Horse Whisperer

I set out earlier this week with Paul to take some photos as we often do, and we were passing through Llantrisant Common not far from the office. It was a cold grey but dry day, so we pulled over and met some of the most beautiful horses

It was so lovely, they were just so tame and wanted to be petted and probably thought we cometh with food but all i had was my Orla scarf, and lovely or not, i was not parting with that!

 Jeans: F&F: Tesco

Green Sweater: Next

Coat: New Look

Scarf: Orla Kiely for Uniqlo

Shoes: Office: ยฃ5 ebay

Bag: Matalan

Brooch: Vintage

I’ve had this scarf since the Uniqlo/Orla drop and i haven’t worn it. Crazy huh! Its so pretty! It has so many great colours, this outfit came about through things just generally being thrown next to each other, you know when you’re sorting through your washing and the endless pile of clothes that gets shifted around the bedroom to be put away (just me that does that?) well these ended up in a pile next to each other. Then came a light bulb moment, next came the outfit! I love divine inspiration, haha ๐Ÿ™‚

The shoes are a recent eBay bargain, ยฃ5 for next to new (im guessing only worn in doors once perhaps) Office wedge perfect fit shoes. It doesn’t get much better. The thrifting Gods have been good to me of late. I just could do with the money Gods to follow suit, or that money tree to start growing in my garden, that would be greeaat ๐Ÿ˜‰

Isn’t he a beaut, he was just posing up a charm and loving the camera.  Funny story, i am not a natural horsey gal. I think they’re lovely and all, but 3 times i have ridden different horses over the years and 3 times i have fallen off. Which is bizzare as I’m a Sagittarius, i kinda thought i’d be at one with horses!

After they realized that we had to grub they decided to go for the horses arse shots (below), i do not think i’m the next horse whisperer… just awesome scarf wearer, heehee!

    I love the colours you've used in this outfit! Perfect 70s style combo. You are braver than me sitting so near those horses – something about them makes me feel very uneasy unless someone has hold of them by a rein.

    Loving those shoes! & being around horses is surprising peaceful right? I volunteer every other friday at a special needs horse back riding facility and its amazing how the it also relaxes the children.

    What a perfect spot for pictures. There's horse farms around my house and I just love visiting them. I'm not sure if I'm "allowed" to say hi but eh, whatever. They're so pretty. I wish I could own a horse but then my sister reminds me of all the responsibilities I would have…

    I love your outfit btw. It's one of those outfits that unpredictable because of all the colors. Very chic!
