I mentioned on Tuesdays post that i was in a real navy and blacks kind of groove. A happy groove but sometimes its good to break out and wear something different.
I'm not one for pastels at any time of year really, but there's something about this blush pink colour that I'm pretty smitten with.

The cream coatigan and blush pink sweater were just a cheap purchase from Primark. That place just lures me in with its cheap knitwear and sparkly numbers at ridiculous prices. As much as i try and steer clear, the odd piece just magically jumps in to my basket. Terrible i know. But not that terrible as i wanted a little blush in my life and there it was.

The cream coatigan is really lovely too, i just wish it would stop raining long enough for me to wear it out again.

But for now it makes a nice indoor coat and is a marked improvement on spending the day, at my laptop, in my husbands (not even my own) dressing gown.
Which reminds me. I need an actual dressing gown(this one in particular looks snuggly and starry-ness..lovely!)... My Christmas list is growing by the day.. i am worse thatn my 5 year old (I'm just SO excited!!!!)

 F&F Jeans
Burgundy Scarf
Blush Sweater But love this one (the elbow patches are adorable)

F&F Navy Boots

Yosa Berry Earring

  10. I love your pink jumper. It has such a delicate and gentle hue and you've styled it beautifully! The shoes look really classy too. I can't resist Primark knitwear either, so tempting, good prices too.
    I wonder if I can ask you a favour at all please Rachel. Ive entered Lady V London's Hall of Fame competition and in order to win, I need the largest number of likes in Facebook, but I'm not on there. So far friends and lovely blog friends have voted for me but I've got a little way to go to .catch up, is there any chance of a Facebook like at all? Dont worry if not, I know it is cheeky to ask, but I know you are really kind and supportive and I thought I'd try asking!
    I would be very grateful!  Especially as I am now 100 behind the leader!!! Waaaaah!!!!

    1. All done sweetie! An absolute pleasure to support you. I really hope you win. You look stunning!XX

  11. Nice scarf and cute bag :)
