Today is bleak & chilly and I feel the need for some bright cheeriness. I found this stashed in my drafts and thought I would share...
Time travelling back, before the festivities hit us -Autumn had finally arrived. In a half hearted, feeble, stroppy "but-i-still-want-to-be-summer!!!" kind of way. The Beard and I decided to take a stroll across our local heath.
And as it was not in the slightest bit chilly, despite the leaves upon the ground, I decided to put upon my person my newest charity shop frock. And lean up against a fence. Lazily.
I took this opportunity to give my big old chestnut satchel an outing as it had been feeling rather sorry for itself after the homecoming of my lovely tan one.
I cocked about a bit, whilst the ever patient, border line saintly, Beard took some snaps. I rarely get to do outfit posts outside on account of it being dark (like my mood) when I wake up and dark ( again, like my mood, ahem) when I return home. You will notice this bloggetty holds a lots of mug shots of me in front of the fridge. Sigh.
I adore this new dress. For a hefty £4, it twins my other 400 pence dress rather nicely. I like the boldness of the colour, the simplicity of the print and the fact that it fits my bazumba's in it (a constant quest). I think it also goes rather well with anything mustard.
Which is handy.
Ahhhh.. my brogue-shoe-type-things of browness. I picked these up from New Look last year and they have lasted me well. I spy the high street is continuing to stock this type of shoe, which makes me very happy. Retro looking, comfy and in my size. Whoot! Whoot!
Before we parted from the fence and off across the heath (always keeping an eye out for the free roaming Highland Cattle of Scary McHairy) we decided that we would very much like to live in one of the cottages that are situated nearby.
Alas, no lottery win in the satchel, so we just gazed at them like two forlorn urchins. Weep.
But - HURRAH for dress of four-poundess!!
