Hello Lovely people!

Well it’s a funny old time of year, All the shops are luring me in with lovely Autumnal colours and clothes and it appears Wales is having it’s few days of summer! This equals a confused recipe for dressing and shopping! I’ve been buying a few new pieces for the colder months(that most days appear to already be here) and being impatient I want to wear them now*spoilt brat syndrome* However the sun in this country is such a rarity I’ll happily grab my Summer dresses with both hands and switch on Summer mode(temporarily i can assure you, give it a few days and I will be sporting coats and wellies yet again)

Hub’s and I have date night (Going to see a young lad, don’t know if you’ve heard of him, Harry Potter ??!) 
And I’ve been looking forward to wearing this little beauty of a dress
For me this is my new No. 1! My new favourite, My new good times dress. Reason being, it is just so easy! I love easy, I’m an easy kinda gal (ahem!) 
It’s got sucha a lovely Vintage, boho feel, which is just up my terraced row street (Welcome to The Rhondda Valley!)

Transitional dress:

Paired with my espadrilles (£10 bargain from River Island) and a light weight cardigan(cos my God, the cinema I go to feels like Antarctica, Air Con overload!)

Cardi also great for my BW (bingo wings :o(   )

Necklace, my fav, is Vintage from this amazing place in Cardiff called The Pumphouse (Think of Aladdin’s cave and your there)


I’m looking forward to remixing this with thick navy tights, warm wooly cardi and tan boots for Autumn/ winter.

Today my lil lovely Neo was with his grandparents, he had a wale of a time, at the park, feeding the ducks, picnics.. Very jealous! 

My trendy Pop’s in his Aviators, my Neo, now walking 8 whole steps. So funny, he looks like Frankenstein when he walks, with his stompy feet and out-stretched arms. 

Whilst he was with the g-p’s, I worked, boring, boring and guess what, more boring.
I did escape for an hour and pick up a fabulous brown cord jacket in the local charity shop for £2! Which was amazing seeing as i was looking for one everywhere last winter!! (pic’s to come)
And i also spotted this little beauty

Cute or what! Peacocks again for this little treasure. 
Have you guys got any “transitional” pieces? 

So I’m off now to go and see that film about a wizard, I forget it’s name ;o) Anyone else seen it yet? Any good? Or am I going to walk out of there thinking that that’s 2 hours of my life I’m not getting back?

    You look lovely in this dress! I bet it's going to be a fantastic layering piece for the colder months. Can't wait to see how you remix it 🙂

    Aw thanks Mary! I hate photos of myself, I'm still not used to having them taken.
    I can't wait to layer this little beauty up come a/w!
    Thanks so much for stopping by
    Rachel 🙂
