happy (Casual) Friday! & Passion 4 Fashion Linkup!

Happy Friday my Lovelies! Just a casual outfit I bring you today, casual but with some nice finishing touches is how I like to think of it.
Just jeans and a cream boxy top, adding in a punch of colour with this rather wonderful split hem kimono sleeve cardigan in a lovely bright orange, then a lovely latte colour hat that is the most wonderful fit and was super cheap from primark! Finishing off with these really gorgeous comfy Duo Idaho ankle boots, a new tortoise shell Yosa necklace, a clash of colour with the burgundy bag wrapped with a Yosa leopard print scarf. This has kind of been my everyday uniform this week. What with it being half term and puppy training… i think i forgot to mention… we got a puppy!!!!! Think i will do an official meet he pooch post for you all if you don’r mind;) But yes, needless to say this week has been hectic! running around after a puppy is exhausting! But in good news, i lost a couple of lbs that i had been wanting to shed to hit my goal weight and now i am celebrating with some good ol’ bottled beer.. Cheers to the weekend folks! Are you doing anything nice?

    This whole outfit is super pretty, Rachel – the sweater is like my most favorite shade of orange ever. And how sweet that you guys got a puppy!!! That is definitely super exciting!! She's adorable! Can't wait to hear more about her. 🙂

    P.S. Just wanted to tell ya that I sent you a quick email and have been having trouble sending emails from my account recently so in case you didn't get it, let me know and I'll re-send it.

    P.P.S Happy Halloween! (Not sure if you guys celebrate it…I don't, really but I figure I might as well acknowledge it anyhow haha!)

      Hi Lovely! Expect a detailed email back from me tomorrow. So sorry for the delay, tis been half term madness over here! Add a puppy in to the mix and well, i am just going crazy!haha! Roll on Monday when some normality shall begin again 🙂 but yes tomorrow you shall receive an email from me!:)
      I totally agree, this shade of orange is the best isn't it! O have a very similar sweater that i love too but only comes out in the thick of winter as its quite bulky!

    Love the orange with the purple. Such a fun comfy look.I love you in hats. You wear them so well. Hope you have a great weekend!

      Thanks Ashley, i am a sucker for clashing colours on occasion, although lately i have very much been drawn to blacks, whites and greys, so this colourful comfy outfit was a nice change and equally pleasing as my monochromatic clothes :)xx

    The sweater, the hat, the booties, the bag with its scarf – I love it all. All these rich textures, layers and colors all work for Fall. Such a fun, chic, relaxed, casual Fall Outfit Rachel. Pleasure joining the link-up as every Friday.

    Happy Halloween! <3 Ada.

    Really love this Rachel! I need to check those jeans out as I need a pair of mid blue skinnies & they go great with those gorgeous boots! The orange cardy looks fab on you! Have a lovely weekend! <3 Andrea xx

      thanks lovely, i actually got the jeans on sale for £7 recently, but they are still in tesco at the mo, they are the high rise new shape (new to tesco) and they are so stretchy and comfy but don't go saggy at the bum or knees, which makes them perfect in my eyes lol!! Hope you and the family have had a lovely weekend Andrea
