pp - a solid colour such as black would defo see off any chrimbo-ness with the skirt. Have fun styling it xx

    Love that skirt. I don't see Xmas, just fabulousness. I'd go for a red top and shoes and really play up the brilliantly bright colours. x
