Hello hello hello! How have you all  been keeping?
Life has been pretty busy (when is it not, amiright?!) and the days just seem to be speading past at lightning speed. But its all good!
I have done zero outfit photos of late, mostly because Hubby has been working so so much and by the time he gets back i am literally in joggers of pj’s with make up wiped off and my full chill mode is on.
So yesterday i grabbed the poor man as soon as he got in to just capture literally what i had on  (which was nothing special) whilst our salmon was cooking in the oven for tea.

Its a super casual outfit as i have been super casual on my days off lately, mostly jeans and shirts. Then these bad boys arrived from Asos and i fell in love!! I first spied these on the lovely Jemma and stalked her on IG and added them to my basket on Asos multiple times, then last week they were reduced and i finally gave in and bought them for myself. I was a bit wary of dungarees on my pear shape body, but i threw caution to the wind and just went for it. And can i just say, they are so damn comfy! Like, do not want to wear anything else ever again, comfy…

 This little guy came out for a nosey (note: i do normally out shoes on my children, i promise!;-) and decided he wanted to get in on the action, which is a regular occurrence.  After a few weeks of tantrums and strops and generally being hard work, he has been a little darling lately. We sit, we play, we cuddle, we read books. Its just the most heart warming, lovely time. I love having his company at the moment (but with a toddler, that could so change at any time!) He cracks me up! Even at 6.15 in the morning when hes stroking my face and saying in his cute little voice ” Mummy, Neo hungey” i just can’t resist scooping him up and squeezing him with cuddles,heehee.

 Speaking of the little guy, i visited his school this morning. You guys, how is this happening!! He starts full time school on September 4th!! I mean how can this be? How is my son old enough for school?!!! Who stole the last (nearly) 3 years?! No fair!!
I got a bit excited, the school is wonderful and i think he will love it too.. fingers crossed. He has a little uniform and everything, its the cutest!

 Anyway moving back to the outfit, have you guys tried dungarees? Do you love or loathe? I felt a bit like a country hick in this get up, but i totally dig that! And the bandanna was a pound from Ebay (the wonder that is) and is really helping with this annoying fringe (bangs) growing out period, which seems to be taking forever. I honestly thought it would be a lot quicker, knowing how fast my hair normally grows. Obviously by hair is a defiant biatch and does the opposite of what i actually want it would appear. Speaking of hair, i get really annoyed with it down at the moment, like it irritates me to the point where i want to cut it all off, do you ever feel like this my fellow long haired lovelies? Ever get irritated with it and want to chop it off?

So its very nearly the weekend folks, bring it on i say! Hope you have a fantastic one!!

    As you can already guess, I feel the exact same way about my hair, and was even saying the same thing last night to a friend (when it was 90 degrees and I was literally melting) that I want to cut it all off. Down is just too much! (Also, I'm considering growing out my bangs, too – in hot weather they tend to wilt against my sweaty forehead and it's not a cute look).
    But holy mama you look so amazingly retro beautiful!!! Hick?! I think not. Total pin up gorgeousness I say. I love this look. Seriously. LOVE.

    p.s. – yay for Neo starting school! I'm sure it's bittersweet 🙂

    I know how you feel! Our second son will be starting school this August, and it's hard for me to believe that I will be a mom of two kids in school! Our daughter will be in school in 3 years . . . so I'll a bit of a break! Your little one is absolutely adorable.

    And you look awesome in dungarees!!

    You and your son are precious, these photos are adorable of you two! I hope he enjoys his new school! I love this casual outfit too, I think the heels are the perfect touch with your overalls (I never knew they were also called dunagrees)! The headband gives the while look a lovely retro feel!

      Is dungarees a british word? Haha i didnt even think! Yes i guess overalls is the american word of them.. who knew the english language could change so much from country to country lol!! Ans thank you lovely, so glad you like it xxx

    Rachel you're looking the best i've seen someone in dungarees! i love the retro theme you've got going on! LOVE!

  5. June 27, 2013 / 2:15 pm

    Pairing the dungarees with the clogs was a great choice – makes them look a lot less casual. You look lovely and the photos with your son are too cute 🙂

  6. June 27, 2013 / 3:02 pm

    Wow, you are rocking the heck out of these lady! x

  7. June 27, 2013 / 3:31 pm

    Oh my gosh Rachel – could you seriously be any cuter? You do look a little country hick chic – which I feel A-OK saying, since I AM a country hick 🙂 It adorable I love the pops of red and your adorable co-model. 🙂 I hear you on the hair hunny! Its 90 degrees and uber humid here these days and I can do nothing with the hair and there is SO MUCH OF IT! I'd love to chop – but then a week later I'd be in tears saying I want it all back. *le sigh* Girl problems. lol

    Wow you look great, you can pull Off those over alls so well! Love he red accents

    Love this outfit! And your son's uniform sounds adorable! Yeah, I totally have moments where I want to chop my hair all off :p my bangs are what usually annoy me the most and now I just pin them out of the way and I can stand them.

    These are SO cute and you look amazing in them! I totally want some now! (especially since I'm pear shaped too and these look so dang cute on you) I love that the bandana and clogs and lips all match, it kind of perfects the look, oh, and those sunnies!!!
    Aw, Neo is such a cutie! He doesn't look old enough for school to me either haha. I love when kids are nice and cuddly.

    You are adorable! this is a trend I am scared of but you make me second guess my fear! 😉
    great photos! xo

  13. June 28, 2013 / 9:42 am

    You look gorgeous! I wish I could pull off dungarees, you've styled them perfectly! xo

    I always think I want long hair–but when it gets to shoulder length, it annoys me so much that I get rid of it. I would totally wear overalls, too–I think you look great in them! And I love your red shoes! They add a bit of spice to the outfit.

  15. June 28, 2013 / 1:14 pm

    This looks SO cute on you! I love the headwrap too! I got so annoyed when I had bangs that I'll probably never have them again, haha. Thanks for linking up 🙂

    HAHA got to love when the kids photo bomb, aww I love, love, love this outfit! Those clogs are beyond cute and you have that women at war vibe which I just adore. I really need full length dungarees xx

  17. July 2, 2013 / 8:38 am

    I love these overalls on you! You look absolutely adorable in them. This whole trend puts me straight back in the 90s, but I like the new more fitted cut of the overalls that are trending right now. Your red shoes are the perfect things to wear with your overalls too. I just love this!

    I love this outfit! It's like Rosie the Riveter chic! I also fixed the grab code for the Favorite Fashion Friday button so that it doesn't come out so huge! Haha. Sorry about that! Thanks for linking up. Hope to see you back this week.
