Same Old, Same Old (and winner announcement)

Rather than moaning about the snow and the fact that winter is lingering a little more than is welcome, i though i should just embrace it and go with it. Coats and tights are my thing, i should be rejoicing in the fact i get to wear my faves a little (or a lot) more. Funny though isn't it as Spring or Summer never seem to linger around for extra time do they. Mother Nature, you are a strange old gal...


 So same old same old really.... hat, coat, dress, tights. My standard uniform. No point trying to re-invent the wheel right? Do what makes you happy and bright colours and dresses obviously are it for me. I often think to myself, "should i try something different, bigger, bolder, darker more fashionable" Just really for the sake of it. I think blogging makes me feel like i shouldn't post the same outfit type every post just in-case it bores you my poor readers. But really this is me.. same old same old. I hope you guys don't mind. I won't be wearing what's fresh off the catwalk, never have, never will. I may change as i grow older but even then i hope i stay true to myself whether that be wearing lots of colours or ultimately ending up in black. Who knows..  umm deep thoughts for a sunday afternoon... moving swiftly on :)



I love this Orla Kiely scarf, i put it with all my coats and i just adore it! And well this mustard dress is probably up there in my top 5 favourites. It's great for re-mixing which makes it a definite staple for me.


And in other news, moving date has been put back another week. ARRGGHHHH!! Moving is stressy! I just want it over already. and then i need a holiday, lol!! But in the words of my darling hubby, 
"it will all be over soon. Enjoy the journey as you will never travel the same road twice"... He's a wise one i tell ya! We'll have been married for 3 years on wednesday.... that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside :):):)

  2. Those shoes are lovely. I have to say t-bar sandals are my favourite thing anyway and in a lovely tan colour with little flowers on the front they are perfect. I love your beautiful bright colours. Keep making me smile with them please.

  9. I love all of your outfits Rachel! They give me so much inspiration, and I'd never want you to wear anything other than what makes you..you. Plus, I'm always obsessing over your adorable hats and dress, oh and shoes! Your shoes are ALWAYS amazing! That pink coat is fantastic, and I love it with the mustard color.

    I suppose you could say I wore something special this weekend.. as I took my bridal portraits in my wedding dress. That was kind of crazy feeling, walking around in a garden full of other people that were all staring at me and congratulating me. But, I'm certain we got some amazing shots, so excited to see them!
