What I Wore: The winds of change are blowing wild and free.

A new year brings my pledge to do what I wore posts more often, whether I'll succeed with managing them regularly I'm not sure, but it definitely is a million times easier roping my lovely boyfriend into taking the photographs for me. We also discovered this pretty little spot not too far from where we live that may just become my new outfit of the day background.



Dress: Boohoo, Blazer: Primark, Shoes: ASOS, Belt: Vintage Shop, Bag: Love Hearts & Crosses
Bracelet: Sailboat, Ahoy! Lipstick: Revlon Cherries in the Snow.  

I'm not entirely sure what to say today! I could tell you about that time this morning when I scooped Ralphie up into my arms and danced around the room with him. He wasn't impressed. I can't say I blame him. Or that I managed to spectacularly spill fizzy cherry all down my pyjamas as I walked upstairs earlier. Magically I managed to avoid spilling any on the carpet. Hello miracle. Oh and I may have lost half of my morning to an iPad app called 'the Sheeps'. Yeah.

Taking these photographs I decided to be arty (note: sarcasm!) and put my bracelet on a tree branch to take a photograph of it. As we merrily finished taking photographs we got in the car and left. Cue me, about 4 hours later, snuggled in my slanket editing these pictures realising that I had left my bracelet on the aforementioned tree branch. Silly me. After the boy finished work we drove back, in the dark, in the hope that we could find it again and sure enough there it was, right where I left it. Moral of the story: don't try and be arty!

  1. Oh you have no idea how much this post made me laugh!! It is EXACTLY the sort of thing I would do!! Hello clumsiness!!

    You look gorgeous as per usual! Love how you make a simple dress look so effortlessly stunning! If I did that, I would look like a tramp! :( Xx

  3. I adore those shoes, so cute! And you make me want to go blonde really badly. I always stuff things up when I try to be 'arty', it makes me feel better to know I'm not alone;P

  4. I love that blazer, can't believe it's Primark! And well done for getting your bracelet back after leaving it on a tree... (that sounds so much like something I would do >.<)

  5. I love your lipstick, the colour really suits you and you look so lovely :)! I usually spill food/drink on myself yet rarely on the carpet, I think that's why people don't mind my clumsyness so much :P! I love your t-bar flats, your coat and your dress (well, everything!) You took the photos in such a beautiful location too. xo

  11. Really love this post! Such beautiful lighting on your photographs with the winter sun. Pretty outfit too!

    I laughed when I read your tweet the other day about leaving your bracelet on the branch. Part of me thinks it would've been nice if it hadn't been there when you went back and someone had magically found it and was wearing it and cherishing it. Imagine if you found such a pretty trinket hanging from a branch while out walking! :D xx

    @The Pampered Sparrow - That definitely would be super cute! I definitely didn't mind too much if it wasn't there when I went back, since I made it myself I could easily make myself another one. I'm just glad it wasn't anything expensive or irreplaceable that I left! eek! Thank you so much!
