Bare legs

Morning/Afternoon/Evening To you all!
I'm feeling rather chipper as the sun is out and its just a wonderfully sunny day.
I'm in the office and as i type the boys are all working hard (apparently i'm not it seems as i'm blogging?!) on re arraging our whole office and making it work better for us all. I'm excited. Me and hub's had date night last night and we discussed how we wanted to take things forward in the business and our home life. The sunshine is making us super pro active! And it feels good. We want our office to be some where we go to  and feel inspired. We want our home to be some where we feel happy and relaxed. So we are working on this!!
And did i mention, the sun is out? wooohoooo, hahaha :)







Dress & Pink pumps (that i love but you can hardly see): Peacocks
Cardi: Clothing at tesco
Bag: Matalan
Broach: Vintage
Jewellery: Random (and mostly very cheap!)

I just love the print on this dress. Its so retro funky and just on the knee which is the perfect length for me. Wierdly i love this outfit, but don't love the photos, they just don't "pop"like i was hoping them too. But hey ho, if you saw me in real life you had a treat for the eyes with this dress :)
This marks the first bare legs occasion of the year. Which is pretty significant if you ask any Brit!
Me and hubs, as mentioned, had date night which was just lovely. We had our usual meal which was delish, and i had my first beer in 4 months. I had two (wonderfully yummy) Corona's and felt tipsy! I'm such a light weight hee hee! Then what we normally do is watch a film in the cinema. The plan was the new Johnny Depp movie, but we missed the times, so we went for a drive. And d'you know what, i'm glad we did. We drove to the Gower in Swansea and walked along the beach for ages whilst the sun set. It was beautiful. Being next to the water is my most favourite place. As kids we were always by the sea as we grew up at Barry Island. So being back by the sea felt so calming. Really great for the soul.
I'm learning to let go of the stressy stuff that was oh so overwhelming, and roll with the changes. Take the highs with the lows and just not let things get to me. This is far easier said than done, but having had the past 3 weeks carrying so much stress, i'm tired and in need of change. And now is the time.
Maybe its the sunshine, that current bun is sure capable of some magnificent stuff!

Anyway ladies, thats deep enough for a Wednesday afternoon.
Tonight we're having burgers and veggie burgers with the kids... yum yum get in my tum!
Have yourselves a wonderful day/night

  1. Well your happiness certainly shows in your outfit!! You look like a Disney character, so beautiful and sweet. The turquoise belt really pops against the dress. You look perfect.
    And yay for positive attitude! I think I need to take a page from your book as well, but like you said - much easier said than done. Still, it helps to be reminded to let the little stuff go.

    Happy SUNNY Wednesday, Rachel!!

  3. That dress is amazing. Perfect for a sunny day! We had sun for a bit; it's gone away now. Boo.

    I hate outfits that feel and IMO look so good in person but that I can't get to photograph well. I trust this looks good though because I think it looks great in the photos too!

  8. I like your combination of colors! Glad you had a nice sunny day. Best wishes for your business. I am trying to kick mine up a notch, too, to borrow a phrase from Emeril.

  9. You sound so positive my sis! So lovely to hear :)

    Seeing sun and blue sky is very inspiring though, makes you look at things differently and with a happy heart.

    Long may the stress be gone and the blue sky stay!!
