I was perched outside in the pouring rain trying to make myself a sail....

Boo! The sun has officially left! If you are British, you know what this means. The end of summer. Now, people may think I'm being dramatic, but it wouldn't be the first time! The last couple of years, we seem to have scorching spring (a few weeks ago, we were hotter than the sahara desert!), followed by mild, wet  summers. I'm just sayin'! 
On the plus side, I get to wear my wellys and raincoat! Every cloud has a silver lining (or a perfect outfit in my case!). The welly's are just amazing! The have bows at the back. I love all things beautiful and as a child I even had multicoloured wellys and a rain mac. I'll post a picture on here sometime! 
So this picture was taken yesterday (Saturday), whilst me and my Beau were going to the DIY shop to buy paint! We are painting the bedroom and its going to look great. So excited!

Umbrella- Topshop.
Dress- Monsoon.
Coat- Tesco.
Welly's- Joules.
Bag- Mulberry.
Leggings- Primark.

The rain has made them a little tatty, but I still adore the ribbons!

You may not be able to see in the main pictures, so I thought I'd just show them up close. 
The silver earrings and matching bracelet were a gift from my brother on a birthday. He's freakishly amazing at buying jewellery! The pearl bracelet was really cheap, about £2-£3. 
I love it! So dainty and I think it looks expensive. Maybe its just me....

Enjoy Guys!

  3. I know what you mean, it sucks that it's not so hot anymore. Yesterday it was raining where I live and today the sun is out but it's still cold. Typical british weather.
