Actually I lie, there was one day this week when Jon and I took some photos of one particular outfit...but I was sat in my PJs looking at them on my laptop last night and wailing to Jon, "I look bloody horrendous!" "errrrghhhhh I hate every single photo!" "why do I look like a beast in this one?!". The poor guy puts up with a lot...it's not his fault I didn't deliver that day. I don't know if this is something other bloggers are familiar with: you wake up, get ready, go through the usual routine and look in the mirror and think..."I'm just not really feeling it today!"...
I'm know I'm being dramatic but I think as women we all get this; we all have days when it's simply just not happening! Your face isn't sparkling like a vampire, you're feeling a little bloated, your "smizing" just looks creepy, you look miserable instead of 'thoughtful' and the results are well...pretty crap. This photo was the only one to survive the dreaded 'select all and delete' that all terrible shots must fear ...and yes it was taken on my phone and spruced up using Instagram.
I don't even know how Jonathan and I manage to get ourselves into the situations we get ourselves into sometimes! On our way to the cinema we had a little look out for somewhere that would be a nice winter backdrop for todays outfit. After ending up in the middle of nowhere we found this field of newly planted trees...at least I think that's what's going on here.We decided to pull over and take some snaps when a man in a tractor stopped and got out to tell me off to get off his land....eeeek! So I calmly got out of the car and played the damsel in distress card (sometimes it's great being a girl!) and told him I was lost and asked if there was somewhere for me to turn around!
Luckily he didn't speak much English apart from 'Yes' and 'OK' so I told him that I'd go and turn around and got back in the car. So we drove round the corner out of sight "to turn around", jumped out and took some seriously speedy snaps in about 1 minute flat. "QUICK QUICK!! Pose, pose, pose! GO!" "Great! Get in the car" "Oh no wait baby one on my phone too please for instagram!" Blimey girl...talk about getting your priorities right! ha ha
This owl jumper is one of my favourite vintage jumpers. I found this gem in a little pop-up vintage shop at the back burlesque evening I went to. You know how I roll by now...it's got a cute animal...some fabulous embroidery...it's a keeper!I simply love this back of this jumper too where he's asleep. It's very rare to find clothing that pays attention to the back like this.
I'll leave you with this, a very lame owl joke.
Two owls were playing pool. One owl said " Two Hits". The other owl said "Two hits to who?"
You are welcome! ha xx Rebecca xx
