How we Spent a Rainy Day…

The weather isn’t always picture perfect during summer! Today was a miserable sort of day; full of drizzle and overcast skies – definitely not ideal for photographing for a fashion blog! Instead of moping inside, we instead set out on a pre-lunch walk. The dampness started to get the better of us eventually, but just as we decided to leave, an enormous flock of ducks flew down the river. It was truly amazing! I’m so grateful that Barnaby has fast enough reflexes to take photographs – I couldn’t even look away!

I’ve had several comments recently regarding my hair. It’s called a Heidi braid, and I have a tutorial if you would like to learn (it is ridiculously easy, I promise!) I kept warm in a vintage long-sleeved dress and an ASOS blazer. My bag was courtesy of Golden Ponies (I am absolutely obsessed with this bag!) and the shoes were courtesy of Wanted.

    My best friend is in New Zealand for one year and she really loves your country . When she tells me it’s summer, it makes me feel strange because in France, the weather is very bad !!
    See you :)

  3. Actually, that’s my favorite type of weather, and it makes for such a pretty lighting in photos! But you’re right, it’s not ideal for fashion bloggers at all hahaha, as romantic as it may be.

    But really, nice outfit, the braids complement it very well!
