Hello lovelies! Happy Wednesday to each an every one of you.

I am sat in work freezing my arse off! Seriously, where has spring gone, I know April showers and all, but this is winter weather. There was even snow in wales today in some parts. And just when i’ve packed away all my winter woolies, typical huh!

Hows the weather with you, are you having nice spring weather? I’m a bit perplexed as to what to  wear at the mo… weather plays quite an integral part of me getting dressed as i just hate being cold! But all the shops and now, my wardobe, is all geared up for spring! Whats a girl to do ay? Tips anyone?

At present i have on rotation the 3 jumpers that i kept out for cold emergencies.

This outfit kinda looks autumnal right? But hopefully you can’t blame me with the weather (plus i kinda like these colours all year round!!)

Skirt, Shirt & earrings : Peacocks
Flower cardi: Tesco
Shoes: Seychelles via Modcloth
Bag: Primark

These photos were so awkward! My neighbour decided to have a full on conversation with the builder on his doorstop whilst looking bemused at me posing for pics in the middle of our street. I.felt.silly.

So, ashamedly i grabbed my son and pretended i was having photos with Neo. I know awful huh! I used my son as a prop!! Bad mama!

He didn’t wanna know (never work with children or animals right? Especially if you’re trying to cover the fact your having photos taken of yourself for fashion blog! LOL!)

The rest of the photos are of him diving out of my arms to try and do a quick run away up the street.

After these pics yesterday i ate my weight in food. Red Hot World Buffet was sooo good. Problem is, in a normal restaurant you have one main course, there i have 3 plus desert. I know piggy pig! 

Needless to say i’ve been eating fruit & salad today to make up for all the calories in-taken yesterday!

Well lovelies, i’m off for my afternoon coffee at my desk 🙂 

Speak soon

Ps are we friends on Twitter? I’m @RachelTheHat, lets chat!

    hi rach
    first of all, you look very autumnal and the colors are beautiful! you look all vintage-y and pretty.

    and second, isn't it funny how we all feel less strange when we're posing for photos with someone (anyone!) else? as if there's more justification for having your photo taken when you're with someone else – even if it's just a friend's dog or perhaps in your case a random horse, because that's the kind of fun world you live in apparently.

    My photos always turn out awkward when people are around. Sometimes I even have trouble if someone else is taking my picture.
