#Instaoutfits 05 & #Passion4Fashion Linkup

I am so grateful for these daily snaps for today's post. I think I've mentioned before that we shoot my blog photos on a Saturday and Sunday when Salvatore (the husband) is home and then during the week he works away mostly. But sometimes mother nature has other plans, last weekend was the worst weather for standing around and taking photos, hence why we didn't take any. It was hammering rain all weekend long, and gale force winds. So rather than fight it, i sat and read all weekend, snuggled up on the sofa and enjoyed the amazing down time. 
Sometimes you've just got to resign to the fact that it's just not going to happen... 'it' in this case being outfit photos. Needless to say Salvatore was pleased as standing in the rain and wind taking photos of me prancing about in another outfit, is just not on his weekend priority list surprisingly (he's a good sport though). 
So with another month gone by already, its the perfect time to post my daily outfit photos that i do love to do. 
Favourite key pieces for this month? Well pretty much the same as last month, which is good because at least it means I'm getting my money's worth out of the things I've purchased, so pat pat on the back for me.
But my new sort after (and by sort after I mean stalked after.. by me) Whistles Lola dress, which i wore out to lunch this week and freakin' loved it, is a definite favourite.
New boots that work tremendously well with cropped kick flare jeans (more on that next week) and a classic black coat that seems to be on constant rotation.
Bag wise I've been rotating between my Madewell mini Glasgow Satchel and my Yosa grey and black bag, which both go so so well with everything.
And finally this necklace, again... goes with everything. You know me, I'm all about the great, easy, re-mixable pieces. 


Speaking of great pieces, for my next purchase (she says as if shes pulling a rabbit out of hat.. ahh if it only it were that easy) I am smitten with the thought of a Vivienne Westwood bag... especially the cobalt blue crossbody bag(go see, I dare ya not to want it..its divine!).
Such a versatile piece that would work so well for spring with a navy blazer..ahhh spring.

I think it's safe to say I am done with winter now, and i like winter! But all this rain and gale force winds, enough is enough. I want blazers, and loafers and light wash denim.
May start wearing them anyway and just freeze... who am i kidding, I'm a misery when i'm cold.
I'll just mope until the weather decides to change

What have you been buying/loving this past month?

  5. Sometimes it's just impossible isn't it? To get out there and get the photos we need. I have put off posting purely for the reason of no photos, it's so frustrating! But you have put together a fabulous post here, a reminder to keep all that inspiration in one place!

  6. I can relate to your dilemma; my hubby takes my photos, and he's only around at weekends, and then we're at the mercy of the weather. Well, some things are just beyond our control and you just do the best you can, right?

  8. Oh Rachel I hear ya on the weather/outfit photographing situation!! As you know my OH and I have exactly the same set up - all the outfit posts have to be photographed at the weekend (at least till the summer then we can shoot one or two after he's finished work in the evenings in the week). And the weather HAS been bloody awful!! Wind and rain are the bane of my life every weekend...!

    Anyhoo your outfits always are nothing short of fab - I'm still digging the bobbed hair and how effortlessly you put everything together. I ADORE that photo of you and Neo in front of the blue garage door, his little face!!!!!

    Have a great weekend sweetie, so sorry we won't be enjoying your company at Blognix...!

  9. It has been so cold here lately to do outfit shots, with rain as well. I do like what you have to show us here though. I love that look with you and your son and the one of you with the blush cardigan and scarf combo, cute.

  18. There's a really good reason why I don't do outfit round-up posts. I have this thing called an insatiable thirst for shopping and having to see all my indiscretions out there in public may prove too much for me (read: my man) to handle GRIN you have the most amazing line-up of coats, in particular #11. That colour-blocking is spectacular, Rachel!!! xoxo

  19. I can completely understand about he photos as my husband also takes mine, and we can only do them on the weekends. There has been plenty of times when I don't check the weather in advance and I'm left with no new outfit post to share the next week! I love this Insta round up, and that red coat is gorgeous!

  20. Isn't it frustrating when you've got photos planned and the weather won't play ball? I don't mind the cold, it's the wind and rain, I'm so ready for spring now! I'm longing to wear pretty pastels and shoes rather than socks and boots. Hopefully not too long to wait now, fingers crossed!

  21. Rachael, Lovely outfits. Love you in red, love the long tan cardigan, so many great looks. I am not a fan of wind, nor are we great with indoor shots, so I end up waiting . I do like theinstagram shots you too, sometimes we have to get creative huh. I have been buying spring shoes as of late, cant wait for nice weather!

  22. A new Omega Watches is always an event. Especially when it squarely is the launch of a new collection! Let us recall that the Swiss Watches Parisian watchmaker and jeweler is still the most important brand of the Richemont group.The Christian Dior bag has become alike and iconic to Gucci , and something every affected woman have to own. This is the ultimate affluence if it comes to the Louis Vuitton handbags .Good Hermes Handbags Replica auction is a acceptable choice.
