Rambling in the woods... (PICTURE HEAVY)

Not blogging for a few days has been very strange, I have felt completely out of the loop as I have barely been online and I now have all of your lovely blogs to catch up on; both a daunting and exciting prospect! I realised how much time I spend thinking about blogging too as every other thing was blogworthy but my lack of internet meant that I had to just enjoy the moment rather than just try and document it without really experiencing it, does that make any sense?! 

Just for you Laura <3 
I did promise y'all some photos with my new backdrop and with the help of my little sister I have managed to deliver :) I have to say though, my favourite part of being home? Being reunited with my beloved leather jacket, 10 weeks without this is 10 weeks too many! It's definitely one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe!
Dress: H! by Henry Holland, leather jacket: New Look, belt: stolen from my brother, socks: Marks & Spencer, shoes: Dorothy Perkins
My little sister, Isobel and I went out for a walk after dinner and the dappled sunlight was just gorgeous so she became very snap happy. The area where I live is quite isolated which makes getting anywhere an absolute nightmare but it does make for a very pretty backdrop for some outfit posts! Wasn't the sun today absolutely gorgeous? I couldn't believe how warm it was too: it said 24 degrees on the thermometer here :D


There are drystone walls made of gorgeous yellowy Cotswold stone everywhere and literally hundreds of trees absolutely everywhere! Unfortunately some of these photos came out quite dark so I have had to lighten them a bit but hopefully it doesn't look too unnatural or brash? My socks were a bit of a last minute addition as the nettles here are lethal. I learnt the hard way that bare ankles resulted in a lot of stings last time I was home!



Clambering up onto the gate was not my most elegant moment but that camera angle does make my legs look longer, which can't be a bad thing right?! There are so many horrific outtakes from today but I am relatively vain so I am saving them for a 'special' outtakes special post. I'm sure every blogger has a folder full of failed images on their computer judging by the number of snaps it took to get some half decent ones here! :P I like this picture though as it actually wasn't posed and I look quite happy which I like :) I told you I was vain!

Did you make the most of the sunshine? What do you miss most when you are on a 'blogging break'?

I think it can be really liberating to have that break from the internet. Sometimes I'll turn my router and phones off for the entire weekend. I'm twitching for the first hour or so but then I enjoy the weekend just for me.

I really like that dress by the way.
