2012- The Recap

Well hello!! I hope you’ve all had a wonderfully Merry Christmas! Its been pretty sweet here! All over and done with for another year, kinda crazy really how fast it all seems to go which has led me on to this post…

Another year nearly over already, boy doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun!

I’ve been looking back through the last year of outfits on this blog and have found myself glad that i blog. It serves as a fantastic diary to look back at and see what i was doing and what i was wearing and generally what i was feeling like on that given day/week/month.

From looking back i can see how my style has developed and yet stayed very true to the very depths of me. Outfits that i conjure up in my mind have translated on to this here very blog and that encourages me to carry on and keep going. 

Here’s a few from favourites from the past 12 months!!


These are some of  my favourites, do you have favourites from your own wardrobe?

My findings retrospectively:

I like red and mustard a lot!

I buy way too many clothes and bags and shoes :[ …Rachel needs to stop shopping

I need more hats (can never have to many if you ask me)

I like dresses

Tights are my security blanket, i just love ’em

I’m going to be thinking over the next few days about what i’ve accomplished in 2012 and what i’d like to aim for in 2013. I think its good to re-evaluate and see where you are and where you wanna be. I’m rubbish at setting strict New years Resolutions.. i always fall off the wagon by the second week in Jan, haha!

And of course you! I can’t forget to mention you lovely lot!

 I could not ask for a more amazing bunch of beautiful souls to encourage me on a daily basis to keep publishing myself on here. The wonderful comments you write warm my heart on a daily basis and have given me confidence in ways i didn’t think possible. Thank you, each and everyone of you, for coming back time and time again to read my ramblings and comment with love and respect. Without you this blog would just be some crazy lady posting random photos of her self in quirky outfits. 

Thank you for making me less of a crazy lady

Much Love
