If You Go Down to The Woods Today….

… you’ll find me!
well, thats a fib, ‘cos this was actually yesterday, we were out walking Holly in our lunch break at this lovely little woods down the road from my office. I have to say having a dog has been so lovely. We go out walking so much more and take a break from the office for a walk and fresh air. It rained just as we got back, lucky enough!
Now, if you are currently in a country that is enjoying the hot weather, please pretend that i am an Antipodean and that i actually reside in a cold country that is currently having winter, as i certainly look like im dressed for it.
In the mornings its chilly, by mid day its so humid but yet that damn rain keeps coming! whats a girl to do??

Dress & Boots: Next both  quite old

Cardi: So old i dont remember 

Bag: Matalan

Belt: Vintage from El Vintage

Sorry about the photo bomb, i was having a tough time picking my favourites, which honestly? Never happens! I normally pick the best of a bad bunch, you know when your looking at photos of yourself, i always see the flaws! But i just love these photos, the contrast of my browns and creams against the beautiful greenery is just lovely. 

So i’m officially on holiday for the next week or so! Being your own boss has advantages (like taking your doggy to work and walking her at lunch time!) but it can also be a bummer as i still have things i gotta do, pay the bills, man the accounts, you know, the rubbish stuff. But i hope to be a leeeettlle bit free from it for a few days! ooooo i feel giddy with the possibilities of things i can do, read, make, plan. … I’ll let you know how that goes!

    Love that cardi, it looks so cosy which is such a great thing about wooly items when the weather starts to turn. I always get autumnal excitement about wooly layers.

    I love the photos that show how your eyes just pop next to your skin and pretty brown hair! You look lovely, Rachel. And having a dog is fun and walking them is fun…in the beginning. LOL After a while it gets to be a pain in the ass, especially when they take forever being picky when they look for a place to squat. 🙂

    Ok, Rachel, you have blown me away. I L.O.V.E. this outfit! Like seriously, love. And btw, did I mention that I love it? I want every single component of this look – the dress, the sweater, the boots, the tights, the bag, the necklace, the bangs 🙂 It's got to be one of my most favorite outfits you've ever worn! J'adore.

    p.s. – (I love it!)
