Seeing Green

Hi lovelies, hope the weekend treated you well. Mine, not so much.

You know when you’re poorly and all you want to do is curl up and go to sleep (between bathroom excursions) well that was me, but i couldn’t do that. We had the in laws coming down and i wanted the house to look like we don’t live in squalor at least some of the time, so in good old British style i plodded on! Cramps and all. Until today, when I quite literally collapsed in bed for 5 hours. So if none of this makes sense, i sorry. My brains still not quite with it …

Green Trench: Ebay complete bargain for Ā£3!! (and i switched the buttons out to these vintage gold ones)

Dress: Yumi  via Oasis

Belt; Dorothy Perkins

Shoes: Lotta

Bag: Chelsea Girl at River Island

Man oh man those skies look ominous! The heavens opened and pretty much haven’t stopped raining since Saturday. As much as i was looking forward to autumn i think i forget what autumn here is actually like. WET! and that’s just no fun.

I wore this on Sunday for the in-laws impending arrival, trying my best to look like the good house wife who looks after their son šŸ˜‰ 

I’m still on a remix-athon at the moment and loving it! This dress is getting its second outing on the ol’ blog-a-roo.  Oh how i love its cute collar and pretty pockets. I’m going to try remix this darling dress again for some winter wear. 

Ok so my brain hurts from all the words,…..zzzz

    Love that dress, that colour is fantastic! Sorry you haven't been feeling so hot, I know the feeling. I hate starting a week feeling like crap. Hope you feel better soon xo

    I remember when you wore this the first time and I was so jelly that I hadn't bought this dress before it sold out. I wanted it badly! But at least I can live vicariously through you and your blog and the way you have brilliantly and colorfully remixed it! ā™„
    As I said on IG, green and yellow (blue too) is definitely one of my favorite color combos of all time, even though I've yet to actually act it out myself for some reason. Anywho, you just look so so pretty in this outfit – it's one of my faves! And I don't remember if I told you but you had once commented on the fact that if the mini cooper in one of my pictures was mine, well it is! So of course we'd be besties if we were in the same town/city/state/COUNTRY! šŸ˜€ Do you have one or do you just love them? If you do have one, what color??
    Anywho, have a lovely rest of your week pretty girl!

    I love your outfit — so many pops of color. Your green jacket is really eye-catching!

  15. August 29, 2012 / 9:34 am

    Yuck, I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well! Hope you recover quickly, that's no fun! I love love LOVE this dress (I probably said that the first time you wore it too) and that trenchcoat is quite the cute steal! You look SO cute despite feeling ill and it looks absolutely beautiful there! Love these photos.
