Pretty Confused What I Wore Pretty Confused What I Wore
Why is it songs just sound better in French? Strike that, why does pretty much everything sounds better in French? Maybe it's just because I'm crazy in love with a French hippy but I really think it is the most romantic language. Unfortunately I wasn't in France for these photos - I just love the song that inspired this post title. These were taken a couple of weeks ago before the weather got so suddenly cold & I love this outfit. Pretty but practical for walking the pups. The blouse is a newly thrifted item and, what can I say, I think I might be becoming a hat person - this was has shown up a couple of times already this Autumn. I don't know if it comes across well in the photos but the lighting was absolutely crazy when we were taking these too. Stunning but so difficult to capture on the screen!

I really wanted to share these photos because this wee spot has turned up a couple of times in my blog posts in the past, in fact it was in two of my very first posts here and here. It's such a wonderful location although every time I take photos here I worry the pier won't take my weight. Visiting locations again is also the perfect excuse to go back and look at old blog posts, now that I've been doing it for a while. It's both nostalgic and cringe-worthy. 2011 seems so so long ago but it is nice to see how my writing style and photography has improved. I was so nervous about sharing stuff back then and now blogging just seems like a way of life. I'm so glad I got over my fear as well because there are so many little moments I might have forgotten otherwise.

I've got a very pleasant week coming up starting today. I've unintentionally been hoarding up my holiday time at work and we suddenly realised I had a couple of weeks to take before the end of the year. It definitely wasn't planned but I'm not due back until the 27th and I have no idea what I am going to do with my time. Obviously with the dogs holidaying is pretty difficult and LF will probably be doing his usual shifts so I won't be going away anywhere but I am looking forward to a little stay-cation. I'm going to try and write a bunch of blog posts, have a couple of crafty days and generally relax and pamper myself a bit. It feels like a ridiculously long span of time to not have anything planned for! I've picked up some wool and am hoping to DIY my own loom tonight so that should keep me busy for a little while. Other than that I don't really know. I'm looking forward to it though. Pretty Confused What I Wore Pretty Confused What I Wore
