Blushing Flamingos!

Hello lovelies,

Did you have a nice weekend?

Yesterday was Mother’s Day here in the UK, so i had a lovely day off from normally daily chores, hubby became a little house hubby for the day and my darling step-daughter bought me a beautiful flamingo scarf. Apparently she saw it and new i’d love it straight away. Girls got taste! Pink flamingos? Yes please!

Scarf: Gift from Mia (from Next)

Shirt dress: Joy on sale

Jean: Old from Next

Shoes& bag: Matalan, both on sale (shoes were £7 and bag £3.50)

So this was my mother’s day outfit 🙂 pretty and casual for all that lazing about i did, and a quick pop to the shops.

The shirt dress is so comfy and this gorgeous coral/blush colour, and currently on sale for £15.

And my new Matalan Mary Jane shoes are super comfy, they are that ideal shade that goes with lots.

If you follow me on Twitter @RachelTheHat, you may have seen that last week i dabbled in a bit of crafting with my lovely sis.

She has set up a gorgeous fabric and habadash online store The Sewing Boutique and we decided to do some crafting out of some of her stock

And fabric backed Holly Hobbie Picture for my nook

Self made skirt

Hubby and Mia thought the skirt looked like a picnic blanket, but i love it anyway! Its the first time i’ve made anything, obviously with A LOT of help from my sis, but i am totally hooked. I’ve picked out 3 more materials from her shop that will be making my next few projects. I’ve got the crafting bug!

Will keep you posted….

Well Hope you all have a great week, i have lots of posts lined up for this week so will see you very soon!! 🙂

Ps: have you entered my THANK YOU GIVEAWAY. Go on, go on, go on!

    ah!! i LOVE this look!!! it may be my favorite outfit of yours to date. the peachy pink color is just so flattering with your skin tone and the jeans look amazing underneath the dress. everything about this outfit is perfect and you look beautiful. and props to your step daughter for choosing such a kitchy-cool scarf for you. it's great!

    sorry i haven't been to visit in a few days. congrats on 100 posts and 200 followers!! that's so awesome 🙂 and i popped over to read your guest post – it's adorably funny. i'm a hoarder too. sometimes it's hard to admit you have a problem. but admitting it is the first step to making more excuses to keep it, amiright?

    happy belated mother's day! i hope you have a wonderful week!
