Bare Naked Leggies

Hey ladies!!!
Thanks for all your well wishes, they really helped! I’m feeling so much better!
I’ve been working, working, working, and the Bank Holiday Monday has really thrown me out… is it the weekend yet? oh please, please, please let it be!

I first put this together and kindly asked the people of Instagram and twitter  if it was tooo much?
Yay or Nay to the outfit?
But the lovely people spoke and the answer was a resounding YAY! I was pleased as deep down in its complete kookiness i love it.
I mean its got everything on my my what i love to wear list;
Heart prints: CHECK
Lots of colour: CHECK
Comfy Shoes: CHECK
Dress: CHECK
Cardigan: CHECK
So i thought i’d give it a whirl.

Dress: Primark, March of this year
Shoes: New Look
Cardigan: Monsoon (old)
All other bits and pieces are fairly old

Another remix done! The first post with this dress was here and its the dress that made it to Print for the article in Bust magazine. They currently have it up on their website of you’d like to go check it out!
I can picture me remixing this again around christmas time with some green tights and a red cardi! Christmas?! i hear you shriek, haha! yeee it’s just around the corner don’t ya know!!;-)

Well in 24 hours my son turns two! I’m off to go an think about that and hug him extra tight…
Jeez! Where have the past two years gone, I remember him being in my tummy like it was yesterday, some one pass me a tissue…. i’m such a cry baby!

Love to you all xo

    I'd wear the shit out of this outfit in a heartbeat! haha It's one of my (many) favorites of all you've worn. And that cardi just looks so warm and cozy, I wanna snuggle with it!
    I'm a huge cry baby, too. Happy Birthday to your little man! β™₯

    I am loving this! What a combo, it's fantastic! Awww, happy birthday to your little man. 2-3 is a nice age. I still can't believe I have a 3 year old and that I'm about to start filling in school applications! XX

    It is never too much. You are fabulous, my sweet Rachel.

    Awww, happy birthday little one! And congratulations to you, I can't even imagine getting through the first two years of motherhood. I love this dress, in fact I've been thinking about buying it for a couple of months, but I'm still on my super cheap fix and refuse to buy anything full price, even if it is from Primark. You look gorgeous, I love this colour combination on you, it's got just a hint of autumn about it. You're right, this dress will be perfect for remixing all year round xo

    Lovely dress! Great combination too πŸ™‚

    OMG Rachel I love your style!!!

    This cardigan is pretty much the best thing ever. I would wear it every single day of fall if I owned it. And it looks adorable with the dress, which looks like it was made for you!

  15. August 31, 2012 / 9:55 am

    I love it! It's the cardi, I think, that really shakes the oufit up. Beautiful!

    May I simply just say what a comfort to find a person that actually
    understands what they are discussing on the web. You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and
    make it important. More and more people ought to look at this
    and understand this side of the story. I can't believe you are not more popular because you certainly have the gift.
