Flowers by the Tree

Hey you guys (said in my best Goonies impression)
I have missed blogging! Typical really as it is terrible weather with torrential rain which makes shooting pics difficult, thankfully yesterday was dry until the evening so we managed to snap a few in the back garden. But yeh, i am definitely glad to say i feel the blogging urges coming back. I've even started making lists of outfits again which is something i haven't done in a while and the creative juices are flowing again, it feels good! I think i just needed the dust to settle after all the upheaval of the past few months.

 I've had this dress since New Years day, i bought it in the Matalan sale and when i got it home and tried it on, me and hubs both said it just didn't sit right. fast forward 5 months and suddenly i really like it on! Its a great length, and so so pretty and super comfy.

I am also **possibly** growing out my fringe. I'm not sure about this yet, i've loved having it for the past 18 months, but i think with all the changes and the more easy going nature of how im feeling right now, im enjoying being fringe free, i have been letting my hair just dry naturally and going with it. Easy is the new styling for me.
And this jacket , well its been with me about 7 years. It has a hole in the sleeve, but i can't bear to get rid of it, plus its just the kinda of style i am loving right now, i guess country/boho/easy-to-wear style is how i would describe where i'm at right now.

Dress: Matalan
Jacket: Asos ( 7 years old)
Boots  & hat: Next
Amber necklace: Gift from hubby
Belt : Primark
Has your style changed much over the years? How would you describe your style? I'd love to know what you think your own style is.


  1. glad to hear you're feeling the blogging urge again:-) i love the dress and i also think you should grow out your fringe for a change! your hair looks really lovely in these pictures! and, i don't think i have a 'style', i just wear stuff i like, haha! x

  2. Yay glad you've got your blogging mojo back! Love you in hats rachel!

  3. Sweet outfit. I really like your dress. Just cute.

  4. Pretty dress. I'm glad you changed your mind about it just like you did about your blog! I remember reading something on Madewell..."Tomboys who wear dresses"...I think that describes my style pretty well.

  9. My style changes all the time.. I've done the punk look, boho hippie... you name it, I've tried it! I find I feel most like "me" now... and that's from not even trying so hard to find my style... just letting it be more organic! :)
    I NEED a floppy hat! You look lovely!

  10. I loooove this dress! And the way you styled it is really cute :) I have a ton of jackets like that and yes, one has a hole in it :p
    I'm not sure how to describe my style, honestly. I'm so glad that I started my blog because my style has changed so much and I'm really happy how my style is changing. I feel very comfortable with the way I'm dressing right now.

  11. So glad to see you're back to the blogging world. I love this new country/boho/easy-to-wear style you're sporting, it fits you perfectly. That dress looks lovely on you. I don't have a particular 'style' per say, I just enjoy mixing clothes together and coming up with a fun ensemble.

  24. This is such a cute summery look. I like that is has a bit of a country feel to it with the floral dress and boots. Your jacket is wonderful too. I definitely don't blame you for not wanting to part with it.
