What I Wore: Here Comes The Sun

pretty confused here comes the sun pretty confused here comes the sun

These photos are actually from a couple of weeks ago, back when Spring was just starting. I can't believe the difference a few weeks can make. It's actually quite bizarre, yesterday it was warm enough to walk around without bare arms, but there still aren't leaves on the trees. It makes our walks in the part slightly surreal. I've been really enjoying getting some sun though, you never know, it could rain for the whole of June, July and August. 

We've had a mad but wonderful week with a zombie birthday party over the weekend and one of my favourite kiddos ever up visiting for the week. I'm definitely going to use it as an excuse to act like a kid, maybe try and sneak her away to the zoo and spoil her with toys. I'm a sucker for a cute face. Besides, what could be better than having an excuse to have a water fight in the sun? I'm definitely not ready for my own sprogs yet, but I do enjoy being around them for small amounts of time.

Can you guys see that dog hair on my feet? I know pointing it out probably isn't the best idea but I'm just in absolute shock and how much hair can come off Mania! She got really fluffy a few weeks ago and then suddenly lost it all. She looks about half the size now! I'm not usually bothered by the fact the dogs shed all the time, but it's almost embarrassing to go out. I've tried tape and lint removers but nothing seems to work. Any advice from any fellow pet owners out there? I know it won't last much longer, but man am I getting sick of looking like a crazy hair covered lady. 

One of the big things I am looking forward to with the weather getting better is pulling out some Summer items. Especially some of the stuff I won last year. I got this scarf (that I'm using as a band for my hat) in a competition from the girls at Oh So Lovely, it's from Swan Song Vintage and I absolutely adore the subtle pale green and blue pattern. I've also got a pair of sunglasses from Wilde Asher that I can't wait to wear out, they are from the same competition - back in my brief lucky phase. 

Well this post has been all over the place, well done if you managed to get through it with whiplash. Hope you are all having a great week!
