Ditsy flowers & Cherries

Hey lovelies,
Hope all’s well!
I am sooo glad to be over with work for a few days, PHEW its been hard work lately… seriously my lil ol’ brain is frazzled (as is my hair it seems!)

I can’t concentrate! 

‘Cos this lil guy wanted to come out and be in mama’s pictures, we had tears and a little red face!

But mama doesnt mind!!

“see daddy i just wanted to be with her”

annndd finish!

Dress: Modcloth

Cardi: Clothing at Tesco

Shoes: Lotta from Stockhom Clogs

Bag: Primark

So these pictures were quickly snapped between stupid heavy showers and at the end of a really long day. Neo was so tired he was stood on the doorstep crying his eyes out, he’s a mamas boy that one.  And apparently a grumpy one tonight!

This dress is a beauty, its by Trollied Dolly and is so lovely on. Paul bought it for me for my birthday in December and it was tight, i then put on a few pounds and i could not do the damn thing up! Since i’ve been healthy eating and watching my calories lately i’ve managed to comfortably get in to this dress… and i love it. Structured, retro and just plain lovely. I didn’t realise until earlier that its actual ditsy flowers and cherries which to me is ridiculously cute!

So technically in my mind it’s now the weekend.. do you have any nice plans?  We have Mia’s athletics competition, our little runner is about to run her little legs as fast as they can go, we also have my nieces 2nd birthday party and i also plan on trying to visit a local car boot sale, weather permitting! so ye, busy bee’s over here! 

Take it easy lovelies and i’ll see you real soon

    You are always such a huge source of inspiration Rachel! I love how you've layered this outfit here and goodness that dress is the prettiest! I definitely would have asked my hubs to get that for me as a bday gift as well if I would have seen it. Your little man is an absolute doll:) xx Marisa

    Oh, I love your dress! I'm a sucker for a pretty peter pan collar, they're my fave! I have a few Trollied Dolly dresses – they're prints are so whimsical and girly! And those clogs, ugh! I could never get tired of seeing them, much less wearing them I bet. 🙂
    Your son is super cute, by the way. I wouldn't mind him crying to be in my pictures either.
    Have a great start to your weekend! (Thursday is the beginning of the weekend in my mind, too.)

    The first thing I noticed was that you looked slimmer – way to go! Always love your looks and that floral number is very chic indeed. But I'm way excited to see your little man, yah!!!

    Love the red and mustard combo, this is just my kind of ideal outfit!
    Nothing wrong with being a mamma's boy, he's adorable!

    Love the dress!! I've always wanted to order from Modcloth but am always wary about shipping etc. I think i might give it a go now I've seen other people order from there. Fab outfit 🙂 Hope it's not too rainy in Wales as im heading back that way on Monday eeeek!

    i love these photos! little neo is so adorable and you two together are precious; i could look at you guys all night (that came out a little creepier than it sounded in my head).
    congrats on losing weight! what a great reward to get to wear such a pretty dress.
    you make it look darling as always. (is this your snow white inspired look?! cos i think it may be….)

    have a lovely weekend.

    p.s. – i love your nails.
